    - Randall Poe, Spain

    When Ram asked me what was the reason I wanted to travel, I told him that I wanted to know about different people, their culture, their food, tradition, languages and more. He asked a lot of questions regarding the time I had, budget, if I had any illnesses. He really wanted to plan the best trip for us. I was very indecisive, traveling in Nepal alone could astonish me enough but I became greedy and chose a trip to all three countries, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. During and after the trip, I was so much happy by the variety and richness of art, architecture, culture and religion people had in these countries. I can't describe all that in a single paragraph. All I can say is, once in your lifetime, you have to make this trip. And, I cannot suggest anyone else but Sublime Trails to be your trip planner.
