230 have taken up the alpine hiking bootcamp. 30 students completed.

This free online course consolidates my extensive alpine hiking experience exploring more than 300 high passes across the Western Himalayas. 50+ modules will familiarize you with important concepts to become an independent explorer. Knowledge is presented through compact theory and elaborate hands-on assignments to easily assimilate concepts. The course can be taken up from anywhere, anytime. Submitted assignments are periodically reviewed by myself and feedback provided. Students completing the course will receive a certificate of completion.
