Wonderful Time in Nepal

My first time in Nepal and I was amazed to see the raw beauty of this country with Everest Vacation. They planned a fantastic tour for me. Even for a solo traveler, they arranged a local guide and a private vehicle which was impressive. My favorite moment was the hike to Chisapani from Sundarijal and the sunrise view from Nagarkot. The local food as suggested by Umesh was good and I will recommend you to try it as well. I will be coming again and this time I will visit Tibet and Bhutan too with Everest Vacation. I rate this company very highly and would recommend it for solo travelers like me.
