We'll pencil you in and if the trip is able to proceed , we'll contact you to assess your intent to attend. Booking forms and equipment rental forms will at least enable us to assess interest and the equipment likely to be needed should the adventures proceed.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you've any questions and until the adventures recommence, stay safe!
This exciting and diverse expedition will ascend two peaks spanning the Khumbu and Makalu Barun regions of the Nepal Himalaya, affording intimate views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and the extraordinary range of high peaks in the area. We shall take advantage of the relatively non technical Mera Peak ascent as part of our acclimatisation program for the more challenging climb of Baruntse Peak. We avoid the busy Khumbu Everest trail and follow beautiful and quiet paths through the remote Hinku valley, crossing lofty passes and revelling in the unspoiled rugged wilderness.
Why climb with Andrew Lock Adventures? Because our focus is on giving you the very best opportunity to achieve your goal, safely. We will not rush the expedition or take shortcuts. We factor in additional contingency days for acclimatisation and bad weather. We have safety oxygen throughout the expedition and you have the very best leadership in Andrew Lock, supported by the best Sherpa climbing team in the business. Our single minded goal is your success and safe return.
For administration, liability and insurance purposes, the expedition will be conducted through K7 Kosciuszko Adventures, PO Box 593 Jindabyne, NSW .
