I can recommend this trek. It was my first trek and my first time camping for over 55 years. I found the whole experience a bit of a challenge at times but great fun, and a wonderful experience. The pace was fine. I was rarely out of breath. None of us suffered any altitude problems. The guide was superb in every way, as were his assistant, cook, and muleteers. The group were excellent company and supportive of each other. The food was great.
