Expedition

Today's mountaineering expedition is a social high altitude trekking experience with the goal of scaling the Himalayan top. Pre-expedition preparation is an important aspect of the protection and performance of climbing equipment, such as ropes, ice axes, and crampons.

Mountaineering in Nepal is one of the major activities that place Nepal as the ultimate in high altitude mountaineering without any alternative. The fact that Nepal comprises over 1310 snow-capped peaks with eight out of 14 peaks above 8000 m draws mountain enthusiasts from all over the world.

Apart from the obvious 8000 m expeditions, there is several 7000 m dream peaks ideal for fast expeditions with varying levels of climbing experience. The reward, though, is a stunning vision and an incredible impression of the lifetime accomplishment of standing at the top of the summit. Himalayan Social Journey has established logistical skills when planning a full-scale Himalayan expedition.

We provide totally directed support for expedition and logistics in Cho Oyu, Pumori, and Everest. We assist very experienced climbers and Base Camp leaders and provide mountain guides and high-level camp logistics.

Our guides climb 8000 m peaks like Mt. Everest season after season, They set up routes for western climbers and western guides, who usually do not have inherent predispositions to follow and operate professionally at very high altitudes. The minimum time needed for high altitude Himalayan climb is usually between 30 and 60 days.

The practice of challenging hiking above the snowline altitude in the Himalayas is known as the Mountaineering Expedition. This style of snow mountain trekking stresses teamwork, psychological difficulties resulting from loneliness, hard work, physical endurance, adverse weather, willingness to use climbing equipment in an influential manner, such as ice axes, crampons, ropes, etc., and confinement to small groups for weeks.

In order to be part of the expedition party, technical skills and expertise must be needed in order to be able to climb in steep terrain, technical ice, and rock, secure him and his belays on snow, ice, and rock, set up fixed ropes and identify danger due to concealed crevasses, avalanches, unstable snow, quickly changing weather conditions, cold, exhaustion, and high altitude temperatures.
