Our itinerary that begin by driving into Tibet through Kordari, crossing the Himalaya through gorges of Bhote Koshi. The drive is simply awesome!! and full of excitement, we'll arrive on the other side of Himalaya from Kathmandu to Nayalam on first day. We'll spend our nights in Nayalam relaxing and hiking the hills for acclimatizing.
From Nayalam, we begin our overland travel to Chinese base camp. After arrival at Chinese Base Camp, we'll rest, acclimatize and make the necessary climb preparations before making our ascent to advanced base camp. We'll cross through steep moraines to establish Camp 1 (6730m), which should take around 4 - 6 hours depending on weather conditions and how we're feeling. We'll traverse a ridge and ascend a 50m Headwall to Camp 2 (7045m) - a hard day taking 6 - 7 hours. Our strong Sherpas will fix all ropes as require. We'll establish Camp 3 (7400m) on the southwest face, and the following day, set up for the summit. Depending on fitness, we'll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps.
It will require an extra push to reach the true summit peak on the far end of the high snowfield.
