What's the fastest way to prepare for climbing Everest, K2, and 8000 metre peaks?
Dear Mountain friend, We hope you are well and looking forward to getting back to the mountains.
Previously you expressed an interest in climbing a 7000m peak, and we are delighted to inform you that China is opening up again for foreign visitors in July. So it seems we can return to the Himalaya. Please read down for China's famous easy peak of Mustagata.
Also, we have 7000 and 8000 metre climbs now opening for September, October, November, and beyond! Please check below to see the offerings!
Our Mustagata climb is going ahead as planned and we have places in the team this July. We have chosen to climb the peak in July, a time when the snow conditions are good, the mountain is not too "melted-out", and the route is relatively pristine and clean. It’s a great chance to climb the world's easiest 7546 metre peak this summer and see how you do at altitude. Also a fabulous opportunity for skiing, boarding, snowshoeing/snow raquetting.
