Many thanks to uniquepath and the supporting team at Uniquepath trekking. From those who “summitted” Everest Base Camp, trekked the Ghorepani/Ghandruk rhododendrum forests, explored Kathmandu & Pokhara and played with the elephants at Chitwan, we all say dhanyabad !! The mountains were shy and stayed hidden in the mist but the spring flowers bloomed in the hills. Best wishes to you all and to the people of Nepal – “May all the hopes and dreams you have for the future of your country, come true and blossom like the mountain flowers.” We will return.
