Our Himalayas Challenge Groups come with a qualified UK Leader with deep experience and passion for what they do - offering full support and daily briefings. They also include a UK Medic with expedition medicine experience. You may find a cheaper Himalayas trek elsewhere, but is it worth risking trekking to 6,000m without proper support? Every Challenge group will have a full expedition medical kit, oxygen cylinder (at altitude), & daily health monitoring.
