- This trip was brilliant for me - the challenge, the rest of the group were great, the team of porters, camp manager, cook, waiter - all of them were amazing, the singing and dancing and friendliness of everyone. The food was excellent considering the conditions for preparation and that everything had to be carried miles up the mountain. One highlight was the birthday cake the cook produced for one of our group. Another reaching the summit at sun rise - just magical and lastly our main guide Whitey who was absolutely wonderful, took care of us all, was fun and very professional - we felt completely safe in his hands.
The trip was quite physically challenging and the only thing I would say is that it shouldn't be undertaken lightly, you need strong legs, stamina and determination and be happy to put up with roughing it. In my case I was perfectly ok with this and the achievement was well worth the effort but I'm not sure it would suit some.
