Great experience and adventure in the shadows of the most amazing mountains in the world!!! Plenty of time to acclimatise and socialise with your group, excellent leaders and guides, challenging but not excessive walking and an experience of a lifetime. Exodus made everything easy and the expertise and support shown by all staff on the trek made it everything I hoped it would be.
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Meeting people from all walks of life of different strengths and abilities was inspiring and encouraging to see. The climb up Kala Pattar early morning to see the sunrise was hard work, especially knowing you're doing an additional 3hrs to an already long days walking, but the views are breathtaking and worth every step.
- What did you think of your group leader?
Dawa was unbelieveably brilliant!! Every step of the way there was support to hand and the neverending knowledge of the area and landscape to answer all questions. Even the daft ones! Not forgetting the guides and yak drivers who were fantastic throughout the trip. Even to the point of voluntarily trekking back to a lodge to retrieve my phone - thanks a million Pemba!!
Top class people for a top class trip. The knowledge, support and friendship made it what it was. A million thanks to you all.
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If you've ever seen the highest mountain in the world on TV, it just doesn't do it justice. The vastness of the Himalayas and the ever extending peaks are amazing and unbelievably beautiful. Its back to the Lake District now but I am still in awe of this incredible landscape and the welcoming people who surround it. Exodus bring everthing to you, make it a hassle free and awesome experience that will stay with me forever.
Reasonable fitness will get you all the places you want to go and a little more aswell, so my advice would be to book it and enjoy the most amazing place on your own two feet. Have fun!!
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
What an excellent place to visit - and an eyeopener. Lukla is the tranqil place where your trek begins and what a place. Against all promises, visit the Irish bar on your return - its a night not to be missed, even if its just for the free popcorn, which after noodles, rice and omelettes, was like a triple chocolate gauteaux not to shared!!
Thanks Exodus for everything!
