Highlights

 
     

    Formally known as the Urkema Peak, the Baden Powell peak (5,826m) is a wonderful Himalayan mountain in Nepal.

    Standing tall on the border with China, the Baden Powell Peak is a quiet, mostly untouched, preserved peak. Few people venture to it. In fact, I myself am one of the first mountaineers to climb it. Thus making it a personal favourite of mine.

    This 13 day trip is perfect for people who want to avoid the crowds of the some of the other, more famous peaks in the range. It is for people who want to truly take in the peace and tranquillity that only the enormity of the Himalayas can offer. It is also a great example of real mountaineering because there are no fixed ropes. Instead, we will have to do everything ourselves. However, one similarity this peak has with the others in the area are the amazing views from its summit.

    From the fresh snow covered top of the Baden Powell, you will be able to see several amazing peaks. They include the Langtang Lirung (7,227m), Ganesh Himal (7,422m) and Shisha pangma (8,013m) in Tibet, among many others.

    Throughout the 13 day trip, you will be staying in hotels, tea houses and tents, all of which are very comfortable. You will also have the chance to explore Kathmandu. And you will get to visit such wonderful sights like the Langtang village and Kyanjin Gompa.

    With so many amazing and popular mountains in Nepal, to have the chance to climb one that few ever visit is a valuable thing. I wish to guide you to the summit of the Baden Powell peak, a truly beautiful mountain. Please send me a message if you wish to join me.

    If you want to climb one of the more popular, and much larger mountains in Nepal, I also offer a 31 day trek to the summit of Mount Manaslu.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
    I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
    I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
    I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
    I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
