About

The remote and spectacular Kumaon region in the state of Uttarakhand is the setting for this high-altitude mountaineering course.
In these surroundings, you'll learn how to carry out an international expedition, focusing on topics such as expedition planning, cultural awareness, high altitude physiology, and mountaineering skills.
Beginning your trek into the mountains at 5,500 feet, you'll travel on trails through forests and small villages, interacting with the local people. Taking advantage of non-moving days to learn the technical skills necessary to move higher in an alpine environment, this course has the potential for camping as high as 18,000 feet.
The breathtaking scenery, variety of terrain and travel, and tremendous opportunities for cultural interactions are what make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
