My name is Rinzin Bhote. I am 45 years old. I live in Chepuwa village, in far Eastern Sankhuwasabha District, Nepal, a very lush and green place. I am married and have 2 children. I have been involved with the trekking world from early on in my life. I have worked through my way first as helper and as Sherpa assistance, until I reached a climbing guide position. In total I have 18 years of experience in climbing and for the last 18 years I have been leading treks and expeditions to several peaks in the Himalayas.
I have been almost everywhere in the Nepalese Himalayas and in some places of the Himalayan region of Tibet and India. I have been in Annapurna and in the Everest region many times. I have climbed Mount Everest two times. Other popular places I have been to are Langtang, Gosaikunda and Helambu. I have led many small and big groups and individual climbers to five of the 8-thousander peaks, like Everest (8848m) Makalu (8485m), ChoOyo , Shisapangma, and Lotshe.
I have spent many days in snow conditions at high altitude areas above 5000 meters, where some clients may experience sickness due to high altitude and I have always been able to handle such situations tactfully and in a safe way. Actually I am always prepared for any eventuality along the climbing.
My first ascents were Shisapanga (8013m) and, ChoOyo (8188m). I have also climbed almost all smaller trekking peaks and 6000m -7000m peaks like Gokyo Ri (5357 m), Yala Peak (5520m), Tharpu Chuli (5663m), Baruntse (7129m), Putha Hiunchuli (7246m), Saribung (6345m), Everest Thamserku (6623m), Mera Peak (6476m), Island Peak (6189m), Pisang Peak (6091), Lobuche (6145m), Kang Guru (6981m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Kanjiroba (6883m), Changla (6721m), Singu Chuli (6501m), among other mountains.
Just contact me and I will take you on a trek or on a great ascent expedition to some of the many Nepalese Himalayas amazing peaks.
