A great one! It was a very great trek for all of us. Everything was very well arranged. I and my girl went on this trip. The tour operator has very well maintained everything. It was on time and we started at around 8:30 AM. It was a refreshing day although a bit cold. For your own convenience you can wear thin sweater if you want. The scenic views are something that really made our trek more interesting. Just be a little cautious about the grounds at some parts. We also enjoyed a great lunch and refreshments. Thumbs up for this one!
