“Very good trekking”

Overall, we had a very nice trek to Khopra Ridge (7 days) with trekking planner. The office organized all the logisitcs well and the itinerary was beautiful. The price was also fair. Nevertheless, a few things keeps us from giving 5 stars. The english and communication skills of our guide/porter were not so great although they were very nice. We had trouble getting information sometimes and it was irritating to repeat the same questions over and over (where are we going? How long is it to the next village? Should we bring more water? Save our energy?). A guide should be proactive with its guests...and ideally know their first names by day 6. Visited April 2017
