My partner and I did Mardi Himal Base Camp followed by Annapurna Base Camp over 10 days in May, and absolutely loved it. We had stayed at the hostel linked with Budget Trekking (Dorm Nepal), and arranged our trek whilst there.
We decided on Annapurna Base Camp, and were advised to go via Mardi Himal rather than Poon Hill - as we were told you get better views and less people. And we were so happy we went with their idea as they were so right. We got brilliant views at every stage, and also managed to avoid the rain every day. We would hugely recommend going on this trek if you've got limited time.
We decided on a package so everything was included - transport to Pokhara, accommodation in Pokhara, all tea houses on the trek, all meals on the trek, our permits, and everything for our guide as well. We checked around in Thamel for prices before we booked, and Budget Trekking were cheaper than all but one (also much cheaper than other websites booking at home) - but we went with them due to the extra security we felt from knowing the guys from the hostel. We can't fault anything about the trek. The guys in the office were brilliant and everything was arranged easily (included with the contract we signed was also an itinerary for the trek). Raj (our guide) was really knowledgable about the trek, pointing stuff out all the time and we felt safe the whole time, and if we come back to Nepal for another trek we will definitely try and go with Raj again.
