The trek is very scenic and I had 4 very nice days. However, it is not recommended for people with low physical conditions as it is not an easy trek. The first 2 days includes an ascent of 2000ft which is quite challenging due to the high altitude, even for trained people. Therefore, from our group of 8 people, only 3 made it to the top of Kuari pass. The nights are extremely cold and required several (wool) layers of cloth, so prepare well! The sleeping bag we got was very warm and suitable for cold conditions, however, our dining tent was very thin and had holes so that wind came in. So the time between sunset and sleeping was quite uncomfortable due to the cold. The management of the operator beforehand was not that good. We were told to bring many documents, which in the end were not needed. This was quite annoying because it consumed time. Also, the guest house we stayed in was a quite low budget and the communication was a bit slow. The company was not prepared properly for snow at this early time of the year, so we had to ask several times for proper snow gaiters or even a second guide. The guides that we had were all friendly, but very young (19-24 years). I wish there would have been at least one guide that would have been more experienced. Overall I enjoyed the trek due to the beauty of the mountains
