Highlights

 
     

    Mountain climbing is the type of activity people spend a lifetime trying to master. And because of that, I am offering a 35 day mountaineering course in the Himalayas that will properly prepare you for any future climbing aspirations you may have.

    The main purpose of this course is for you to learn by doing. Hence why the course takes place in the Himalayas. I believe the best way to learn how to climb in mountains is by actually climbing mountains. And on this trip you will climb several challenging peaks. Those peaks include the Imja Tse (6,189m), also known as the Island Peak, the Mehra peak (5,820m), Mount Ama Dablam (6,856m), and the Lobuche east summit (6,100m).

    You will also have the chance to trek to places like Namche Bazar, Kala patherGokyo Ri, Machermo and even the legendary Mount Everest base camp (5,364m). In each of these places you will get to enjoy some of the most incredible views you will ever experience, while also constantly learning and practising all of the skills necessary for successful and safe mountaineering. We will cover ice climbing, rock climbing, crevasse rescue, navigation, rope work, and so much more.

    The Himalayas are home to some of the most beautiful and challenging peaks in the world. Climbing them is the dream of many people with hopes of touching the sky and looking down at the Earth below. And on this 35 day course, you will get to climb some of those peaks, while also learning from a certified guide how to properly do so. Please message me if you want to join me.

    If you would like to join me on a shorter climbing expedition in Himalayas, I also offer a 13 day climb of the beautiful but lesser known Baden Powell peak.

    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!
