In 2003, CiLAO was created after a trip to Reunion Island and meeting Ludovic Challeat—High-mountain guide, Himalayan specialist, deceased in 2012—atop the Mont Blanc.
With all the guides, athletes, military brigades and other mountain professionals climbing the surrounding mountains, the Chamonix Valley has long been an inspiration to optimize and innovate.
Today our base camp is in Annecy, at the foot of the French Alps.
We at CiLAO are passionate about our products and create a culture of exchange with our professionals and athletes.
CiLAO in Malgasy is Tsy Laosy: “One we do not leave”
