Hi Machhindra, just wanted to say thank you for the experience in Nepal you were a great guide very patient and friendly. I felt perfectly safe and comfortable on a country so far away from home on a solo trip. I really liked your explanation about all the temples, the culture and lifestyle in Nepal and it made me curious to find out more. I will definitely recommend anyone I know is going to Nepal to go to you!
