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 explain us every night about local culture and practice of Nepal. The Porters, Hom and Manoj 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. We heard He open new company ; we are very exciting to go back to Nepal and trek with him again. We wish him successful business ahead.
