    A fantastic trip!  A small and well balanced group of trekkers who got on really well, supported by a first class team of leader, guides and yak driver made this a trip to remember for all the right reasons.

    4.0 - Good

    Great mountain scapes. I opted out of the Peak ascent due to laziness. Very well looked after.MOST IMPORTANTLY, Luckla had a 2000 backlog of trekkers waiting to leave because of bad weather. Exodus got ALL of their clients out in the first 24 hours of the airlift. A fantastic achievement and reinforces my recommendations for this company.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Hearing someone say the top of Kongma La was as good as climbing Mera. No need to do that nowBooking a Dental appointment for NimaWhat did you think of your group leader?Nima was cheerful and supportive. He loves itDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Island Peak is the most technical climb Exodus do, harder than M Blanc, Cotopaxi, Kili.Is there anything else you would like to add?It was a great pleasure to have Valerie Parkinson with us. Lots of good stories and an Everest -eer.

    5.0 - Excellent

    Exceeded my expectations. Very well organised with really good local staff. Not for the faint-hearted, a very demanding trek even if you can cope with the altitude but just a wonderful experience.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Just being in the Khumbu region to see such magnificent scenery and see at first hand the lives of local people. Oh yes, and summiting at over 20,000ft!What did you think of your group leader?Very good, coped with everything very well and maintained a very happy team.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Be fit enough if you want to get the most from this trek and have the right gear, the hire equipment was not good.
