Trekking holidays or walking holidays vary vastly from simple relaxing treks from tea house to tea house like on an Everest base camp trek or an Annapurna trek to treks in a more demanding climate such as the Saharah for desert trekking. Some people go trekking for the challenge. Examples of trekking peaks include Aconcagua, Island peak, Mera peak, ojos del salado and treks to Kilimanjaro. All of these peaks despite their lack of technicality are all high altitude peaks. So precautions need to be taken before attempting them. This involves using the right equipment, making sure your fit enough and giving yourself extra time. A good guiding company should help you with preparations.
British explorer Philip de-Beger who is probably best know for his high altitude exploits having led several expeditions to 8,000m peaks in the Himalayas and the karakoram. His other feats include establishing new extreme climbing routes in England, Scotland, Kenya, Ethiopia, Egypt, the Emirates and Oman. This year he was awarded grants from the mount Everest fund and Shipton Tillman fund for a daring expedition to climb an unclimbed peak high in the karakoram.
He has also had success in the Arctic. In 2009 as part of a small team Philip skied 300 miles unsupported in across frozen sea ice in order to link the two most northern Inuit communities in the Canadian Arctic by ski. He arrived with a day to spare despite having to deal with open water and polar bears.
In February 2012 Philip will be leading an expedition to climb Ojos Del Salado. Ojos is the world highest volcano at 6,892m. This also makes it the highest mountain in Chile and one of the “second seven summits”. The mountain is a serious undertaking. There are only two spaces on the expedition remaining. Potential candidates will need a good level of fitness and drive. The final section before the summit involves a short 30m rock climb so experience of scrambling or basic climbing experience would be advantageous.
