Three Peaks Nepal

Health & Fitness

Your health

Expedition members will be provided with pre-trip medical advice and a medical questionnaire and asked to visit their family physician to receive a full medical examination.  This information will be sighted only by the expedition leader and our medical adviser and treated with full confidentiality.

Level of experience required

This trip offers an opportunity to partake in a journey that covers a lot of terrain and enables you to make multiple ascents on peaks of moderate elevation. Participants should have a background in basic mountaineering or a history of physical exercise that can be applied to energetic trekking and the moderate altitude mountaineering that defines this expedition. Instruction in mountaineering will be provided to ensure the requisite skills are gained prior to the climbing commencing.                                                  

Each ascent involves a modicum of technical climbing at times where the use of crampons, ice axe and fixed ropes will be encountered.

What you carry on trek & mountain

We have porter support for the whole expedition. Each day when trekking you will carry your day pack containing; rain jacket, fleece, sun block, water, snacks, trekking poles, small personal first aid kit, camera and a few extra personal items. At higher elevations you add in a warm hat and gloves.

We also have the luxury of a strong Sherpa team that will carry most of the team equipment, food and ropes on each of the mountains. You are expected to carry your personal gear. This reinforces the need to take just the right amount of equipment with you on the mountain and to ensure you are ‘pack fit’ before you arrive on the expedition.
