We went to Nepal without a plan. We knew we had to choose one out of so many choices for the hiking trails. Good thing happened in the airport; We met Kisan, who is the managing director of the company. He explained to us and gave us a good offer. He made our trip easier and convenient. He arranged a driver to bring us to the places we want in Kathmandu and the driver knows really good place for Momo (the best one we ever had!!) Kisan also invited us to have authentic Nepalese dinner on our last day to ensure a good exposure on Nepalese food and culture.
Ram and Sauruz were our guide and porter. They were awesome, really thoughtful and kind to us, especially when i fell sick from the start of the hike. Ram made sure that i had hot drink while i hiked as i caught really bad flu, ensure that we had thick blanket at all tea houses, that we would not be sleeping in cold. Both of them will always ensure that our meals were served fast and satisfied with it. They went out of their way to give us a comfortable hike.
Perhaps just one thing to improve is the recommended hike is too short for us as we both love mountains and love to take photos. We would prefer longer time to spend on the hike and going slow than rushing the whole trek in 8 days.
It would be perfect if we were told in details about the itinerary of the hike to make an informed decision on how long we would want for the hike. We were told that we would only hike 4-5hours/day if we complete in 8 days. We understand that it varies according to individual speed. However, It would be more comfortable if the length of trek is recommended after a good assessment of what we wished to see/do/our speed preference during the trek. We were given a choice of 8-9 days despite that we have 14 days in total. So, I would not recommend 8 days for people who can afford, has longer time to travel and would love to enjoy the culture of different villages.
