    We were there to book a chitwan-nationalpark package. At the end we were there for more than 1 1/2 hours and talked with the stuff. He gave us many information and hints about things to see in and around Pokhara and Kathmandu. Moreover he gave us a really good description about the nationalpark and the different hotels there.
