We had a really good day with Nathan, who wisely selected a just-right objective for us based on a brief outline of our experience. He also managed the pace well to accommodate for the effects of altitude. Nathan’s multi-day trips sound great and the new...More

I used to think I am not an outdoor girl. My trip with turtle mountain totally changed my view. I am falling love with the beautiful shangrila through our local guide Nima's excellent guide. And their home brewed beer is the bestest!
