Nepal is safe....and beautiful!!

Traveled to Nepal for 10 days in December. We did 7days of trekking to Helambu, Chisopani and Nagarkot and the rest in Kathmandu and Thamel area. We had an amazing time with the friendliest and warmest of guides. Huge thanks to Raj for all his hard work accommodating every request we had...... and to BK our trekking guide for keeping us on the right track!!!.......and to Madhav, our cultural guide who was very insightful and a great company. All of them made our trip unforgettable and went above and beyond for us in every way possible. We can't wait to go back to beautiful Nepal and couldn't recommend them enough to anyone considering visiting Nepal for what ever the reason.
