You should have at least 6 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses.

"I researched and interviewed over a dozen tour companies to assist with our trip to Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet. I selected Yampu. I chose well."
"I just wanted to thank you for the lovely dinner Kings Lodge set up for us this evening. My brother said it both made the birthday and the vacation special. It was absolutely delightful and, much as every place on this trip so far as been above and beyond our expectations, I don't think any place so far could have had such a unique, delightful way of doing it."
"From a travel agent: They were thrilled with the trip, so thank you very much for taking such good care of them. From the client: The trip was fantastic. The one comment which we all repeated over and over was how well it was planned and that everything was perfection. "
"Our trip was really great overall. We really enjoyed Nepal and the folks up there were terrific! The Radisson in India was splendid I am very glad we bothered to make the switch. Thanks for all your help especially the last minute changes! Will definitely use your company in the future! Happy Holidays!"
"I had an absolutely wonderful trip! Thank you so much for all of your help and planning. The packet of information that you sent me was extremely helpful and gave me some great tips for the area I was visiting. My flights were perfect- thank you for the window seats and the brief layovers! My guide, Tika, was waiting for me at the airport when I arrived and she got me settled in my hotel and briefed me about our plan for the next day. The hotel was amazing too, it was very comfortable and relaxing. The itinerary that was set for my trek was detailed and accurate. The tea houses that we stayed at were nice, and everyone was very friendly. My guide was always attentive and made sure that I was taken care of, and that we were prepared for each day. We had a lot of interaction with other guides and trekkers along the way, which made this trip even better. All who involved with my trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar, did an amazing job. I always felt safe and taken care of, and that everything was going according to plan. And when our flight to Lukla was delayed that first day due to weather, arrangements were immediately made for me for another night at the hotel. I am so glad that Yampu Tours helped planned my trip. I had a wonderful time, and would love to use your travel assistance again in the future. "
