I would like to thank You for preparing our himalayan aventure for us in october 2009. All was great organizated. Begining with picking up from the airport, taking us to hotel, giving us useful tips, managing all the necessary permits. Mountain Sherpa which was waiting for us in Chukung was our good guide. He helped us to cross Amphu Laptse saddle so the crossing was no more dangerous for us. He showed us the right way to Mera peak so the ascend was for us more comfortable. So Chandra thank You, that we could enjoy our adventure with no worries. And we hope that it was not our last visit in Nepal.
