Amazing hike with two lovely guides! It was our first time hiking in snow but they were really reassuring and well prepared for the hike. The views on the way up and at the top was magnificent! The trail started off easy and got harder towards the top but it was worth the effort. We stopped by a hut halfway and had a hearty meal (big portion!). The guy manning the hut was very friendly as well and gave us homemade bread and cake! This was the main highlight of our trip and though it was moderately challenging, we will highly recommend this to beginners who are fit and adventurous! The guides also took pictures for us and we are looking forward to seeing them :)

It was a wonderful experience and a beautiful and unforgettable memory. It was perfectly planned from morning to evening. It couldn't have been better! All tour guides were the best!

Great canyons and waterfalls. Excursion worth seeing. Our guide competent and super nice. We learned a lot about the country from its stories. I hope he gets his tractor soon
