Wow kepler, probably deserves an ode but a mere review will have to suffice. Spectacular scenery from lakeside to fern filled forests and gnarly trees growing sideways out of the hillside to sweeping views of valleys and lakes with clouds rolling in and out like the tide. With good weather the views cannot be beat. The sleeping huts make your pack lighter. This trek is a must do!
