“Writing to say thank you for all your help planning for our trip, and for the amazing trek you organized for us. In addition to the trek being exactly what we were looking for with regards to length and difficulty, it was also more than we could have imagined in terms of both natural and cultural beauty. From dancing with locals during Tihar, to harvesting millet, to the fantastic lodging and food, the entire experience was unforgettable. And despite the clouds moving in on Poon Hill, we still had numerous good sightings of the Himalayas throughout the trek.
We must also mention Surya, who was key to the entire experience being as great as it was. He was a wealth of knowledge, and constantly described what we were seeing, answered our questions, taught us some Nepali words and told interesting stories about the people and places we were getting to know. At the same time, we felt very comfortable laughing and joking with Surya, which made the experience even more enjoyable. He and Hari, our porter, seemed to always make sure we were sleeping in the best tea houses, and were extremely attentive in making sure we ate well and had hot coffee or tea (we’ve become quite fond of lemon-ginger honey tea, which we even brewed today in Washington!). All we can say is Surya was an amazing guide – and we thank you for setting us up with him!
Of course Chitwan was also fabulous. As you know, we saw a tiger, which was unbelievable, and Tiger Tops Tented Camp was spectacular.
In any event, we both wanted to say thanks again for helping make our honeymoon so unforgettable. We’re certainly glad Roko recommended contacting you. We will certainly do the same whenever we talk to anyone heading to Nepal, and we hope when we return we can meet in person. We’ve decided that next time we come will be in March – to see the rhododendron forests in full bloom!
