The itinerary description is not very updated, for example, the difficulty level stated "beginner", in fact, I think it is not beginner at all. Re our guide, I and my husband thank very much for your guiding service. He is professional. As our friend is not able to cope with this type of trek, she has to break the journey from day 2. During the first 2 days, as she is very slow, Martino was patience and helpful to her, and even helped her to re-plan the journey to enable her to return to town. I and my husband supported her to break the journey if she can't manage. This has nothing related to Martino, it is solely because she is not used to this type of trekking. Safety is utmost important. I thank Martino to ensure her safety return to town.
