    Annapurna Base Camp (Annapurna Sanctuary Trekking) - 15 days

    After leading several Himalayan expeditions myself, including the first American ascent of Annapurna I, I can attest to Chandra’s outstanding qualities as leader and organizer. He is an especially good guide for student groups. I first met Chandra when my daughter attended 8th grade at the Lincoln School in Kathmandu, Nepal, and he was the guide selected by the expat community to lead the 8th  grade students on a week-long “Explore Nepal” trek.  The students and parents really appreciated Chandran’s thoughtful planning and leadership.
    In the last twenty years, I've enjoyed a dozen diverse adventures in Nepal with Chandra.  He always provides great food, gear, and guides as well as personalized itineraries and attention for individual travelers and small and large groups. His company is a good choice for any individual, school, group or family that wants to enjoy their own trek with a personal itinerary at a relatively low cost.
    If you might like a Nepal adventure customized to your interests, abilities, and schedule,  you can learn more at at  Himalayan Icefall Trekking or contact Chandra at himtrekzone@gmail.com.
