From

excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the Summit of Dome Des Ecrins at 08:40 on the Sunday morning after leaving the refuge at 04:00am! Overall the experience was great, certainly recommend Bernard's excellent skills at both guiding and pushing you to reach above your goals Tips? Good boots that you know are essential, you'll be working them hard over different terrain, with and without crampons. Stuff to eat while you're on the move or balanced on a snow-field - ideally softer the better - makes... (more)Rebecca Belton

Chomolhari trekking holiday, Bhutan
From

excluding flights
Memorable parts? Lots. The friendly people who seemed enjoyed to have their photo's taken. The scenery, the hundreds of prayer flags. As we trekked at high altitude, the many people we met driving horses, cows & yaks. But the best experience was caused by a mistake. On one night of the trek we lost our horses & luggage! Our clean socks & toothbrush went one way & we went another. Our guide rescued the situation by arranging us to stay in a yak-herders hut. The family very kindly took... (more)Alan Reimer
