Annapurna Trek

This was my second time to Nepal with World Expeditions and previously trekked to Mardi Himal Base Camp. This trip I saw it through my fiancé’s eyes and it gave me such joy to see her so engaged with the culture and natural beauty of Nepal. From being a little apprehensive she has, through the whole WE and Nepalese experience, been converted to an adventure traveller. Ramesh and the team made us feel so special at Christmas and baked all of us a cake for Christmas Eve. A Christmas filled with so much joy and spirit – very special indeed.

I have already started to look at the latest brochure and planning future treks and have been reading with interest about the work you have been undertaking on the camp sites in the Everest region. Congratulations on such a great initiative. As the Head of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability for one of Australia’s largest property groups (DEXUS Property Group) I take a keen interest in the work that you do in this area.

Haute Route & Mont Blanc

One of the greatest alpine journeys, the Haute Route, stretches from Chamonix in the French Alps to Zermatt, in the Swiss Alps. On this tour we venture off the main trails into the heart of the alps, trekking across glaciers with magnificent mountain backdrops such as the Matterhorn. During the Haute Route Traverse, we not only learn basic mountaineering skills but most importantly we are well acclimatised before attempting our climb on Mont Blanc. To join this expedition you will need a very good level of fitness with good walking and scrambling experience. Previous mountaineering is an advantage, however not essential and this compact itinerary should more than satisfy all aspiring mountaineers.
