Very fun excursion, good walk and incredible views and landscapes. The fair organization, you have to take care of contacting people so as not to make a mistake on the buses. The sleeper buses are small, I am 1.85 meters tall and it was difficult for me to get into bed. We really enjoyed the excursion with a great guide!

Very nice trek but some scams

The trek is really magnificent! The guide was very friendly, the refuge comfortable and the meals very decent. However, we had to pay for our water, and we also had to carry our big bags, contrary to what was included. In addition, the other members of our group had paid 20 euros less than us and the program for the second day was not respected: we expected a rather intense day of walking with breakfast at 6.45 am and departure shortly after, but the breakfast was only at 9am and we only walked 2h30 during the day ... The agency therefore changed us from group without warning.
