I decided to visit Katmandu suddenly, unprepared. But when i met with Ramchandra a wonderful adventure began for me. We did 3 days trecking, he was kind and patient. He explained a lot of details about mountains and Nepal and the culture. That was a great expreince for me. I highly recommand the Holy Mountain Trecking company.
