I travelled to Nepal during the 3rd week of 2017 with my girlfriend. On board the airplane enroute to Nepal we met another Singaporean couple after having some conversation we decided to also share a taxi to Kathmandu central after landing in Nepal.
It was at the arrival gate of the airport that we were greeted by Mr Kisan (Owner of Good Vibe Adventure). He was eloquent and seemed to be able to speak many languages. He was also friends with a taxi driver who ferried all 4 of us to Thamel street, along the way we soon learned that he was able to arrange hiking trips/tours in Nepal for us as at competitive prices.
After much discussion in his office at Thamel, we decided to sign up for the ABC (Annapurna Base Camp) 8D/7N package from him. This came with a guide + porter.
Our guide and porter were professional, honest & polite nepalis people. We are thankful for their guidance and care during the entire hike. They always ensured there was someone at the front to look after the faster hikers and someone at the back to care for the slower ones. The ABC trek was quite an eye opener for me personally, the scenery really starts to get very beautiful on the second and last day where you will hike from Deurali (3200m) to MBC and finally to ABC (4180m).
We only took 2 days to descent from ABC to Nayapul. Personally i felt this should have been done in 3 days as we were on the road for almost the whole day, but there was snow on day 1 so that contributed to the extended hiking time as well.
Also we would have appreciated a much more detailed documented itinerary as well, instead of itinerary via word of mouth mostly.
But nevertheless we still highly recommend Good Vibe Adventure to plan your next hiking trip/adventure. Their guides & porters are knowledgable and good honest people.
If we return to Nepal again, we will definitely not hesitate to approach Good Vibe again. Thanks guys!! :)
