Don’t take our word for it – here’s what everyone says:

I love SUTD Mountaineering Club because it gives me such a wholesome experience in my uni life, something I would not get anywhere else. With Mountaineering Club, my clubmates and I have experienced all elements of nature – land, mud, sand, rock, snow, ice. Not only that, we got to experience everything from camping, to rock climbing, ice climbing, trekking and hiking.
I like that it’s a tight-knitted group of us and there is always something for everyone to try.

Experiencing all these with my university friends and forging lifelong memories is something I would not trade for anything else. It’s really a once in a life experience and I’m glad I’ve joined this club.

Being in SUTD Mountaineering has been nothing short of amazing. We have physical trainings, workshops and the occasional climbing trip — all of which is done together as a group.

You don’t have to worry about the stress of not doing well at competitions or whatsoever, Mountaineering is a fun time with friends as you get fit, learn and make new memories together. What I appreciate the most is that the club gives us the opportunity to go on such fun trips easily. You don’t have to be an expert climber looking to climb Mount Everest one day; you can just be someone looking for some adventure outside of Singapore or looking to take a break during recess week. Simply join us during training and enjoy the fruits of your labour as you watch the sunrise at the top of the hill you just climbed.

SUTD Mountaineering has brought me great opportunities and a way of connecting with friends from different pillars to the same interest. Not only it serves as a great way to de-stress by exercising with friends but also allows you to go for once in a lifetime opportunity trips. Mountaineering has also taught me to be disciplined and equipped me with the skills to work together as a team as teamwork is extremely important when scaling a mountain.

My journey in SUTD Mountaineering has taken me around the world to places that I would haver never imagined. It provided me a platform to push my boundaries and develop as an all rounded person. The training programs that are in place at SUTD mountaineering has helped to challenge myself physically and mentally. I have also been able to meet
like minded people who encourage each other during trainings and expeditions.I have been able to forge friendships with them that would last a lifetime.

The hardcore training all of us go through to build up our physical endurance, also allowed all of us to gel together.

It combines a lot of elements like climbing techniques, survival techniques, trekking, personal management and physical fitness; interdependent skills that build our repertoire as budding mountaineers.

Climbing with friends is the best thing. When the treks are much more difficult, we can depend on each other.
