I had an opportunity to visit Nepal. I had less than a week for it. I reached out to several trekking companies in Nepal and only Escape Nepal responded to my inquiries. Arjun was very fast to respond to any questions I had and proposed a trek that would fit my schedule.
They escorted me everywhere in Nepal so I didn't have to care about finding the places in Kathmandu myself.
The trek was very nice mix of walking and resting at the teahouses. On the first day we spent night at Chisapani where we had very good view at Himalayan range. The mountains were so beautiful. The trek itself brought us through many rural areas where we could see local people working and living their simple lifes. It gives so much appreciation about the life back at home.
Bishnu was my guide for the trek. He is very good and nice person. He standed out from the rest of the guides that I would meet during the trek. Bishnu would really care about my well being on the trek. I was happy to have him as my guide.
I also wanted to thank Raj and Shankur for my day trip in Kathmandu. My day trip was during Shivaratri which is a big Hindu celebration. We visited Pashupatinath temple which was very crowded that day. Raj was taking great care to safeguard me and ensure that I don't get lost there.
Thanks everyone for the nice visit in Nepal!
P.S. In couple of years I have to start planning a longer trip so that I can do some more trekking in higher mountains.
