"My wife and I just completed the Nepalese traditional wedding and the Ghorepani, Poon Hill trek with Hari as our excellent, knowledgeable and personable guide, Narram as the quiet, trustworthy porter and Shital as the Himalaya Heart coordinator. We would like to thank the staff and our extended family at Balthali Village and Ram Humagain at the Balthali Village Resort for their excellent hospitality. There are so many others to thank, including the many who assisted and attended the wedding. The traditional Nepalese music brought tears to our eyes and we will dearly miss Ba, Ama, and the Hindu Priest. All of it was beautiful and very authentic. We could not have imagined a more stunning and memorable event anywhere else in the world. We miss all of the friends we have made and our extended family, especially Hari, who we recommend to anyone considering trekking in Nepal. "
