We hiked with Nirajan and honestly it was an amazing trip of my lifetime. We were a family with 9 years children, we were bit worried about our kids that weather they gone do it or not. But am thankful for nirajan that he didn’t even feel kids to feel tired after all walking 6 hrs. We booked only this trip but after reaching in dhampus he suggest us to visit Pothana. We were trying to ignore pothana but he managed kids to walk all the way up to viewpoint of Pothana and it was really amazing place. Personally am not a good hiker not even trek before in my life but these guys made me to walk all the way and again am thankful for it. We did Dhampus – Pothana- and Australian base camp hiking in one day. Day was superb, clear sky, magnificent mountains and good guiding trip. Have no more words to thank you guys. will come back again for Mustang trekking and surely with you man, you are the best caring person ever.
