Description

Join me for this 19-day ascent program to Paldor Peak (5,896 m), one of the popular summits in the Ganesh Himal range. This is an intense but accessible program, as well as very rewarding experience. Get ready to experience Nepal, out of the beaten tracks.

As a local guide, what I enjoy the most is sharing my culture and the history of my country with my guests. This is what brings me the most joy about being a Nepali IFMGA certified mountain guide.

To begin this program, we will need to drive from Kathmandu to Sabru Bensi, in the Trisuli valley. This takes between 6 and 8 hours. Once there, we begin the trekking itinerary to Sabrubesi across the Langtang Khola.

The main route across the glacier is crevassed. On reaching the col there are two options either climb the straightforward ridge using ropes, or continue around to the crevassed back for easier 45 degree inclined ridge.

The Paldor Peak summit is easy to reach, if weather conditions are good. Once up in the peak, the views are exceptional. You will be able to enjoy the rich landscape, featuring the Ganesh Himal peaks, Langtang Lirung (7,227 m) and Manaslu (8,156 m) ,as well as some mountains of Tibet, like Shishapangma (8,013 m).

On our way, we will trek across ancient traditional villages like After Tangjet and Gatlang, with a rich Tamang culture.

Note that the price for the tour is a full-board package and includes: NMA climbing permits, all the logistics from your arrival to your departure from Kathmandu.

Have a look at the detailed itinerary below for more details. Note that this itinerary can vary. I can adapt it to your wished and time availability.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Jyamchang, 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 come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.

I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.

I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.

It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

What people are saying about Jyamchang & Guides' Team

As some famous mountaineer once said about his Sherpa climbing partner, Jyamchang belongs to a new generation of Nepali guides who really love to climb. For them, mountaineering isn’t just about business. And that’s the reason why we got along very well whilst attempting the ascent of Ama Dablam in April 2017. We were lucky enough to be able to meet beforehand in Chamonix for a thorough check-up of the equipment and a briefing on the various logistics. I found him to be that kind of straight-to-the-point, smiling and organized person I was hoping to have as a guide and partner for an ambitious climb above 6000 meters, which I had only performed once before (on Island Peak). We met at the airport in Kathmandu and joined a good friend of mine and his trekking guide, who accompanied us during the acclimatization trip across the 3 passes and on to EBC. This gave us plenty of time to get our bodies accustomed to altitude. Jyamchang and I performed a daily health check-up to monitor the effects of altitude, a routine which I found to be very professional. We had agreed during our first Skype discussions that we were going to climb alpine style. That is minimum logistics, no fixed ropes etc. The idea of climbing a difficult mountain such as Ama Dablam without these facilitating artefacts strongly appealed to me, and I appreciated that Jyamchang pushed for this approach of the climb. This was not just pulling the client to the top of the mountain and then collecting the summit bonus. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions the day before summit day, we were unable to reach the summit. However, I found that Jyamchang’s attitude during the difficult descent with rapidly degrading weather conditions, and another party that we had to help descend, was again showing a professional and competent approach to the mountain environment. All in all, we had a great time in the beautiful surroundings of the Khumbu valley and may be climbing together again in a future expedition. I can strongly recommend Jyamchang for trekking and climbing elsewhere in the world (Jyamchang also guides in Norway). Martin, 32 - Belgium

Professional, competent and friendly guide who always takes great care of the clients. We were a group trekking and climbing during 21 days in the Everest region with the company. We were a group of friends who all knew the guide on beforehand, and knew how good he is at his work. We were very pleased with the experience we had. I can recommend the company for everyone who wants a great experience in the Himalayas.
