I did the 5 day singalilia ridge trek and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The trek is challenging in parts but with the support of our fabulous guide Tenzi and fuelled by the amazing food and lots of tea, we did it! You really get bang for your buck on this trek, with views of 4 out of 5 and of the worlds highest peaks.
I was a little apprehensive before the trek about my physical fitness and Catherine couldn’t have been more helpful providing reassurance, checklists, and equipment such as a sleeping bag and liner to make sure I was cozy at night.
I loved that we had a local guide and stayed in homestays along the route, which meant we were supporting the local economy which relies heavily on tourism, unlike some other trekking companies. The car transfers, accommodation and food was all fantastic. I really couldn’t fault this. I am going home with lots of great memories. Thank you Catherine and Gautam, I’ve never felt so well looked after 🥰
