Since beginning our operations over twenty-four years ago, it has always been a challenge to navigate through the complex and ever-changing political, social, and environmental aspects inherent in running a climbing and trekking operation in the Himalayas. The pay-off nonetheless has always been worth it - to our clients, to our Sherpa's and their families, and to us. And as much as last year's tragic events highlighted both the need for better safety regulations and a reassessment of the business which climbing Everest has become, our present concerns and consequent conclusions come from a much larger set of worrying circumstances. The local government's fickle posturing and vague statements regarding possible rule changes for mountaineering permits, the drastic alterations to the weather both traditional ENSO and ENSO Modoki have and will continue to cause, the growing list of socio-political events which has a cumulative effect of compromising regional security, present us with only one responsible and rational course of action. We at Peak Freaks are cancelling our commercial Everest 2015 summit climb. As clear as this decision has become it is still far from an easy one for us to have come to. The financial impact on our partners, our Sherpa's, will be severe. The patience and loyalty of our clients will be taxed. Even so, our love for the region and what we do remains intact. Our determination to continue expeditions and our commitment to those who welcomed us to the Himalayas almost a quarter century ago and who continue to work by our side has inspired us. It has inspired us to widen our offerings. To provide adventures free from thorny politics, crumbling glaciers, and looming ice-falls. After all, the majesty of the Himalayas should never be locked away. So on the eve of our sad Everest news we hope solace can be found knowing that Peak Freaks will not close its doors. Instead it will open paths for adventurers to climb other challenging and awe-inspiring peaks, to take cultural tours through the highest lands of Nepal and Tibet, and to experience unconditionally this magical kingdom we now call our second home.

EVEREST TRAINING:   TRIPLE CROWN

Staying Safe in the Himalayas! 

Participants who take our Everest training climb have proven time and time again to be more successful on Everest. 

(Island Peak 6145m, Pokalde 5806m, Lobuche East 6119m)

We feel our Everest Training climbs are the best there is. After taking this course one should feel mentally prepared and experience "WISE" for high altitude or any other mountaineering expedition or climb. For aspiring Everest climbers this serves as an excellent opportunity to meet your leader and Sherpas while focusing on the world's largest mountaineering objective "Mt. Everest" which will be standing directly in front of you the entire time. Visualization IS a powerful tool!  It's also good for anyone wanting a place to start to learn what it takes to climb mountains and all while exploring the beautiful Himalayas and her people.

On Everest, when your body is no longer working for you like it used to, it is your mind that will get you there and back down again safely. Participants who learn on Himalayan peaks have proven to be more successful on Everest. This year 2012' all three climbers who took this program in 2011' summited in 2012'.
