The itinerary had arranged by Mr. Dipak was great and suitable to our needs . Its was also reasonable to our quotation. Appointed guides , Mr.Siva on Kathmandu City Tour and Mr . Ganesh on Ghandruk Loop Trekking were great . Their knowledge were meaningful to us. Along 3 day in Ghanruk Loop, we experienced beautiful view of Annapurna in every morning. The weather was raining in evening. And thank God in the morning was bright morning shine.
