I along with my friends drove to a place called Tatopani. We spent some quality time there enjoying the hot spring. The next day, we start our hiking towards Muktinath. During hiking, we encountered some spectacular views of the Mt. Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range. My guide 'Rab' was a very kind and very enthusiastic person whom I ever met. During our hiking, he guided us thoroughly and professionally. He seemed to have sound knowledge of his professional trekking. So, if you are planning to visit Nepal, we recommend Glacier Nepal Treks for your adventure in Nepal.
