Description

Nepal is a fantastic place, and hiking through its mountainous areas creates memories that will never leave you. And on this 3 week adventure, you will have the chance to hike through several different areas, from Solukhumbu to Khumbu.

While there is an itinerary for this trip, it is not iron clad. The reason being, we prefer to tailor our trips to the desires of our clients. As a result, based on your climbing experience, skill level and ambitions, we will create the right trip for you.

However, regardless of the itinerary, you can rest assured that throughout this amazing 3 week adventure, you will get to enjoy views that will truly amaze you. Depending on where we are, you will be able to see some of the Himalayas’ highest and most famous peaks. Just a few examples of the peaks you will get to see include Cho Oyu (8,201m), Ama Dablam (6,856m), Changtse (7,553m), Lhotse (8,516m), and many more, including the mythical Mount Everest (8,848m).

From cities like Kathmandu to villages like Jiri, you will get a real taste of the beauty of Nepal during this trek. In those places, along with others like Thame and the amazing Namche Bazar, you will get to meet many wonderful local people. Thus giving you a chance to not only admire the breathtaking peaks of the Himalayas, but also the amazing people who call the area home.

Furthermore, along with those amazing experiences, you will also get to climb Gokyo Ri (5,350m). Other highlights include glacial lakes, suspension bridges, a beautiful monastery, amazing passes like Renjo La (5,345m), and the famously thrilling and scenic flight from Lukla to Kathmandu.

With so much to see and do in the mountainous regions of Nepal, 3 weeks might not seem like enough time, but we will do our best to show you as much as possible. So send us a request, and let us create the right trip for you.

I can also lead you through the Naar Phu valleys on this 24 day trek as well.

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide
I come from Marseille and I found my passion for mountaineering very early, climbing Les Calanques, some mountains in the Verdon region and in the Alps. I got my IFMGA (mountain guide) certificate in 1983 and my ski instructor license in 1985.
I brought my clients on many summits of the Alps and went abroad to discover the world. I went skiing, climbing, mountaineering… in Morocco, Norway, Algeria (Hoggar), Yosemite (El Capitan) and Nepal. I discovered this passion for travelling and started to organize my first trips with my clients. In the late 80’, I went to the Annapurna Sanctuary and I did several ascents in Peru (Pisco, Yanapatcha and Huascaran). In the 90’, I did several trips in Nepal (Helambu, Langtang…).
I then kept on and further explored the world with my clients: Rolwaling traverse (Perchamo, Mera Peak Mingbo La), the summits of Yala Peak and the Yana Kanga, Patagonia (in Argentina), Manaslu tour in Nepal, Meso Kanto La, Mustang, Atacama desert in chili and many others.
I like bringing my clients mountaineering in summer and ski touring / heliskiing in winter.
Get in touch with me and let's discuss about your next guiding tour !
