Mountaineering.

This chapter describes recent trends in mountaineering adventure tourism and presents case studies from around the world. For each continent or region (Andes, Antarctica, Central Asia, Europe, Himalayas, New Zealand, North America, and Great Britain), information on mountaineering adventure tour providers is tabulated in the following format: country (refers to the country of origin or home base of the company); instruction (indicates whether or not they offer tuition in climbing techniques through mountaineering instruction schools); guiding (indicates whether or not they offer guided mountaineering trips); expeditions (indicates the level of support they provide to and from the mountain, including base-camp support); domestic and international (refer to the destinations of the trips offered); certification (refers to types of qualification possessed by individual guides); and environment (refers to environmental principles or practices described in company web sites). The popularity and safety of mountaineering adventure tourism are also discussed. Two detailed case studies from France and Nepal are presented, outlining information on the place, operator, activity, equipment, accommodation, statistics, access, community, experience, environment, safety and marketing.
