Great trip in a spectacular region
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Drinking fresh water from the mountain streams, swimming in the lakes, Griffon Vultures and Golden Eagles circling above us, rewarding views at the end of a tough climb, enjoying a soak in the hot tub, to a cold beer at the end of the day. Too many great moments in this trip to pick just one :-)
What did you think of your group leader?
Yves and Florian were great leaders and were always on hand to answer questions or offer advice. Yves knows the area inside out and it where we couldn't see a track, he would find one and lead us safely to the summits.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Due to the hot weather during our trip, and the lack of huts/refuges along the way and we needed to carry at least 2Ltrs of water a day if not more. Luckily we could top-up/drink from the streams as the animals were not grazing high up, but be prepared this is a remote region and does not have facilities you may have experienced in other areas of the Alps. The accommodation was great, but it was not always possible to have separate male/female dorms and you do need a sleeping bag liner. In the more remote places hot water and electricity were limited.
