It was a great trip. Carlos and the cooks and horsemen were amazing! They certainly made the trip. Beautiful scenery, easy walking, good food.
I thoroughly enjoyed hiking the mountain passes and would have loved a couple of longer days. Carlos worked very hard to accommodate a group of very differently skilled hikers. He ran back and forth all day. I would recommend asking people what their fitness level is so that maybe they can be paired accordingly.
We did spend a lot of time waiting. My only major complaint was that our tent's zipper was broken and we got bitten by mosquitos that night. I do hope that the guides and porters are payed a fair wage, they work very hard .
