MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
There were a number of inspiring moments, the trip on the cable car to the Accueill de Midi is magnificent it takes you up to 4480 mtrs and is right next to Mont Blanc a truly enchanting exparience, the other highlights occured on every walk just being in the Alps and seeing such majestic sights in particular the numerous glaciers.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our group leader was Nick Mortley and he was absolutely first class he had a real depth of knowledge for all things mountain and walking . He lead our group of 14 very well always being sensitive to the needs of everyone and getting the pace just right.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The trip is graded as moderate and whilst we coped well it was no less demanding than the trip we did to Mt Toubkal which was graded as challenging i would say make sure you have good fitness because of the amount of ascending and descending each day it can be hard on the knees if they are prone to problems but other than that just the usual stuff i.e good boots waterproofs wicking layers and water bottles.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
My wife and i loved this trip the other people on the trip were great fun and real team players we couldnt have asked for more and genuinely found it excellent value for money.
