Who hasn’t dreamed of the Himalayan ranges, mountains higher than the clouds, Tibet or Nepal…?
This dream, two friends realized it in the spring of 2011 by traveling for 2 weeks in the Langtang Region in Nepal then staying a week in Kathmandu and its region.
Not wanting to go with a tour operator, in order to keep the possibility of coming and going as we wish, we retained a guide and two porters in Kathmandu. Recommended by other travellers, we chose to be accompanied by Sonam as a guide and his brother with his cousin as porters.
Thanks to his professional qualities as an experienced guide but above all thanks to his human qualities, Sonam met all our expectations. With him we traveled a territory still relatively unfrequented by trekkers.
He opened the doors to a population of warm generosity.
In addition to the physical effort, the discovery of an exceptional environment, we were lucky enough to be welcomed at each bivouac by families around a wood fire.
Sonam took on the role of interpreter during long evenings of exchanges with the inhabitants about our respective cultures.
His brother and his cousin proved to be excellent traveling companions to whom we taught to play cards in the evening at the evening… From there, long parts of laughter…!!!
Traveling friends, if for you the trip is synonymous with exchanges, meetings, discoveries of places still little frequented then do not hesitate, call on the services of Sonam.
You will find with him the safety of travel, the discovery of exceptional places and the pleasure of evenings where Sonam will sing to the sounds of his Tibetan guitar.
A big thank you to all three of them for this dream stay.
