Frank Mayes, along with his family, explored the scenic and cultural hotspots of Kathmandu and Pokhara recently. The Mayes family (from USA )had actually planned to visit Everest Base Camp in Tibet but had to scrap their plans due to permit issues. As an alternative tour, the Mayes family enjoyed a cultural and scenic extravaganza to Nepal’s tourist hotspots Kathmandu and Pokhara. Before their departure, EH met up with Frank Mayes . Here’s his feedback:
EH: How was your tour?
Frank Mayes: Overall we had a very good and enjoyable time. We liked the people we met and the guide.
EH: How was the service of our staffs and guide in Kathmandu and Pokhara?
FM: The service of the guides was very good and we enjoyed their company. We felt very safe and secure with the company.
EH: Any special moment you would like to share?
FM: I personally enjoyed the music and dinner that we had. All of us enjoyed our visit to the Monkey Temple (Swoyambhunath). Visiting there is lot of fun and we learnt a lot about the origin of the Kathmandu Valley from that trip. The Hindu temple of Pashupatinath was also quite interesting.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
