Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills reviews

Read holiday reviews by Mountain Kingdoms travellers.

Trip of a lifetime

Possibly the best trip of my life so far. Everything was very well organised, Nepal is a staggeringly beautiful country and the people are wonderful. Our trek guide Bhudda was the perfect guide and it was a fantastic holiday. Really exceeded my expectations and I will absolutely book with Mountain Kingdoms again.

A well led trek

The trek was really well led with the leader available to us from 6am to bed-time. Pace was excellent for our group. Lodge staff were also very helpful.

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills - Private Departure

A fabulous holiday - about 4-5 hours of walking each day (each day is different) with beautiful scenery and walking through remote villages. Every afternoon there is some down time, so a good time to relax and detox! Everyone is very welcoming and service is amazing.

An amazing trip and the scenery was WOW!

WOW! WOW! WOW! Had an absolutely fabulous time trekking the Annapurna Foothills... everything was so well organised and our guides and porters all did a fabulous job. The scenery was outstanding and as a keen photographer I had a field day! Thank you Mountain Kingdoms, I will be back!

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills

Everything ran like clockwork and our group of 8 bonded together really well, The food at the lodges was excellent and we particularly enjoyed 'happy hour!' and the fires.

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills

Excellent staff, accommodation and food. We will definitely be using Mountain Kingdoms again.

Gentle trekking and luxury lodges Annapurna

A marvellous trek, the accommodation and food are excellent and we had a truly wonderful holiday. I would advise people to prepare themselves for a day of climbing stone steps on the route to Gandruk and then treat yourself to a foot massage (offered at the lodge) once you get there!

Adventure of a lifetime

No praise can be too high for the wonderful guides and porters we had on our trek and also the superb staff at the lodges on the Ghandruk Loop. We would question if this was 'gentle' trekking however as we all found it far from gentle but lived to tell the tale! On the first full day for example we climbed up and down 4,500 steep stone steps so perhaps the word gentle is not an accurate description at all. Overall though we are so glad we went and the views of the Himalyas take your breath away.

The trek itself was truly spectacular and I loved every step

Felt totally looked after from the moment we stepped off the plane til the moment we were dropped off back at the airport. Everyone we came into contact with really cared about our comfort and safety. The quality of the lodges ,staff ,food, comfort was beyond my expectations. To cap it all the first night and last two nights at the Dwarika's hotel were perfect. The whole experience was joyful , beautiful and special.

The most fantastic holiday in Nepal

The organisation, accommodation, food, guide, porters, in fact absolutely everything was spot on and contributed to making the whole experience magical. The awe-inspiring mountain vistas, lush vegetation, perfect weather and the friendliest people ever just made this whole experience absolutely magical.

Fantastic trek in the Annapurna foothills

Wow what a holiday we loved every second of it. We have to admit that there were more steps than we thought but our family party of four all mid sixties plus managed it well. Everything exceeded our expectation and all ran smoothly like a well oiled machine. Hotels, lodges and staff were fantastic. A special mention must go to the porters who not only carried the luggage of two people but were so attentive in keeping us safe and helping us all when the path became a little more challenging. We cannot recommend the holiday enough and it has given us the appetite to choose another adventure now with Mountain Kingdoms.

Gentle trekking with luxury lodges

A wonderful experience showing many facets of life in Nepal

This was the best trek ever!

I loved everything about it: the lodges, the staff, the route, the scenery, the views... The Mountain Kingdoms organisation was excellent and gave us the best of both worlds with a superb trek and city/cultural visits with delightful hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Nepal and Bhutan - Tailor made holiday

Trekking in Nepal for a week followed by 10 days in Bhutan was the holiday of a lifetime made extra special by the amazing guides and support staff. Thank you!! .

Private Departure - Annapura Trek and to Poon Hill

(Review from adapted Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges itinerary) Excellent trekking. A lot of steps up and down, so your legs get very fit! Amazing scenery, some basic tea houses but lovely people. Stayed in luxury lodges too, which were very comfortable and excellent food. Sunrise at Poon Hill is a must - spectacular views of mountain range. Over all 100% enjoyed the challenge and I am thinking about the next one!!

Enjoyable holiday to Nepal

It was our first trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The arrangements were all good and we were well looked after. The mix of the holiday was excellent: cultural, trekking and wildlife. We loved the Everest flight add-on. It was good being part of a small group. Also good to be able to bolt on an extension (Chitwan). Two nights at Dwarika's at the end was inspired as well (an experience in itself).

Superb adventure to Nepal

Superb holiday/adventure. Great connections between activities i.e.: no long road trips.

Annapurna trek

Trip ran smoothly, trek accommodation was excellent.

Great trek and wonderful extension to India

I valued the certainty that most things would click into place. Everything did and for a solo traveller that was a comfort, thank you. My Indian extension was wonderful! The company which you had engaged to put this in place did a first class job. Every representative found me and my guide for the Taj Mahal Amit Udaphyay was a great companion.

Annapurna Foothills trek

What we enjoyed about travelling with Mountain Kingdoms was the quality of organisation/logistics, good-quality lodges, group experience, quality of trek leaders & porters, and happy hour was excellent!
