Mr Prem was very helpful in guiding us to the right trek. Mr Tenzin also helped us a lot and made arrangements to handle our other luggage's as well. The guides organized by them were very helpful. The entire trekking and camping was wonderful and memorable. All arrangements were hassle free. Thanks a ton to Potala Adventures and Prem and Tenzin for their support. Best wishes"
