Summiters

The Rolwaling Mountaineering School

March 24th - May 4th

Learn the skills necessary to become a safe and successful mountaineer from seasoned Everest summiters! Our instructors have years of experience guiding clients up many of the worlds highest mountains, let them teach you to lead yourself!

We offer a unique program combining both practical mountaineering instruction and cultural interaction to give our students the most rewarding experience possible. Most of our instruction comes from Sherpa Mountaineers who have summited many of the world's highest summits. As an added bonus, these instructors are all native to the valley in which our program takes place. We will have the opportunity to learn about them and their culture, be welcomed into their homes to sleep and eat, and join them in celebrating important religious ceremonies. Additionally, we will have the opportunity to give back to the local community through optional volunteer and service projects.

The remote Rolwaling Valley, where most of the course will take place, also offers an added attraction. A sacred valley, believed by the Sherpas to be a hidden valley where one can escape the troubles and turmoil of the outside world; Rolwaling has been closed to independent trekkers. By joining us on our course, you will be among the few who have had the opportunity to see this beautiful, relatively untouched area while getting to know its mountains and inhabitants intimately. A land of smiling faces, high mountains, deep valleys and natural beauty, it is the rare traveler who remains untouched by its splendor.

Participants in our program will have the opportunity to learn mountaineering among the world's highest peaks from some of the most experienced and fabled climbers in the world while enjoying the warmth of the Sherpa community. To learn more about this exciting adventure, explore the links below:
