Frequently asked questions
Do I need any previous experience?
Ideally your'll have walked in the Uk or over seas before but no prior experience is required. We will be effected by the altitude but we will discuss how to manage that prior trek. Walking in the mountains can be very physically demanding so all we ask is that you have good level fitness.
What equipment do I need ?
This is a summer walking trip so there is not need for crampons or Ice axes ! We will send you a detailed packing list once your place is confirmed .
Where do we meet ?
Please do not book your flights until your place has been confirmed, We will send you details of the flights that we are on and hopefully you can book around that, Ideally we will all meet at a central airport travel together.
