IFMGA certified mountain guide Tshering wants to guide you to the summit of the greatest mountain in the world, Everest, via the Nepal side.
Apr, Jun, Sep, Oct
Mount Everest (8,848m) is the king of all the world's mountains. And on this incredible expedition, I want to guide you to its summit, a place that so many dream of, but so few actually experience.
There are 2 different routes to reach Everest's summit: the Nepal side and the Tibet side. On this trip, we will be climbing on the Nepal side. Because Everest is the world's greatest mountain, climbing it can easily be considered the world's greatest challenge. Thus why this trip is only for people in peak physical condition, with extensive climbing experience.
There is no standard itinerary for this trip because there is nothing standard about Everest. However, I can provide you with a general guideline.
The adventure will begin in Kathmandu, where you will have a few days to explore the city, while we prepare for the trip to come. From Kathmandu we will fly to Lukla. After that we will trek to several places including Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Pangboche, Dingboche, Chukhung, Lobuche, Gorak, and Shep before reaching the famous Everest base camp.
After base camp there will be plenty of rest days, training days in places like the Khumbu ice fall, and ascents and descents for acclimatization purposes. And when the team is ready, we will make our final ascent to the summit. Afterwards, we will descend the mountain and make our way back to Lukla, where we will fly back to Kathmandu, and you will head home.
If you have ever dreamed about reaching the top of Everest then this is the trip where you can do it. If you want to join me on this once in a lifetime adventure, please send me a message.
And if you want to join me on another amazing climbing adventure in Nepal, I can also guide you to the summit of Mount Manaslu (8,163m) on this expedition.
- 4 night's bed and breakfast accommodation in Kathmandu on a twin-sharing basis whilst in Kathmandu, and in route to the Mt. Everest. - Full board accommodation in lodges ("Tea Houses").
Any changes to the itinerary will be made with the intention of maximising the benefit to the team members and of ensuring their eventual success on the mountain. Also, if you are interested in climbing Everest via the Tibet side, I can accommodate you. Please contact me and we can discuss it.

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 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.
I would definitely recommend booking with Tshering’s company, Top Himalaya Guides! He is very welcoming and due to his extensive experience with the mountains, he can help you with all the arrangements and any questions or other service requests you have. Due to his recommendation, we were able to change my itinerary to something that I wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on! He also provided excellent staff, my guide Namja was very experienced and qualified, which made me feel super safe in the mountains at all times. I can only look back on an incredible trip! Already looking forward to the next!
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!!

My self and two friends planned a trip to Everest region in December 2014. We were recommended Tshering of Tormod Granheim, a Norwegian who has been at Mt. Everest with Tshering. With ski ... Our trip was far far less demanding than that. But no less reason to be very pleased with Tshering. We walked from Lukla, to Namche Bazar, further to Everest View Hotel and then finally we reached our goal; Varak Peak. 4,618 meters above sea level. Tshering is in addition to being a pleasant companion also well known and experienced guy. Especially fun is it to be with him in this region where he knows "all" the local people. We had good days in the mountains, and were also lucky with the weather. To see Mt. Everest both in sunset and sun rice is amazing!
I am planning an expedition to Ama Dablam in 2016, I choose Tshering, because I met him in Norway and had a conversation with him. He then suggested that we could train together in Norway before I go to Nepal. We have done some climbing on glacier, some rock climbing and alpine ascents in Norway and I will never regret that I choose him and his company. He seems very professional and he is a very good instructor. Looking forward going to Nepal.
Tshering and his company was our guides during our Medical Aid Mountaineering trip in October 2014. Their way of preparing the trip, handling the challenges underway, securing our safety, including us in the process and taking care of us, in addition to sharing their knowledge of their culture and the Himalayas, was fantastic! I have been in the Himalayas in different countries and with other companies, but this company and Thsering was the best so far! Especially his knowledge about safety and climbing was essential for us as we where there during dangerous times, but his decisions got us safely through. In addition to that he and the rest of his guides where nice, open and smiling people, that we could laugh, have fun, enjoy the landscape and culture with, to the full! I would recommend him and his company to anyone travelling in the Himalayas and other places they arranged trips. Jimmy Westerheim

Because of the unpredictable nature of Mount Everest, there is no such thing as a standard expedition to its summit, and as a result of that unpredictability there is no standard price either. However, the listed price is a fairly accurate estimation.
The price of the flight to Lukla is included in the price; however, the price of your flight to Kathmandu from your home country is not.
