Being home to eight out of fourteen summits above 8000 metres, Nepal is a wonderful destination for Mountain Expedition. We organise mountain expeditions through our sister concern Adventure United Treks (P) Ltd in various mountains including Everest, Ama Dublam, Lhotse, Annapurna, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Kanchenjunga, Pumori and Nuptse, among others. Depending on the difficulty level of the expedition, a mountaineer planning to venture on an expedition, should have prior experience in addition to sound mental and physical health. Special gears and equipments, a permission from the government and skilled mountain guides and porters are necessary for mountain expeditions.
We have a team of experienced mountain guides, porters, Sherpas and other manpower required for the expedition. We arrange for the necessary gears and the permits required for the expeditions. Expeditions are organised generally in groups during two seasons, Autumn and Spring, of the year. Individual expedition can also be organised on the request of a client.
