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.

Solu Khumbu is the most famous region of Nepal and quite possibly of the Himalaya. Not only is it the area of Everest, the world’s highest mountain, it is also the home of 154,622 Sherpas, according to 2001 Nepal census. The Sherpas are undoubtedly the most legendary of mountain people. Sagarmatha (Mother of the Universe) known by the nepalese, and as the Tibetans know Everest as  “Chomolungma”  meaning Goddess mother of mountains. Everest is the highest peak in the world (8856 m) above sea level. Khumbu region also boasts other 8,000 meter peaks including Lhotse and Cho-Oyu, whilst Makalu can be seen barely a ridge away.
His Majesty’s Government of Nepal announced the establishment of Sagarmatha National Park in the year 1973 in recognition of its unique status with regard to its mountains, people, religious practice, as well as its flora and fauna. The park is situated in the north-eastern region of Nepal in Solu Khumbu district and comprises an area of approximately 113 square kilometres.
There are four major valleys with some relatively level areas in this Park. Generally the weather is cold depending on the altitude and month of the year.
The lower valleys are mostly covered with blue pine, fir and juniper forests while in the area between 3,600 metres and 4,200 metres, birch and rhododendron forest are commonly found. The common mammals of the Park are musk deer, Himalayan Tahr and Serow; smaller mammals such as marmot and pika are found in the higher region.

The high point in this trek is the majestic view of Mt. Everest and surrounding lofty Himalayan peaks in the back drop of deep blue sky. The grandeur of nature that you see and you summit the world's highest peak would be one of the most memorable times in your life. After completion of your journey you follow same trail back to Lukla. The trek ends with flight to Kathmandu. 

After the British Swiss made 2 serious attempt to reach the summit; in 1952 Raymond Lambert with Tenzing reached 8500 meter in their second attempt. As a result they prepared unwittingly Teng Sherpa for the British expedition to help them summit the peak of Everest in 1953 for the first time in the history of human being. Since then the attention on Everest have kept on increasing every year.

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. 

Many mountaineers looking at a future attempt of Everest or other mountain objectives are now focusing on Manaslu as a suitable first-time 8,000 meter peak.
 

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.

Although technically not too demanding, but requires the northeast side climb over the Naike-Col and the North Col excellent condition. 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.

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.

Climbing Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, is something many people can only dream about. There are a lot of things to do to prepare for such a climb, and for many, it is just too much physical exertion. For those who are capable, there are a few things to think about before making the plans to actually make the climb.

The Tibetan side is the north side of Mount Everest. The altitude of Nepal's Everest Base Camp is 5,364 meters (17,598 feet). A lot of climbers and travelers camp there, and the gray/white landscape of the Khumbu Icefall makes a special picture in the otherwise bleak landscape. However, the northern side, in Tibet, is more suitable for first time travelers to climb the mountain, as the Chinese government will offer to give you a tourist guide. Professional climbers prefer the Tibet side for the weather and for the ease of access. China has completed a full-length asphalt road that runs from Lhasa right up to EBC, which makes access much easier. In Nepal, it is a 10-day trek up the Khumbu Valley to the south-side base camp. There have also been many other changes made in the route. The ropes are better fixed, all the way to the summit, and the team of rangers keep the area free of litter, making it a much better route altogether. And on top of that, the China-Tibet Mountaineering Association provide registered expeditions with transport all the way to EBC, thus controlling all the climbing on the mountain. The CTMA are doing everything they can to limit the number of accidents when climbing.

From the north side of Everest, in Tibet, the northeast ridge route begins. Expeditions climb up to the Rongbuk Glacier, and on the gravel plain just below the glacier they set up a Base Camp at 17,060 feet (5,200meters). To get to Camp 2, at around 20,000 feet (6,000 meters) climbers ascend the Rongbuk Glacier up to the base of Changste. Camp 3 (Advanced Base Camp) is situated below the North Col at 21,300 feet (6,500 meters). Climbers climb the glacier to the base of the Col and use fixed ropes to reach the 23,000 foot (7,010 meters) high Camp 4. Climbers then ascend to set up Camp 5 at around 25,500 feet (7,775 meters). The route goes up the north face through a series of gullies and steepens into a slabbed terrain before reaching Camp 6 at 27,000 feet (8,230 meters). Climbers will make their final summit push from Camp 6 in three steps, which end at 28,870 feet. The climbers must first make their way through those three stepped rock bands before reaching the final stage which slopes about 50 to 60 degrees to the summit.
