Also named “Chomolangma” by Tibetan people or “Sagarmatha” by the Nepalese, Mount Everest has the same meaning in any language. It is the goddess and mother of immensity.

During these 65 days I will lead a really important expedition attacking the south face of Mount Everest. As you may know, it’s the highest mountain of the world with a total height of 8.848 meters.

It will be a challenge for those mountaineers who want to live the feat achieved in the past by the first climbers in reaching Mount Everest, Edmund Hillary (New Zealand) and Tenzing Norgay (from Nepal).

I will put all my knowledge and technical background at your service so that you can take the best from such an experience. Besides being Nepalese and being IFMGA certified, I have successfully guided Everest five times so I know the area very well.

The expedition starts in the region of Khumbu, Eastern Nepal, more precisely in Lukla. The trail-head will be in Phakding, a small town at 2.610 meters high, declared World Heritage in 1979.
