What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

First, seeing extensive meadows of wild flowers with such a wide variety and very unexpected. The scenery was very beautiful and I certainly recommend the trek. Wonderful ice-cream (very many varieties) in the Italian section of the trek. The other trekkers were very friendly and all went well.

What did you think of your group leader?

Excellent and he allowed us some freedom and at the same time coped well with the differing speed of the trekkers. He gave help where needed and one felt confident with him.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

This trek involves a lot of uphill around 11,000metres so a certain amount of fitness is required so that one can enjoy the challenge. Obviously there was as much downhill which is hard on the knees. But at my age of 75 I did not suffer.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

One of the best treks I have been on!
