Highlights

 
     

    Trekking and mountain climbing in the Himalayas of Nepal is a once in a lifetime experience. There is  an abundance of different routes and peaks to choose from. And on this 23 day adventure, we will be trekking through the Rolwaling valley, and climbing 2 different peaks, including Yalung Ri (5,630m) and Parchamo (6,273m).

    Along with the Rolwaling valley and the aforementioned peaks there will be many more exciting highlights on this trip as well.

    Some examples of those highlights include the following:

    • The Tabor Glacier (4,980m)
    • The village of Na
    • The village of Namche Bazaar
    • The Tasi Lapcha Pass (5,500m)
    • The village of Yak Kharka
    • The village of Simigaon

    You will also get to enjoy the famous, thrilling, and unbelievably scenic flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. Furthermore, you will get to enjoy several days in Kathmandu. Thus giving you a great contrasting experience between the country’s mountain villages and its capital city.

    On a trip like this, my goal is for participants to get the most immersive experience possible. My hope is that you not only enjoy the amazing climbing and views of the Himalayan mountains, but also the feel and atmosphere of Nepal as well. That includes the villages, cities, the people, and natural wonders of the region.

    Since this trip involves climbing some tough peaks, participants should have some previous mountain trekking and climbing experience. It is also important that you are in good physical condition.

    If you are looking for an adventure in Nepal, then this 23 day expedition through the Rolwaling valley and the Parchamo Peak will make you very happy. To be a part of it, all you have to do is send me a request.

    Would you like to enjoy another Nepalese adventure? If so, you can also join me on this 18 day journey to the summit of the Mera Peak.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in Kranj (Slovenia), and since I was a child the mountains have been my passion. I graduated in Sports at Ljubljana University and started an alpine career as a member of the Kranj Alpine Club.

    In 1977, I climbed my first eight-thousander: it was a new route on Gasherbrum I. Some years later, a partner and I became the first Slovenians to ascend Mt Everest, also on a new route.

    In fact, I’ve been at the top of Everest twice. The second time, I reached the summit with my wife Marija, and we were the first married couple achieving that.

    Throughout my alpine career, I took part and even lead more than 20 expeditions in the Nepalese Himalayas. There, I climbed more than six peaks over eight thousand meters: two of them on new routes and three using pure alpine style. I also climbed in Patagonia, Pamir, USA, Caucasus and Scotland.

    However, my major success was climbing a new route on Kangchenjunga, in alpine style and together with climber Marko Prezelj. After this, we won the prestigious mountaineering award Piolet d’Or.

    I am a mountain guide since 1982 and I obtained my IFMGA license in 1997. I am also an instructor at the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association (SMGA).

    I still live in Kranj with my wife and the youngest of our three children.

    Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.

    We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!
