This is a fabulous trip for moderately fit people - age we found is no bar.
Victor and Ashley our guides were very encouraging, and we were lucky with beautiful weather. Cool at night and mostly fine days. The camp cooking was exceptional for wilderness cuisine. The wild flowers were stunning especially the prickly scaparia, of many hues. The buttongrass moorlands with mountains behid were vistas from heaven. This should be on all eco-friendly Australians' bucket list.

Our exploratory treks involve trekking in variable conditions, on some days more than eight or even twelve hours a day. They include travel along remote, ill defined trails and may venture into snow and ice requiring the use of mountaineering boots, crampons and ice axe. Expect to carry up to 12-15kgs in your rucksack on some stages of the expedition. You may well spend a reasonable portion of the trip at altitude (with some days in excess of 5500m) and normally have several camps on glaciers. You will need an excellent level of fitness and be completely comfortable in adverse weather conditions in remote areas. Suggested preparation: One hour of aerobic type exercise, four to five times a week for three to six months prior to departure. Hill walking with a pack in variable weather conditions.
