Nepal blessed with 8 out of the 14 highest peaks in the world; thousands of mountaineers visit Nepal to realize their dream of standing on the summit of Himalayas.

Raj Bala Treks and Expeditions offer you the chance to take part in a very seriously high altitude mountain climbing expedition. Broadly speaking, this involves establishing a series of camps up the mountain, and the movement up and down between camps to stock them with provisions and to acclimatize the body. Some routes require technical climbing proficiency in sections, and you must have gained such skills prior to the trip. It is not a suitable undertaking for a novice to the Himlayas! We emphasize that you should be well aware of the risks and challenges, both physical and mental, such adventures at high altitude present.

We are committed to provide you with the best quality of service and experience to help you reach your goal. However, all climbing members will have had considerable climbing experience at higher altitudes, preferably in Himalaya. Each climber will be aware of the inherent risks - bad weather, injury and death - associated with climbing Everest and understand that the possibility of actually summit is very slim. There will be a manager at base camp to assist the team and act as a liaison between climbers and the Sherpas. All members will be assisted by our high quality Sherpa. Our Nepalese mountain guides and climbing Sherpas are some of the most experienced in the world and will assist you as much as possible on your summit attempt.

We expect all participants on expeditions to Himalaya have prior alpine experience and to be competent rock climbers.

Physical and Mental Fitness Requirements

A Challenging trip is more difficult than any other program we offer. Each of these expeditions has an ambitious objective or goal that necessitates cooperation, contribution and a positive spirit from every member for it to be successful and ultimately rewarding and enjoyable for all. Being personally very fit and healthy will allow you to cope with the rigors of the trip through all conditions right through to the finish, and being mentally ready to embrace the variety of experiences involved is equally important. We strongly encourage intending participants to talk and meet with us directly as early as possible to

discuss your ideas and ensure you have chosen the right trip for your level of experience and fitness.

Physical fitness for a challenging program should be an ongoing thing, which should start from a base at around 4 to 6 months prior to departure and increase to build maximum endurance, stamina, flexibility and familiarity with the anticipated routine as much as possible by your trip commencement. Three to five hard sessions of 40 to 60 minutes of physical exercise per week such as running, hill walking, swimming, cycling or gym work will build excellent aerobic capacity and overall endurance and stamina which are so important in trekking and climbing at altitude. Overnight or multi day bushwalks ( on

rough, loose and rocky terrain should be incorporated in your training regime also; this develops skill and confidence on difficult terrain you will find on expedition. Rest and recovery, whilst at the same time steadily increasing your

routine and incorporating variety, are just as important parts of the process if you intend to maintain and enjoy the regime for any duration. (We hope that it will become a 'lifetime' thing...!)

With a solid training regime comes a more relaxed disposition, more energy and usually better walking and breathing technique, which ultimately leads to you having a great trip rather than some kind of survival experience. Likewise overnight camping bushwalks encourage you to become self-actualized and self-reliant, making the daily routine on trek; getting ready on time, keeping clean, helping out and so on; much, much easier and less stressful. Plan early with us and prepare yourself physically on a continuing basis right the way through,rather than putting it off for periods.
