Himalaya Expedition - Ruby Valley

Explore the world's highest mountain range via our newely opened route. An adventure in magical mountains, through forest and jungle back to civilisation.

The Himalayan expedition starts with a helicopter dropping at 4.000 meters. (13.200 feet)

You will be dropped in the middle of the wild at an unknown location on top of a mountain. You will need to find your way out towards civilization.

In order to move across the mountains and through the jungle, we will need to work together. We will escape oxygen deprivation, we will sleep in self-made shelters, we will start our fire with basic tools, and we will be purifying water for drinking and eating.

To find our way out through the mountains and the jungle, we will teach you how to navigate and safely move through this majestic environment. Once we reach destination X we can escape back to civilization.

Before and after our Himalayan expedition we will have all the comfort we need in our luxury hotel with a restaurant, wellness and astonishing views.

Before we embark on this journey, we make sure to give you all the tools and knowledge to get you ready to Get Out There:

  • Altitude chamber analysis and training plan

  • Material knowledge

  • Get-together with expedition members prior to the trip

  • Personal contact for all your questions

Trip overview

Day 1

We land in Kathmandu and relax in our comfortable accommodation. We take a tour through the city and get to know each other during dinner. 

Day 2

Together with a guide we dive into the history of Kathmandu and the Nepalese culture while enjoying the local cuisine along the way.
Last preparations for the expedition will be done at our hotel.

Day 3-5

In the morning, we are blown away by Nepal's most beautiful helicopter flight. We fly through the gigantic massifs and beautiful mountains of the Himalayas. Thus, we traverse the mountain range up to Ruby valley.

Once in Ruby valley, we are left on an idyllic mountain. At the very back of the valley, at +/- 4,000 metres. Now it's up to the group to find the inhabited world again. 

The first stage consists of steep slopes, jungle, a mountain river, ... but above all, no civilisation, no trails. Adventure pure and simple. Imagine a forest that has never been cut down, never been changed by man, ... we go on an adventure in a real primeval forest.

Day 5-8

On day 5, we arrive at a very remote local village at the back of the valley. From here follows a 4-day solid and challenging trek up to the first motorised roads. This cultural exploration on trails takes place among the locals. We thus get a very intense taste of Nepali culture.

We squeeze the last kilometres out of our legs before returning to luxury. Because we finish in style. 4x4 all-terrain vehicles are waiting for us to drive smoothly through the last few kilometres of rough terrain.
In the evening, we finish in Pokhara, where we can celebrate our escape.

Day 9

In Pokhara, we find a unique abode, accessible only by boat. The perfect location to unwind. From this luxury stay, there are plenty of activities and ways to explore the city. Or a day hanging out by the pool is also possible.

Day 10

On the last day, we fly back to Kathmandu on a domestic flight. This will put us back in the capital in 30 minutes. Here we finish with a sumptuous dinner in the evening to wind down.

Day 11

We say goodbye to Nepal and fly back home.
