Trip Reviews

Hi Pasang,
Just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work in arranging my excellent trekking trip in the Annapurna Region. I had an amazing time and lots of great pictures. I'll send you a link to them when they are uploaded.Fuchhetar did a great job and trekked as if he had nothing on his back

Thank you also to your brother! He was a HUGE help to me my last couple days when I needed to get my visa for Delhi India. He drived me back and fourth (via motorcycle) to the travel agent and Indian Embassy were so very helpful!!! Please let him know how much I appreciated his help that day.
