"Funtastic visit for Poon Hill"

Had the pleasure of meeting Ram on my backpacking trip to Southeast Asia. We ordered the trip for Poon-Hill in advance, and was excited to meet our guide. He instantly welcomed us, and was very extrovert. He told us a lot about the nepalese culture, and recommended us, on how to get the most out of our trip. I can strongly recommend Ram and his fellow co-workers, because i´m sure, you´ll get a great trip, aswell as i got.
