We traveled through the Rolwaling with a guide, cook and porters organized with Holiday Mountain Treks. Our interest was to climb two peaks in the Rolwaling but had some problems with the weather on one peak and acclimatization on the other. We were quite happy and could not expect more with Holiday Mountain Treks, they organized the trip well and their price was great. Our guide was energetic and good with the group. The food was great. The cook made the best food with different test everyday. As well our porters were extremely hardworking and always cheerful. We will come back to climb again some mountains in this beautiful country and will definitely use the Holiday Mountain Treks. We will also highly recommend this agency to all our friends in Europe.
