My boyfriend and I did a trek in Nepal with Sonam and Babu .
We had an amazing week with them. The trek was the highlight of our stay in Nepal. We exchanged a lot with Sonam and Bhujung, also learned a Nepalese song which helped us to overcome the rather difficult Nepalese dish ! They were always smiling and very attentive to us! We will not forget this trek and we wish them the best!
