Our Nar Phu trek and Throng pass was an unforgettable adventure in our life. The Amazing and outstanding landscape of Nar and Phu Village, great trek, Hospitable people always give us a great smile. My guide Chhiring and porter Narayan was super great and always fun and support us. Normally our plan just treks to Nar Phu and back but we changed our mind to cross throng-la pass. Our guide talked to the company and suddenly he customizes our trip. so flexible company. Good job all. Thank you so much for planning and give us a great trek.
