To whom it may concern,
I just wanted to share my experience in Nepal with pasang sherpa and his company. my wife and myself done 2 weeks trek in Nepal in April 2018 and it was Experience of lifetime with us. Our interest was not trekking to everest base camp or busy trails of nepal, we are more interested for less crowded and more cultural remote areas of Nepal. when we send inquiry to Nepal trekking tourism, pasang offered us his Holy lake & Holy Hill trek package and this is perfect trek for us. This trek is special designed of Pasang's sherpa village where he was born and grew up in childhood. we found this trek is mixed of local tea house, homestay and 3 nights at tent in Dudhkunda lake.
If you are looking for real cultural and off the beaten trekking trail with fine cultural blessing of sherpa and their life, this trek is must to do. we had a great trek, weather is perfect for us, guide, porters are fabulous and most important they are really taking care of our trip. It is first class service by team of Pasang and his company.sometime it is hard to select company in internet but if you have plan to visit Nepal, I highly reccomend Nepal trekking tourism and Adventure and Holy hill & Holy Lake trek.
when we visit nepal again, we do another new trekking trail with team of Pasang and his company Nepal trekking tourism.
