Everest trek review
I wanted to thank you and your team for helping to orchestrate a very memorable trip to Nepal. You recommended great lodges along the Everest trail and succeeded in arranging a trekking guide in Lukla despite the short notice of my visit. You and your team also provided very insightful tours of Kathmandu Valley, delving into cultural and historical significance of locations that made the stay much more meaningful. .... You provide a very hands on approach that sets you apart from competition.
