KE Adventure Travel has an outstanding collection of climbing holidays that will take you to the world's most spectacular mountain ranges. Our climbing trips usually involve the ascent of snow-covered peaks where climbing ropes, ice axes and other items of mountaineering equipment may be used. Our range comprises of big peaks in the Himalayas, like Mera Peak, Aconcagua - the highest peak in the Southern Hemisphere and Mount Khuiten rising above the Mongolian Steppe. There are also unusual peaks such as the volcanoes of Ecuador, Guatemala or Iceland as well as a number of Alpine classics, including Mont Blanc.

Each of our climbing holidays provides you with something unique, and all benefit from absolutely stunning views across the natural wonders of the world. As you look down from above the cloud line you can't help but be awed by the magnificence, scale and scope before you. When your holiday is over, you'll have achieved something amazing and leave with memories that will last you a lifetime.

Our climbing holidays can involve multi-day approaches on foot to a basecamp below the objective mountain. On this stage of the trip (which is effectively trekking) there will usually be the support of a trek crew to carry personal belongings, along with any tents, group climbing equipment, food and cooking equipment. The climbing is generally above the snow-line and can be at high altitude. Most of our climbing holidays have an experienced Western leader and in the case of our Alpine trips, the leader is always IFMGA qualified. None of our climbing trips requires more than a single mountaineering ice-axe, together with crampons and a climbing harness. Ropes may be used to safeguard steep or exposed sections or crevassed sections of the route. With long days, high altitudes, glacier camping and the possibility of encountering poor weather, these trips can be challenging. It is important that you read and understand our grading system and also refer to the specific trip notes for more detailed information. It is essential that you are fit and experienced enough for the trip that you have chosen before booking.

A first ascent of Mukot Peak
Climb Dolpo's Mukot Peak   Alexander (CALGARY)

The Mukot Peak trip was way more that I could have expected. Having been on a previous KE trip in the Himalayas (Mera 2012) I though I knew what to expect; weather, temperature, physicality, and the day to day

routine. But this trip took everything to new extremes. Starting out in the hot, dry, and desert like Dolpo region then climbing up to base camp which was cold and snowed on us for several days/evenings. Our group was fortunate enough to grab the summit and the very first ascent! After which the walk out was much more challenging than expected. Having 3 > 5000m passes made for some difficult days, but also some spectacular views. This trip is not for the faint of heart. It will test you (everyone in our group got sick at some point), but the end result is a fantastic adventure that I will never forget.

CHC - Chamonix Alpine Climbing Course
Chamonix Alpine Climbing Course   William (MAIDSTONE)

I had a brilliant time on the course. I'm an experienced climber so the first day of learning was quite easy for me but I still learnt a couple of new techniques. Glacier travel and small amounts of ice

climbing was wonderful, such a beautiful environment! The next couple of days had very poor weather and although the guides tried their best to keep us occupied we did learn some skills, one of the days was spent entirely at the chalet and only half the day was spent learning rope skills. The weather was too poor to allow us to ascend to a mountain hut to stay the night in, but thankfully it cleared a bit for the final day, allowing us to go up and climb the stunning cosmique arete. It was an incredibly exhilarating day. Though I can't help but think if the weather had been too bad for us to climb on the final day, I would have left feeling quite disappointed.

WIT - Mount Toubkal in Winter
Mount Toubkal in Winter   George (INVERNESS)

This trip was exactly as we expected. We had an excellent introduction to some of the American National Parks. There was a lot of driving which was made more comfortable as there were only 4 people on the trip

in a van made for 12. The walking was correspondingly not very demanding but after reading the itinerary was as expected. The camping was excellent in Yellowstone but noisy at Grand Canyon. The night at Monument Valley was not our cup of tea but maybe loved by others! The hotel accommodation was fine. The guide was very friendly and informative, a very good cook and did everything to make our trip memorable. She could,however, have been a wee bit fitter. All in all an excellent trip and a very good overview of the National Parks.
