Everything about the trip was excellent. Our leader, Bir Bahadur Magar, was very good – very conscientious and hardworking and very well organised. The crew was very good. The food was excellent and we really appreciated the effort Bir and the head cook went to to ensure we had fresh local vegetables all the time.
The only suggestion I would make is that the trip needs a couple of extra days. A rest day/optional excursion day on the day after coming down from Larkya La to give people’s knees a chance to recover from the huge descent before yet another long day of descending to Dharapani and at least one extra day in Manang as a buffer against bad weather. If that day isn’t needed, it can always be used in Jomsom (side trip to Kagbeni perhaps) or in Pokhara.
Best wishes for now,
Lesley and Carmel
