Partner Details: I am looking for climbing partner(s) who would like to climb in the Indian Himalayas - 6,316 meters (20,720'), nothing very technical but snow-climbing experience is needed. I am planning to go March 30, 2018, return on May 1, 2018. I plan to go economically with all inclusive costs about $2000. In light of the travel warnings by the State Dept. for Pakistan some of you who were planning to go there might want to consider the Indian Himalayas.

A Few Words: Favorite Quotes :

"He who walks travels fastest"

"A summit isn’t just a place on a mountain. A summit exists in our own hearts and minds. A summit is a symbol that with the force of our will, we can transform our lives into whatever we choose them to be."
-- Erik Weihenmayer
(blind Everest summiteer)

"who climbs highest, sees farthest"
-- Mark Hackney

Why do people climb mountains?
"People climb mountains because they are the ultimate expression of God's creation. They reveal His soul, character and power. We feel closer to Him and it puts things in perspective. It refreshes our soul. People climb mountains to challenge themselves and test their character. It provides opportunity to grow as persons."
- Mark Hackney
"The man who goes alone can start today, but he who travels with another must wait till the other is ready." --Henry David Thoreau
