In 2018 we are offering two trips. The first is an expedition into the world's second highest mountain range - the Cordillera Huayhuash in Peru. This is where the iconic mountaineering film "Touching the Void" took place. It's a vast, stunning range characterized by soaring Andes peaks, ancient glaciers, pristine rivers, alpine lakes and more.
The second offering is the Langtang Trek in Nepal, an 11-day exploration of the jaw-dropping Langtang Valley of the Himalayas. This route takes us from farmlands and villages high into the narrow Langtang Valley, which is guarded by 23,711' Langtang Lirung and other towering Himalayan peaks.
