Your safety is extremely serious at Mountaineers Expeditions and is an essential part of all of our systems from the training programs we run. It is important for you to give us your proper information before you trek and we will keep performing check-up on a daily basis during your climb.

Professional Mountain
Climbing Guides


Our guides and crews are specifically trained and instructed to ensure, where ever possible, that our guests can walk off the mountain, unaided, themselves. They are also trained extensively on monitoring systems and also management of AMS (acute mountain sickness), and more advanced forms of mountain sickness such as HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema).

They are all Wilderness First Responders and Advanced First Aid Training and professionally certified CPR with resuscitation dummies to environment with specific flora and fauna training. They are best in identification and treatment of them.
