Here is what Jack from California had to say about our Kilimanjaro/Mt. Kenya/Safari:
"The leaders made considerable efforts to insure a great climb on Kenya and memorable trekking of the Circuit Route around the massif. Climbing guides especially were all amazing in knowledge of mountain craft, experience and patience.
I was able to make the summit in the company of clients and guides from all over the world; Canada, Germany, Holland, Kenya and the US. The backgrounds among all the people here are equally as varied and interesting."

Mount Kailash - A Pilgrimage Around The Most Sacred Mountain In Tibet
This trip allows a sampling of two of the most exotic Buddhist cultures in the world, surrounded by the Himalaya, and crowned by Mt. Everest, our planet’s highest summit. Mt. Kailash is the most sacred, to both the Buddhist as well as Hindu peoples. Our journey visits the great cities of the region, Lhasa and Kathmandu, then sets off into the hinterlands of the high Himalaya, skirting under Mt. Everest, onto the barren heights of the Tibetan plateau, where we encounter revered Mt. Kailash, a holy summit set next to Manasarovar Lake. Our trek follows the pilgrim’s ancient footsteps around the mountain, where a three-day "Kora" trek is reputed to forgive a lifetime of sin, then we duck over the border into Nepal, with special permission that has allowed us to cross, but is denied to individual travelers. Our visit meanders on yak trails through exotic rugged outposts in Nepal’s highest, westernmost remote district of Humla, until we are able to find a village airstrip at Simikot and fly to the bustling west Nepal city of Nepalganj. Our final bus journey home takes us through the rural Terai plain, breadbasket of Nepal, to Buddha’s birthplace, Lumbini, then on to Pokhara, a pleasant town nestled in the foothills of the Himalaya. Finally, we climb once again through the Nepalese mountains into the Kathmandu valley, where it is time for celebration, feasting, reflection, exchanging addresses with new friends, and the flight home.
