We went on a four day hike with Pattie. He was a lovely guy with a great sense of humour! The trip was very interesting and people are required to get the hiking permit through a guide for KK lake so a tour guide was needed. If you want to have a tour guide I would highly recommend Pattie/ Old Road Tours. We have posted our pictures on Facebook and have lots of admirers.
Recommendations to people using Abdul Tours/ Old Road Tours:
I would just suggest that people get a detailed description of the itinerary. We had thought that we were getting private accommodation but ended up in shared rooms two of the three nights. We enjoyed meeting the other people in our room and enjoyed the authentic experience staying in the sheep herders house so we were happy, but that might not suit everyone's tastes.
I would also highly recommend if you are not happy with the breakfast and lunch (We were being offered stale and sometimes fresh bread as the majority of the meal of breakfast and lunch at the beginning of our tour which is not really what you want before or right after a long trek). I did not hesitate after spending a lot on this tour to ask for home made meals/ warm food and this was accommodated for. However, I did speak to others on the trail who did not ask to change the food and they were disappointed so I would suggest asking.
Lastly, I would suggest trying to get a group together as the cost of going with just two people was very expensive, especially considering the low costs of operating in China.
