Description

Mount Everest (8,848m) is the highest mountain in the entire world. Its legend is as enormous as the mountain itself. And among the towering peaks of the Himalayas, it is the supreme peak. And on this sprawling 53 day expedition, you will get to reach this mammoth peak’s awe inspiring summit.

A trek to the summit of Everest is a trek to glory. It is the dream of many, if not all mountaineers. And the moments spent breathing in the thin air from the summit are indescribable. And it is our pleasure to see that dream come true, and to have you enjoy those phenomenal moments.

Beyond the fantastic experience of reaching Everest’s summit, this trip also involves several other adventures, most of which are worthy of a trip all on their own. Those adventures include several days in Kathmandu, which you will get to explore, the famed flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and back, and a visit to the gorgeous Thyangboche Monastery. You will also get to visit several wonderful Nepalese villages, including Namche Bazaar, Deboche and Phakding.

When it comes to the Everest climb itself, you will have not days, but weeks to conquer this amazing mountain. Thus giving you plenty of  time to get properly acclimatized.

On this expedition, you will get to enjoy the thrill of climbing the world’s highest peak. And you will get to do it in complete comfort, with professional guidance throughout. Do you want to live this dream shared by so many climbers around the world?  Then send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We can also take you to the summit of the great Manaslu mountain on this 52 day trip.

Accommodation

We will be staying in a hotel B&B in Kathmandu, various full board lodges, and camping in various sites throughout the climbing expedition.
