Mountaineering is more than climbing panoramic views and wilderness experience. It is also challenge, risk and hardship. Those drawn to the mountains can find them exhilirating and irresistible as well as frustrating and even sometimes deadly. There are qualities to mountaineering that inspire us and bring us to rebel in a pursuit that is more than a pastime, more than a sport, a passion certainly and sometimes a compulsion. Distant views of mountain may speak of adventure, but they seldom more than hint at the joys and hardship that await. If you want to climb mountain, be prepared for the totality of nature- storms as well as soft breezes, tangled brush as well as soft flowers, biting insects as well singing birds. Mountaineering takes place in an environment indifferent to human needs and not everyone is willing to pay the price in harship for it's rich physical and spiritual rewards. (Mountaineeering - Freedom of the Hills - 5th Edition)
We hence invite you to be among the priviledged few who have chosen the path to being one with nature- one with all that lives. An invitation to conquer yourself while enjoying the adventure of a life time !
