Details

Mount Everest, rising 8,848m (29,028ft) above sea level reigns as the highest mountain on Earth. For decades summiting Everest has been considered one of the greatest mountaineering achievements. In the spring of each year, we embrace this intense challenge by taking a group of qualified climbers to Nepal to climb Mt. Everest via the South Col route. The South Col was the first successfully climbed route on Mt. Everest as Sir Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay accomplished this feat in 1953. Since then, the South Col has seen over 400 ascents. It is by far, the most successfully climbed route on the mountain.

The Everest area, known locally as Sagarmatha National Park, is home to some of the world’s highest peaks as well as the famous Sherpas, migrants from eastern Tibet who crossed over the Himalayas and settled here sometime in the late 1400s or early 1500s. This trek is one that goes deep into the heart of the Himalayas. “View of Mt Amadablam (6,812m) from Tengbouche”.

The mountain views are stunning, and the simplicity and hospitality of the Sherpa community are heartwarming. You will get to take in the awe-inspiring views of Mt. Everest, the tallest of them all, Mt Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Lobouche Peak, Mt Amadablam, Kasum Kangru peak, Thamserku peak, and Kwangde peak.

You will also be visiting Sherpa villages and monasteries to gain insight into their culture and lifestyle from up close. Trek to the north of Gokyo towards the Ranjo la Pass (5,340m) and to the border of Tibet Nangpa La are a most interesting and quiet area of the Everest region. The people and area are pretty much looking alike Tibet and Tibetans. The area to the North of Thame to Nangpa La is a restricted area so that to visit the area of Nangpa La, we have to obtain a special trekking permit from the Dept of Immigration.

This high Passes trek into the Solu-Khumbu region begins with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla & continually trekking along the Dudh Kosi (“Milk River”). After crossing the Namche Bazaar “Sherpa headquarter/Capital” we will continue on to Everest Base Camp via Dingbouche (4,350m) & Gorekshep (5,150m) with its beautiful natural beauty of the Himalayas & better introduction of local Sherpa cultures. Another part of this trek continues to North West of Thame/Everest region to the border to the Tibet Nangpa La. You will see the areas quiet and fewer trekkers and a little bit different cultures and people’s there, kind of Sherpas and Tibetans mix up cultures.
