Ganesh -- Thank you so much for loving our country Nepal, and specially Mahakulung. We are always welcome you to make your journey memorable one.

Andreas Keller -- I am from France, I met Mr, Ganesh kulung when I was going Everest Base Camp trekking in 2005.I found he is very honest and hardworking so that we have been very good friend within the short period of time. He often talks about trekking in Nepal, and about Mahakulung which is located Solukhumbu Everest region Nepal. I made plan to go Ganesh`s home town Gudel, a part of Mahakulung after talking long time. It was a great and new experience for me in Gudel. People from Gudel are really awesome. I got huge experience about the life style of Kulung people. Mr, Ganesh recently opened his own trekking company called Himalayan Wild Treks and running his trekking business. We wish him all the best. Andreas Keller Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris, France
