Sherpa Everest

The Sherpa Everest trip that I was on was just excellent. The Aussies , the leaders, cook, sherpas and porters were the best. I just wish we could have had one more beautiful day in Namche so we could have gone to the Everest Hotel. One of the days we walked through 7-8 inches of snow and unfortunately we did not see the mountains. That was a day to remember. The next day it was unbelievably clear in Namche but we had to start our return towards Lukla. All in all, it was great trip.

I was amazed how well I did on the Sherpa Everest trip and I believe the Aussies and the leader were amazed too. I believe it was the way the sherpas lead us up the hills. A nice slow and steady pace along with staying in Namche for two days. Keep up the good work.

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.
