Kotelnikov Pavel recently visited Nepal with his wife Elena. Their tour was arranged by Explore Himalaya. They sent an email quoting their few sentences regarding Nepal once they reached their homeland Russia. They even sent few photographs they took during their trip to Nepal. The beautiful set of lines regarding Nepal as per the couple goes like this.
“It was our first trip to Nepal and we have an unforgettable experience. It is a very various, colorful and beautiful country. Very strong emotions aroused the ancient cities of the valley – Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, as well as the religious center of Pashupatinath. Royal palaces, temples, pagodas, stupas – spectacular architecture, wood carvings and stone – all unique!
The nature is very beautiful in Nepal – pine forests and parks, rice fields, hillsides, many rivers and waterfalls. Tracking in Pokhara, an expanse of Phewa Lake and mountains covered with snow, amid greenery and flowers”.
“We visited Chitwan National Park, lived in the jungle, ridden on elephants, looked on rhinos, saw crocodiles, wild boars, monkeys and deer. We were boating, hiked and drove a jeep.
We’ve seen the sunrise in Dulikhel and Nagarkot, watching that the sun paints the mountains by red. It was a fantastic sight! I want to say a lot of good things about the people living in Nepal. They are kind, open and sincere. Everywhere we were greeted with smiles and greeting “Namaste”!. We were pleased to respond in kind.
All those who accompanied us on this trip, were very attentive and professionals. Million thanks to Mr. Samundra, as well as to our guide in the cities, Mr. Vishnu and to our driver, with whom we traveled many miles, and who could do the hard way in convenient and comfortable way”.
“We would like once again to return to Nepal.”
