Greater Ranges & Himalaya
Simon Yates For nearly twenty years now my own dreams have centered on mountains and during this time I have devoted myself to climbing, travelling and exploring in the great mountain ranges of the world. My adventures have taken me as far as Baffin Island in the north and Tierra del Fuego in the south, from Alaska in the west to Australia in the east. Not surprisingly however, the bulk of my time has been spent amongst the greatest concentration of high mountains on earth - The Himalayas. The countries of India, Pakistan and Nepal have become so familiar to me over time that now they feel like home. I have drawn upon my experience and knowledge of both people and places to produce the varied range of itineraries on offer, many of which are unique to Mountain Dream. The itineraries have been carefully planned to cater for a wide range of tastes and abilities, from the casual hill walker wishing to expand their horizons to the dedicated mountaineer looking for the next challenging objective. Himalayan Experience Himalayan Experience offers world renowned guided mountaineering and trekking expeditions to Everest, Manaslu, Lobuche, Lhotse and Nupste. It is one of the longest established expedition organisers in the Himalaya, with an enviable reputation for summit success and an unrivalled client safety record.
