Annapurna circuit Trek

Voľba na doporučenie -aj trek aj cestovná kancelária v KTM. Majiteľ NARAYAN BHATTA nám zorganizoval úžasný výlet. Všetko spoľahlivo fungovalo podľa dohody. Veľmi priateľský a ústretový prístup nás milo prekvapil. Taktiež doporučený sprievodca a nosiči boli veľmi priateľskí. Snažili sa vyjsť v ústrety a zaradili všetko potrebné počas treku, Dozvedeli sme sa veľa a tamojšej kultúre,zvykoch a bežnom živote ľudí.Nikdy nepovedali ,to sa nedá.Počas treku sme si na seba aj trochu navykli a po rozlúčke nám aj chýbali. Domov sme si priniesli veľmi veľa nezabudnuteľných zážitkov a hlavne pocit, že aj v Nepále sú milí a príjemní ľudia. Ďakujeme veľmi pekne Narayan !! a prajeme veľa spokojných klientov. Túto cestovnú kanceláriu môžem len vrelo doporučiť
