Our second expedition into India’s Kishtwar National Park. This region is known for its world class climbing, pristine vistas, and interesting local culture. We go in the best season for a spectacular crossing of the glaciated Great Himalaya range with peak bagging enroute. Join us.

Leadership. Luke Smithwick will be guiding this trip.

Proving Ground. Come challenge yourself on a remote expedition style trek in the Himalayas.

Trust. Climbing at 6000+ meters is no place to be short on resources. We make the proper advance preparations to ensure that our team will be properly cared for, from airport to summit to airport.
