This was probably the most challenging thing I have done but also the most incredible experience I have ever had! Just a word of advice to take the following: wet wipes, tissues, head lamp (or torch) for early morning summit, hiking poles (they make such a difference) and obliviously warm clothing (it gets freezing at night).

Absolutely amazing experience.

The over trip was a great time. Our guide Hector did an amazing job. Everything from preparing our sleeping arrangements to cooking food, he never stopped working and making our experience wonderful. Elvin and his family have great hospitality and preparation for our hike.

Flawless round-trip transportation. We loved the cultural and gastronomic route and both the guide and the organizer were charming and very professional at all times.

it was amazing but the next time i will book over www.aprode.net
