    Extraordinary Trek in Nepal

    Wow! What a beautiful experience I had on the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, organized by Dipak, and guided by the incredible human, Nirmal. I arrived in Kathmandu without a plan and wrote to Dipak in the middle of the night, asking if he might be able to help me organize a trek in the next couple of days. He responded almost immediately and put together a trek that I will never forget: his precision, warmth, and attention to detail are impeccable.

    As a guide, I do not think you could really ever ask for a kinder, more patient, and gentle guide than Nirmal. He taught me a lot about the kind of person I strive to be. Watching the way Nirmal interacted with everyone we encountered on the trek inspired me on so many levels, not only because he seemed to have friends in every corner, but even those individuals he hadn't met, he treated with reverence and respect, from the myriad porters, to the juice vendors, to the elderly villagers attending to their daily work.

    Nepal's landscape is breathtaking and Nirmal knows every inch of the trails: the forests we walked through were beyond pristine, painted pink above and below as the flower petals of the rhododendrons create an otherworldly atmosphere with endless waterfalls, buffalo, sheep, and mossy neon trees. We wandered through villages high in the mountains where I often felt as though I was the only foreigner, and witness to a completely different way of life. Because I was with Nirmal, I was welcomed in a way I'm sure I wouldn't have been on my own.

    The Nepalese people's spirituality seems to be encapsulated in their kindness, which emanates from almost all the individuals I encountered. Nirmal embodied this as he carried my horribly shaped bag without a single complaint, and gave me permission to go "slowly slowly," and Dipak, each time he checked in with me, or offered to help me with each and every detail.

    I know I will return to Nepal and I cannot recommend enough that if you are thinking of coming to Nepal, DO IT. You will never regret it, and if/when you do, Dipak and Nirmal will do everything in their power to ensure that you have an unforgettable experience. I give them my highest recommendation.
