The staff is awesome, the lodge and the surrounding area where the hikes take place is breathtaking, the lectures are captivating and the food is gourmet. I came here to lose a few pounds, which actually ended up to be more than 10 pounds, to kick start me to a new lifestyle. But more important I received a road map to future success. This included the realization that dietary habits can actually be successfully changed. I was at Mountain Trek in mid-May and while home I have had an increased energy level and am more focused. The hikes are challenging, but with 14 guests categorized into 4 levels, the guides inspire you along the way. Interestingly, most participants come as solo travelers. Don't decide not to go to Mountain Trek because it is a little off the beaten track. It is well worth the effort to come here.
