    Dear Fabian,

    I wanted to drop you a line, now we’re back home, to thank you for organising such a wonderful trek for my family. Nandoo was a great guide, we were well fed and cared for throughout our adventure. We had the time of our lives.

    I’ve attached a few photos I promised Nandoo I would send over. I hope you are all well and enjoying a busy season in the mountains!

    Thanks and warm wishes.

    Dear Fabian,

    Namaste !
    All of us have returned home safely. Now we are back to our normal busy working life.
    Fabian, we are very thankful to you. Our great pleasure to meet wonderful and kind persons like you, and also the supportive trekking crew(Nandu, kitchen staff) etc, and many others we met while you brought us along the way.
    All of us have expressed that it was a very enjoyable and pleasant stay in Sikkim. Though the weather was a bit rough on us at the beginning of the trek, but it actually kind of created another different fascinating trail on our way down. To me, this was my firt-time interesting experience with the level of coldness camping and snow-trekking in the wilderness. I had gained new grounds and learnt so much more in this trip. Nandu was super, he was always sure and steady about everything that left us felt we were with good hands. He practices alot of good positive values and passionate and delicated in his undertakings. Hardworking Ruben also had become most of our favourite, he was always there ready to give us support. Caren(your cute cousin) was a nice and fun person, a delicated photography man , but he carried poor attributes of an anchor man. Please don’t ever put him to be the last one in any trails. Karma was good and responsible, either in the front or as an anchor man, but he needs more encouragement for being more daring with opportunities to practice and improve his communication skills.
    We had lots of wonderful and unforgetable time, and we are very grateful to have you there to take so good care of us. These memories of us being together and the experience we had gone through will stay with us forever.
    After we have arranged and compiled our photos, I’ll arrange to send you some of our wonderful moments.
    We will miss you and the rest of the people(including your cute little doggie). We have friends who will be coming to Sikkim someday very soon, while till then, please take good care of yourself, and may you be blessed with all things good in life – good health, peace, joy and success.

    Thank you so much for everything!
    My Best Regards
