It is worth to join this tour especially for the one who don’t have much experience on hiking. Issac is a very kind person. He not only take you to the peak but also help you to take some glorious photos 😁

Absolutely smashing holiday. No pressure to keep a particular running pace and the guides and entire group were supportive and amazing to spend time with. Going again next year (already booked and paid!)
