Most memorable trip with an amazing guide

Hiramani took my friend and I on one of the most amazing trek up to Annapurna base camp, and this was certainly one of my best memories on my gap year! Hiramani was so friendly and made us feel so comfortable the whole time, choosing the best places to stay and never rushing us. When my friend got sick, Hiramani knew exactly how to handle the situation and this meant that we could still continue and finish the trek. I can't wait to be able to go back to Nepal and do other treks with him.
