To promote mountain climbing and to encourage people to challenge themselves physically and mentally, we have initiated and introduced a few annual mountain climbing challenges into our calendar. These mountain climbing challenges are accompanied by an Ace Adventure Expeditions’ team leader.
These are the mountain climbing challenges we have initiated. We’re not stopping with these few and will continue to introduce new challenges from time to time:
International Women’s Day (IWD) Challenge
IWD Challenge celebrates International Women’s Day by bringing women together to climb a mountain. The objectives are to encourage women to challenge themselves mentally and physically and to raise fund and awareness for a women’s cause.
IWD Mt Kilimanjaro, 5895m(Northern Circuit): 25 Feb – 10 Mar 2016
Everest Base Camp Trek, 5355m: 13 – 30 Mar 2016
Twin Peaks Challenge
It is possible to scale 2 peaks or multi-peaks at one go in some destinations given adequate time and preparation. The Twin Peaks Challenge put together scaling 2 peaks in one itinerary. These twin peaks are picked where the ground logistic can be easily arranged and the duration of the entire trip does not stretch too long.
Mt. Siguniang, 1st Peak, 5038m and 2nd Peak, 5276m: 20 – 30 Oct 2016
Jade Mountain, 3952m & Snow Mountain, 3886m: 27 Nov – 4 Dec 2016
Beyond 5000ers Challenge
Beyond 5000m, the air becomes thin and cold; the terrain becomes bare and expose. Movements are slower and take a lot more effort. Every step can be at a moon walk pace. Yet, many have trekked/climbed beyond 5000m. Our Beyond 5000ers Challenge is suitable for those who have not trekked beyond 5000m but have done some multi-days mountain trekking. The peaks chosen does not require ice & snow skills. They are a superb first 5000m peak. The biggest challenge of climbing these peaks is the high altitude.
Mt Damavand, 5612m: 28 May – 6 Jun 2016
Ice & Snow Peak Challenge
Ice and snow peaks that require the use use of crampons, ice axe, rope up or fixed rope put a greater demand on fitness and skills. Oure Ice & Snow Peak Challenge is suitable for those who have experience in multi-days high altitude treks and want to progress to ice & snow peak climbing.
Elburs North, 5642m: 28 Jul – 8 Aug 2016
Stok Kangri, 6153m / Dates : 7 – 20 Aug 2016
Island Peak, 6189m / Dates : 30 Oct – 20 Nov 2016
Mera Peak, 6476m / Dates 13 Nov – 4 Dec 2016
Hope to see you on one of our Mountain Climbing Challenges!
