First of all, we would like to give huge thanks to Nepal Guide Treks for making our holiday memorable. We have had chosen Nepal guide treks and expedition to have our south Asia tour trips. Firstly, we visited Nepal with day sightseeing. NGT precede our all required visa procedure and flight to Paro. Overall trip was great.
