One of my favourite tour companies I have ever booked with.. was a great service from start to finish… Juve’s knowledge and passion was evident throughout. I would highly recommend this company as the tour are also very small (not a massive group) so you also get a better experience
breathtaking nature. literally. it’s a high altitude walk. take care. be prepared and you Will be really pleased with the beauty of it.
The climb was so worth it!!! It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Prepare well for the altitude but it is a must visit!
Without a doubt a natural wonder that you can not miss … But it is definitely very physically demanding to be able to reach the top
Fantastic experience but tough to those who are not good at altitude like me. I used a horse to go up to half way for 60 solos, which was helpful. Early start is worth it as not many people around but FREEZING!
