How we operate treks and climbs

Our treks and climbs take people to some of the world's most iconic destinations and we are passionate about ensuring they have an experience that will be the memory of a lifetime while also protecting the environment and supporting the communities in which we operate. 

safety

Safety First

We are experts in high altitude trekking.  Our guides are exceptionally well trained and experienced in managing all aspects of trekking at altitude which is why we have managed to maintain a perfect safety record. On the mountain, we operate a high guide-to-client ratio. This allows us to conduct daily health and acclimatisation assessments for our climbers.

Exceptional Guides

Our great guides are at the heart of what we do. They are carefully selected  and trained by us to ensure they are amongst the best in their region. Our guides are all local to their region and love to share their culture and heritage with clients.

Expert Knowledge

We know all the areas in which we operate intimately using the best guides, the best gear and the best operating procedures.

 
environmentally friendly

Environmentally Friendly

Central to our philosophy is protecting the fragile environments in which we operate.  We are members of the Leave No Trace and Travellers Against Plastic campaigns and work continually to ensure our treks have the minimum environmental impact.

 
socially responsible

Socially Responsible

Being socially responsible and giving back to the communities in which we operate is important to us. In all the destinations we operate exploitation of porters is a real problem and as active members of IMEC we are at the front of ensuring best practice for all our teams. We also support at least one community project per destination with emphasis on the education of children and of their welfare.
