"a once in a lifetime experience! "
The guides (Tasi and Mani) and yoga instructor (Anil) that accompanied us were very kind and friendly. They always made sure that we were safe, well, comfortable and happy and they took us to various locations outside of the itinerary to allow us to see the full splendour which Nepal had to offer.

"The most beautiful trek in the world! "
The yoga trek takes place at the annapurna circuit, which is known as the most beautiful trek in the world, and I agree. Every hour you have a different breathtaking view.
That nature in combination with waking up with yoga and doing afternoon yoga or meditation with a very skilled instructor results in a total reset of mind, body and soul.
Tashi was an amazing guide, very sweet and professional. 3 times a day you could choose food from a different big menu, which includes Nepalese and western food like pizza. Masala tea and dal bhat are the best!
The accommodation is pretty basic. Sometimes you have an attached bathroom, but mostly you share. Sometimes you could only charge batteries at the dining hall.
- bring at least 20.000 Nepalese roepies (200 dollar) along the trek. Food includes breakfast lunch, diner and tea, so for soft drinks and snacks you need money. We had the chance to do the thorong la pass by horse which costs around 120 dollars. You also might want to buy souvenirs or clothes.
- I exercised 2 months before the trek and that is what you need minimum. I would advise running 2 times a week and bootcamp once a week. If you have painful knees and ancles, don't do it. There were 5 hard days, the rest is pretty easy.
- the poorter carries your sleeping bag, yoga math and a bit of extra stuff that doesn't fit your backpack. I brought with me 10 kg. Layers is the answer to cold weather, but we only had 2 cold days, 0 degrees.

Once again an awesome trip. The Med Trek Team are well organised, friendly and really connect with the volunteers. The porters and chief on the trek did a wonderful job and the food had variety and tasted great. The interaction with the local village people will stay with me for life.

TREKT was my first medical trek and I loved it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to start trekking or enjoy helping others. Going on this trek has opened my eyes to endless possibilities. I have no doubt your experiences will be the same.

It is a nice place where you can travel, trek, as well as help the people. I love it.

This was the best overseas vacation I ever had, and I loved it. We trekked to Oklandunga, going toward Everest region to set up health care camps with medical trek Nepal. The trek was truly way out from civilization (in most places), and we were immersed in "Sherpa Culture". What was amazing about this, as opposed to Everest trek (which I had done previous year), was that we became part of these villages, rather than just guests passing through. I could not understand what the village people were saying, but we felt warmly welcome. The camp days were long and busy with sometimes 300 villagers waiting to be seen by our volunteer team (along with amazing Nepalese medical staff), but the porters played with all the kids, and regularly bought us tea, and snacks. The cook was amazing. How he made such delicious food over the camp fire, I have no idea. I could write a book about how much I loved this remote hiking volunteer experience, but I will end this here and say I am definitely going back when I can (maybe teaching trek with Trekt Himalaya) and huge thanks to Ang Choti and Sabin and Sandra and the team.
