There is always a first time for everything and climbing a mountain can be one of the best things to try for the first time. There are various options for non-technical peaks that can be attempted by novice climbers. Our guides will lead you and train you, if necessary, to reach the summit.

For a comfortable journey shoes have thick soles will help you a lot. As there are lots of rocky and steep trails, getting a specific trekking shoe would be a wise idea. However, on snow routes, you will need crampons, ice-ax, and another climbing harness.

Is there a facility for communication on the trip?

Most of the popular trails have local VHF Phones but, in remote and isolated regions the communication is limited or not available at all. So, in these cases, a satellite phone is required for communication.
