Nepal 2019 

Scout Peak (5718m) 

4th - 13th October 19

COURSE OVERVIEW

Scout Peak, a mushroom shaped mountain situated in the Langtang region offers a perfect alternative to Imja Tse or Island Peak in the Khumbu region. Seen from the south-west, Scout Peak almost looks like Ama Dablam which is situated in the Everest region. It is surrounded by majestic peaks such as Langtang II, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa and Shishapangma in Tibet.

Locally known as Urkema Peak, it was renamed Scout Peak (5,718m) in 2007. The peak was named after the father of the Scouts movement by the Nepal Government to mark the centenary celebration of the International Scouts Movement.

The trail to Scout peak is located off-the-beaten-track, away from the usual trekking crowd. The villages, dotting the trail, are pristine and untouched by modernity. But the villagers are quite poor. Most of them live below the poverty line and it is hoped that the economic condition of the villagers would improve once this trail gains popularity among trekkers. 

Our Nepal base for training will take you deep into the beautiful and remote setting of Langtang close to the Tibetan border where you will learn your skills among some magnificent and shapely. You will undergo training in Alpine skills and learn what it feels like to be part of an expedition whilst also being able to attempt your first Himalayan Peak. The course is ideal for regular walkers or climbers who want to broaden their experience under the guidance of our expert leaders and instructors. No technical skills are required but you will need a good level of fitness.
