For any adventure seekers interested in honing their skills in the mountains of Nepal I can not recommend this program enough. If you’re a first time climber, climbed sport for years, have done minimal camping in the backcountry, or are an ultralight long distance trekking professional this program has everything you need to upskill in any area that interests you.
