Overland Track

Both Victor & Matt were extremely knowledgeable of the local area, the trail, the environment (plants & animals) as well as being good fun to spend time with. It was impressive that the food was fresh throughout the trip, deliciously cooked & it catered for vegetarian and gluten free diets within the group. Our bedding was warm & comfortable and we are already looking forward to returning to Tassie!

Lobuche East & Island Peak

Lobuche East (6119m) is one of the most challenging 'trekkers peaks' in the Everest region. It is technically demanding and requires greater commitment and climbing expertise than on Mera Peak. Our climb is combined with an ascent on nearby Island Peak (6189m) and Pokhalde (5806m). On our approach trek we appreciate the Sherpa villages en route to Gokyo Lakes before heading over the Cho La to the Lobuche East Base Camp. We plan to ascend the South Ridge to a high snow camp from where we are ideally placed to summit and also gain commanding views of Everest. Following our ascent we trek east to attempt Island Peak (Imja Tse) and Pokhalde Peak to complete this exceptional expedition in the Everest region.
