Apr 2018 • Friends

Ero con un gruppo misto di amici, siamo stati per 16 giorni con Sadhuram Ghorsaine, ci ha accompagnati nel trekking in annapurna ed è stato come un padre. Molto attento e gentile, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla. Ci serviva addirittura al tavolo e non c’è stato modo di farlo smettere. Gli abbiamo lasciato una meritata mancia in tutti quanti.

Esperienza, serietà e molta amicizia, sta facendo un corso di lingua italiana, fra poco sarà pronto anche per gli italiani piu radicali (no english 🙂 )
Ho conosciuto anche il suo boss, persona efficente e ottimo management, l’ultima sera ci ha anche offerto una squisita cena tradizionale nepalese.

Trasporti e spostamenti impeccabili, visitate poi Katmandu, Patan e Bjaktapur, per poi passare 3 giorni nel villaggio di Sudal. Esperienza imperdibile e piu bella di tutto il resto, dove si tocca realmente il Nepal, la vita in villaggio, si vive a contatto con loro e ci si immerge nella vita rurale, fabbriche di mattoni, coltivazioni, allevamenti. Alla sera splendida festa attorno a un grande fuoco tutti assieme. Esperienza fantastica, penso proprio che ci tornerò!

Struttura particolarmente indicata per chi fa un viaggio in Nepal per la prima volta.
Enjoy and share your trip with Sadu and the Abode Travels!
