A Stunning trek - but you need to be prepared

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

At the end of a long, hot, hard day, walking in to the campsite at La Fouly at looking up at the incredible mountain scenery basked in the evening sunset. And taking that all in with a cold beer!

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader was fantastic. He worked with a very disparate group of individuals with different levels of fitness and got everyone through the Tour. He was always solicitous for anyone who was struggling, whilst at the same time making sure that the group achieved its day's objectives. I need to add a word about the camp wrangler, Andy, who set up our tents every day and prepared excellent meals. Best care anywhere.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

This is a fun trip, but it is a big trip. You owe it to yourself to increase fitness in the weeks leading up to the trek. That way you can concentrate on enjoying yourself. Nights can be cold, so a good sleeping bag is essential.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The tents are big enough for two people - but you might well appreciate the extra space and privacy afforded by having a tent to yourself. It is slightly more expensive, but you will be likely to be happy that you paid the extra.
