Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!

Spent about a month in Nepal last year with San trekking. It was such a beautiful experience. Trekking in Pokhara in the Annapurna region and mountain flight was just out of this world. Their team took great care of us. Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!
