My name is Silvia and I live in Brazil. I made my first trekking last year with Harka. I was so happy with Harka that this year I came back and made two more. We did the Anapurna Sanctuary again and the Ganesh Himal mountain.
As I am 63,for me was beeng the first time a great challenge and I guess for him also. We had a great time, it was wonderful. 
Harka is very concious and care about you, your food, your limits and your happyness.
