Great trip, I had the pleasure to meet such nice people including our guide, stayed at a mountain hut which had an amazing atmosphere and smell of some awesome traditional food! Even though in the sleeping area wasn't warm, I had a very good night sleep (with my ''best friend'' = earplugs). It was one of the best guided trips in my life!
