EST Adventure

No achievement in life, no peak climbed and no journey taken can be fully appreciated if there is no one to share it with. It is for this very reason that EST Adventure was established – to share with you that joy and wonder of exploration and adventure.

EST Adventure

EST Adventure is one man’s dream come true. No achievement in life, no peak climbed and no journey to the remotest part of the world can be fully appreciated if there is no friend with you to share the joy. It is for this very reason that EST was established – to share with you the wide experience gained by a small group of people in expeditions, explorations and adventures over the past fifteen years. We believe that deep down in every one of us lies a little explorer, who, if given proper support, could climb even the highest peaks of the world. It only takes a little persistence to regain lost confidence and everything is possible. The people who have joined us and achieved their dreams, the dreams they could not even say loudly before are undeniable proof. Under our guidance over 250 mountaineers have successfully climbed the peaks over 6000m high, and over 25 of them have had opportunity to view the world from summits over 8000 m high, the youngest of them was 18 years of age when he reached the top of Aconcagua (6962 m), while the oldest celebrated his 70th birthday on the same peak. We shall not forget to mention those to whom objectives and major achievements do not represent the essence of their efforts, but it is the path they follow and the vastness they explore that they cherish. With them, we have traveled around areas seen by only a very few, met people whose simplicity of life and purity of soul changed our views of the world. Our basic principle is “unus pro omnibus et omnes pro uno” – one for all and all for one, because we believe that good team spirit creates an atmosphere where everyone can express their value. We can thank this approach for the fact that our expeditions, treks and adventures represent true schools, where we all learn something new.

Climbing to the top of a mountain is not just about testing your abilities; the experience that slowly penetrates your mind during the expedition, continuous questioning of yourself, insight into and discovering of your own inner self. It is a permanent process of self-knowledge in communication with Nature, and with other people in extreme conditions of life. It is also the communication with the people you meet there that will make you reconsider some of your own beliefs and prejudices. The encounter with another culture and way of life helps us gain a better perception of ourselves when we return home. What is important is not whether their or our views are right, but the broader viewing angle we gain by considering their points of view, either inward or outward.

Balkan countries have many hidden corners and spectacular scenery which you probably have not had the opportunity to see. Come and take a walk with us across fantastic landscape, climb a mountain and enjoy incredible and breathtaking view or join us for a lunch in a local village and taste the best traditional Balkan specialties and traditional cuisine.

If you are not enthusiastic about extreme sports, dangerous climbs, if you are not keen on rush of adrenalin experienced during expeditions, but you wish to walk and explore the world, our trekking adventures are the real thing for you. Our adventures are best suited for those to whom objectives and major achievements do not represent the essence of their efforts, but it is the path they follow and the vastness they explore that they cherish.

One of the qualities that is inherent in us as human beings is our curiosity. But fortunately our lives are too short and there is not enough time for us to visit all the hidden places of this beautiful planet of ours. It is why we have decided to organize adventure in Balkan countries at the places which people have not heard of, much less visited and to take that unique opportunity to explore flora and fauna found in its vicinity, meet people who live there, their tradition, culture and customs.

You have the opportunity to experience adrenalin through controlled adventure situations, but also will realize that there is no alternative to team spirit. The adventures in Balkan countries are simple, short weekend trips that we organize for you. A one- or two-day break from the chaos and stress of the city. Relaxation and a short rest that will recharge your batteries for the days ahead every week.

In everyday life we are witnessing a great alienation between people, flourishing of individualism and ego-centrism, fear of straightforward and honest communication, loss of confidence, which are all occurring before our own eyes… To travel together with like-minded people and share an experience can mark the beginning of a new chapter in your life. So, I am inviting you to join us on our adventures, to change together and go back home feeling completely renewed after each trip, with a secretive smile at the corners of your mouth, the meaning of which will remain unknown to all but a few. Life is wonderful.

Dragan Jacimovic

Founder and owner of Extreme Summit Team. On May 26th 2000, Dragan became the first person from Serbia to climb the highest peak in the world, Mt. Everest (8848m). He climbed Cho-Oyu (8201m) during the post-monsoon season of 1998, and then climbed Ama Dablam (6854m) during the winter season of 1999. During his successful career as a guide he has climbed the highest peak in South America – Aconcagua (6962m) – seven times. As expedition leader, he has set new records in group climbs with a 100% success rate. In late July of 2004, 34 climbers under Dragan’s leadership successfully reached the summit of Mt. Elbrus (5642m). This achievement set a new record in group climbs of Mt. Elbrus. Following this success, in February 2008, he led all 22 members of an expedition to the summit of Aconcagua (6962m). During his career so far, he has led successful expeditions to Mt. Everest (8848m), Manaslu (8163m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Ama Dablam (6854m), Lobuche East (6119m), Island Peak (6189m) and Aconcagua (6962m). To date, he has led over 250 climbers to the world’s highest peaks, all across the planet. In addition, his expeditions have included the first woman from Serbia, the first climber from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the first Macedonian to return home alive from climbing Mt. Everest (8848m). Dragan’s greatest asset is the fact that all the members of his expeditions have returned home alive and in good health. He has participated in several humanitarian projects aimed at children without parental care, and is especially proud of helping the Sherpa community and equipping the primary school in the village of Namche Bazar (Khumbu, Nepal). He is instructor in UIAA national school of mountain guides in Serbia.
