our client says Reise ins geheimnisvolle Königreich Mustang Am 1. Mai 2010 machten sich, 7 abenteuerhungrige Schweizer auf den langen Flug nach Kathmandu. Einerseits mit grosser Vorfreude und andererseits mit einem etwas mulmigen Gefühl, da in ganz Nepal einen Generalstreik vorausgesagt wurde und wir nicht wussten ob unser Trekking ins Königreich Mustang wirklich zustande kommen wird. Doch am Flughafen in Kathmandu wurden wir schon von Yagya unserem Trekkinguide vor Ort freundlich empfangen und er cauffierte uns mit dem Bus das erste Mal durch die Strassen von Kathmandu in unser Hotel im Stadtteil Tamel. Durch den Streik waren alle Einheimischen auf der Strasse, überall wurden Parolen gerufen , rote Flaggen und T-Shirt getragen, es herrschte ein richtiges Chaos und das richtige Leben stand völlig still, ausser wir als Touristen wurden noch in der Stadt herumgefahren. Müde und froh sind wir dann im Hotel angekommen und genossen ein par Stunden für uns bis wir uns dann gemeinsam zum Abendessen trafen. read more View All

Everest Expedition
Loading image. Please wait
There are 1310 identified Himalayan peaks in Nepal and 326 peaks have been opened for mountaineering in Nepal.

Nepal having 8 out of 14 the highest peaks in the world is renowned for mountaineering. The thousands of mountaineers come in to Nepal from the far and wide of the world each year to fulfill their desire of standing on the summit of the Himalayas.

Mountaineering Expedition is similar to challenging treks, however, includes basic mountaineering above the snow line using ice axe, crampons ropes and necessary climbing gears under the supervision and instruction from the climbing leader/guide.

People wanting to do this type of expedition needs psychological and physical stamina plus prior experience is certainly an advantage, but not essential. Minimum 30 days required for the trekking and mountaineering. We have some Himalayas day by day programs.  
 
 
Mount Everest Expedition

Mount Everest, the greatest challenge, is more than the famous mountain on earth. It has unique beauty, mystery and mood. Successful historical Everest Expeditions leaves one with the sense of most proud and adventurous person on Earth. Mt. Everest's local names give you a sense of how the mountain commands respect from all who see her. The Nepali name, Sagarmatha, means "head touching the sky" and in Sherpa, Chomolungma, meaning "Mother Goddess of the world.

The South Col route on the Nepalese side of Mt. Everest is the way taken by Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa while climbing Everest, who successfully climbed the top in 29 May 1953 registering their names as a Hero of the adventure world. Climbing Everest expedition has been successfully organised and climbed many times since then, but this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into complacency. Everest is a deadly mountain. Noting this, one cannot approach the mountain with anything but a serious determination and focused mountaineering attitude.

After the last rocky moraine dunes, a short downhill walk brings you to Gorakshep, the flat field below Kala Patthar (5545m) and Mt. Pumori (7145m.) Gorakshep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp with the new camp being further up the valley. The walk is gradual until you reach a rocky spot; from there another uphill climb for half an hour brings you to Kala Patthar. From Kala Patthar top, the views will be beyond your wildest imagination, with Everest seeming within a stones throw distance between the summit of Mt. Nuptse and Lho-La and Lhotse on the back. The panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish and you feel it’s worth the hard climb up to here and to feel at the top of the world. With all the higher snow capped giants that dominate all around, it is truly a magnificent spot to be at on a clearer sunny day.
