                                            Roof of the world

                                            At first, I was not ready to go to Everest, the roof of the world with my family. Then i advised well by Shepherd Team and we made it in a kinda style. That was the best feeling ever. Surrounded by white towered mountains, the peace environment, the cold wind that touches the soul is another level of happiness. Thanks to Shepherd Holidays for their kind service, will catch you again!
