View Full Version : Annapurna Circuit - April 2006

12th January 2006, 12:13 AM
Hi, I'm looking for trekking companions for the Annapurna Circuit. I hope to trek the Circuit over a 21 day period starting in mid-April. I've been looking at trekking with Nepal Trailblazers or hiring a recommended guide and was hoping to share the costs by travelling with someone or as part of a group. I'm a 32 year old Scotsman who has bagged his share of Munros and is looking for something a little more adventurous :-)

Why did we select the name 'Encounters Nepal'?

An Encounter is an unexpected meeting with someone or something and we want you to Encounter
** Real adventures - Mt. Everest - On Top of The World
** Nepal's most sacred mountain Machhapuchhre 'The Fishtail'
** Popular and Wild Trekking Tours
** Raging River Rafting
** Elephant Safaris to see the One-horned Rhino and The Royal Bengal Tiger
in Nepal's flat wetlands (Terai)
** UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites (7 alone in the Kathmandu Valley!)
** Sacred Temples and Monasteries: Pashupatinath | Swoyambhunath | Boudhanath
Lord Buddha's birthplace-Lumbini
** Kathmandu's Durbar Square (home of the living Kumari Goddess)
and Patan and Bhaktapur's Durbar Squares
** The Gateway to Tibet and Bhutan

All these marvels can be Encountered in 'Nepal'. Our highly experienced and skilled team of professionals encourage Eco-Practice every step of the way.

Encounters Nepal comprises a team of experienced professionals who have in the past 8 years worked for a range of trekking agencies. We have launched a new agency so that we can deliver our own exceptional standard of service; something we believe has become diluted in the explosion of trekking agencies available in Kathmandu alone.

We pride ourselves in our attention to detail. Nepal is a magical place and we want to ensure that you experience is the best it can be. This means delivering the type of trip you want. Whether you plan to take your time exploring or if you have limited time and a demanding trek to conquer, you can rest assured that we are genuinely friendly, reliable and always professional. Many of our customers return to Nepal. We consider their repeat booking with us a testament to our exceptional service.

How else do we differ from the competition? Unlike many other agencies we insure our guides, porters and Sherpas and pay them well. We also take environmental responsibilities seriously. We consider ourselves to be committed to the principles of eco-tourism and have started a number of initiatives to demonstrate this commitment.

Firstly we provide you with drinking water on all treks ensuring that your impact on the environment is minimized. An increase in used mineral water bottles found along some routes has become an issue in some areas! Secondly, we allocate at least 5% of our profits to local charities. This means that you are contributing directly to the development of communities who might otherwise not have benefited from your visit.

We won't stop there. We're continually looking to introduce new ways of working to improve the quality of life for as many Nepali people as possible. We encourage other trekking agencies to adopt some of our principles and we lobby all 3 Tourism Associations to ensure that our precious resources are protected for visitors to appreciate well into the future.
