The journey to the plateau of Tibet is very exciting. It follow the narrow corridor that leads to Nyalam - a trading town very close to the caves of Milereppa, the sage in Tibet whose Tantric Buddhism have left deep impression in Tibet's culture.  
We travel from Kathmandu by road to the Frendship Bridge at the Chinese (Tibet) border near the border town of Zangmu which is known as Khasa in Nepal. Normally the drive is 5 hour to the Kodari border. The waiting transport takes us to the Immigration check post at Zangmu. If the road from Zangmu to the border is damaged you may have to walk up hill to the Immigration check post; it is about 2 hour walk (11 km).  From Zhangmu we travel through Nyalamu and to Tingri plain (4340 m) from where you can see the entire Himalayan range from the north. The views of Shishapangma, Cho-Oyu, and Everest are fantastic. From Tingri the rough road cover 70 kilometers to Everest base camp (5,200 m).  You drive through dusty road along the Rongbuk Valley which provides spectacular views of the snow caped mountain. The famous Rongbuk Monastery would be your last stop before you proceed to the base camp.
The Rongbuk monastery is situated at the lap of the lofty Mt. Everest the highest peak on earth. In the following days we acclimatize by practicing our equipment at the high altitude and establishing advance base camp at 6400 meter for the final summit attempt of Lakpa Ri (7045m). This is also a good time to familiarize yourself with other members of the group and climbing Sherpa and camp staffs.
Lakpa Ri is located very close to Everest and North Col lies on the main route to the summit of Mt. Everest. Thus it provides great views. You would virtually follow the foot steps of George Mallory, who first set foot on the mountain in 1921 in his first Everest reconnaissance. From Lhakpa La Mallory saw the North Col and the upper East Rongbuk glacier that make a long sweep of the north ridge that leads the route from the North Col to the Summit. You have to ascend a steep snow and ice face to reach North Col. Actually it is a steep walk. All members are secured to a fixed rope. Sherpa climbers accompany you to the summit and back. After the summit of Lakpa Ri (7045 m) descend to the high base camp, and then to Rongbuk. The return journey travel back to Zangmu through same road.  
Nepalese staffs prepare meals and set up camps at the base camps. Usually accommodation is in lodge with basic facilities on the way to the base camp. At the base camp we have camping facilities with sleeping and dining tent. Our camp staffs accompany you all the way from Kathmandu to Kathmandu.

Cho-Oyu lies 30 Kms west of Mt. Everest on the border of Nepal and Tibet (China). It is en-route through Nangpa La. a high himalayan pass used by Sherpa for trading with Tibet.

Appraoch route to the summit is through north-west side of the peak for which climbers need to cross Tibet through Nangpala. This passage through high mountains used to be traditional trade route to Tibet.

Cho-Oyu is the world’s sixth highest mountain. The mountain was first climbed by Hebert Tichy in 1954. The mountain is considered as one of the easiest to climb and comparatively safe, which enables climbers with determination but not necessarily a high degree of technical expertise to reach an 8,000 m summit.

A British expedition led by E. E Shiption in 1952, tried their Everest expedition equipment and oxygen on this mountain. The mountain was first climbed in Autumn 1954 by an Austrian team led by H. Tichy. Classic west ridge route from North uses base camp a Nangpa La.

Three weeks would be spent on setting base camp: this include walk in and out; Another three weeks is planned to prepare high base camp and attempt to go and summit.

Manaslu (8163m) is the 8th highest mountain in the world. This trek and climb is a complete package, equally varied, not to make tough trek and climb which requires very good physical condition. Although technically not too demanding, but requires the northeast side climb over the Naike-Col and the North Col require excellent condition. The majestic peak has attracted explorers and climbers since the beginning of the climbing of 8000 meter peaks. The way back to Kathmandu leads in six days on the 5000 m high Larkya pass into the Marsyangdi valley on the Annapurna Round. The material handling and warehouse configuration is handled by means of two high-Sherpa carriers.

The majestic peak has attracted explorers and climbers since the beginning of the climbing of 8000 meter peaks. The history of the mountain has that like all the major exploration and climb name of H.W. Tilman comes in. It is no different in case of Mt. Manaslu. And the other prominent name in the exploration of the Himalayan belt is Dr. Tony Hagen. They were the first outsider who actually saw the mountain and were tempted to climb it. The Japanese were not far behind the Europeans in the exploration. Though Colonel Robert, pioneer of trekking as business in Nepal, did see the possibility of climbing Mt. Manaslu through the Manaslu glacier earlier. It is the Japanese, under the leadership of Dr. K. Imanishi, actually tried and reached 5275 meter of the summit in 1952. The persistence attempts of the Japanese climbers in the following year and after that ultimately succeeded to climb the summit of Manaslu on May 9, 1956. At that time they had to pitch 6 camps to make their attempt successful. This route via Naike col (5600 m) and above Ice fall (6200 m), and the final camp at the plateau (6800 m) is now known as Japanese Route or normal route. Incidentally Mt. Manaslu is also the first 8000 meter peak climbed by women and again by Japanese national. Since then many expedition team have successfully climbed the mountain. Adverse weather condition and possibility of avalanche are in the mountain.
The expeditions will utilize 4 camps on the mountain.

Rice fields, gompa`s and yaks

The tour starts in Arughat, just north of the main road from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The first warm days walk take you past the terraced rice paddies and subtropical forests in the valley of the Budhi Gandaki. The villages are authentic and the trails are sometimes carved out of the sheer rock walls beside the wild river. Only later the valley opens itself so that we get great views of the various gleaming white peaks of the Manaslu massif. In the large village Samagaon we have a rest day to get used to the altitude. We therefore have time to visit the monastery. After Samagaon we go into the mountain wilderness, heading for the Larkya La (5105 meters). The last juniper we leave behind us and we begin the tiring crossing this magnificent pass. The views towards Tibet and the two jade green lakes in the depths below us are incomparable.
