MNGS was originally incorporated as Point South in the USA (1981), Guides de Point Sud in Europe (1989) and MatterhornNepal-GuideSource Treks & Expeditions (2001) in Europe and Nepal. For more than three decades we have guided individuals, groups, families and corporate professionals in Europe and Asia on Himalayan high altitude mountaineering expeditions, treks in Europe and Asia, rock and ice climbs, training sessions and outdoor activities of all types and levels. We currently guide climbs of dozens of 4000m peaks in Europe, and the Himalayan peaks of Everest, Cho Oyu, Manaslu, Makalu, Broad Peak, Baruntse, Shishipangma, Ama Dablam and others, while also offering 18 trekking peaks like Mera Peak (highest non-technical trekking peak in the world), Lobuche East and Island Peak for less experienced and non-technical mountaineers. We guide +25 various treks in Nepal, Tibet, India and Bhutan, visiting mountain regions and cultural points of interest.
Our climbing instruction, avalanche courses, snowshoeing outings, wildlife observation hikes, training programmes, schools and business safety presentations, horse and rafting trips provide a varied choice of professionally guided experiences, for all levels of fitness and length. We serve individuals, groups, clubs, schools and corporate clients with special programmes, informative presentations and full-service off-site meetings designed to meet specific needs. Our Managing Directors, RJ Fleming and Ang Kami Sherpa, welcome inquiries about instruction, methodology, special needs, custom outings and scheduling. The following pages offer an overview of our programmes, but most activities, guiding and instruction is custom tailored to our clients’ interests and needs.
Our most important commitment: Our years of outdoor adventure have focused our appreciation and dedication on Sherpa children in need. To do this we established Education for Orphans of Nepal charity, to raise money to support the education of as many Nepalese orphans as possible. Currently the EON Charity fully supports the living and education of +37 orphan children, and that number will continue to grow with each passing year. It is our goal to make others aware that there are nearly 1’000’000 orphan children in Nepal, and how an education can expand their possibilities for a bright future. Please read about EON and these deserving children at: www.eoncharity.org. We hope our clients will recognize this important opportunity and join our family of Patrons and Supporters to help these children gain an education.
