international mountain guide education in the Himalayas.
This international education developed specifically for the high altitude environment and the skills needed by the next generation of mountaineers.
The aim is to educate skilled and knowledgeable guides, mountaineers and climbing teams with the highest standard of safety, technical - and soft skills, along with extensive experience at high altitude and in expedition management.
The participants will be equipped with the know-how of environmental impact and sustainability to contribute to the future of mountain tourism.
The education takes students to eight Himalayan peaks, including a first ascent and the ultimate challenge - reaching the summit of Mt. Everest.
The best certifications and guidelines in the industry have been integrated to form a solid foundation for the education. The curriculum have been developed on and adapted to the high altitude environment, to emphasise top expedition skills and improve practices for a sustainable future.
In five different phases, this education combines rigorous training in the Himalayas with academic studies. In between each phase participants have the opportunity to gain work experience, take additional courses and entrepreneurial challenges to build a strong platform for the future.
