Trekking peaks is a permit classification, and are the least expensive permits for climbing. They are also peaks that have been classified as having the least amount of technical climbing to reach the summit. Generally, these peaks can be done in a day from a high camp to the summit and back to high camp on the same day. The routes we use are chosen for their objective safety, involve easy angled snow slopes, straightforward ridges and occasionally minor scrambling. You will be using crampons, an ice axe, harnesses, fixed ropes, etc. for ascending and descending. We will introduce, review, demonstrate and provide ample time to practice all the skills required for the climbing. Trekking Peaks are carefully designed to deliver an exciting opportunity to climb a Himalayan peak while providing proper acclimatization. These treks are open to fit, determined walkers who have previously undertaken ‘strenuous’ treks; previous mountaineering experience is an advantage but not essential.
