Dear Suresh,Ram was asking me for feedback about how I enjoyed my trip to Nepal and about the guides. I told him I would send you an email of my impressions. First let me say that I enjoyed the trip very much. Some things were more outstanding than others. Of the places I visited the favorites were Bhaktapur and Pokhara. I could have spent a whole day in Bhaktapur, and if I come again I will do so. Both the lake of Pokhara, and the hike that I took from Naudanda back to Pokhara were lovely.
Regarding the guides. The first guide Krish (do not know how he spells it) was very knowledgeable about the history and the religion, but liked the sound of his own voice too much and did not listen to anyone. I would start to comment on something and after a sentence he would begin talking again. By the second day I was a bit annoyed. It would be a favor to him to suggest that he pay attention more to his customers. The driver, Rajan, was excellent, and once we were without Kaisi I found that he knew English well enough for some conversation.
The guide in Pokhara, Krishna, was outstanding. He is the first guide I have met who knew the nature – birds, plants. As I said I enjoyed the hike very much.
Regarding the hotels, Country Villa in Nagarkot was fine. The food was good and the view outstanding. The hotel in Pokhara was also nice, with a large room and view of the lake from a porch. I would have preferred a hotel with a roof from which you could see the mountains. To see them in the morning (the only time they were not covered by clouds) I had to walk into town and look from the street.
I hope that this is helpful.
