I could just say ’what a brilliant trip’, but that is not enough. The trip exceeded my expectations, it pushed my physically, but not too far. Jill was a great leader, fun to be with, but firm and decisive when needed. The local team were excellent, the food the same (does Saila cater for UK functions?) and Jiri is a very good guide.
