Trip Overview:

Seen from above Dingboche the mountain Imja Tse (Island Peak) resembles an island in a sea of ice. It was first climbed in 1953 by a very prestigious team in preparation for the ascent of Everest. It is an interesting and attractive summit with a highly glaciated West Face rising from the Lhotse glacier. The mountain itself is an extension of the South ridge of Lhotse Shar and is separated by a small col. Above this gap, rising to the south is a classically beautiful ridge leading to the summit of Imja Tse. As well as providing an enjoyable climb, the peak also provides some of the most striking scenery in the Khumbu region.

The trek to Everest Base Camp is for good reason one of the most famous in the world, and is a ‘must-do’ trip for all outdoor enthusiasts. With awe-inspiring views of the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains, our treks are carefully organised to ensure you have plenty of time to acclimatise comfortably, making sure you can enjoy the trekking experience to the full.

Our trip is a few days longer than most to allow for full acclimatisation by party members.

Introduction

This route allows you to explore the Thame valley and the Renjo la pass where the views of Everest, Pumori, Lhotse and Cho Oyu are truly amazing. You will also see fewer people on this route, and it is a far more remote trek. There are not many tea houses along this route, but these few are warm and clean.

The first day we have a briefing and sightseeing day in Kathmandu, where we can make sure that your kit is what you need and help you to get anything in the shops of bustling Thamel where our office is based. Then we’ll fly to the world famous mountain airstrip at Lukla and begin the trek up the Khumbu Valley. We pass through many Sherpa villages, including the famous Sherpa ‘capital’, Namche Bazaar, as well as visiting the monastery at Thyangboche (or Tengboche).

The trekking is on good trails, with some moraine stretches nearer to our destination but nowhere is this climbing or even scrambling – there are good paths all of the way. You can expect to trek for 4 to 6 hours each day, with some days spent resting and acclimatising to ensure that we are all fit and healthy at altitude. This makes the trek suitable for any averagely fit walker. On the route accommodation is in Nepal’s famous tea houses – the accommodation is basic but comfortable and the friendly, hospitable Nepali people make your stay a memorable one.
