Tshering, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, and his team of professional local guides want to take you on a 13 day expedition to the summit of the Baden-Powell peak, formally known as Urkema Peak.
Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Oct, Nov
Formally known as the Urkema Peak, the Baden Powell peak (5,826m) is a wonderful Himalayan mountain in Nepal.
Standing tall on the border with China, the Baden Powell Peak is a quiet, mostly untouched, preserved peak. Few people venture to it. In fact, I myself am one of the first mountaineers to climb it. Thus making it a personal favourite of mine.
This 13 day trip is perfect for people who want to avoid the crowds of the some of the other, more famous peaks in the range. It is for people who want to truly take in the peace and tranquillity that only the enormity of the Himalayas can offer. It is also a great example of real mountaineering because there are no fixed ropes. Instead, we will have to do everything ourselves. However, one similarity this peak has with the others in the area are the amazing views from its summit.
From the fresh snow covered top of the Baden Powell, you will be able to see several amazing peaks. They include the Langtang Lirung (7,227m), Ganesh Himal (7,422m) and Shisha pangma (8,013m) in Tibet, among many others.
Throughout the 13 day trip, you will be staying in hotels, tea houses and tents, all of which are very comfortable. You will also have the chance to explore Kathmandu. And you will get to visit such wonderful sights like the Langtang village and Kyanjin Gompa.
With so many amazing and popular mountains in Nepal, to have the chance to climb one that few ever visit is a valuable thing. I wish to guide you to the summit of the Baden Powell peak, a truly beautiful mountain. Please send me a message if you wish to join me.
If you want to climb one of the more popular, and much larger mountains in Nepal, I also offer a 31 day trek to the summit of Mount Manaslu.

Hi! I'm Tshering, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.
I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet. I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!

Very helpful of explore share to reroute my trip to other guide. Very happy with Tshering Bhote guides! Only thing is we pushed to fast to summit. I think that was the reason we did not make it.
I had an amazing experience with Tshering’s experienced and highly qualified team including guide Sonam Shalaka and Sherpa Thomas Vechayba. I really enjoyed the concept of acclimating for Ama Dablam by doing the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Lakes and climbing a number of peaks along the way, including Lobuche, rather than the typical repetitive climbs from base camp. It is always my preference to climb with local guides who intimately know the mountain and local customs and this was a perfect example of the benefits of that rather than going with a large group of westerners. Explore-Share always does a great job of facilitating those connections. This was an outstanding experience all around and I would gladly recommend Tshering and his team for any mountaineering experience in the Himalayas.
I would definitely recommend booking with Tshering’s company, Top Himalaya Guides! He is very welcoming and due to his extensive experience with the mountains, he can help you with all the arrangements and any questions or other service requests you have. Due to his recommendation, we were able to change my itinerary to something that I wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on! He also provided excellent staff, my guide Namja was very experienced and qualified, which made me feel super safe in the mountains at all times. I can only look back on an incredible trip! Already looking forward to the next!
Thanks for the email. After the initial confusion, climbing was great and Sonam was an amazing guide! Both Eveline and myself had a wonderful time and wish we could have kept climbing! Thanks for making our trips to Nepal even more unforgettable!!
Tshering was so great and informative. Very nice personal day out. He made sure everything was great and that we enjoyed ourselves! :)
