Whilst the climb is largely non-technical, some basic climbing and mountaineering skills are required to summit. Prior experience of this is beneficial but not required as training will be provided during the course of the climb.

Your climbing training will cover the basics of 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

"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."

Hans Fürer

“This was my first trekking experience and also my first time in Nepal. I cannot speak highly enough of the excellent care and support I recieved from my guide... Nepal is a wonderful country: come and see for yourself!”

Anjela Prentice

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!
