International Adventures

We have run Trekking, Mountaineering, Cycling, Paragliding, Ski touring, Wildlife and Birding tours across the Himalayas for twenty years. In the process have hosted people from all over the world a lot of whom have come from such wonderful and far off place. Some exotic even.

 

The stories we heard from them and the images they shared with us about their backyards has pushed us to do more, to dream more and to explore more. From all the stories we have heard there is a long bucket list of journeys we would like to pursue.

 

We desire to explore the world, to chase adventures in places that are just as remote as our backyard and so we decided to do something about it.

 

We have curated a collection of a few expeditions across the world that we have always wanted to do. These are adventures that are a little more than just travel they are journeys that will allows us to connect more deeply with the land, its people and its culture.

 

We hope that this a the beginning to travel the world with you. Explore distant lands and hope that this list grow as long as our Himalayan adventures that we offer.

elbrus-region-854210_1920

Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe is located in the Central Cucasus in Russia. Greater Caucasus is traditionally divided into three regions: West Caucasus, Central and East Caucasus. The borders of these territories go along meridians that cross the Main Ridge over Mt.Elbrus (5642 m) in the West and Kazbek (5033 m) in the East. It is between these two giants that the most beautiful and interesting peaks stand, with more than forty of them surpassing the level of 4000m above the sea. It is here where seven caucasian fivethousanders arise their heads to the sky.

The two-headed ice giant - Elbrus, crowns the panorama of the Central Caucasus. It is by at least 1000m higher than all its neighbors. Volcano craters, filled now with ice and snow, form summit plateaux of 300-400m in diameter on both the tops. The Eastern Peak is a little lower than its western brother: 5621m and 5642m respectively. All of the massif is covered by a gigantic ice cap.

Our journey takes us to the remote Kazakh province of Bayan Olgii where we start our trek.
