I am very glad that in the absence of tourists, the company organized this tour for me alone at the price of a group tour. The guide was really Russian speaking local Nepalese. The only minus of local guides is that the material is not deep enough, the previous tour with another more competent guide helped to figure it out. But the plus is of course the price.
