I have no complaints about the trek.I do not expect “perfection” from organisers or clients-but as long as its 90% good,then the trip will be a success.
The key positive:
The quality of the guide and the porters (as well as their seamless interaction) in terms of helpfulness and mountain experience, always focusing on the objective of the client and never exhibiting negative attitude.This was awesome.
The equipment used even by the experienced guides,is sometimes lacking in standard.With a European perspective,there were places I would expect more security (ropes/crampons etc) but I assume this is a cultural thing in Nepal.Each region have different approaches to low and high risk scenarios.
This was probably a result of my stomach not being in good shape,but I would have hoped for a slightly more diverse menu.Ultimately,everything tasted the same-and I know this is partly due to altitude,boiling temperature,difficulty of transportation etc- but compared to treks in Latin America- there seems to be less focus on counting carbs/protein/energy etc.I do not think this was unique to the chef,who did a very good job in challenging conditions.
Thanks also to you for responding very well to questions from impatient clients etc and of course to the country of Nepal for offering such amazing scenery and hospitality.
I am going to Argentina in February and hope to be back to Nepal next October with skies.
We shot a very funny little film on the top of Mera Peak and he wanted to see it.I have just placed it on YOUTUBE and you can all see it.
