Our experienced, certified guides have been guiding this trip for over 25 years and while they are the utmost professional mountaineers they can still fill you with regaling stories of the legend of Popocateptl and Iztaccihuatl, the Aztec star-crossed lovers that were turned into volcanoes.
Our team is made up of present and former Mexico Alpine Search & Rescue members. We are bilingual and this trip is led by our US based guide that is native to this volcanic region. The travel professionals in our home office take great care to provide a unique authentic experience that stands out from all the others and we're sure that you will cherish it forever.
We'd love to hear from you, please reach out if you have any questions or would like to request a custom date for your trip.

YSG is fortunate to have Sherpa partners and guides both stateside and in Khumbu with over 30 years of experience guiding this trek in Nepal. This uniquely talented team has built this trip to be different from any others and to bring something special to the experience that will leave trekkers and climbers not only with memories of the trek of a lifetime but with a better sense of Nepal's rich culture, friendly people and the majestic beauty of the Khumbu region.
We will spend two days completely off the beaten path in our guide's home village of Sengma, have dinner with his family and experience the local way of daily Sherpa life.
Be part of a fun trek but also an exploratory journey to comprehend responsible tourism to protect the fragile eco-system for the people of Khumbu as we embark upon our philanthropic agenda to provide safe drinking water to the region.
YSG works with guides and tours globally. Watch for our Volunteer Vacations and be part of global solutions.
