      An awesome Annapurna Trek with Lake Tilicho hike

      I had a wonderful trip to nepal, doing Annapurna circuit, Lake Tilcho trek and Gorepani-Poonhill trek in Late October 2022. The weather was perfect for hiking with clear blue skies. All the itinerary was perfectly executed by Dream Heaven Adventure. The views were amazing throughout the trek and reached Highest point Thorrong-La Pass at 5416m, Lake Tilicho nearly 5000m and Poonhill at 3210m.
      Suman organised the entire itinerary and provided all the logistics, eg booking hotels, hiring og private taxi and private Jeep, booking internal fligjhts, and booking private pokhara city sightseeing tour, with paragliding experience.
      Suman is proffessional in his work, replied my messages promptly and and very helpful in sorting out issues.This made my entire Trekking experince a success. He also provided best trekking guide Mr Huparaj, who was very experienced and knowledgeable and i had a good time trekking with him, making sure all my requirements were met.
      Dream Heaven Adventure can offer variety of trekking options, they have knowledge, contacts and logistics in place to make sure a trip to Nepal will be a wonderful one. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to do trekking or holidaying in Nepa. Go for it. !!!
