A veteran of the Himalayas, sumiteer of Mt. Everest, and son of legendary Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, Jamling Tenzing Norgay will lead the group in 2020.
why this route?
Summiting a Himalayan peak can still be an incredibly rewarding challenge if done the right way. We've chosen to climb Lobuche East (6,119m), a less technically demanding peak, that offers quieter slopes and arguably the best views of any mountain in the World; with incredible vistas of the surrounding region and Tibet with Everest looming nearby.
the perfect TREK
FOR MIND, BODY & PLANET
Part of the inspiration behind Tenzing Natural Energy (our Trek Partner) came while they visited this region of Nepal famed for its spiritual feel and steeped in tradition. For the Trek, we're going back to where their journey started. We'll be spending acclimatisation days meditating with local monks, and visiting the legendary temples frequented by Sherpas, Tenzing Norgay included, before they attempt to summit Everest.
Tenzing Natural Energy takes their ingredients from nature. Together we know it's right to give back. On the trek, we'll be contributing to the work Tenzing already started with the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC) to help tackle litter in the Himalayas.
It's not a technically demanding Trek, but you will need to be in good physical shape. That means you're comfortable hiking around 16km on consecutive days, and can deal with higher altitudes.
Our ticket price is roughly $5,000USD. For a 18 day Trek, led by some of the best guides in the World, including Jamling Tenzing Norgay, the costs for this Trek are extremely competitive. To find out more about how much the trip costs, request a call back from us.
Led by Jamling Tenzing, son of legendary Sherpa Tenzing and one of the first two men to summit Everest, this Trek is unique. It's not just a trek to Everest Basecamp and a climb of Lobuche East, we'll be having guided days of meditation with monks in the spiritual epicentre of the region, and brainstorming with the main local charities about plans to help improve the local ecosystem.
We'll be going from warmer, forested valleys, to -20°c at the peak of Lobuche. So, while we'll provide some of the climbing and camping equipment, you'll need to bring some things like sleeping bags. Request a call back to find out more about what will, and won't be provided.
We'll be going in Spring 2020. For exact dates, get in touch with us!
Numbers haven't been finalised yet, but, it'll be somewhere between 6-16 trekkers, not including guides and Sherpas.
