It was a great experience! The trek was tough in some parts, but our guide helped us through it very well and even had walking sticks made from bamboo! The first day, one of the trekkers became very ill and the guide was very helpful and helpful! The sleeping places were also great for just an overnight stay! There was heating and good food. Prices along the way are higher than average, so make sure you have enough cash with you! Our guide was Kshitiz. We would like to give him a big compliment!

Really great experience with my guide bidur! Appreciate on the effectiveness of last minutes arrangement as i changed the date of the activity just one day before it started. Fortunately i captured the amazing mountains view and the sunrise in monsoon (june). With bidur who provided professional filming skill, i had bus of pretty pictures and videos. Grateful ly my journey accompanied by acquainted bidur.

We had a great time with our guide Keshab, who was super helpful and knowledgeable. The trek is enjoyable but be prepared for a steep ascent the first day. All the tea houses we stayed in were comfortable and had WiFi. The sunset from Poon Hill is worth the early start! All around great experience 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

This trip was amazing: even if we had unfortunately foggy/hazy days without a view. the trails, the villages on the way, the stops (restaurants and the hotels), the food and especially the guide (Santosh) were great!

We had such an amazing time at the cooking class. We prepared the Dal Bhat and it was so delicious. Definitely a highlight in Pokhara :)
