Highlights

 
     
    Join this technical climbing course in one of the most iconic places for any mountaineering adventure: the Himalayas. It will take place over five different peaks. Thus, it will give you the opportunity to practice different techniques.

    This technical mountaineering course is similar to an IFMGA/NNMGA courseWe will cover climbing in different terrains, including rock, snow and ice. Also we’ll learn about crevasse rescue. And we’ll go over navigation techniques.

    Additionally, we’ll review different uses of ropes, knots and bolts. Finally, we will practice placing rock and snow anchors, and varied belaying techniquesThe course is perfect for climbers with previous mountaineering and/or trekking experience. 

    During our expedition, the climbing objectives will be the Island Peak (Imja Tse), standing at 6,189 meters. Also we’ll climb the Lobuje East (6,100m) and Mehra (5,820m), both in the Khumbu Valley.  And we’ll ascend Dingboche Ri and Kala Pathar too.

    But, the fun doesn’t stop there! We’ll also visit the base camp at Everest. And, we’ll explore the Gokyo Lakes.

    All these magnificent peaks will offer challenging yet attainable objectives. So they are an ideal combination for those getting involved in their first expedition.

    Finally, we have the option to ascend Mt. Ama Dablam (6,856m). Due to the difficulty level, on top of the IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide, this expedition is also led by local experienced sherpas. So you’ll be in expert hands. And you will be able to practice everything that you learned in a safe enviroment.

    If you want to join this incredible adventure, don’t hesitate and send me a request. It would be my pleasure to be your guide in the Himalayas. Looking for a shorter adventure? Check out this Bimal Nagar 2-day rock climbing tour.

    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!
