“...a real adventure...”

testimonial 1

We had a real adventure and perhaps it was a bit too adventurous, it was very strenuous, two of the party who have been to Everest base camp from the Tibet side said that this walk was harder. It was a wonderful experience, the mountains are truly spectacular, the food was great (and we really needed it) and the accommodation was fine, sometimes very basic and sometimes quite chic. We all agreed that we wouldn't have missed it for anything.
