What is Sightseeing program?

What is the "Sightseeing program" in the concept of the MCS AlexClimb Mountaineering Rock Climbing School

Like it? Share please!

To understand our response to this question, it is necessary first of all to understand that organization of the excursion programs is not the basic profile of our activity. All of our programs are somehow related to the sports and active vacation, and that small set of the programs that we have in the category of excursion - that is an exception to the rule - because even the most serious climbing programs need quality blocks with excursions and sightseeing opportunities which are located close to the climbing area or rockclimbing sectors. This is how to our collection came the small number of independent programs, historically and geographically associated with mountains and mountaineering, while not being the pure climbing programs. As an example - visiting Genoa and Venice - a great addition to any mountain climbing program in the Alps. Excursion to Machu Picchu and a jeep tour to Salar de Uyuni - interesting programs, easy to combine with any mountaineering blocks in the mountains of Peru and Bolivia. Game safari in Kenya or Tanzania, excursions in Zanzibar after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru and three day jeep trip to Sahara after climbing Toubkal.

Generally, if you to pass your vacations diversely, excitingly and actively - this is definitely the program for you!

In our sightseeing programs, we try to gather all which is the best and really deserves attention. We do not offer standard popular routes to the well-known and completely trampled attractions which bring crowds of tourists swelling of beer for whom it does not matter what to do if there is a stall with alcohol and a kiosk with souvenirs at hand.

Sightseeing programs of MCS AlexClimb Mountaineering School - is an attempt to make a real adventure from the sightseeing excursion, to distinguish among standard "tourist attractions" the objects really valuable and worthy of attention and combine into one program a variety of activities, while maintaining a comfortable and exciting format of the program.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
