We spent a delightful day hiking to Champadevi with our excellent guide, Birendra. We hiked to the shrine with hundreds of prayer flags hanging in the trees above us along the trail. Birendra speaks fluent English and is a wealth of knowledge on many subjects. The scenery was gorgeous as we gazed down the valley below us. After a delicious lunch, we visited several Tibetan monasteries with awe-inspiring shrine rooms. The day ended with a cup of java at a local coffee shop. Throughout the day Birendra was attentive, engaging, and incredibly kind. I highly recommend scheduling tours with this company. We would definitely sign up for a future adventure with them.

kindness, Respectful, good knowledge sense of humor and very very professional.
