This is a spectacular journey! I wanted to thank you for all your hard work. It was much appreciated & our trip was very successful. Crews from your website are knowledgeable. The Everest region really is like nowhere else on earth. The ultimate peace and quiet (just the gentle tinkling of yak bells along the path), astounding views, wonderful people impressed me a lot.

Overall Satisfaction:
"thanks"
Thanks to our camping crew, we had successfully completed this trek journey. Our camping crew, Mr. Liu was a very nice person and a experienced rider. He led us and kept our pace regularly. Besides, I believe Tibet has world greatest landscape, high mountains all over us, great lakes made me at peace, the mysterious Potala Palace rising high over the city of Lhasa gave me a sense of inferiority. Please gave my sincere thank to Mr. Liu. And wish you all the best.
