“One day the master of the mountains realized how sad the people from the city were with their routines, yearnings, fears, and worries. It was then that he decided to come down to teach that we can have a life that is intense, exciting, different, bold and full of adventures. “

The passion for mountain sports is what unites us, motivates us and strengthens us. Climbing a mountain, taking long walks, tough crossings, challenges us, fires our adrenaline. We are the Paulista Mountaineering Group, but you can call us just PMG. Come and meet us, take part in our courses and events and be part of this great family.
We are a nonprofit institution that aims to promote, foment and encourage the practice and teaching of mountain sports with responsibility and safety.
The PMG is not just a school where you go to learn how to climb mountains. We always seek to go beyond. As we believe that it is possible to build a better world, through the sport we love so much, we develop projects that materialize our beliefs, such as our social actions – the Climb for the Disabled and the Adopt a Mountain projects – and our courses, designed both for those who know nothing about the sport and for those who already climb and yearn for new challenges.
The PMG is a dream come true for a group of mountain climbers who, since 1999, have been active in mountains. People who love what they do, love to share knowledge and to live outdoors.
Every year we change the lives of many people.
Come and be part of the PMG.
Professionals with solid practical experience in the diverse modalities of mountain sport are part of the Paulista Mountaineering Group. People who are fond of the energy that the outdoor sport releases in each individual and who are interested in passing on this knowledge to the students.
Every year we bring up mountaineering courses and events in lively planning meetings for a hectic annual schedule of classes and various activities related to climbing, trekking, hiking, and social activities. We are all volunteers in this endeavor. In addition to the executive board, composed of six members, many people committed to the group collaborate to make PMG a privileged space.
Our doors are open to new eager, stiff and engaged volunteers. Those who enter GPM are surrounded by a team that sees in mountaineering a philosophy of life, a moment to exercise leadership, develop team spirit, practice fellowship and love of nature, activities that increase inner peace. Nobody leaves the GPM in the same way they got into it!
Interested? So come and meet us. It will be great to see you in our courses and events.
A happy coincidence started the Paulista Mountaineering Group. It was in 1995, during a fraternisation in the capital of São Paulo to gather former scholarship students of courses in Japan, that several participants discovered how much the passion for mountaineering was common among them.
They left the party already with meetings scheduled to plan some climbing. The first one in 1999 was so successful and so good that the event happened other times and attracted more people.
The former scholarship students realized that many people had the same passion, set up new outings until they decided to create the PMG in 2003, so they could share knowledge and strengthen friendships. More than 20 years have passed and more than 250 mountaineers were trained, all bitten by the freedom, emotion and adventure bug.
