Testimonials 向导印象


Avec Benjamin, chaque jour apporte son lot de rencontres,  d'échanges qui font que la découverte du pays prend un tout autre sens.  Proche des népalais,  de leur culture,  de leur histoire et de leur vie, Benjamin nous fait découvrir le Népal des népalais.

With Benjamin,  every day brings it's moment of share and meeting with people which makes the discovery of the country so different and special.  Close to the inhabitants, to their culture,  history and life, Benjamin allows you to see Nepal through nepali eyes.
