Triple summit success in the Alps

Triple summit success in the Alps

Earlier this month five clients with a head for heights travelled to the Alps on our Mont Blanc Summit trekking peak adventure. We were very pleased to receive encouraging reports from our trek leader, Kevin O’Neale, highlighting that the group had managed to summit an impressive three peaks, all over 4,000m.

Standing high at 4,810m, Mont Blanc presents a challenging mission and requires a great level of skill and careful acclimatisation to altitude. The group completed skills refreshment on Trift Glacier and, in order to maximise their chances of summit success on Mont Blanc, ascended two smaller peaks over 4,000m - Allalinhorn (4,027m) and Weissmies (4,017m). Sadly, due to the nature of adventure travel, challenging weather conditions meant that the group could not summit Mont Blanc itself, however the accomplishment of ascending neighbouring peaks and traversing exhilarating glaciers are all individual achievements in their own right.In place of Mont Blanc the group took on the technical ascent of Nadelhorn (4,327m) on their final day, after which the group returned to Saas Grund in the Swiss Alps for a celebratory meal.

Well done everyone!

Mountain Kingdoms clients return to Bhutan

Bhutan is back open after two long years, and Ian and Lizzy were amongst our first clients to return. They were doing the Druk Path Trek and here’s what they had to say about their time in Bhutan.

"Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you’re ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing in camp."
