    We've been there. Nepal certainly is the best destination for trekking and Index Adventure the best travel partner. We're not writing to convince, just to share how we felt. Our journey into the Himalayas of Nepal started in 2017. We did the famous Annapurna Circuit then. This year was our second trek, to a relatively more demanding Manaslu Circuit. Walking side by side with mule and yak trains, trudging the steep ups and downs, entering homes and sitting for a chat with the locals in villages over basic but nutritionally sufficient lunch, we never felt left out in the land of the towering beauty of a Himalaya, Mt Manaslu, inspiringly comforting. For both our adventures, we selected the professional assistance of Index Adventure. On both the occasions, we found the services provided by the company par excellence, right from planning the trip to on the ground assistance. From our side, Nepal as a trekking destination and Index Adventure as the trekking company recommended.

    We did our Manaslu Circuit Trek successfully! The more than 100 kilometres of walk, of course, left us physically exhausted when we ended the walk crossing into the Annapurna area, but the rewards were exceptional. It would require walking the circuit for that experience. Once we decided to travel to Nepal, we were recommended Index Adventure by a friend of ours. Kesab and his team were simply great. We'd like to thank them for their caring professionalism. We've already planned the Three Pass Everest Trek for October 2020 with Index Adventure.

    I travel solo but, often, join groups. I'm an avid traveler and mountains seem to attract my attention a lot. A walk to the foothills of the amazing Mt Manaslu had for some time remained an inviting trek destination. This ended in April this year when I joined a group organized by Index Adventure. We did the Manaslu Circuit (17 Days). Amazing adventure, strenuous ups and downs right towards the beginning, narrow foot trails at places, still largely remote villages, and stunning views of the mountains. The team from Index Adventure was excellent at what they do and at the same time became friends too.
