Superb
It was a well managed trekking tour. Our tour guide Michael was also good and a knowledgeable person with complete information of the terrain and treks........
It was an amazing experience. View was good. There were quite a few compromises made. The food was very average. Just Ghee Rice and Weird Maggi which didn't seem edible the next day. However the coordinator was good. He ensured that the trip was enjoyable. I also felt that the cost was on the higher side.. however it is very subjective. Overall, 4star as we still enjoyed which was our main objective.

The price was a bit more that what I'd have liked but after experiencing the whole trip, I was satisfied. They were punctual and attentive. The guide knew the place and stories about the place which made us get insight on the way. The arrangements were appropriate and it was hygienic. The sightseeing was fantabulous. I loved seeing the fields in particular. The view from the Dolphin Nose was spectacular! It was a really nice experience for me.
