Thank you once again for the wonderful time I had in Nepal during my 6 days stay in July 2007.

Beautiful country and extremely nice and helpful people. Big thanks goes also to all member of your team and especially to Ashok who supported me during the city tour in Kathmandu.

Our wonderful flight for my party of six, was made possible by Roka and the friendly staff at Friendship Nepal Tours. Although we had to cancel our first trip due to weather delays, Roka worked to get us rebooked and flying on our only other available morning. Believe me, this service is well worth it, especially with the uncertain conditions which are typical for the Himalayan range-5 star rating !
