A fun and exciting week in the Lantang Valley climbing the 30-meter-long Eagle Nest frozen waterfall. Your guide will be Tshering, a local IFMGA-certified mountain guide.
The Eagle Nest waterfall lies in the Lantang Valley. It’s a Nepalese region in the north of Kathmandu, near the border with Tibet. Langtang is not only an amazing valley but also an important protected area. It is indeed the 4th largest national park in Nepal.
As a local mountain guide I love seeking out new ice climbing spots all the time. That’s why I discovered the Eagle Nest and I became one of the first climbers to ascend it in February 2007. Now I’d like to guide you there so you get a real feel of the place and of the adrenaline of climbing it.
The climb to the Eagle Nest icefall consists in a one-pitch route of 30 meters in length. Right after this frozen waterfall there is the Jean Coudery, another icefall of the same characteristics. Actually you’ll have the opportunity to climb both in a same day!
I have no doubt that this 7-day ice climbing trip in the Eagle Nest will be a memorable experience and a life changing trip.
Contact me now and make your reservation for you and your group. I will be happy to help you climb such amazing ice needles!
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!

I can\'t say enough about Top Himalaya Guides (THG)! Extremely knowledgeable and experienced guides with a genuine passion for the mountains. Our lead guide Sonam did a great job of managing expectations and ensuring that we stayed healthy and happy throughout the expedition. We were fortunate to summit all of our objectives including Ama Dablam, which was an experience of a lifetime. I highly recommend THG for any Himalayan experience and will definitely be using them again when I return to Nepal!!

Tshering was so great and informative. Very nice personal day out. He made sure everything was great and that we enjoyed ourselves! :)
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!!
