From start to finish, the 360 ethos was apparent and stayed with us throughout – Rolfe and the team were immense. Climbing Mount Kenya from the east, via Chogoria Gate was a great option due to being more challenging, more remote and virtually no other trekkers insight. My highlights were waking up each morning at awesome wild campsites, stargazing and summiting Point Lenana at dawn with an incredible 360 panoramic view. 5 words to describe: epic, majestic, inspiring, off-grid and fun!
Testimonials : General
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everybody at 360 for a totally awesome expedition skills course last week. The week did exactly what it said on the tin plus much more, from the discussions around weather and avalanches, to self arresting, rock climbing and abseiling and then putting it all together to summit the Maladeta on a gorgeous day everything was great! The instruction from Rolfe and support from Jamie alongside a great team bond helped everybody learn new skills and overcome fears (abseiling for me). I feel I now have both the confidence and the tools for whatever Kang Yatse II throws at me later in the year!
We had really good support leading up to the expedition and on the mountain. The porters and the group were amazing – especially the singing and support on the summit day. I really felt that they wanted us to summit as opposed to just doing a job. The food was also amazing.
The trip of a lifetime! A real challenge but what an experience! We were extremely well looked after- Mussa and his team of guides and porters made this trip. Jo was excellent- felt we were in very safe and capable hands! I can’t praise the team enough. My personal highlights were the changing scenery and landscapes, the singing and talking. The Team!!!
Huge thanks to Helen and the office team for all the updates and tips. That’s what I love about 360 Expeditions – they’re so professional and always deliver!
