Best Tour Ever


We stayed 2 days around Khatmandu and the surrounding valleys with Purna as a guide. Apart from doing a trek through Nagarkot, he showed us everything there is to see in KhatmandĂș and surroundings. We did not have more days to do a longer trek, and we were left with the desire. We will return, and the trek we choose will be with Purna. In an impeccable English he responds to everything you ask him, both mountain, society, history, etc. A wonderful experience that we want to repeat.
