Highlights

 
     

    Mount Everest (8,848m) is a legendary mountain. And while reaching its summit is the goal of many people, I believe hiking to its famed base camp is an adventure all on its own.

    Over the course of 16 days, you will have the chance to hike through beautiful Himalayan terrain. There is so much to see during this trek that every day will be worthwhile.

    The trek will start in the city of Kathmandu, where you will arrive, and also have a day to tour the city. Afterwards, we will take an exciting flight to Lukla. And from there, the trekking will begin.

    With Everest looming above and beyond, constantly staring down, awaiting your arrival, you will see some truly amazing things. Some of the best sights include Namche Bazaar, several Sherpa villages, and the Pangboche and Thyangboche monastaries.

    We will be at high altitude throughout the trek, but there will be several stays designated for acclimatization. However, the advantage of the altitude will be the incomparable views you will have. You will have the chance to marvel at a panoramic view of Everest from Kala Pattar. And you will also have the chance, throughout the hike, to admire some of the highest mountains in the world, from Lhotse (8,516m) to Nuptse (7,861m). Finally, at the culmination of our trek, we will reach the famous Everest Base Camp (5,362m).

    Everything about Everest is magical. That includes its base camp. And considering the altitude of that camp is higher than such famous mountains as the Matterhorn (4,478m) and Mont Blanc (4,810m) it’s easy to why. So please message me if trekking to this amazing area interests you.

    If you have more time in Nepal, and want to trek to another great mountain, I also offer a 29 day trip to the base camp of Kanchenjunga (8,586m).

    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 Bhote

     

    After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam\'s steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn\'s commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.

    Excellent guide, à la fois attentionné et motivant. Il a su s\'adapter à notre rythme tout en nous stimulant suffisamment pour qu\'on atteigne nos objectifs quotidiens. Il nous faisait un briefing journalier avec le programme du lendemain et ses difficultés éventuelles et une vérification de notre adaptation à l\'altitude (pouls, saturation en oxygène). Dès le premier jour, il a tout pris en charge tant du point de vue de l\'organisation des transports que des hôtels sans faux pas.

    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
