I took the 2 day 1 night treking with Su. a very good deal! the hike he chose is very beautiful and he knows all the locals in the villages we hiked through! when one trail was busy with tourists, he took me on a lesser known trail. the homestay was very very nice too.

I would recommend this guide because 1) he knows the terrain like the back of his hand, 2) he is part of and knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the local culture, 3) he speaks good English, and 4) he is friendly and good-humoured. So you can be assured not only of a very complete and informative day out but also of a very pleasant and entertaining one.
