On the Gondogoro La
K2, Concordia and the Gondogoro La

This is a stunning trek, highly recommended for lovers of big mountains. I've been to the Indian and Nepalese Himalayas and the scenery in the Karakoram surpassed them all. There was plenty of adventure from

start to finish, kicking off with a drive up the infamous Karakoram Highway complete with armed escorts and landslides! Highlights are many – the views from Concordia are epic and well worth all the effort to get there. The 360 degree panorama taking in K2, Broad Peak and the Gasherbrums is breath taking. The night time ascent of the Gondogoro La with its 40-50 degree slopes at 5500m is certainly not for the faint hearted (or unfit!). Competence with ice axe and crampons on steep snow slopes is essential as being stuck behind someone who is not up to the job is not much fun for other members of the group. The trek was well organised from start to finish. The local guides, camp staff and porters were all incredibly professional and efficient; the food was amazing and the tents modern and spacious. The tour leader, Tom Richardson, was top class and a pleasure to be with in the hills.

This was my first KE holiday and first experience of hut to hut trekking. My wife and I both had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this holiday to any seasoned hill walker. Prior to booking, we read

all the info KE provided about the itenerary, kit list etc. and because of this felt extremely well prepared (note: pack toilet paper - not on the kit list but needed for the final hut!!) The Slovenian guides on the trek were also very helpful and knowledgeable and we were lucky enough to be trekking with a great bunch of people. Consequently we had an awesome time! If great mountain days, stunning scenery and summits that provide a sense of achievement are your thing, this holiday is highly recommended!

On the Gondogoro La
K2, Concordia and the Gondogoro La

The scenery in the Karakorams is simply awe-inspiring. There was a real sense of good feeling among our team; partly due to the incredible shared experience of being in such a magical place, but also largely

owing to the wonderful treatment we received from our Pakistani hosts and from Tom's (our group leader) sense of humour. Tom's knowledge of the region is tremendous and he had stories of funny misadventures in nearly every mountain we passed. And there were a lot of mountains! KE were brilliant at helping us all rearrange our flights (there was a coup in Turkey the day before most of us were due to fly out to Pakistan on Turkish Airlines). On the journey to Skardu, we had to find accommodation at the last minute in Gilgit (due to a delay as a result of a landslide on the KKH). KE, Tom and Baltistan Tours made sure we all had accommodation and I was very glad at that point that I was not trying to travel independently. The food throughout the trip was really superb. In the most trying conditions (on glaciers, in the middle of the night, after days without fresh supplies), the kitchen boys managed to produce heaps of delicious food. This trip in Pakistan was the best holiday i have been on. The company was great and everything was organised so well. I would highly recommend this trip. The scenery really blew me away and I got so much more out of the trip by going with KE than I believe I could have done by going with another company given that the Karakorams is KE's specialist region. I will be back next year!

Volcano above Lake Atitlan
Treasures of Guatemala and Belize

16 August 2016

Many, many highlights! From staring into the bubbling crater of Pacaya and eating by headtorch watching Fuego erupt in the distance to enjoying the sunset over Lake Atitlan after a great day canoeing and

hiking - we knew this was going to be a special holiday after the first couple of days. Juan and Welber made an excellent pairing as guide and driver and their knowledge of Maya and other indiginous cultures was superb. Tikal is simply stunning and Juan brought it fully back to life as it truly is his passion. Caye Caulker and Crooked Tree are equally stunning. TIPS: Take walking poles for Pacaya and walking boots not walking-style trainers - that lava dust gets everywhere! Take US dollars for Belize (exchange rate fixed at 2:1 so everywhere accepts them) You may have to try a couple of ATMs in Antigua to get Guatemalan quetzels - the banks will change dollars to quetzels but only $200 a day and it is quite time-comsuming as they have an issue with money laudering.
