About the WILD YAK Team

The success of the Trip depends on both the personal condition of each participant and the experience of our Team. WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS’ team has been carefully selected according to its expertise in the particular environment and personal aptitudes.

The WILD YAK Team is thus well-trained, courteous and helpful. It consists of dynamic licensed guides with an outstanding climbing experience in trekking and mountaineering with ascents of some of the world’s highest mountains such as Mount Everest, K2, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu, Cho-Oyu, Shishapangma, Gasherbrum I & II, Nanga Parbat and Ama Dablam.

“Teamwork begins with building trust. And the only way to do that is to overcome our need for invulnerability.”

– Patrick Lencioni

We believe that the best way to explore the landscape and culture during your journey is to be guided by the local people but in your respective language. Our trekking and expedition Guides are fluently speaking numerous languages such as English, French, German, Italian and Chinese. “It is always funny to hear local jokes in your language told by a local guide.”

WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS is proud to support our local Himalayan WILD YAK Team by providing them with a fair salary, encouraging them to take mountaineering workshops, wilderness first aid training, environmental preservation courses, garbage management, team leadership, and language refreshers on a regular basis.
