Also, only positive and kind feedback towards the company who was behind this experience.: professional, trustworthy and reliable and excellent guide (Shiva) and porter service.

Asian Heritage Treks and Expedition had planned a great acclimatization hike to bring us to Island Peak basecamp in the best shape. Thanks to this we kept our oxygen levels real high. Unfortunately the weather was against us and high winds an too much snow made summiting too dangerous, and we followed the advice of the expert sherpas provided by the company. For sure I will go and try again in 2020 and without doubt again with Asian Heritage and with their excellent guide Shiva.
