A friend in Delhi provided me with Dr. Kainthola's contact info, and he was able to secure the necessary permits, and plan the logistics for me in a very short amount of time, thus making a mountain escape possible.

What do I say? Thank you is not enough, adjectives like awesome, beautiful, and splendid don’t suffice. It does something to your soul and finding words to express that is always a difficult task. The food was good, the scenery breathtaking, Dr. Kainthola’s ‘Mountain Shepherds’ were outstanding, and the stay out of this world. I realized last week why Nanda... More
