Trekking in Nepal

We run a wide variety of treks in Nepal, and are set up to handle any tailor-made requests.  The following are treks we arrange regularly for our clients:

Everest Base Camp

A classic trek which many aspire to, especially first time visitors to Nepal seeking grand scenery.  Our approach differs from the direct route in, and gives you the opportunity to explore some of the less visited Sherpa villages en route to Everest and make other worthwhile detours, including an acclimatisation climb to Chhukhung Ri, in the Imja Khola valley. Reach Kala Patthar for superb views of Everest (we recommend your climb is made after a night at Gorak Shep as opposed to Lobuche). Traditionally, a visit to Everest Base Camp itself is excluded as there are no views to speak of, but you can add a day to cross the Khumbu glacier if you desire.......... click here for more

Everest Base Camp via Gokyo

An extended tour of the Khumbu region which requires more time than the standard trek to Everest Base Camp.  This trek has the advantage of being a circular route, and the thrill of crossing a major pass, although buffer days are recommended in case of snowfall on the Cho La.  The trail breaks off the main route to Everest Base Camp, leading up the Gokyo Valley towards Cho Oyo.  Having gained good views of Everest from Gokyo Ri, you then cross the magnificent Cho La pass before heading up to Kala Patthar, the main viewpoint for trekkers seeking views of Everest.  A wonderful trek if you have the time, and magnificent views of 8000m peaks.

Climb Mera Peak

A deservedly popular climb for more adventurous trekkers, Mera Peak is situated in a less frequented corner of the Everest region, within the Makalu Barun National Park. At 6476m, Mera is the highest of the designated Nepalese trekking peaks, and presents no technical difficulty, making it very attainable for non-climbers.  The approach is initially made through beautiful forests to access the entry to the Hingku valley, which presents a deep corridor through magnificent 6000m peaks.  The climb up to the Mera La and the final oxygen-deprived slog to the summit is worth every step for the fine views of Everest, Makalu, Chamlang, Cho Oyo and Kanchenjunga - possibly one of the most outstanding panoramas in the entire Nepal Himalaya......... click here for more

Island Peak

This is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal, and with good reason. Situated directly below the south face of Lhotse and ringed by spectacular peaks and glaciers, Island Peak makes for a truly enjoyable climb that is not beyond the reach of novice climbers who are in good physical condition.  The approach to the top of the Southwest ridge is a straightforward 50 degree pull-up, and the final steps along the ridge offer an exciting, if mildly precipitous finish. From the summit there are superb 360 degree views, taking in the Nuptse-Lhotse wall, Makalu, Baruntse and Ama Dablam. Access is easy as its not far from the main Everest trail, and climbers can use tea houses until just before base camp........ click here for more
