    This was a truly amazing travel experience. The landscape hidden behind towering Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri is a wonder and so are the people and their ways. I loved the grand canyons, ancient caves, and all those centuries-old monasteries. The king and Teji festival at Lho also captured my imagination. I was a part of a group in a tour organized by Index Adventure, well-organized, I must say. I was impressed with their attitude and the services and would certainly recommend them.

    I love traveling and, to me, traveling means many things – going places, meeting people, trying out things (local food for example). I am also the kind who prefers the assistance of a tour operator so that I can focus on doing things rather than thinking about what to do. My trip to Nepal was no different. This, in fact, was my third visit. For all these three occasions, I chose Index Adventure as my Nepal travel partner. They're good! This time, it was Upper Mustang, the forbidden kingdom. The barren deserts high up had many stories to share and I had a great time. But, I also know that this would not have been the same if not for Index Adventure. Thanks to everyone, especially, to Kesab and Sudip for that excellent itinerary and professional execution.
