Quotes Thank you for showing us the wonderful part of Shangri-la and being such a great guide on our trek to Yubeng Village last Oct 2011. At first we were worried that it was going to be a very tough trek, but it turned out as one of our best ever. Russ gave door-to-door service, quickly learned our preferences, and showed us sights that we never would have found on our own. He took care of everything: transportation, luggage, accommodations, sightseeing, and good restaurants! Kesang who grew up in the region was a good source about what you want to know about Shangri-la. When we met Russ and Fei Fei on the first afternoon with a big smile, we knew this was going to be a good tour. Our journey filled up with so many good memories: friendly people, unique cultures, stunning landscapes of Kawa Karpo, tasty hotpot dinners, good Nepali food, a glacier walk, BBQ dinner, the long, winding and sunny hike on the last day's trek!

Quotes Hi there, We went with Russ to the Kapa Karwa region in October 2011 for trekking. It was an amazing time. Starting in Shangri La the weather was misty and cold. We stayed in Fai La Sei for the night. The morning starts misty again without any views on Kapa Karpo. But right after breakfast the sky raises up and step by step the full mountain range becomes visible. For the next days we had blue sky. We stay in Yubeng at the Guesthouse of Russ' friend Lobsang. It is really nice place to stay. Lobsang is such a nice guy. We did a Puja one morning. When the sun hit the mountain peak an avalanche comes down. If you plan to travel around Kapa Karpo you should asked if Russ is available. He is very familiar with that region. Kesang, his wife, grows up in this region and was a trekking guide over years. So both together can give you information you can trust in. Visit them at their café in the heart of Shangri-La. I promise you will love it. Have a fun at your trek. Manni Quotes

Quotes We went to the Meili Snow Mountain Range with Kesang and Russ in summer of 2010. Exciting trip! Saw a lot of the country, had very nice trekking days and marvelled at the mountain scenery. The both of them did a very good job: all very well organized, quite a number of unforeseen circumstances (road conditions, blocked roads, trouble with porters ...) dealt with in a sovereign manner. Additionally, Russ taught us quite a lot about culture and religion of the region. We'd love to come back and head out for a second trip with them ... Einen Trip mit Russ können wir nur empfehlen: Das Trekking in der Meili Snow Mountain Range (Sommer 2010) war beeindruckend, Kesang und Russ managten eine Reihe plötzlich auftretender Probleme souverän. Und in langen Gesprächen lernten wir viel über Religion und Kultur der Gegend. Gern wieder, sobald das Budget es gestattet. Quotes

Quotes We met Russ in the Black Pottery Coffee Cafe in Shangrila. And what a good luck that was! Russ gave us the confidence to undertake the week-long treks around Yubeng village and we are now still talking about it with our friends. The friendly people, the stunning scenery and last but not least Russ and his family made this the highlight of our 3-month China trip. Russ adapts the trip and the pace to his clients ability. We will certainly return and take part in the upcoming Full Chora's around Kapa Karbo! If you like to go to Meili, but don't know whether you can do it, talk to Russ and don't deny yourself this experience! Quotes
