Lower mustang trek - 9 days, Nepal - Oct 20 - Oct 27, 2018
We had a glorious time last week trekking through Lower Mustang and would like to take this opportunity to commend Chhiring for his first-rate guide service. It was a pleasure to walk with him.
It was my 14-year-old son Dylan’s first trekking experience and Chhiring did an excellent job of gauging our comfort and ability levels to ensure that we were always challenged but never overwhelmed.
Chhiring knows the Mustang area well, affording us glimpses into otherwise hidden corners, and was always willing to accommodate tweaks to our itinerary - even if it meant lingering longer in a Tibetan temple or adding extra hours and kilometers to our scheduled trek.
Chhiring has an easy way about him, always calm, cool and upbeat – crucial traits on the trail. He was respectful, open and communicative with locals, and provided just enough special insights to be interesting but not overbearing. Chhiring struck a perfect balance.
So, too, did our hardworking porter. We were not able to communicate with him on the same meaningful level as we did with Chhiring, but he was also pleasant to be around - though he was usually streaking well ahead of us on the trail.
All in all, we had a splendid time and owe much of that life-changing experience to Chhiring, our porter and the KimKim Team. Accept here our gratitude and we look forward to our next KimKim guided tour of Nepal.
All the best,
Shawn W. Crispin
