If you're in search of a full day trip out of Kathmandu with some sport climbing on limestone crags, Hattiban is the spot for you.
You can even stay at a nearby monastery and develop some meditative abilities. It'll be a really fun and exciting day. Not only because you'll improve your climbing skills but also because you'll learn a lot about Nepalese culture.
Hattiban is a climbing site 15 km southwest of Kathmandu. It's specially ideal for professional climbers looking for some top level grades climbs. There are 8 different routes in Hattiban, all of them really well bolted.
You will not have to worry about anything regarding this day trip. I will provide the travel arrangements, box lunch, climbing gear and of course, professional IFMGA guiding service.
As for the itinerary, we will start from Bulku and have a bus ride for a half hour until we arrive at Dollu. We'll get off the bus in an area called Parphing. You will find the Hattiban rock climbing site above the monasteries on their north ridge.
This rock climbing trip is available all year round except during the monsoon season (June, July and August). I also offer many other similar programs during this period. You can check out this 2-day rock climbing tour in Bimal Nagar. Another amazing Nepalese spot.

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.
Very good acclimatisation program and safe 1:1 climbing as I always was well looked after. Communication regarding weather and conditions were meticulous so we could adapt as we went along, increasing safety.
Tshering prepared and organized the tour very professionally. All about logistic, difficult transport condition due to bad weather, skilled guide and assistant, and overall security was under his control. A good communication and a team spirit made the sucess of the Mera Peak ascent.
It was an absolutely AMAZING experience and Sonam is very professional, friendly and helpful. I will recommend him and Tshering 100%
