Both the Himalayan trips as well as disaster relief were organized side by side.

Our team never held back a moment to develop new itineraries and revise old ones, in fact even itineraries for volunteering activities were developed.

Island Peak Expedition

Island Peak Expedition

This Mountain is located in the middle of Chhukung Valley. Hence the name Island Peak proves its relevance, standing in the middle surrounded by ice. This trip is one of the most popular destinations for amateur climbers, since climbing higher mountains requires a lot of training. However, don’t take it for granted since the island provides as much challenge as there are rewards. For one, climbers need to start at around 1 am in the morning to avoid noon winds during the summit. A trip scheduled for 16 days including acclimatization, this trip includes a mountain flight to Lukla, trekking in the land of Sherpas, and travelling beyond the Lhotse Glacier.
