Go and check it off your bucket list. We did the Adventure Trek it was challenging for me because I am out of shape but we'll worth it.

I'm sorry sir. But you commented on the wrong review with regards to the fees the guides are charging. In my review, i did not write any negative remarks about the prices charged by the guides. :)
