Why Trek With Alpine Ascents?
There are certain treks that can really benefit from the support of trained guides and better logistics, the same reason why people continue to go to Peru and Nepal with us.
Specialty Trekking Program with Alpine Ascents
Pilot Program: Bhutan
The Story: Like Kilimanjaro, our Everest Trek and our Lodges of Peru trek, we believe that the more demanding treks around the world can truly benefit from the leadership of an experienced mountaineer and high quality amenities. With this in mind Alpine Ascents will look to offer 2-3 "boutique " treks each season. All trips will be led one of our esteemed guides, while carefully overseeing the food, lodging, tent camps of each expedition. Our goal is to make these treks enjoyable and more accessible to a wider variety outdoor enthusiasts.
Why the Snowman Trek: The Snowman trek into the pristine mountains of Bhutan has always been on our radar, but in this case, thanks goes to two of our climbers who nudged us on with an early commitment to join on. Their trust in Alpine Ascents inspired us to commit to one of the lengthier and demanding treks, and in short, we are extremely excited about the chance to spend over 3 weeks on the Bhutanese Himalayan Trail.
Our Thanks: Our thanks goes out to those who spurred us on to offer the Snowman and other treks, but also to the overwhelming response for more information and again, the trust in us that we can really personalize these great adventures with our unique style.
We look forward to your questions and ideas and look to offer treks in Ladakh, Sikkim, Patagonia and Papua New Guinea in the near future.

Alpine Ascents guides are revered as mountaineers, instructors and cultural enthusiasts. Climbing and trekking high peaks in the Himalayas and on every continent fully encompasses their expertise. Their passion and knowledge of different cultures is contagious, and will add to the already profound richness of your expedition. We are confident that our expertise is unsurpassed. We have been guiding treks during the past two decades and have consistently run expeditions each year. Our familiarity with the regions we visit, combined with our expertise and knowledge around the world, lend a depth to every expedition that we feel is unrivaled in the guiding community.
Part of Alpine Ascents' success is based on our small and select group of experienced guides. Alpine Ascents is fortunate to have close friends and expert staffs in the countries we visit. (Note: While guides are subject to change, your guides will be Himalayan veterans. This is what separates our treks and expeditions from others - your opportunity to travel and trek with some of the foremost climbers from the United States and Nepal.
All our treks will have a cybercast page on the Alpine Ascents website, with either audio or text updates every few days often with photos. Family, friends, and the public can follow the team on its adventures.
We believe that the trekker should be lost in the world of mountains and travel unfettered by the rigors of food preparation, lodging and logistics. Alpine Ascents offers the most comprehensive programs available, using distinguished staff, and a diverse assortment of quality meals. (Some of the food is flown in from the U.S. Although the local food is a part of our diet, we find that a wide variety of food helps keep trekkers healthy and strong).
