MNGS was originally incorporated as Point South in the US in 1981, Guides de Point Sud in Europe in 1989 and MatterhornNepal in 2001 in 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 regularly guide +25 various treks in Nepal, Tibet, India and Bhutan from one to several weeks in length, visiting mountainous regions and cultural points of interest.
Our climbing instruction, avalanche courses, snowshoeing outings, wildlife observation hikes, training programmes, safety presentations, horse and rafting trips provide a varied choice of professionally guided experiences, for all levels of fitness and trip length. We serve individuals, groups, clubs, schools and corporate clients with special programmes, informative presentations and full-service off-site meetings designed to meet each client’s specific needs. We welcome all inquiries regarding instruction details, methodology, special needs, custom outings and scheduling arrangements. 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 the EON Charity, Education for Orphans of Nepal, 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 15 orphan children, and we hope that this number can continue to grow with each passing year as more people become aware of this need. It is our goal to do what we can to make others aware of the fact that there are nearly 1’000’000 orphan children in Nepal, and how an education can open their possibilities to a brighter 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 Patrons and Supporters to help these children gain an education.
