Dale's Story

What an amazing trip with amazing people. It was made even better by the wonderful group at South Sea Horizons. From the first meeting with Alan and Sai, you could tell it was going to be a fabulous trip. We were blessed with fantastic weather for a truly moving and emotional hike. Having our personal local historian Barnabus with us to keep us fully informed along the entire trail was an experience i’ll never forget. From the moment I met my personal porter I knew we would be good friends. Ben was a quiet local porter from a village that we passed along the way, he was half my size, carried a pack twice the size of mine and was behind me every step of the way. I lost count the amount of times he grabbed my pack and prevented me from EVER falling over. He introduced me to his lovely wife and two daughters when we passed through his village, and he was always on hand to offer any help I needed. Having local guides and porters who were nearly all direct descendants of the famous “Fuzzy Wuzzy Angles” was a real treat to hear their stories. Well done Allen, you have a great team around you. The guides/porters well and truly made our trip special, from the food, setting up tents, singing to us to making us the most special carvings for us to remember them always!
