My wife, Jensen, and I loved our trek through the Annapurna Circuit with Chandra. Jensen and her mom had trekked with Chandra in 2011 and we were lucky to have opportunity to trek with him in 2017. I would highly recommend this trek with Chandra as your guide!

We did the Annapurna around trek, guided by Bir and I must say, it was one of the most impressive things I ever do. Excellent planning and a great team to help us on all we need, so we must dedicate all our time to watch the wonderful landscapes and enjoy all the trip. Very satisfied. Thanks to all Belmont Adventure team!
