Melinda offers an in-depth cultural experience in Nepal with her Nepalese husband that's difficult to find anywhere else. She takes pride in having summitted Kilimanjaro six times. Along with years of experience leading remote and high-elevation outings, Melinda has training in CPR and is a wilderness first responder with 80 hours of first aid training. Come and share her love of the wilderness.
