The event was very mind-cathcing, informative. Eric was very friendly and expressed extra help by picking me up from the place i stayed, besides bringing me to the shop nearby for some souvenirs. The event is definitely worth going for, he explains with nice language for easy understanding. The locations are great, you will walk next to the sacred lake and go uphill a lovely temple. Highly recommended 💚
