Magical experience in TIBET

We Had Magical experience in TIBET. Tandi & Pasang Made it all possible. We were met at Kathmandu Airport and guided through the chaos that city cause. We Saw TIBET the way it was meant to be seen driving over the high mountains passes and through Rural villages visiting historic Monasteries and Stupas along the Way. When we returned to Kathmandu, Tandi was at Airport to greet us and gave us a personal tour of Kathmandu Valley. Their all team are nice people, Knowledgeable and willing to make Anything Happen. We Highly recommend Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions to all who wants to travel in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and Other Himalayan Parts. We will use them again very soon.
