Annapurna Circuit with Peregrine Treks: Greatest experience!

I was doing Annapurna Circuit for the first time in my life and have been a bit reluctant because of the fact that at the time I wanted to start, it was off season. It was because of this that I decided to make this tour with a guide and my choice was Peregrine Treks because of a recommendation I received from German couple I met in Kathmandu.

I was really pleased by the way the agency handled this and moreover, I had a great guide Mingmar, who was knowledgeable and did everything to accommodate me and because of his open-mindedness, we had much fun with other travelers.I would definitely recommend Peregrine Treks and Expedition and especially Mingmar for doing Trekking in the Himalaya! You‘re in good hands
