We had planned for this trip since 3 years ago before Covid-19 and the trip had been postponed until this May 2023. Finally we had made it. Even we've already paid for the deposit, Anil still kept following up from time to time throughout these 3 years and quite flexible for all activities we needed. Helicopter trip, Paragliding and so on. However, after other groups have problems with altitude and Covid-19, he's on the phones all the time and lost some focus with us. But it's understandable. He's trying his best effort for every group. Two porters who came with us're nice and had great service mind as well. Also the city tour guide, Mr. Dhruba Dahal, was very nice and took good care of us until the last minute.
