KE Adventure Travel


KE stands for Karakoram Experience—a nod to the company's origins as a guide service for K2 mountaineers in the Karakoram Range—and it now offers 300-plus mountain treks worldwide. Many wend through iconic ranges (the Himalaya, the Alps), but a few enter surprising locales like Cuba and the island of Reunion (east of Madagascar). Don't worry, none are as tough as K2.
