PERFECT GANESH HIMAL TREK
PERFECT GANESH HIMAL TREK
WE enjoyed everything during our 13 days Ganesh Himal trek. The daily distance were perfect, the caw pine sites were excellent with wonderful views of the mountains, the staff was happy and full of music giving us many joyful memories : Some suggestions For improvement : Better knowledge of English among all staff (Even porters) would improve communication and thus giving a better understanding-mutually. We find the ?tip system? difficult since we don?t know anything about the level of salaries and about the exceptions. Perhaps it would be possible to include this in the price for the trek if the customer agrees, Provide the customer with a good map of trekking area including distance, elevations and campsites, Best Wishes for your future .

Very Interesting and Wonderful Trekking
Very Interesting and Wonderful Trekking
Thanks for a very interesting and wonderful trekking in Ganesh Himal. This was our first trip to Nepal and we have no greater previous experience in trekking. However, things went remarkably well thanks to our excellent guide and very supportive porters/ Chef / Sherpas. Food was beyond expectations, circumstances under which it was prepared. The walk up to Sing La Pass and then down to next campsite was a little bit hard for us, specially since Henric got a slight altitude sickness, we also much appreciated the visit to our guide's parent home and the kind of reception we got there. Guided tours for three days in and around Kathmandu also contributed and made this into a very memorable holidays.
