We were not quite sure if trekking was going to be something for us, especially because we were traveling with our 2,5yr old son. Ramesh gave us many tips, thought out of the box and suggested alternatives should the trip not be what we expected. Min, our guide was the best we could have wished for. He took plenty of time for us, arranged food and drinks, after a day or two Min just knew what we would have for drinks and would order for us so we haven’t had to wait. He chose excellent small hotels to stop along the way, played with our son and was a fine partner to have conversations with. He told a lot about the environment, life in Nepal and his native village where not much was left of it after the 2015 earthquake.
We have chosen to do an 8 day trek through Poon Hill, Ghandruk, Landruk, and the hotsprings.
The walking days were definitely not too long and the road there is plenty of opportunity for you to catch your breath and enjoy the view. Although we kept asking Min how far we still had to go and when we had our next stop, he kept being all friendly and smiling the whole time. We also hired a porter to carry our heavy bag along the way, it was his first trip though he seemed to enjoy it and ran uphill like he never did something else in his life ☺
After trekking we’ve decided to stay for a few extra days in Pokhara, the hotel Nepal Mountain Trekkers had arranged was really good, staff was wonderful and we just loved this city.
If in Nepal, you haven’t seen the beauty of this amazing country if you haven’t been trekking. Definitely would recommend Ramesh en Min, and all other guides at Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Good price, excellent service. Would do this all over again when we come back to Nepal.
