If NASA is hiding intelligent alien life, what would be their reasons?

Bear in mind that, to an alien, America isn't the be-all and end-all.

These days, it's easier: I get them to take images of areas of interest, particularly the HiRISE camera on the MRO, and pick them up over the net.)

Seriously saying there are no such best trek operators in India. All trek operators are just milking money out of a poor guy who dreams of putting a foot outside his known boundaries. I have firsthand experience with Indiahikes or trekthehimalayas some years back .They made batches each having a min of 30–40 people.
