The whole experience has been fantastic. Mt Kerinci is a tough one but the team made everything smooth. From the food (even respecting my lactose intolerance) to the care they give you, they were amazing! Yon, Zayp and Subur have been the best mountain guides!
Definitely recommend this company for great service, care and respect for the environment.
