The trip was simply fantastic. Everyone should have seen the beautiful mountains of the Himalayas. Simply majestic. The organization by Footprint Adventures was terrific. All wishes were taken care of and the guides/porters and organizers are mega friendly, flexible and accommodating. Communication via WhatsApp was mega easy and fast.
