The high mountains of Nepal offer a unique challenge to mountaineers. You won't find this combination of breath taking scenery, extremes of temperature and diversity of terrain anywhere else in the world. All of this has earned the Nepal mountains as the perfect training ground for mountaineering. For our Climbing Clinic, we are based in Cho-la with much of the best climbing in the Everest area right outside the front door. Cho-la pass is situated at 5,200m up in the heart of the Everest region. It is an ideal base for developing climbing skills, technique and confidence with our experienced and qualified instructors.

So why not join us at Cho-la while we encounter a unique Himalayan mountaineering experience like glaciers, crevasses and steep ice walls and learn how to deal with them confidently. By the end of the course we will aim to have equipped you with the basic skills and be ready to take on Lobuche East which is 6,000m. The course will cover use of ice axe and crampons, self arrest, crevasse rescue, rope work, glacier travel and front point.

Previous experience: Summer hill walking and a good level of fitness.
