High risk

We’ll support and lead any high-risk, high-altitude activity, anywhere in the world. Whether it’s for a world-class publicity exercise, scientific research, high altitude rescue, product testing or just about anything else. If it’s in the mountains, we’ll get it done.

When an individual, organisation or brand wants to do something completely novel in these remote and hostile environments, Nimsdai can handle the planning, leadership and execution. These complex objectives naturally present more challenges beyond the typical mountaineering expedition. This is where we thrive.

Our founder Nims was subject matter expert for extreme cold-weather warfare within the mountain cell of the SBS, here he developed the mindset to quickly evaluate situations to maintain the welfare of others balanced with delivering on the ultimate objective.

Rescue missions

Over the years Nims’ ability to perform in the mountains, together with his expedition leadership skills and ‘leave no man behind’ mentality, has given rise to being regularly called upon for many selfless rescue missions high in the death zone.

We can assemble trusted teams and networks anywhere in the world. In the Himalayas particularly, we have earned the respect and loyalty of arguably the world’s best Sherpas and wider supporting partners. This goes a long way in ensuring the success of our projects and missions.

Nimsdai expeditions can deliver the following services:

Once we have a full understanding of your objectives, we’ll work collaboratively on defining locations, then present a full project proposal for expedition logistics, resource requirements and related costs.

Why choose


Nims (leader on all expeditions) is a multi-world record breaking mountaineer, the fastest to summit all 14 8000m peaks. He has led 20 x 8000m expeditions with a 100% success rate, in both reaching the summit and more importantly bringing everyone home safely. Combining this with his UK Special Forces and Ghurkha heritage, he is the perfect bridge between Western and Nepalese cultures, providing an invaluable local Himalayan infrastructure and a totally unique skillset fine-tuned for success in the mountains. This is reinforced with a world class team of Sherpas hand-picked by himself through a process similar to the rigorous demands of special forces selection, all operating together with shared principles and code of conduct.

Safety through

If it’s controllable we control it, this is key to attain and maintain our industry leading strategy for success and safety. We maximise our options, agility and responsiveness by running totally self-sufficient expeditions, not relying on any other teams on the mountain to achieve our objectives. We are capable of setting up our own fixed lines (with a proven track record on all 8000m peaks) and have backups to cover all scenarios, from secondary oxygen supplies through to the ability and experience to operate our own rescue missions if the situation arises.

& premium

From initial enquiry our approach whether on the mountain or during the planning phase is completely tailored to a client’s goals, abilities and safety. This ensures the journey to your goal is adapted to you and not for those that have been before. This also extends beyond the climb, we always operate our expeditions with premium facilities, equipment and infrastructures, but in addition, we can accommodate the demands of any global lifestyle from highly connected office facilities and added levels of comfort and luxury.
