Hi Justwravel team, I just returned from Rupin Paas trek and I had to tell you how absolutely wonderful it was! First, our guide was outstanding! He was professional, knowledgeable, helpful, and encouraging . Next, the route this trip takes may be long and difficult at times, but it has filled with majestic beauty and this beauty has changes at every turn. The quality of the food was awesome. The accommodation arrangement was also very good . I had specially like to appreciate your second and third day's wooden stay. I will recommend your company to everyone I know and I look forward to taking another trip with you all in the future." --Sushil
