    The trek was so nice. Some of the biggest advantages or pros of the trek were that it was well organized. It was just perfectly done and it eased out a lot of things. The food and stay were well organized too. I personally loved the whole trek experience. Speaking of negatives, I could not come up or think about even a single drawback with this trip as such. It was a pleasant and a nice one.

    The trek was a good experience. I had pleasant yet adventurous vacation. It was quite scary to do such a long trek, and my knees are still hurting, but it was definitely a memory that I will cherish forever, especially because this was our honeymoon trip. It was a perfect vacation for the two of us. I suggest and recommend this trel.

    The trek was a memorable experience. I would not call this trek as the best one ever as there were few issues with the organization team from the very first. However, that being said, the trek was memorable because of the awesome experiences I gained through this.
