Mountaineering Courses in Lang Tang Valley
Posted March 21st, 2013 - 11:59 am by from Widen, Switzerland (Permalink)
Hey guys!

I arrived on the 19th of March in Kathmandu, soon I will leave this crazy city to spend around 2 weeks in the khumbu vally, doing some trekking.

I'm organising a privat mountaineer course in the Langtang Valley for myself in April. I use this opportunity to find some people who would be intrested in learning mountaineering techniques profundly.

We would leave to the Langtang Valley for learning mountaineering techniques during 15 days, teached by a professional and licenced nepali mountainguide in english.

This is an easy describtion of what we will learn during these days:

material and knots
Hiking / Climbing without crampons
ascending, descending, traversing techniques
Correct using of ice pick
hiking / climbing with crampons on snow, firn and ice
Belay forms on ice/fin/snow
belay forms for walking on glaciers
cravass rescue
belay forms in ice
ice climbing

The guide would be booked for 15 days, that means we have probably more time as we need for the course it self. We can also combine it with rock climbing and a litte trekking in the langtang valley.

The total cost for the guide during 15 days would be around 700$, including his equiptment, his food and acomodation, his transport cost). Maybe even less. This is just an indication. We would of course split this price into the amount of participants.

Let me know if you are interestet, what kind of gear you have and what gear you need etc.. Which days you would be available

I hope to hear from you
kind regards
miguel
