For those who want to enter the great peaks of the Himalayas outside of commercial expeditions, we have created this “Himalayan school”.

To the north of Manaslu there is a little-exploited region with mountains between 6,400 and 6,900m, some virgin and several with the possibility of opening new routes of all difficulties, even with skis.

We manage all the logistics up to the base camp. The different teams can pursue different objectives at the level of each one or unite to achieve a common objective. Always in complete autonomy, without fixed ropes or height porters and at all times we coordinate and are advised by Jordi Tosas and our team in Nepal.

Practical information:


This is one of the many routes that we can prepare for you or your group.

If you want more information about all the possible areas to ski in Nepal you can see our blog: SKIING IN THE HIMALAYA, WHERE? WHEN? AND FOR WHOM?

Ski Nepal - Expedición Skimo zona Manaslu

The expedition is planned from a base camp located near the river and very close to the entrance to the glacier. For 12 days the camp will be set up and supplied with food for everyone. From there we will have to enter the glacier towards the mountains.

From the base camp we will have to be autonomous among ourselves, but advised and coordinated by our staff. The necessary equipment for the roped party must be provided by her, as well as the height tent, kitchens and gas. The ropes will be independent, but in any case we will all be on the mountain to learn and to help each other in all cases. Even if different routes are chosen, there will always be someone advising. If it is necessary to equip a section of cracks or rimayas, the material can be shared. The ascent of the Panbari can be done with two or four fields of height.

Any meteorological or risk factor may lead to a change of plans by our guide, who will be in charge of implementing alternatives based on our European weather forecasters in real time and coordinating our local support team.

Technical level:

The program is designed to adapt the technical level of the ascents to the highest possible level of enjoyment. In the Himalayas the mountains are harsh. Obviously, the main difficulty is the altitude (lack of oxygen) and its harsh climate. It is important to have a good command of the technique, as well as some experience in winter mountaineering and if you decide to come with skis, have a good command of the technique.

The participant must meet both physical and mental conditions to undertake this type of expedition, since otherwise all their expectations may be frustrated. The more prepared we are, the more chances we will have of reaching the summit. Normally the rate of ascent will be slow, we have to reserve strength as much as possible for the days of higher altitude.

Before the start, each participant must prepare on their own by training and go out into the mountains as much as possible. All participants who want to can make one or two weekend outings with us. In this outing we are going to work on the most important aspects that will mark an expedition to the Himalayas: rhythm, cooking at altitude, setting up and supplying a field, specific climbing techniques, acclimatization, material, altitude medicine…

Nepal Treks - Trekkings personalizados a medida

As mountain professionals we not only seek the greatest enjoyment, but also the highest possible degree of safety during the activities. For this we will have personal safety equipment, permanent communication and a sufficient first aid kit.

It is essential to have insurance that covers these incidents and is mandatory for all participants.

Accommodation, Food and Material:

The approach will be in lodges (local buildings) of comfort comparable to that of a high mountain refuge. At the base camp we will sleep in tents. Our bag must guarantee a minimum temperature of -10ºC, especially for nights at altitude.

The food will be of the highest standard possible within the remote situation where we will find ourselves. If any of you have any special requirements, please do not hesitate to let us know.

We will send an individual material list to each participant so that they can bring everything they need with them.
