Better than I expected due to the inherent interest of the trip. The leader also contributed to my enjoyment of the trip.

Great trek in a quiet (few other trek teams) and stunning part of Nepal. Support of the trek crew and trip leader was excellent and the crew became good friends very quickly in the trip.

Ade was a very competent leader, balancing the needs and capabilities of the group to make sure we kept to plan and had the support that was needed. I would happily go trekking with him again.The best part was the high point of the trek: the two days before reaching Shershon and the start of the walk out. Fantastic scenery, few other trekkers, good weather.Good contact with the Sherpas, 'James' and Prukas.The group bonded well, and we had some entertaining discussions in the evenings over dinner.Any improvements would involve changing the topography of Nepal, so aren't really practical!
