Amrit Treks and Expedition, is run by the Adhikari family, a local Nepali family who were all born in a small village called Astam, 20 kms from Pokhara, at the foot of the Annapurna Range in the Himalayas, Nepal. The brothers began working in the tourist industry since 1992, working as trekking porters and guides. They have been working together, operating guesthouses in the Pokhara area, since 1999, including a long stint at the French Cottage Guesthouse – a popular, respected stop for many locals and foreign budget travellers. The family’s inviting nature has resulted in a number of regulars, who are now loyal clients.
In 2009, the family decided to expand their business to the nearby and larger Hotel Marigold. Hotel Marigold also has a variety of room styles, some with lake views, enabling the brothers to offer their friendly service to a range of clientele, creating a space where a variety of people mix and share their adventure. Trek is also a part of that amazing journey.
