Hi Bishnu,
First of all, Sivan and I would like to say a tremendous thank you for all of the support in making our visit to Nepal a tremendous success. We had an absolutely amazing time, our guides and your staff were all first rate; and the hotels and logistics all went incredibly smoothly. We were only sorry that we could not arrange to spend some time with you and visit the Children’s Centre, I guess it will have to wait for our next visit (which we both said must happen as soon as possible!)

The day after our trek, I met a lady called Katherine who told me she’s interested in doing a similar kind of trek, so I offered to put the two of you in touch (cc’d).

Thank you very much,

Joshua Simons and Katherine Burnett

Hello Bishnu…Namaste!

It’s been a few days since I got back from the Himalayas….what a great trip!! And I want to thank you again for all the planning and the successful hike. Druba and Buddha were great companions, always attending well to my needs and a very friendly and comfortable to be with. Please thank them for me again, everyone was so nice from day one of my Kathmandu tour. I couldn’t ask for a better agency. I wish we had met but I understand how busy it can get for you and glad to hear from Dependra that everyone I met there were back doing their guiding (and trekking)…good to be working. Please say hello to them for me. I will not hesitate to recommend Nature, Trails and Travels…Thanks again!!
Take care and I wish you only the best!!
Best regards,
