Trekking trail through the village and local culture in between region was great. We felt very safe and comfortable to walk along the trail. Guide and porters are honest and smile always. Found happiness in the face of Nepalese people and the only things we need carry the extra snacks for the lunch. The lunch break point was not sure that there was only one house where we were expecting to have typical food. but, it was closed because of local festival.
