Happy with Himalayan Smile team , Japan

We all are so happy with Himalayan Smile team and thanka lot for your management and professionalism. Please keep on it forever. I am fond of the mountains. I usually do traveling to different mountain zones and capture beautiful views to my cameras. This time I decided to go Annapurna Base Camp, Lamjung Himal, and Milke Danda, near to Kanchenjunga region. First of all, as our plan, we trekked to Annapurna Base camp. Then one day stay in Pokhara. We trekked to Lamjung Himal. It was a full camping trekking. As compared to ABC it was a quiet zone. We took photos of excellent views of Mt. Manaslu, Lamjung and Himalchuli. Then we again backed in Kathmandu and set off for Biratnagar for Milke danda. This trekking was really paradise for nature lovers. Although the weather was not favorable to us we enjoyed there a lot. At the conclusion to say our whole trip was a successful one. The credit for this success we would give Himalayan Smile Company. If they did not provide us such friendly guides, cook and laborious we could not have got such experience. We do not have any comment on their services. Everything was outstanding. Kind regards and many thanks!
