Expériences à Nagarkot et Poonhill top !

Nous sommes partis à deux reprises avec Treklanders Adventures. La première fois pour un trek de 4 jours vers Poonhill, et la deuxième fois une demie-journée à Nagarkot. Ces deux expériences étaient superbes. Le guide et les sherpas sont top. L'organisation et la réactivité des équipes étaient parfaite. Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir de très belles vues sur la chaîne de l'Hymalaya. Les logements et les restaurants prévus étaient tout à fait adaptés à nos besoins. Le guide, les sherpas et les chauffeurs de Jeep ont bien assuré notre sécurité tout au long des périples. Je recommande grandement de partir à l'aventure avec Treklanders Adventures. Merci pour ces expériences.
