Our aim is to provide up to date and comprehensive information on trekking and climbing adventures. In doing so we hope to promote responsible tourism that conserves the cultural heritage and natural environment.

There are of course obvious running costs for this website which we try to cover through the use of advertising and affiliates. For the purposes of full disclosure and transparency, here is an overview on the types of commercial relationships we have on our website.


If you see an advert on the website it will be clearly marked as either ‘sponsored’ or have the recognisable Google Adsense sign.
