thanks dawa from bristol England

Hi Dawa
It’s difficult to put into words just how great the round trek was. It exceeded my expectations in all respects. It was the most spectacular, varied and hardest trek I’ve ever been on. From climbing up through the forest and dodging leeches , to beautiful sunrises lighting up the mountains which got closer with everyday of the trek. The path from Dhor from a particular favourite of mine as we walked the Singalila ridge dropping into Nepal. Feezing nights led to crystal clear mornings. Views of Everest and Kanchenjunga could only lift your heart. It’s why I went and the trek delivered. A lot of days it was difficult to know which way to look the views were that good.
 
Your team of guides, cooks, porters and Yak men were great. Not sure I’ll ever eat so well on a trek. The teams love of their work and the country was infectious. Thank you for putting such a good team together.Can you give a huge thank you to Dawa again from me. . It took a leap of faith to chose Dawa from a thread on a forum, one that I’m so glad we did.

If anymore trails open up in Sikkim I would be very tempted to return. So keep me posted.
 
 
Regards
Steve
 
PS Only two regrets. One was losing my much loved and lived in hat at the end of the trek. The other was not buying one of the rugs from the Tibetan centre in Darjeeling.
