Description

An amazing trekking peak that offers some of the best views in the Himalayas, the Island peak (6,189m), near Mount Everest is a tremendous mountain to visit. And on this 16 day adventure, you will not only get to venture to the top of this great mountain, but you will also get to see a great deal of the area surrounding it. Thus giving you a thrilling, all encompassing experience in the Everest region of Nepal.

Along with climbing to the summit of a 6,000 meter plus peak, where you can gaze at Everest, as well as other giants of the area, you will also get to spend days in Kathmandu. You will get to explore the city’s array of great sites, as well as venture to the nearby valley. You will get to enjoy a scenic round trip flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. While only 35 minutes, I assure you the flight is as unforgettable as it is unbelievable. You will also get to spend several days in a number of beautiful Nepalese villages, not only for the purpose of acclimatization, but also for the chance to immerse yourself in the incredible local culture.

We will be trekking for several hours for the majority of the days on this trip. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition.

A trip like this is the kind of experience adventurers yearn for their whole lives. And I would be more than happy to guide you every step of the way. To enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also lead a 16 day expedition to the summit of the beautiful Labuche peak as well.

About the guide

IFMGA / UIAGM Mountain guide

Born in 11 August 1975 in the mountainous district of Jiri / Dolakha, I’ve spend my last 23 years in the trekking and mountaineering sector and this is undergoing till date...

I’m a certified mountain guide of the UIAGM/IFMGA/IVBV. I’m also a certified Mountaineering Instructor from Ecole Nationale de Ski et Alpinism in France (ENSA). I'm serving Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA) and Nepal Mountaineering Instructors Association (NMIA) as a Mountaineering Instructor.

I’ve gained enormous experience in the Himalaya as well as in the Alps. I’ve reached the top of 4000 meters peaks of the Alps and the world highest mountains including Mt. Everest (8848m) which I successfully summited 7 times.

I summit at least one 8000 meters mountain every year with my clients.

I'm also very much involved in the Nepali mountain rescue team with which I have saved lives of locals and foreigners trying to reach our peaks.

Beside being a professional mountain guide, I’ve been very much involved with the “Save the Everest” cleaning campaign that took place in spring 2011.

If you are thinking about coming to Nepal for a trek, to climb a peak or to go for a large expedition, please get in touch with me. I will be happy to support you in your organisation and make sure you can reach the objective you have set for yourself.
