Trekking Peaks offer a realistic possibility for anyone who has longed to experience the flavour and challenge of a Himalayan mountaineering expedition without incurring the usual time and costs.
up to 18
Our experienced climbing sirdars and sherpa teams are among the best in Nepal, and will ensure that your climb is a safe and enjoyable challenge and that you are properly acclimatised before embarking on your summit attempt.
A minimum of two people are required for all peak treks for the purposes of applying for permits.
Yala Peak and Pokalde are not technically difficult, but are classed as trekking peaks.
Island Peak, Lobuje East, Mera Peak and Teng Kongma all incur significant altitude and we advise that clients who participate in these treks are experienced trekkers who have been to altitude before.
For all these trips, experience of winter mountaineering skills is a requirement. The skills you may need should be second nature to you, rather than something that you are trying to learn whilst at altitude. We can advise on suitable winter skills courses.
All of these expeditions offer rewarding trekking, so if one or more of your party does not wish to climb the peak they can still take part in the trip.

YALA PEAK (5,503m, 22 day trip)
This adventurous trek combines the beautiful scenery of the Langtang Valley with the chance to climb 5503m Yala Peak. The ascents of Yala and nearby Tsergo Ri are within the capability of those who have fully acclimatised and have basic winter skills experience.
Although classed as a trekking peak, this is one of the easier peaks which falls into that category. From their summits the incredible scenery of the upper valley can be viewed in its entirety.
POKALDE PEAK (5,806m, 21 day trip)
Pokalde, a 5806m peak in the stunning Everest region, offers fit trekkers an extra challenge after the rewards of the trek to Kala Pattar and the base camp of the world’s highest summit. Trekking the classic route to Everest Base Camp, we camp just below the Kongma La, where we have several days set aside to explore and climb Pokalde
Pokalde requires no special technical skills, but because of the altitude and chance of snow, it is sufficiently challenging for those who undertake it and winter skills experience is required. The climb is optional and an easier return route to Lukla is an alternative. For those who reach the summit, the views that unfold in clear weather are ample reward for the effort.
ISLAND PEAK (6,189m, 20 day trip)
At 6189m, Island Peak is an accessible and technically relatively easy trekking peak. The amphitheatre of peaks that surround Island Peak are second to none, with the Nuptse/Lhotse Wall, the massive south face of Lhotse 8501m, Lhotse Shar 8383m, and Makalu 8463m in the distance to the east. To the south is the impressive wall of Baruntse 7220m leading to Ama Dablam 6856m. Taweche 6542m can be seen in the distance to the west. Previous climbing or mountaineering experience is required since we will be using ropes, crampons and axes – sometimes on exposed ground, and competence on such terrain is needed.
This trip can be extended by a further 8 days to include a trek via the stunningly beautiful blue waters of Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp. Enquire for more details and pricing.
MERA PEAK (6,476m, 25 day trip)
At 6476m, Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. When this is combined with the fact that it offers unparalleled views and stunning panoramas it makes this trekking peak one of the most sought after in Nepal. Mera Peak is not a technical trekking peak, but the altitude adds to the difficulty.
We fly to Tumlingtar and trek in to the Hinku Valley over the Surkie La. This is not only excellent for acclimatisation purposes but also means that we will see few other groups giving us that wilderness experience that many seek. This circular journey gives us the chance to explore different regions. Acclimatisation and contingency days are included.
Base Camp is in a stunning setting but the views from the summit are perhaps unrivalled by any other trekking peak. The panorama takes in Kangchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Everest, the Nuptse/Lhotse ridge and the unclimbed south face of Lhotse. This is one of the most glorious views in the whole of Nepal!
THE KHUMBU EXPLORER (6,189m, 29 day trip)
Consisting of a combined trek that includes Lobuje East, Island Peak and Everest Base Camp.
At 6189m, Island Peak is an accessible and technically relatively easy trekking peak. The amphitheatre of peaks that surround Island Peak are second to none, with the Nuptse/Lhotse Wall, the massive south face of Lhotse 8501m, Lhotse Shar 8383m, and Makalu 8463m in the distance to the east.
To the south is the impressive wall of Baruntse 7220m leading to Ama Dablam 6856m. Taweche 6542m can be seen in the distance to the west. Previous climbing or mountaineering experience is required since we will be using ropes, crampons and axes – sometimes on exposed ground, and competence on such terrain is needed.
KANGCHENJUNGA & TENG KONGMA (6,225m, 29 day trip)
The Kangchenjunga area is often rated as one of the best areas for long and remote treks in Nepal because of its contrasting scenery and cultures.
This rewarding trek offers the chance to climb Teng Kongma, a peak in the spectacular mountains that straddles the border of Nepal and neighbouring Sikkim. Towering over the region is 8598m Kangchenjunga, the third highest summit in the world. Our trek to the north base camp of this awesome mountain follows a route pioneered in 1979 by Doug Scott and his fellow climbers as they prepared for the third ascent of the summit.
