Looking back on the last month…..an amazing trek to Gosainkunda, a Buddhist wedding, Chitwan trip, Paragliding in Pokhara, Bungee jumping, Mountain biking, and also much more…..None of which would have been possible without the constant assistance of Nava and his team.

Thank you all so much. Much appreciation and good fortune to go.
