TESTIMONIALS

...new terrain every day, amazing views and expert tuition. I seriously cannot recommend this company enough; from beginner to expert the guys at MV will have you hitting bigger steeper terrain the right way and with confidence. But don’t take my word for it, come and experience it for yourself and join me on my 4th tour in 2019.

EDDIE / MYOKO SNOW PROGRESSION VENTURE GUEST

Truly the most adventurous and amazing time of my life. The scenery, atmosphere, organisation and treking mates second to none. The biggest problem now is what will I do next! There has to be more out there, I will be looking forward to what Zac and Mountain Ventures can suggest? Annapurna?
