What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

After a challenging climb to the top of a pass, finally arriving and feeling as though we were on top of the world looking down on creation. All the usual daily stresses a million miles away.

What did you think of your group leader?

Both leaders where encouraging and easy to converse with. There was no pressure on how fast we walked, the time taken for breaks, with all members of the group included in decisions and discussions on the days route.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

There are a couple of tough days walking and scrambling over rocks, but with sufficient preparation the walk is very achievable. Whilst I was concerned about carrying my sleeping bag and extra clothes for the two overnight stays and the height and narrowness of some of the passes, these concerns did not materialise. If you enjoy walking through amazing mountains, then I would recommend this walk.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The clothes list should include thermals and waterproof pants and the need for a beach towel removed.
