Kedar was very attentive to my needs and even drove many hours to bring me new shoes when my boots gave me terrible blisters. He also supplied me with a trekking pole for my trip and helped me pick out the gear I needed for the trek. The guide was also very good and knew the trail well. He was also flexible and let me go at my own pace. Sometimes we pushed ahead and sometimes we rested when I got sick. I had a great experience and would recommend Actual Adventures.
