Great trip, the best thing I've done in Kathmandu. The guide's knowledge of Nepalese culture, religion and history is excellent. His English is very good and he speaks good French too. He puts the attendees' wishes first, never rushes, always cares if pace is adequate for everyone. Breakfast and especially lunch (included) was tasty too. Also was never asked or even encouraged to buy anything by anyone, all locals genuinely nice. I felt totally immersed in the local culture and life today, enjoyed great views of the mountains and unique blue sky, exercised, and met 2 very nice other tourists that came to the excursion. 5/5 - recommended.

A really great level of trek for beginners or moderate trekkers. Starting off with a local breakfast and easing into the mountain trek with some really great local knowledge and chats about Nepal. Great to see the locals who were super friendly and some awesome views. It was a little cloudy on the day I trekked but the guide made it so fun that it did not matter. Thanks for a memorable day :)

Overall an excellent way to go on a short trip outside Kathmandu and see local village life. Dining at local places for breakfast and lunch was the highlight... would not have done that on my own without a guide.

Had so much fun on this Trek! I highly recommend it because it is the perfect combination of challenge and easy going pace. The food we ate was delicious and the hosts were willing to accommodate/alter if needed! Best part of my visit to Nepal!

Even though it was cold, cloudy, and rainy, we enjoyed the part of the hike that we were able to complete. Karna was a great and friendly guide, and it was clear that everything was well organized. We felt a connection with him as well as the people we met at the restaurant. The only notes we would have is that the hike was definitely harder than expected, and we felt it was a little expensive in comparison to other things you could find (but it was a really fun and integral experience in our Kathmandu journey!)
