Physical condition and prior experience:

Ascending a +6000m is always strenuous and a strong level of fitness is required – summit day will require 6-7 hours of trekking / climbing above 5000m. The climb has some easy technical sections and some basic climbing and mountaineering experience is preferable but not essential. 

We will review climbing and mountaineering skills during the climb, and this will cover the below points:

  • Ice and rock climbing techniques
  • Use of crampons and ice axe
  • Safe glacier travel including roped movement.
  • Ascending and descending on fixed ropes

Testimonials

"After two treks with a guide from Pokhara Mountain Tiger, I can highly recommend the services of Neema and his agency. My guide/porter was extremely trustworthy and friendly... They were quick and competent to answer my messages. Neema organised my trekking permits and the flight from Pokhara to Jomsom as well. Everything was perfect and very friendly."

In 2007, I trekked the full Annapurna Circuit. Neema was my guide, porter, translator, cultural interpreter, and friend. Trekking with Neema was a delight. Neema’s knowledge of the trails was invaluable. I highly recommend him to take care of youl. He is friendly, funny, and super experienced. Have a great trek!
