Treks beyond 3600 m take you beyond the tree-line into wild, alpine worlds and across high passes that are marked with colourful fluttering prayer-flags. Enjoy mesmorizing, panoramic views, blue sky and crystal-clear lakes in unforgettable mountain-worlds; visit remote villages and nomads with their herds sheep, yak and goat, and encounter Tibetan cultural heritage.

Whenever possible, we design your itinerary in such a way so that your body can adjust ideally to raising altitudes in order to minimize the risk of high altitude sickness. However, please note that the way one person adjusts to high altitude very much varies not only from person to person but from circumstance to circumstance; what is commonly considered as a trekking-route with ‘ideal adjustment to altitude’ is not possible on all trekking-routes; nor if you had no problem with a certain altitude previously does this guarantee that you will not have any altitude problems in a new circumstance in the future...
Each trek is unique and cannot be easily classified as not only altitudes but also type of terrain, temperatures and topography determine the physical challenge of a trek. Depending on your previous experience, your physical constitution, condition and your preferences we can help you choose the ideal trek for you. When advising you we take into considering desired daily hours of trekking, type of accommodation, altitude at overnight-sites for ideal adjustment to higher altitudes, type of trails/surface, permit-procedure and season.
