Climb the Mountain

Embark on a thrilling expedition through the icy peaks of the Himalayas.

Venture inside a Tibetan-style stone structure at the foot of towering Mt. Everest and walk past the booking office of Himalayan Escapes — Tours and Expeditions. Wander past a small temple and a cozy general store before exploring a museum dedicated to the study of the Yeti, the mysterious snow monster rumoured to inhabit the Himalayas.

The Adventure Begins

Board a weather-beaten train and ascend a series of undulating hills overlooking a serene green forest. Climb a steep incline and navigate through a ceremonial stone tunnel before reaching the summit. Once at the "top of the world," prepare yourself as you gather speed and race into the dreaded mountain.

An Unexpected Encounter

Without warning, your train screeches to a halt: A broken and twisted track appears in front of you. Brace yourself as your train unpredictably begins to dash backward into the darkened mountain, furiously swooping up through 2 curling turns. Inside the windy passage, the shadowy figure of a growling creature can be seen on a cavern wall. It is the Yeti—the legend is real.

Hurtle 24 metres down the base of the cursed mountain, and swoop in and out of murky caves, travelling along jagged rocky ledges as you race to escape the dreaded monster before he catches up with you.

Will you make it back to civilization safely? Or will the Yeti claim another victim?
