Although I was in Nepal for the fifth time, I was able to gain new experiences with Ajaya and his family. This time there was only a short trek up the Poonhill. Ajaya organized everything neatly. Drive from KTM to Pokhara, "break in" in Pokhara, Ghorepanitrek to Poonhill, drive to his family in Chitwan to the Dashain Festival and return to KTM. Everything was so stress free, peaceful and you really felt like you were part of the family. The lodges during the trek were all carefully selected and were to our taste. The whole thing was so individual, you could change the plan at any time if you wanted. In the evenings we often played Nepal style cards, I rarely laughed so much. Even during the trek, Ajaya was funny and still very competent and was able to convey a lot of interesting facts. The family welcomed us warmly at the Dashain Festival. The girls immediately dressed my wife and Nora in traditional dresses. A big thank you also to Ajaya's wife, always with an enchanting smile on her lips, she cooked us so delicious several times. Even the obligatory goat testicles for the Dashain Festival tasted delicious ..... Best Guide ever, walking with his son!
