Magara Primary School Project

I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed the recent trip to the Magara secondary school project in Tanzania and how wonderful the World Expeditions staff were. Our guide was a fantastic source of information and really helped us a great deal but also allowed us a lot of freedom to work things out for ourselves. The group was great and we hope to keep in contact as much as possible. The staff at the secondary school and the students were memorable and I wish them all the best and also to the people who attend the project next year.

Khan Tengri Expedition

World Expeditions are excited to announce Simon Yates will be leading our 2017 Khan Tengri expedition! With 4 previous summits of Khan Tengri, Simon is undoubtedly one of the world's leading western guides on this incredible mountain. At 7010m (22,999ft) the spectacular ice pyramid of Khan Tengri is the second highest mountain in the Tian Shan range and lies on the border between Kazakhstan & Kyrgyzstan. After flying to our base camp at 4000m on the North Inylchek Glacier, we have ample time to acclimatise and fine-tune our skills. From base camp we will climb the moderately technical and steep north ridge leading to the snow covered dome of Chapayev Peak (6100m). Two camps will be placed on this ridge at 4800m and 5500m. A third camp, using either snow caves or tents, will be established on the saddle between Chapayev Peak and Khan Tengri at 6000m and from here we will follow the west ridge/face to the summit. High altitude porters will be used to carry group gear, allowing you to focus on the climb and save your energy for summit day. Technical and exposed sections of the climb are climbed using fixed ropes, and our expert leaders will assist you in achieving your goal of reaching the summit of this exceptional mountain.
