We loved this trip!!! Our guide Balen (apologies if I am not spelling her name correctly) was wonderful. We are not usually "guide" people, but we loved this hiking experience. Balen was a great hiking guide, but also very skilled and imparting information without being obtrusive. We did two hikes with our group (which was just us and one other participant). An easy one around the lake to gauge the groups fitness and a more intense hike up into the mountains, which was the perfect level of challenge for us and filled with breathtaking views....
