Ladakh Wilderness Expedition 2015 + easy 6000Mts Peaks

This is the Land of Himalayan high altitude nomads and the rare Himalayan wild life The vast Central Asian grassland, birthplace of Genghis Khan and the Mongols, stretches almost continuously from the rolling steppes of Mongolia, into the high Tibetan plateau and then south into north-west India.  The Indian grassland is known as the Rupshu.  As in Mongolia and Tibet, it is the home of nomadic Buddhist herders: the Changpas, Kharnakpas and Korzokpas.  These nomads migrate between winter and summer pastures with their yaks, sheep and pashmina goats.  Their land is unremittingly high but varied: treeless plains, huge snow covered mountains, high passes, turquoise lakes and grassy valleys cut by clear, glacier-melt rivers.  Dr Chris Curry, Steve Amstutz and Geoff Bartram, veterans of hundreds of Himalayan treks and climbs wrote to Indian Himalayan Excursions after their 2010 Rupshu crossing: “(it was) as amazing a trek as we have done.  It is difficult to find such beauty, variety and remoteness with so few trekkers in the Himalaya these days.  The wildlife was exceptional: Tibetan blue sheep, marmot, pika, hare and wild ass (kyang) in large numbers as well as wolf, black-necked cranes, bar-headed geese and our first sighting of snow leopard. Made ascent to few easy 6000 Mts. Peaks, we trekked with Changpa horseman and spent wonderful times with their families.  It was a truly memorable month.”

French Alps, Mt Blanc (4,810 m)

This is considered to be the normal route up Mont Blanc, and ascends in two stages, but it should not be under-estimated. On the first day the climb takes you up to either the Tete Rousse or Gouter huts. Two hours separate these two huts, and if you are worried about acclimatizing the Tete Rousse is preferable, though it is a longer day on the summit climb. From the Aiguille du Gouter, the route ascends over the Dome du Gouter and then to the Vallot refuge. Here the route meets with the Grand Mulets route to the summit. The final ridge is one of the most spectacular snow ridges in the Alps.
