Balthali village trek - 5 days, Nepal - Apr 17 - Apr 24, 2019
We did the 5-day Balthali trek with our guide, Ang Gelu Sherpa.
It was a throughly enjoyable experience! Our guide was very experienced (has done Everest summit twice!) and knowledgeable and took care of us, while also being friendly and happy to exchange stories and information about each others cultures/countries/previous treks.
We were able to meet the locals, eat decent Nepali and continental meal options 3 times a day and had adequate accommodation at the tea houses.
The accommodation on the first night in Nagarkot was particularly nice.
We also enjoyed the cultural tour of Kathmandu with our guide Surendra, He showed us around Darbar square and Patan among other places and told us the interesting historical background of each site!
Finally, our trip coordinator (Tashi), was great. He picked us up from the airport and checked in regularly to make sure we were enjoying things. He also provided a lift back to the airport and gave us his blessings at the end of the trip which was nice!
From my experience, I would highly recommend this company!
