    I am so in love with this trek. This was one of the most challenging and lively trips that I have taken. It was super fun. I enjoyed it a lot. I wish I do more such interesting treks. Some of the positives of this trek are that it was well-planned. It was awesome and good. I loved the fact that the trek was at the right level of difficulty. Some of the cons were that the food was not up to our expectations.

    This is easily the best trek that I have had. I always wanted to go to Nepal, but it wasn’t feasible. Finally when I did visit here for this trek, I am first sad for their recent natural tragedy, but the city is still beautiful and I totally love it. I wish I could stay there. The trek was so beautiful. I loved it totally. I would actually want to try it again. Also, I realised there are a lot of Nepal treks. If you visit during the right time and season, you will probably enjoy it a lot.

    I don’t understand what the hype is all about this trek. This was just a nice and fine trek. It was moderate level of challenge and it was overpriced to say the very least.
