  • Alpine Glow on Mt Rainer

    I joined Miyar Adventures for a 4 day backpacking trip at Mt. Rainier. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Sandeep is a very knowledgeable guide that is willing to go the extra mile in order to make sure everyone in the group has a good time. I'm looking forward to joining them for another adventure in the future!

  • Three climbers in front of cloud on Mt Baker

    Went on a 4-day backpacking trip to Mount Rainier with Miyar Advantures and Sandeep.  It was a great experience! Sandeep was a great guide who was not only knowledgeable and helpful but genuinely fun to be around.  The trip has sparked my interest in further challenges and adventures, and I think it is safe to say that Miyar Adventures is the first place I will look for my next big one!

  • Glaciers on Mt Rainer

    Sandeep and all of his guides are very personable, knowledgeable, safety conscious and a WHOLE lot of FUN to climb with! I am a beginning climber/backpacker and I enjoyed climbing/Backpacking Rainier with Miyar Adventures. They prepared me well for a successful experience. In fact, I am looking forward to climbing Kilimanjaro with Miyar in December!
