Snowscapes Flagship Expeditions (SFEX)

gallery-14

Snowscapes flagship Expeditions are unique in nature . The route is decided based on extensive research about the place, their history, fauna and flora and accurate ecological & topographical information.

We believe success or failure of an individual’s expedition experience entirely is a battle of the mind. Information regarding appropriate gears and weather forecast for the planned trek period are put together in a professional and comprehensive fashion – in order to gear up the participants with the right mental frame and insights into the possible challenges and route behavior ahead.!

All of our flagship expeditions have been unique and pioneering in someway; be it the Interesting learning about the terrain or the unexpected scenery or the observation of some geological phenomenon or the exploration of entirely new routes or historical remains.  We also put diligent effort to document our experiences for the benefit of future travelers or scholars. Most of our documented experiences of these SFEX Expeditions can be found at our blogsite: http://snowscapes.blogspot.in , written and maintained by Mr. Ashutosh Mishra, one of the co-founders of Snowscapes. Many of these have been published in the Himalayan Journal (Annual Journal of the Himalayan Club) and The Indian Mountaineer (Mouthpiece Magazine of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation) as well as several national and local newspapers.

We welcome individuals from different walks of life who have an interest in Mountains and who want to be a part of such pioneering exploratory expeditions.If interested one can write to ashutosh@snowscapes.co.in expressing the interest with a brief about themselves, mountaineering experience if any and why do they want to be a part of this team.

These expeditions are currently open to people with minimum experience of at least one snow trek. A certification course like Basic Mountaineering Course from NIM or HMI would be an added advantage! We typically announce our flagship expeditions around the month of January and execute the expeditions in the first half of June every year.
