OVERVIEW TOUR

There is no doubt that Himalayas have lured adventurers, mountaineers and cultural enthusiast for many decades. Among all these Mount Everest, remains the premier guided climbing challenge of our time. This ascend via South is led by a team of highly experienced IFMGA/UIAGM certified Sherpa guides. No place on earth inspires mountaineers like the sheer scale and height of the Himalaya. For climbers interested in ascending Mount Everest but are not able to join our summit climb, Himalayan Gorilla Adventure presents the opportunity to climb through the Khumbu Icefall to Camp 2, at nearly 21,000 feet. These exciting options allow you to gain high altitude experience while challenging yourself in one of the most remarkable places on earth. Mount Everest was first summited by Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmond Hillary in 1953 from the South Side. Mount Everest while not posing substantial technical climbing difficulty, does require a high level of climbing proficiency on steep and exposed terrain at high altitude

Everest Camp II climbing begins with exhilarating flight to lukla. We head up to ascend Island Peak before heading to Everest Base Camp. Island peak is the most popular as it is suitable to all novice climbers and veteran trekkers; an ideal warm trip which offers spectacular views of Himalayan giants: Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Ama Dablam and hundreds of Himalayan peaks. Many climbers refers to call Camp I [6,000m (19,685ft)] as Valley of Silence as we’ll be forced to move east across the snowfield to the base of Mt. Nuptse and a small passageway known as “Nuptse Corner where the area is marked by huge crevasses, running laterally across the basin, too deep and numerous to cross. Camp II  [6,400m (21,000ft)] lies at the end of the Western Cwm, and the base of the Lhotse Face. The area is littered with abandoned gear from descending climbers too fatigued to carry the equipment home. To climb this steep ice face, we’ll use jumars, which are a type of locking carabiner that can free-rise, but then lock onto the rope so the climbers can pull themselves up. We will return to Base Camp and then to lukla via dingboche to catch return flight to Kathmandu.

Namche Bazaar is the main trading town for the Sherpa people and a busy market town, frequented by Tibetans selling their wares. We will have 3 nights in Namche Bazaar.
Namche Bazar is the perfect place for the necessary acclimatisation. We take an acclimatisation walk up to the Sherpa Museum at 3,600m/ 11,811 feet before returning to Namche and the Himalayan lodge for Lunch. You can spend the rest of the day relaxing and exploring the town and enjoy the local bakeries and a few games of pool at Cafe Danphe bar.

We will spend 30 minutes at this high point before dropping back to the lodge for lunch. Once again we can rest in Namche for the afternoon.

Tengbouche has an important monastery in the area, where people congregate for the Mani Rimbdu festival in November every year. We will sleep in Tengboche tonight at 3,867m/ 12,687 feet.
After trekking for about an hour, we cross through a dangerous landslide area of the trail, before moving to Pangboche for a tea break. We can enjoy spectacular views of Ama Dablam.

Today we will make our summit attempt on Island Peak 6,189m/ 20,305ft, however, this may be delayed due to weather conditions. This is a long hard climb; initially there is a steep 400m/1,312ft zig-zag rocky scree path with some scrambling, before a scramble and traverse across to a steeper section of rock. This is straight forward trekking, but very strenuous and once you hit 5,900m/ 19,357ft the altitude slows the pace dramatically and the final rock section never seems to end, but once you dig deep, we top out onto a narrow ridge which takes us to the start of the glacier. We get all our gear on, rope up and cross the glacier before the 100m/ 328ft head wall which is fixed by our climbing Sherpa’s, before the tricky final section to the summit. After we enjoy our summit success, we begin the long decent back to high camp. We will rest for a couple of hours before making the journey all the way back to Chhukung.
