Himlung & Saribung

The Expedition Team

Team Membership

For the Himlung expedition we will take a minimum of 6 people and a maximum of 12 people, hence spaces are limited. 

Logistics

The Himlung and Saribung Expedition is being organised and run by Adventure Consultants and will be operated to the same high standard we have for all our expeditions. Adventure Consultants expedition staff, along with the operations and logistics team at the head office in New Zealand, provide the highest level of backup and support to the climbing team in order to maximise your chances of success. This is coupled with a very strong expedition guiding team and Sherpa contingent, who are second-to-none in the industry.

Expedition Leader

The expedition leader will be scheduled approximately six months out from the trip start. All of our trip leaders have extensive experience at high altitude and a proven record of safety, success and compatibility.

Expedition Guides

Our international guiding staff are the best in the industry. You will find the Adventure Consultants mountain guides companionable and strong expedition leaders with considerable abilities and a willingness to see you achieve your goals. The number of guides is determined by the team size but the normal ratio of guides on Himlung is 1:6. and the ratio of  Sherpas is 1:2.

Sherpas

We have a legendary group of Climbing Sherpas, many who have been with us since 1992 and who operate in a harmonious atmosphere of cooperation and commitment to the expedition and its members. They are very experienced mountaineers who have dozens of ascents of the highest peaks in the Himalaya between them. They are enthusiastic, motivated and regarded as amongst the strongest and most cohesive group of Sherpas operating in the Himalayas. They are a humble yet friendly group of people and their contribution to the expedition is most impressive.

Our cooking staff are very well known for the sheer quality of the cuisine they produce. The array of food and the variety they present is phenomenal especially when considering they are doing all this from a kitchen that is moved on each day of the trek!

We have been developing and training the personnel within our Sherpa team for many years and they are an integral part of the Adventure Consultants Team.

Head Office Support Team

Running successful journeys and expeditions is more about experience, knowledge and strategic management than any other factors. As an organisation, we place a substantial amount of time and resources into ensuring our trips are well planned and supported. You can be assured that the AC staff will provide you with friendly advice and knowledgeable support throughout the planning stages of your trip and we will be there to provide backup while the trip is running.
