  1. Best Tour to See Nepal
    By Helen Schizas March 10, 2024
    If you want to see this rare part of the world where Hinduism and Buddhism align together, then travel to Nepal. You will see the best of it if you choose Keshar. He was the best guide and probably an asset of Mosaic Adventure. Keshar did a really good job filling our curious brains with information about Hinduism and Buddhism. It is truly a trip of a lifetime.
