Join us on our annual mountaineering training programme and learn from the country’s leading instructors and mountaineers the art of technical climbing, mountain safety and rescue, wilderness first aid and much more, ready to keep yourself and others safe in the Himalayas and beyond.
Designed to to increase the safety margin of Nepali climbers and high altitude workers by encouraging responsible climbing practices in a supportive and community-based programme, we are creating an opportunity for a limited number of international climbers to join us as either a beginner or at an advanced level.
Held every January at our base in Phortse, Solukumbhu you will learn, practice and share your own experience with an elite group of climbers and mountaineers, rotating through different classes as you hone your mountain skills.
