Fabulous in every aspect
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Being pushed to take on the Tricot challenge and developing an understanding of the challenges and dangers faced by the many mountaineers who climb in this region as we looked at the spectacular beauty of the mountains.
What did you think of your group leader?
Both John and Graham conducted themselves in a thoroughly professional manner but carried out their roles with humour and enthusiasm that demonstrated a passion for what they do. No request was too much for Graham, including the request for 2 bottles of Limoncello for his bar, and John demonstrated an amazing breadth of mountain knowledge on every subject from identifying conifers to the early ascent of many of the mountains, delivered in manageable bits that kept it all interesting and did not overwhelm.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The weather in the evening was cooler than I expected so I would take a few more warmer clothes than you might expect. Also - take the umbrella recommended on the trip notes. It comes in really useful walking in the rain in the mountains, keeping you a lot cooler than your waterproofs. I know you will be sceptical reading this advice about a trekking holiday - we all were as well when John suggested it!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Definitely one of the best trekking trips I have done.
