Rara Lake, April 29 — May 22, 2013
3 Adults from Switzerland
Dear Stephan, and Team
First of all we like to pay you a big compliment: because of external circumstances we had to completely change our program while on the trek already — and you still made everything work out perfectly. We started our originally planned trek to Upper Dolpo and Jomson well enough, but encountered too much snow in the higher regions. Because it would have been too dangerous to cross the high passes under these conditions, our guide advised us to turn back and pursue a different option. Thus we ended up trekking form Juphal to Rara Lake — a trek which we would not have chosen in the first place but which proved to be far more impressive than we expected. The scenery was amazing and trekking through cultural land gave us very interesting insights into the rural life in Western Nepal. Above all, the trek was really of the beaten tracks — we did not encounter any other tourists for more than two weeks. Having been prepared for a different trek, our guide and crew had to improvise — but they came up with a good program and they managed to find great picnic areas and camping sites. Our crew was just wonderful: friendly, helpful, funny, hardworking and always smiling. A big compliment also to the back office in Kathmandu: because we ended our trek in Jumla instead of Jomson, they had to rebook our domestic flights and organize alternative modes of transportation for our crew. Everything worked out perfectly and we reached Kathmandu on time. Thus, dear Stephan, and team, we want to thank you all for an unforgettable trek. This is the second time we used the services of your company and we can only recommend you.
