Hello everyone,

I’m doing an internship here in Himachal Pradesh. It will end in the beginning of October. Then I have time to travel in the Himalaya for 3 weeks.
I want to climb some higher mountains (some technical ones), but without using an agency. (But maybe hiring one guide) For this I am looking for adventurous people who want to join me and have mountaineering experience.
I am flexible about the area. But the best would be in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand or East-Kashmir. West Nepal is also ok.
I normally do sportclimbing, but have also some ice climbing and mountaineering experience.
If you want to know more details send me a message 🙂

  1. Servus Simon,

    ich bin auch gerade im Rahmen eines Praktikums in Indien(Lucknow), das Ende September zu Ende ist! Wollte im Anschluss nach Indien oder Nepal um wandern zu gehen und bei Gelegenheit auch direkt versuchen einen “Einsteiger 6000er” wie Island Peak oder eben in Indien z.B. den Stok Kangri anzugehen. Komme aus Niederbayern und bin des öfteren zum Wandern und Klettern unterwegs. Du kannst mir auch gerne über Whatsapp schreiben: +491607607275
    Liebe Grüße

  2. Hello Simon,

    A couple of us are interested. We’ve not done any technical climbs to speak of but we’ve summitted a few 6000m peaks. Do you have any peak in mind? We know guides based in Manali and Uttarkashi with whom we can plan an alpine style attempt.

  3. Hey Simon, I am planning to go to Ladakh but I am interested in easy mountaineering treks also. Have you guys decided what trek you are planning to do?

    • Hello Neha, two of us are going to attempt some peaks in Solang valley starting Oct 2. We’ll start with Friendship/Shitidhar. I’ve done Friendship peak in Apr earlier. We’ll try without a guide this time. Since we are planning to spend 7-10 days we’ll hire a porter to carry our food up to base camp.
