Unclimbed Peak Expedition - Nepal

iboot-Orange Days23-Orange Level3-Orange

November 5th - 27th 2016

This is a once in a lifetime chance to climb an unclimbed peak around the height of 6000m in the remote region of Rolwaling, a truly "off the beaten track" region of Nepal.  This is one of the 7 hidden valleys of the Himalaya, on the border with Tibet and said to be the home of the Yeti.  This will be an amazing adventure and should appeal to any trekker or mountaineer wishing to complete a first ascent in a spectacular location, fully supported by climbing sherpas and full camp crew.

Kilimanjaro - Rongai Route

iboot-Orange Days11-Orange Level3-Orange

September 17th - 27th 2016 - OPEN

Your Kilimanjaro trek challenge uses the Rongai Route ascent from the northeastern side of the mountain passing along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. The trail retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective yet adventurous and enjoyable climb on mount Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro is the highest freestanding mountain in the world and stands at a height of 5,895m / 19,341ft.

The Rongai Route starts just south of the Kenya-Tanzania border and has been mostly unused for many years.  The Rongai Route begins in attractive farmland and forest, with the possibility of wildlife viewing, before passing through several different climate zones, adding considerably to the interest of the trek.

Temperatures drop at night, allowing you to enjoy the crisp cool air under the star-studded African skies. During the days you will rise higher, often looking down on a sea of clouds.

The expedition has been carefully planned to ensure that you acclimatise as much as possible to the altitude and your chances of making it to the summit are maximised.  You have an extra day's acclimatisation at Mawenzi Tarn to achieve this.

The deviation to Mawenzi Tarn is very beautiful and on a little-used trail through moorland. This route retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north.

On the final night before the summit climb you shall need to rise at around midnight to commence the final trek in the moonlight up the scree slopes to Gillman’s point. Your aim is to reach this point by dawn and continue around the rim to the highest point, Uhuru Peak. This is likely to be the toughest day that most trekkers have ever experienced, involving 1,195m of ascent and 2,195m of descent.
