Trekking and Climbing
Gane and Marshall is an experienced provider of mountain treks and climbs worldwide. We began in 1991 as an outfit specialising in Kilimanjaro climbs, and trekking and climbing holidays have remained a central part of what we do ever since.
We offer a range of treks and climbs catering to all abilities, from short, easy walking holidays designed for novice trekkers, to tough, fully-supported high altitude mountain climbs for more experienced climbers. See below for an outline of the trips we offer.
Most of our trips are offered as private, tailor-made tours. However we do offer a number of fixed-date small group trekking holidays each year. These are a great option for lone travellers wishing to meet and trek with others. See our group departures pages for more information.
All Gane and Marshall trekking holidays are overseen by Jeremy Gane. Jeremy has over 20 years experience in organising climbing and trekking holidays, and can help you plan the perfect trip from the ground up. Contact Jeremy@ganeandmarshall.com today to discuss your travel plans.

Example itineraries for Trekking and Climbing
Rongai Seven Days Kilimanjaro Climb via Second Cave and Mawenzi Tarn, going for Uhuru Peak through Gilmans Point and descending on the Marangu Route.
The programme is our most popular Mt. Kenya departure. It packs in Hells Gate and Longonot overlooking the Rift Valley Lakes, but still leaves time for acclimatisation and a chance to scramble to the remote outposts of Terere and Sendeo before trekking to Point Lenana on the magnificent Mt.Kenya.
Trek through the Sagarmatha National Park to the base camp of the world's highest mountain, Everest, in this most popular of Nepal trekking itineraries. You will begin your journey in Kathmandu, flying to Lukla and then journeying along the Khumbu trail, passing Tok Tok, Namche Bazaar, and Dingboche before reaching your goal at Everest Base Camp. Those looking for an extra challenge have the option to take on Kala Patthar.
Trek to Margherita Peak, the summit of Mt Stanley and Africa's third highest point, in this 8 Day Trek
A full Simien Mountains trek to remote parts of the Ethiopian Highlands. This Ethiopia trekking tour includes as standard some aspects of the Historic Route: Gondar, Lalibela and Addis. You may extend the trip to add more elements, for instance Axum, the Rift Valley Lakes, Omo Valley, or Bale Mountains.
Ascend Aconcagua, America’s highest mountain, via the lesser-travelled Vacas Valley route, in this 18-day itinerary designed to maximise acclimatisation time.
Our Nepal comfort treks are a luxury lodge-based alternative to traditional camping treks. These are mostly gentle trekking programs in which you are accommodated in comfortable, heated lodges and en-suite guesthouses. For the leisurely traveller who is looking to explore the beauty of the Nepali Himalayas but is put off by the Spartan conditions associated with traditional camping-based treks, our comfort treks provide the ideal alternative.
