Peaceful lanscape in El Chalten National Park


You may think that Earths great mountain ranges are too far away or too extreme for you. The fact is, you don't need to be sponsored by Red Bull to experience the Himalaya, the Alps or the Andes. At Kandoo we specialise in high altitude treks and climbs and we have trips suitable for all levels of ability in every corner of the globe. Why not try something you never thought you could?

Mountains - they have this incredibly powerful effect on human beings and it seems to increase in line with the altitude. Descending from the summit of a 1000m peak in England, you can experience a rush of euphoria, as if the fresh mountain breeze and open views have activated part of your brain that was dormant before you walked up there. When you walk amidst the 8000m peaks of Nepal this feeling is intensified, the soaring summits glistening with ice and tumbling glaciers leave you feeling giddy, dumbstruck, even emotional. So what stops people from using this legal high? You might be worried about the affects of altitude, your personal fitness or visiting a developing country with dicey driving standards. At Kandoo Adventures we specialise in taking any weekend walker to new heights of adventure. Our trips are designed with plenty of time for your body to adjust to the altitude, there is no pressure to go fast, if anything, we will pressure you to go slower. We can take you on a gentle walk to the ruins of Machu Picchu or guide you to a 6000m summit. Our experienced local teams are always there to support you, whether you are negotiating a chaotic market place or a narrow summit ridge.
