Banda & family, Annapurna Base Camp October 2018Thank you once again for all your help. We had the most amazing experience which would not have been possible without the flawless arrangements which you and your team organised. The flexibility due to the unexpected hurdles were much appreciated. Kumar the trek guideā€™s patience and calmness was just astounding- my daughter has specifically asked for him should she attempt future ventures. All the porters were also extremely helpful and they all made sure our trip was as comfortable as possible. We would definitely request your help again in the future. Thank you once again. A photo at the ABC with us, Kumar and his team. Regards Bandana and family, from UK and US Annapurna Base Camp Trek October 2018testimonials

Amanda & Letizia family on Dunhuang Silk Route June 2015Thank you for giving us a wonderful tour. The trip would be in our minds for a long time, we had a fantastic visit! The guides were very professional and overall, beside Airlines, the transportation and connections were seamless. We had a deeply engaging and meaningful time, seeing China from completely different perspective. We really enjoyed our time and wished we had a few more days. I will be recommending this trip to my other friends and family. Thanks again for helping us get out there - Amanda, Letizia family California US.testimonials

Roger & Vicki, Mississauga, CanadaWe are home in Canada and are well and fit. Thank you Asian Bhrikuti Holidays so much for organizing and presenting such a great trip for us. We were extremely happy with our itinerary as too with all the guides and porters that waited on us hand and foot. The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek was beautiful and with Jangbu at the helm it seemed effortless for us and he was in a great leadership roll and got us great accommodation and food, he is indeed a super person as were the porters also. We would definitely recommend Asian Encounters to others. Thanks again! Cheers, Roger & Vicki T, Mississauga, Canadatestimonials

Dieter Gutmann Hamburg GermanyIt is all a matter of trust! In 30 years I've been on eight treks from Annapurna to Kanchanjunga range, a tour in Tibet, three days rafting down Trishuli river; tiger safaris in Chitwan, Bardiya and Suklaphanta, a tailor made five days' safari trek through Churia range inside Chitwan National Park, all organized in perfect and secure style by William Ma and his Asian Bhrikuti team. Select your tour operator carefully as in some cases you would literally hand over your life in their hands! Enjoy your thrills and adventure with a professional tour operator! - Dieter Guttmann, Hamburg, Germanytestimonials

Mary Chatfield Seattle USI first met William and Reenchen owners of the company in 1993 on a trip to Nepal with a travel agent. Subsequently I have done six more treks with them. Some alone, one with a friend and one with my three daughters. They have always done a superb job of organizing my treks and their staffs have been just great. Over the course of almost 20 years I have become friends with them and a member of their extended family! I have no hesitation in recommending them to arrange for hotels, treks and any other tours. Besides Nepal, they have organised trips for me to northern India. My treks through their agency to Annapurna Circuit, Everest, Langtang, Mustang, Phaplu, Jiri to Lukla, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Kalimpong - all bring back fond memories for me. Besides being such good friends, they continue to be very professional in their services.testimonials

I too would like to express a heartfelt thanks to Joy and William Ma and their staff for arranging and re-arranging the trip. The experience was completely stunning! And I also want to give a big thanks to Jangbu Lama as well as Nima and Jigmy (sp?) for their good will, hard work and great sense of humor and patience throughout our trip. I just downloaded the last of the photographs last night and some of them, even many are incredibly stunning! I stayed up until quite late reviewing many of them more than once. I've never seen anything to compare to the valleys and mountains that we walked through! I also want to express thanks and gratitude to everyone on the trip for their patience and graciousness during an expedition that seemed to change just about every day if not more often than that. It's not often in my experience that a group of people who don't really know one another is able to stay positive and in good humor when faced with so much uncertainty. I must say that given the possibilities for rain, getting stuck in Lukla, getting stuck out of Lukla, getting stuck in some camp or a doctor's office, not to mention the discomfort of being there- there were a lot of things that could have gone wrong. But in the big picture, just about everything was incredibly beautiful. From the photographs, it looks like every mountain was the star of the trip! I would be happy to share photos with any of the group. Bruce on Joy & Friends Everest Base Camp trek May 2014testimonials
