Hi Binaya & santos

Thanks so much , we had a great time . In spite of " Monsoon Season" , we had the experience of a lifetime. The scenery was beautiful and the tea houses were fine. we did the Poon-Hill - Ghandruk 4 days circuit trek. For us beginners, it was just right .The highlight was Ghandruk when the mountian finally came into full view over the mountain village. Santos was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. we felt very sage in his hands .
