Is this for you?

  • This combined all inclusive "Trek and Expedition" are run on demand from October to April each year. 15 days in total. Due to the difficult nature of the expedition we try to keep the group small but need a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 clients.
  • A good mountain spirit and collaboration of all expedition members is essential for a successful and enjoyable experience. The weight of group items has to be shared between members. Besides the weather you should be prepared to carry up to 20 kgs on your backpack and be able to walk on very uncomfortable ground i.e. glacier moraines, screes, ice and snow. It is also expected that you help setting up/breaking camp and cooking. Extra porters are available if required.
  • Our guides are fully experienced in the area so expedition members will have to accept all decisions regarding weather, safety, member’s lack of ability and itinerary modifications of any degree.
