- Excellent trip, but more information should be provided about the terrain you are likely to experience. There is lots of scree, which makes walking down from the summit very hard work and quite dangerous at times. Several people fell/slid and there could have been a serious accident. Walking poles are useful and saved me from falling several times, but they are not recommended or even mentioned in the tour notes.
The accommodation at base camp is interesting! Maximum of 26 people to one dormitory, luckily ours wasn't full! Ear plugs are useful.
The food on the trek and in Marrakech was very good and the tour guides were excellent, helpful and looked after us well. It was particularly difficult for them as it was Ramadan and they weren't eating or drinking during the day. Particularly hard when climbing a mountain and having to look after a load of tourists as well.
