Destinations may vary in case of bad weather.


FAQ #1 – Can I participate in more than one of these outings?
Certainly, the more you do, the better. Training is the foundation for tackling mountaineering ascents. The lack of oxygen at high altitudes affects even the most trained bodies by about 30%. Therefore, your training should prepare you at 130% so that you are ready at 100% for a mountaineering ascent.
FAQ #2 – What happens in case of bad weather?
In case of bad weather we may choose another destination or another date for the hike
