I stayed with my hole family in Machulo for various weeks and this trip was one of the best experiences I ever had. The trek was easy but a nice challenge for the whole time, the cooking we had was delicious and truly enjoyable having into account in what height we were, but mostly having 4 8000 peaks on sight was something I will never forget. All I can say is thanks to Kamal and the whole team for making this awesome experience possible.

My husband and I had the pleasure to visit Hushe Valley. We booked the Machulo La Trek. The crew of Felix Guesthouse were wonderful with locally grown delicious food. The mountain team guided by Rustam, a very experienced and kind high altitude mountaineer, was wonderful and safe. We got the best of the best camping equipment like tents and down sleeping bags, so comfortable it was in the “thinner” air up high. Wonderful views we got on those slopes. The food what Ali the cook managed to serve was superb. I can recommend Visit in Pakistan enough. The people are so kind and humble. We felt like a home away from home. We will come back, thank you Kamal and Rustam and team. Brigitte and Andy
