Although often classified as a trek, it involves a strenuous and challenging climb to its summit at 20,000 ft above sea level. Given its difficulty (alpine PD+) and accessibility it is the most frequently climbed peak in the Himalaya.

Sightseeing tour of the ancient Kathmandu city with its many beautiful temples and shopping courtyards. The major tourist attractions on this tour includes a visit to the Hanuman Dhoka (Hanuman Gate) which takes its name from the Monkey God, Hanuman from the epic, Ramayana The palace of the Malla Kings located in the Hanuman Dhoka is of the 14th Century and it is still retained as a ceremonial palace of the present Shah dynasty. Important traditional Royal ceremonies including the coronation of the King of Nepal are still conducted at Hanuman Dhoka Palace.Near the Hanuman Dhoka is the house of the Living Goddess Kumari – Kumari Bahal. Two painted stone Lions stand guard at the entrance. Visitors may enter the courtyard to see the Living Goddess but are forbidden to take photographs. Also visit Kasthamandap”, a temple built from the wood of a single tree from Where Kathmandu city derived its name. Continue drive to Swayambhunath Stupa – one of the protected monument sites of the Kathmandu Valley. It is situated on the top of the hill lying 4 kilometers west of Kathmandu. More than 2,500 years old, this ancient landmark is connected to the visit of Manjushree who created Kathmandu – a lake than – by draining its waters. The sage saw a celestial lotus in bloom on the top of this hill and sacrificed it. It is an important pilgrimage center as well as the center of art, architecture, religion and culture of Mahayana Buddhism. Afternoon we rest and prepare for our trek next morning.

Day 3: Kathmandu – Lukla – Phakding

Early morning transfer to the airport to fly to Lukla (2880m). This 45 minute flight provides a magnificent entry to the trek. It highlights the snowline of the Himalayan Range in the north and the rugged landing at the Lukla airport which is said to be one of the most spectacular flights in the world. Upon arrival, meet the Sherpa team and while the team reassembles the equipment for the distribution to the Porters OR Dzopke (a cross between and cow and a Yak used to carry loads) free time for tea/coffee. During this break, the guests are welcome to explore this bustling town on top of a hill with rows of houses,hotels and shops lining both sides of cobbled street. The trek starts by following the trail leading to the northwest direction through the narrow street, which immediately descends from the end of the village on a trail through the open hillside. The trail is well defined and there are many shops and lodges catering to the trekkers. A new hanging bridge made last year about 100 meters long is what we cross at the beginning of the journey. From there we follow the regular trail passing small villages of Chaunri.

Day 4: Namche Bazaar

Leave the main village and the follow the trail on the left bank of the Dudh Kosi River. It is a pleasant walk for the first half of the day as one passes through agricultural countryside, small wayside villages and a monastery. We cross the Dudh Kosi at Benkar where there are tantalizing glimpses of the snow peaks. Kusum Kanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m). Just before lunch, there is a steep climb of about 20 minutes to arrive at Monjo for Lunch. After lunch, trek up to the check post to check the permits and enter into the Sagarmatha National Park. Descend for 10 minute and then cross a suspension bridge to arrive at Jorsale (2800m). Pass through several small villages and beautiful pine forest. This is a busy trail with plenty of human interest. Our first good views are of the west ridge of Kusum Kangru (6339m). Follow the Dudh Kosi River, crossing a rickety suspension bridge, which is in a dilapidated condition, and then slowly climb up a very steep trail to Namche Bazaar. Near half waypoint, we enjoy our first views of Mt. Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7879m) and Lhotse (8383m) – the big three. The climb is for nearly 3 hours as one gain in altitude making breathing difficult due to rarified air. Arrive at a gate with a sign saying, “Welcome to Namche Bazaar” but it is very misleading as it takes another 20 minutes to arrive at the main town.Upon arrival at Namche Bazaar (3447 m) check into the lodge. This prosperous town is the largest in Khumbu. Mt. Thamserku (6648 m) and Kwangde Ri (6624 m) loom along the east and west of the village. The sacred mountain Khumbila (5707 m) dominates the skyline along the west. Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge. Duration of Trek- 5 – 5 1⁄2 hours.

Day 5: Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar

Today one can go around the town and see the busiest town in the Khumbu region. One can also go to see a small museum at the top of the hill in Namche. Dinner and Overnight at Namche Bazaar.

Day 6: Thyangboche

After breakfast visit the checkpost, sign in your permits and start a short climb till we reach a big prayer stone. From here the path levels out with just few short climbs here and there. On the right side we get dramatic views of Amadablam (6696 m) and Kangtaige (6779 m) flanked by the towering view of the Sagarmatha (Everest), Lhotse and Nuptse. Descend through the rhododendron forest, watching for the blood pheasant and Imphayan pheasant in the undergrowth.

Descending down to Imja Khola (river) for a lunch stop at Phunki (3200m), next to several large water driven prayer wheels. The afternoon is spent climbing slowly on a steep trail to the Thyangboche Monastery and one of the most beautiful spots on earth. Thyangboche lies at the base of Kangtaiga and is a classic setting with superb views back up the valley to the Ama Dablam, and the Everest poking its south west face over the huge ridgeline linking Nuptse and Lhotse. At the rear is the beautiful west face of the Tamserku (6608m) and Kang Taiga (6685m).

Day 7: Dingboche

After breakfast, set out on the trail with a short, steep descent through a forest of brich, conifer and rhododendron to the meadows of Devouche. Continue on a level trail trough forests to arrive at a suspension bridge high above the fast flowing Dudh Kosi river with fine views of Mt. Amadablam. Cross the suspension bridge and climb for another 10 minutes to arrive at a resting place.. Continue to climb till apass and then there is a more gentle walk to the village of Tangboche(3985m) which also has a monastery. The monastery lies more on the route to Phortse and is not easily reached from the lower trail and for those who desire to visit the monastery, the trail bifurcates just before the village after the pass and a hard half hour of climb up the ridge brings one to this fabled monastery. At the monastery is housed the Scalp of the Yeti which traveled the world in the 60’s. After lunch, pass through this village and take the right hand trail through the front yard of a few herders’ huts, over a stone wall. The landscape becomes very interesting as the vista opens before us and we can see the river flowing far down below as we take the trail that has been cut out along the sheer cliffs of rocks.Cross the bridge on a wooden bridge and from the bridge it is uphill for about an hour till we reach Dingboche. Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge. Duration of Trek- 6 1⁄2 hours

Day 8: Rest and acclimatization at Dingboche

As per the study on high altitude sickness, it has been found that most of the people suffer or show signs of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) from the altitude of 141400 ft/ 4000 m. Thus it is highly recommended to have a rest day to acclimatize at this altitude before starting an ascent.From the lodge in Dingboche we head up through the village, following the Imja Khola Valley. The ascent is gradual, crossing small streams, through open alpine pastures with fine views of Island Peak at the head of the valley. We will reach the Chukhung lodge in time for lunch. After lunch we walk back o Dingboche. Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge.

Day 9: Chhukung

Walk past the Dingboche village and after that the trail becomes a gentle uphill as they say in Nepali “Nepali Flat”, till we reach Chhukung. Along the way we have great views of Island Peak and the challenge that awaits us. Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge. Duration of Trek- 2 1⁄2 – 3 1⁄2 hours

Day 10: Paresya Gyab – Base Camp of Island Peak

Walk pass the small village of Chhukung. As we walk we notice the change in the trek route as we start to see more of rocks, stones and gravel’s on the way. The trek becomes tough not only because of the high altitude also because of the roughness of the route. Dinner and Overnight at Camp Duration of Trek- 2 1⁄2 – 3 1⁄2 hours

Day 11: Attack Camp – High Camp

Dinner and Overnight Camp at Attack Camp.

Day 12: Summit Island Peak

Crossing the gully above the camp the trail makes a climb for another hour to a narrow ridge, leading on to the glacier. Here it is time to rope-up and put on our crampons as the most interesting part of the climb begins with the glacier crossing. This is followed by the steep snow slope that leads onto the summit ridge.This ridge is wonderfully airy and on reaching the summit we have stunning close-up views of the south face of Lhotse looming over us whilst in the other direction, there are more dramatic mountain views. We descend along the same route, down to base camp. Dinner and Overnight at Base Camp.

Day 13: Contingency Day

Extra day in case of difficult weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances. Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge/Camp.

Day 14: Dingboche

After breakfast set out backtracking on scattered rocks and jumbled moraines to return to Dingboche. Cross Chukkung on the way and climb over the ridge past Chortens and Main walls brings us into the Chukung village and the prosperous village of Dingboche.

Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge. Duration of Trek- 3 1⁄2 hours

Day 15: Namche Bazaar via Thyangboche

Having been consistently at high altitude above 4200m most trekkers welcome the thought of returning to warmer, softer climbs and the days walk to Thyangboche is a delightful way of doing so. The route starts back through the long walled paths of the Dingboche village, and a gradual ascent along the flanks of the hills below the village before a steep drop to the Dudh Koshi. A little further, the route joins the main trail coming from Pheriche. The route then passes through the village of Pangboche (3985m). Continue to backtrack and then descend to the spectacular little bridge over the Dudh Kosi river and head through the fir and rhododendron forest for a lovely afternoon’s walk to the meadows of Devouche.From here, there is a short climb before reaching Thyangboche for lunch. After lunch we retrace our steps down hill through the beautiful forest of juniper, rhododendron and fir to Phunk Tanga. After a short break we cross the Dudh Kosi, and ascend steeply to Trashinga. If going up was tough it is equally hard to get the footing and walk down hill. From here the trail contours high above the valley to Shanasa where Tibetan traders, resident in the area, have numerous ”artefacts” and worthwhile traditional souvenirs for sale. From Sanasa, head to the end of the village and then take the right hand trail which is a lovely easy trail to reach Namche Bazaar. Here we stop for lunch. After lunch head towards the end of the bazaar and we descend steeply to the river, cross the great bridge again, and then continue back to Jorsale where we leave the national park before continuing on to our lodge at Monjo where we will overnight.

Dinner and Overnight at the Lodge. Duration of Trek- 7~ 7 1⁄2 hours

Day 16: Lukla

It is interesting to watch others starting enthusiastically on the trek ahead as we head down to the village of Phakding. Today we re-trace our steps along the Dudh Kosi, crossing to the western bank at Benkar. It is a beautiful and easy walk through blue pine and rhododendron forest, back-dropped with views of Kusum Kangaru. We will have lunch at Phakding and in the afternoon we ascend out of the river valley back to the airstrip and our lodge accommodation at Lukla. It is a delightful ending to the trip as one enters into this busy village of Lukla. In the evening, a farewell dinner may be followed by a few celebratory drinks and dancing with our Sherpa companions

Overnight at Lukla. Duration of Trek- 5 1⁄2 ~ 6 hours

Epic trip to Everest Base Camp.

"

I had the pleasure of recently being part of another wonderful trip to the Himalayas - Annapurna Base Camp - with Namaste Nomad - a wonderful small business. There are so many reasons I would always choose Namaste Nomad over any other company. Most importantly it is a true Eco friendly organisation, everything is accounted for along the treks - food, water and waste. They are also Animal friendly and only use porters for transport. This is better as it is providing more jobs for locals, and removes any animal cruelty that can occur only the trek due to pushing yaks or donkeys too hard, too far and without adequate food or water. The food during my trips was phenomenal! If you listen to Mohan and the rest of the guides you are guaranteed success at altitude. Vegetarian, local and fresh food are on the menu. Everyone can live without meat for a couple of weeks...you most definitely don't want to be eating meat in a country that doesn't do health and safety and the food has to be transported on some ones back and could be 4 or 5 days before reaching its end destination - your plate. I have never felt safer on a trip in a foreign country than with Namaste Nomad. The sherpas, porters and guides are all local and have been with the company for a long time. They are all courteous, respectful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable - many of them having submitted Everest and other Himalayan peaks many times over. Everything is taken care of from your first interaction with Mohan. Flights, hotels, transport food, etc. The cost is the best value I have seen - even better value than most as the experience you are getting is unbelievable. As if that wasnt enough, Namaste Nomad also helps out small, local people and communities around Nepal with fundraising and charity works. If you want to raise money to give back to some of the communities you know that it is going directly to where it is needed and not into the pockets of charity CEOs. Don't listen to me any more, just book a trip with Mohan and see for yourself!

Another incredible trip with an amazing company

Incredible trip! My wife and I came from the states to join Mohan and a bunch of wonderful Irish people on an island peak expedition. This was our first exposure to trekking in Nepal and technical mountaineering in general. We are rock climbers and hikers, but we trained extra hard the few months before the trip to develop good fitness and strong legs for long walks uphill. We met Mohan briefly while visiting Ireland a year earlier and felt instantly that we could trust him. Mohan is extremely experienced with trekking in the Himalayas (18yrs I think). He has connections every step of the way from hotels in Kathmandu, to flights to lukla, and in even in tea houses all along the route. This allows him to offer his clients fantastic service at a great price. Nice accommodations and food the whole time - everything is included in the cost up front so the only thing we had to think about was water which we just treated with chlorine tabs. Mohan gives great guidance to help avoid getting sick either from altitude or food. He demands good hygiene from kitchen staff and always sends his Sherpas into the kitchen to help and make sure our food is clean. The whole experience felt like a private trip with friends and not commercially organized. And really that's what it is - no middle man. Mohan genuinely cares about his clients and you will quickly become his friend. He will do everything he can to keep you healthy and acclimatized so you can have the best shot possible at meeting your goal. You won't have to worry about being confused the whole time - he keeps you well informed and is always checking to make sure you are doing well. He even coordinates with a guy in Kathmandu so they can make changes for summit attempts based on weather. Because he did this, we ended up summiting a day earlier than planned which made all the difference - I think nearly everyone failed the day before and the day after us due to snowfall, but we had 5 out of 8 summit in our group thanks to Mohan's leadership. Also if you do island peak - he won't make you walk from base camp to Chukkung after a 12-15 hr summit push, we met several people who after making it back to base camp still had a few hours of walking to get to a lodge and we really felt for them. His Sherpa staff is awesome and Mohan ensures they are well taken care of in addition to the porters/yaks. These Sherpas have more than adequate experience and are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. They even threw me a birthday party with a homemade cake along the way. They are fun, happy, and incredibly humble - always working hard to support their families. They deserve a good tip when the trip is over. Whatever you're looking for in a trek/climb - Mohan is your man. He'll work with you to make it happen. He is a friend for life now and I seriously recommend his guide services. Namaste!

Experience of a lifetime!

I travelled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad in March 2018 to trek in Langtang Valley. There were eleven in the group, along with Mohan, our guide. We spent a few days in Kathmandu to acclimatise. We visited three Unesco Heritage sites in the city. Then the trek began- an eight hour bus journey to the start of our adventure.. We trekked for eight days in the are which had been devastated by the earthquake in 2015. The trek was exhilarating, sometimes challenging- Mohan reminded us that we were in the Himalayas- always an adventure! He knew what we needed/wanted before we did! The team of sherpas and trainees were really excellent- they sorted our luggage every day... even checking under the beds in case we left anything behind; they cooked our delicious meals & served us- some of us are still dreaming of Dhal Bhat😋! They were at our side before we knew we needed a hand up or down loose rock🙄! After seven days trekking we returned to Kathmandu to wind down. It was a great experience, made special by the attention to detail of Mohan- a birthday party 🎉, a St Patrick's Day celebration to name a few. What a trip! I recommend Namaste Nomad unreservedly & will travel with Mohan again!

Langtang Valley Trek

Best company and personal guided trekking in Himalayas. I been to NEPAL few times and I have done trek in Annapurna circuit with travel company from Dublin ( not fair to say name?) That company collaborate with Nepali local company. This time I choose Namaste Nomad after friend of mine recommend Mohan from donegal ( he is nepali origin Irish citizen and previously worked in Himalayas as #sherpa and guide) I checked the website and see the cost of EBC, compare to other company from Ireland he was very cheap but his itinerary and service looks similar. It was bit hard design to take after seeing price as don't know why he is very cheap and rest are expansive. But now I can say it was the best design. After my #ebc trek with Mohan and Dawa I understand that they deal direct and no middle man. They have oxygen, emergency satellite phone, madicle kit, and we were guided by 5 time Everest summiter one of the humble guy Dawa Sherpa. I am so thankful that I made it to Everest Base Camp. Going up all food was dairy free and no meat, it was hard but great vegetrain food for healthy body and its safe and no sickness. In high altitude Mohan says meat and dairy dosent digest properly that's why many people are tummy sick and get altitude sickness in high places. Many big company doesn't care this much in details , probably no experience in field. Mohan and Dawa have great knowledge and so much caring. Mohan have great links with domestic Air and hotels and markets in Kathmandu also along the trek in tea houses it makes trip very flexible, he was able to change few places in itinerary in our demands. Instead of staying in Namche 2 night we travel to #khumjung like that didn't happen in last trip. Arrival dinner in Kathmandu was free and very well organise evening. Well breafing pre trek. Early flights in and out from lukla. No hassel at all. Luggage store in Kathmandu, Hotel moonlight is best place to stay just back of thamel and 1 minute from Everest Irish Pub 😁. Great rooms and nice beer garden in back. Sightseen was include in trip as well. Overall it was the best adventure holiday so far. I am already decided to do Meera peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad next year. I fully recommend this small but amizing company for you epic trip to Himalayas.

Everest Base camp

"

October 2016 Everest Base Camp... I went with Namaste Nomad having looked at other companies based in Ireland doing the same trek. Mohan was always available to answer questions. He himself has trekked to EBC lots of times which is reflected in his knowledge and experience. He employs Sherpa's (and pays them a fair wage !) whom are also very experienced trekkers and some have summited Everest !! they are very in-tuned into the needs (inc health needs, signs & symptoms of altitude sickness), informing us of the different peaks and opening to talking about their experiences summiting mount Everest. The weather was not in our favour for part of the trek. One morning...at 4am the cloud finally lifted; Mohan came and woke us all to share our first glance of mount Everest it was amazing. It is a well worn track to EBC and the key is to take it slowly and enjoy...live in the moment! Mohan always ensured we ate well, drank plenty of clean water & paid attention to everyone on the trek to ensure we remained healthy & safe in order to reach EBC. Mohan had arrange some touristy stuff in Kathmandu before our departure to Lukla...which was great and an opportunity to meet and get to know the group. I would recommend Mohan and his company Namaste Nomad !! I have subsequently booked a trip to Bhutan with Namaste Nomad :)

Trek to Everest Base Camp

"

I first heard of Mohan and Namaste Nomad 2 years ago and since then I have been on 3 amazing trips with them. The first one was in March 2018 when I went to Langtang in Nepal. My first time there I was excited but more than a little apprehensive. I needn’t have worried. Mohan and his team of sherpas were absolutely wonderful. Everything was taken care of, tickets, transfers, all accommodation, most meals, money exchange and advice on where and what to eat and drink. We had been told that it would be completely vegetarian and dairy free on the trek. I had no problem at all with the vegetarian part of it but thought the dairy free might be tough. It wasn’t at all. We ate the most delicious food all prepared by our sherpas using fresh mostly locally sourced ingredients. The dal boat was to die for. We were constantly reminded to drink water, use sunscreen, wear a hat etc. The scenery in langtang was spectacular, towering snow capped mountains and deep valleys with raging rivers. It was an area which had been badly hit by the recent earthquake and there were sad reminders of the damage which had been done. Overall a very good and memorable experience. June 2018 I headed off to the Picos in Spain with Mohan again. For anyone who might be reluctant to travel too far , but wants amazing scenery I would totally recommend the Picos. Somewhat similar to the Himalayas I thought, one area known as the gorge stood out for me anyway. It was breathtaking. We stayed in the most beautiful little villages, ate delicious food and drank lovely local wine. Just a little as we had to remember we were walking in the morning! In April of this year I went back again to Nepal this time to do Annapurna base camp ( usually just known as ABC). A totally different area but no less lovely. It had a lot of forest and was very fertile. As well as being our guide Mohan was a great source of information about the local people and their way of life. I never stopped asking questions!. Again great walking , lots of steps this time but we kept going and finally on Easter Sunday morning at around 8 local time we arrived into ABC. We were told that the morning was the time to see it at its best . The rising sun in such a blue sky , the snow capped Annapurna range all combined to made it such a highlight. It was so well worth it. I think the fact that I did 3 trips with mohan and his team in such a short space of time says it all and I’m certainly not finished yet. For anyone who wants a trek with a difference but at a good price I don’t think you could do much better.

Did the errigal sunrise hike. We didnt see the sun because of the mist and the Rain, but is was still a very beautiful trip to the top. Had a great guide (Malachy thanks again) and the trip was well organized by Mohan.

I took part in a trek to Annapurna Basecamp with Namaste Nomad in April 2019. I had trekked with Mohan and his team twice before- to Langtang Valley in Nepal in March 2018 and The Picos, in Northern Spain in June 2018. This was my third trip- so I wasn’t as anxious about what awaited me in Nepal! The route to Annapurna is very accessible, the walking was tough enough, I thought- a lot of steps, which are sore on the knees! We were well looked after my our guide, Mohan, and his Sherpa team, Dowa and Mingma, as well as the rest of the team. The food, as on all the trips I’ve been on, was really superb. I loved the rice, lentils, local vegetables and of course the ginger tea! The accommodation was basic but always clean and adequate. Reaching Annapurna Basecamp was the high point of the trip for me- I will never forget it! We were part of a small group, just four hikers. I was traveling with a friend. We had both been part of larger groups on our previous two trips.I think I would prefer to travel in a bigger group if/when I go on a trip like this again. It was a great experience and I recommend Namaste Nomad.

Annapurna Basecamp trip

I recently traveled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad to climb Mera Peak. This trip was an absolute amazing life experience for me. Mohan arranged everything from flights to accommodation to food and everything in between. His local knowledge was invaluable especially in Kathmandu where he even got our money changed to ensure we received the best rate. The trek itself could not have been better for acclimatisation. It’s a slightly longer route than some but gives you the best chance of summiting. Our 2 Sherpas could not have done more. They treated us like family and not just clients. They did everything they could to give us the best chance at summiting .. which the whole group did. I would definitely use NN for an future treks in the Himalayas. 10 out of 10!!
