To all who read this and are about to start on a trek with Holiday Mountain Treks – I am toooo jealous!! I wish my trek was starting all over again. I spent 4 wonderful days in an amazing country –I once heard Nepal is the closest country to Heaven –it’s true!! We had such an amazing experience and despite the sore legs, our sprit never failed! Our guide kept us well entertained and in lively sprits!! The places we visited, the scenery we saw and the friendliness of the people we met along our way will never be forgotten. Never have I been so impressed by country by country, it’s people and I am already planning my next visit–hopefully soon. Again heartfelt thanks to the attention help and encouragement we received. Note: Only one problem I must mentioned the trek was too.......Short!! Next time 3 weeks Dhanyabad!! Nicola Wilson
