review 21 Oct 2009

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

For me it was the challenge of walking some 200km over a high pass over a period of 16 days. And seeing some beautiful scenery on the way. I also met some very nice and interesting fellow travellers.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared. Prepared for some exhausting trekking & all extremes of weather, from boiling hot & sunburnt to freezing cold nights.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I think the fact that we bring money into the local economy is a good thing, although I'm not sure what proportion of my holiday cost actually reached them. Prices were so cheap, it might have been better to arrange it myself and pay the local people direct. We did try to minimise the waste we produced, particularly in the form of plastic bottles, by using iodine sterilisation and safe water points.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant. I will be back.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Coming down the western side of Thorong La pass (5416m) in the sunshine after starting the climb up to it by moonlight in sub-zero temperatures.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Buy a walking pole for the steep descents if you don't have one - they are cheap everywhere en-route.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Very much so as all our food and drink was bought from local communities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A great walk - each day somehow managed to be better than the last.
