In late 2015 my partner and I rocked out of the Kathmandu airport with no concrete plans as to where we wanted to go trekking in Nepal. We met Chin Thapa at our hotel in the afternoon and immediately took to his beaming smile and friendly manner. We told him we were interested trekking around Annapurna for ~5-6 days and by 8pm he already had an unbeatable quote for the entire trip including travel, meals and accommodation.
For the 6 days we trekked around Annapurna we couldn’t believe the quality of the places we stayed (for the price) and the outstanding hospitality we received. Chin our guide was always 100% accommodating of our interests and not to mention one of the most top notch blokes we have ever met. An absolute ‘legend of the game’ as they say.
I can’t wait to return to Nepal and I know the first place I will be going as soon as I get off the plane.
