Pikey Peak from Dhap - 10 Days - Sep 27 - Oct 4, 2018

Traveler: Michael W. - Local specialist: Prajwol Shrestha

It was the most delightful and impressive experience from the moment I made first contact with the company to the moment I was dropped off at Kathmandu airport after the trekking trip, and every step in between worked out exactly as planned. All questions and concerns were quickly and fully addressed; attention to details was second to none.

My guide Phurba and porter Lakpa were the best I could have asked for. Not only were they excellent at what they were supposed to do, they were such fun and laid back guys, and worked so naturally to match my level of physical fitness. By only the end of the first day trekking, we had all become trekking buddies!

The trek itself had some lovely moments, and a few great views of the mountain range, but nothing extraordinary. Much of the trail is comprised of pesky loose rocks (terrible on the knee and ankle joints) and almost the entire trail is full of animal droppings. (think bad smells) Next time I'd like to try the higher elevation treks.

Thank you very much for taking out some of your precious time on writing and sharing your experience, Michael. It was a great pleasure to organize the trip to Pikey Peak for you and glad to know that you are happy with our team's effort on making your trip a successful one. But I am sorry that you felt some discomfort on the trail due to loose rocks and animal poops. But if you choose to do higher elevation trek, there won't be the similar problem.

I look forward to helping you again for your next plan in Nepal.
