Mountain Peak Identification Required, Northern India?

Returning from Bangkok for our family summer holiday, we flew over Northern India and took this picture of a mountain peak through the window. In my ignorance I thought I could just ask cabin staff,...... who had no idea which mountain it was. It would usually not matter, but we happened to use this particular photo to finish our photobook of the whole trip and would really like to find which mountain it is. I'm ...

Hiking in Europe in November

hi there
I wanted to go hiking somewhere in Europe at the end of November. I was wondering if there' s any spot in Europe where you have quite stable, sunny weather at this time.
I'd like to go for around 4 days, so a weekend trip. I live in London, so have good flight connections to most of the places.
I was thinking about the island of Madeira, but I am not sure about ...

Hollental Route up Zugspitze end of October?

Hello all,

A friend and I are travelling to Garmisch on the 24th of this month and where hoping to head up the Zugspitze via the Hollental route but from what I can gather this may not be possible. We both have basic mountaineering skills and good kit, we're happy to camp out as I know the huts will be closed. I've been keeping an eye on the weather forecast but I'm not sure how ...

Mt Stanley, Uganda

Just booked flights to Uganda, and looking to get up Mt. Stanley while I'm there. Wondering if anyone has any recent info on the tour operators, Rwenzori Mountaineering Services (RMS) and the central circuit vs. Rwenzori Trekking Services (RTS) on the Kilembe route? As a guide is required, I've gotta pick one. RMS has had some pretty bad reviews but none I'm seeing that are very recent, so maybe they've improved. RTS is quite a ...

Cerro Chirripó - Reservations

Has anyone recently went through the reservation process to climb Cerro Chirripó? I know it can be a nightmare but I'm getting some conflicting info. I also hear there is an in-country agency now that will get everything in place for a fee of course. I don't want to be stuck for 3 days waiting to get a permit. We'll have 12 days in Costa Rica the end of Dec. Thanks.

Fuel Situation in Nepal

I've just been informed that my flight from Guangzhou to Kathmandu for next week has been canceled. All flights on China Southern Airlines have been canceled through the end of next week due to fuel shortages. My travel agent cannot find any other available flights. Does anybody in Nepal know what the situation there is? Has anybody heard from other international airlines that are canceling flights? What about fuel for autos in country? Any information ...

Intermediate alpine trip in October

Hi all, first time poster here.

I'll be in Germany in October, and I'd like to do a bit of mountaineering with a friend.

We both have a bit of experience with mountains around PD and high altitude. Me - Huayna Potosí and Kazbek; him - Pisco, Ishinca, Urus. So we'd like to try to push the technical difficulty a bit (more vertical), but take out the high-altitude and multi-day aspect. Something where we can ...

Partner desired for Cordillera Blanca, until Sept. 18th

Greetings, I'm in Huaraz now. My friend & climbing partner had the great misfortune of breaking his ankle on a climb. Fortunately, he made it down the mountain all right (& up, too!!!!). I leave Peru (from Lima, so I need to take a bus from Huaraz) on the 20th. Until then, I'd love to get up another mountain or 2 (the reason I came down here).

I have experience at altitude (I've climbed all ...
