James' review for another G Adventures tour
“Fantastic / beyond imaginings. I thought the planet was explainable in 3 dimensions but Nepal and this trip will open your brain to a multitude of dimensions. The trip leader, Kasang Sherpa, was phenomenal, knowledgeable and thoroughly professional. A true ambassador for Nepal and all that this unearthly region represents.”
