Our Guide, Dipak Prasad Sapkota is very knowledgeable and aware of the needs of the trekkers. Dipak knows the area and successfully led the group (5 trekkers and two porters) over six days. His cooking is varied and amazing. Dipak spolied us every night with homemade desserts. The Porters, Hom and Manouj were attentive and always asking us if we wanted tea or coffee. All three of them made sure we had blankets, first aid, hot breakfasts, hearty meals, fresh bread, and Snickers bars. Their smiles every day made the trip very enjoyable. It is a challenging climb, but definitely doable, and well-worth the fresh air and up-close views of Fish Tail. Dipak and Hom assisted by holding our hands during parts of the climb and descent and this gave a feeling of reassurance. Pristine is definitely the company to hire for your treks.
