Sherpa Everest

I would like to say that I was thoroughly impressed with your operations in Nepal. Everything ran wonderfully smoothly. Ramesh, our leader, was particulary brilliant. He was unimposing and unobtrusive, but knew everything that was going on: from what each of ate each morning to how we all were coping with the trek. When I retun to the Himalaya I will not hesitate in travelling with World Expeditions and I will hope to travel with Ramesh again.
