Have you ever wanted to climb a real mountain

May 9, 2017

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to climb a real mountain?

Do you read the stories of people climbing Mt Everest and wonder what it must be like? Have you ever considered giving it a try (not Everest, just a big mountain!) but then dismissed the idea because you think it would be just too hard.  And added to that I bet you’ve thought:

1) I have no experience
2) I’m not sure if I’m fit enough
3) Who would I go with that I could trust… that I could really trust
4) What about the clothing and equipment I’d need
5) How would I get properly prepared
6) What about the food

So the idea gets put on the backburner because it’s all just too confusing and you really don’t know where to start. But it keeps gnawing away at you. Another year comes and goes and you’re still thinking about it. Wondering if you could.

Imagine signing up for a tennis camp and finding your coaches for the week were Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic. You’d feel like you were in pretty good hands. You’d certainly feel pretty confident you were going to experience something special.

But if you decided to join an introductory mountaineering experience with us, we’d hook you up with Tika Tamang, Sanduk Tamang, Lhakpa Sherpa and your truly. Yep, hardly household names, but between us we have 18 summits of Mt Everest. We’re all pretty crap at tennis but if checking out Nepal and climbing a mountain has ever been on your radar then our October 2017 Mera Peak in Nepal expedition might just be for you.
