The 3 Week Mountain Leadership Course begins in Nepal’s Royal Beach Camp-home of entertaining activities like rafting, kayaking and canyoneering that will be a part of this life-changing journey!

But you’ll climb to many more heights than just Nepal’s Peaks…

The Mountain Leadership Course is full of knowledge, entertainment, team-building, and leadership-building skills!

Experience training at peaks close to the base-camp that extend to 2100 meters. Then, give back to Nepal’s Beautiful Environment by participating in Sustainability Work on a tree plantation that will compensate for air travel and transportation during the trip!

As you travel to different Mountains of Nepal, you’ll be compiling a list of Mountain Tasks and descriptions for presentation to the group at the end of the Mountain Leadership Course so that you can all share in each other’s journeys and leadership lessons learned amongst the slopes!

Your first Trek takes place in grandiose Pokhara! Enjoy a Day Trek involving many stairs to get ready for the journey over the Annapurna Mountain Range the next day that leads to the top of Poon Hill at 3500 meters!

To round out Week 2 of the Mountain Leadership Course, hike along the mountain ridges to the Rhododendron Forest for the perfect view of the rare Machhapuchere Mountain (one of the most unique peaks in the world).

Week 3 of the Mountain Leadership Course begins from the Annapurna Base Camp (4500 meters above sea level) with a dip in the hot springs before two more days of trekking the wondrous mountain range.

The final days of the Mountain Leadership Course back at the Royal Beach Camp involve presenting your Mountain Tasks to the team and then a final day shopping extravaganza in Kathmandu!

The Mountain Leadership Course is full of daily activities that will challenge you, help you grow in mind, body, and spirit, and become more in tune with your surroundings and the parts of your personality that will grow to be a leader amongst your peers!
