                                          thankful to Nepal Trekking Planner

                                          So thankful to Nepal Trekking Planner for all their help with travel arrangements during my trip in Nepal. I am especially thankful for one of their amazing guides, Gyeljen Sherpa who me and my boyfriend met on our walk to Everest base camp. He quickly became a friend whose kindness and personality we will never forget. Thank you Gyeljen for loaning us money when we were out of cash and thank you making us smile and laugh every time we ran into you on the trail! Highly recommend him for anyone that need an excellent trekking guide. Namaste ♥️
