In this trip, we decided to combine two experiences; to go along great nepalese expeditions and to contemplate Everest from the energy of its basecamp. For the one who want, the ascent of a 6000m is an option.

This way, the group will be mix. Perfect to mix the passions and the objectives that can be different between partners! For some, Everest basecamp trek and the visit of this awesome valley will be a memorable experience. For other, the ascent of the Island Peak will be a bigger challenge that will push them beyond their comfort zone (see expedition Island Peak).

Why choosing us to realize this mythical trek in Nepal? Being a company specialized in alpinism as well as our philosophy separates us from the other company who offers only trek. Firstly, we spend more time in the area , will realize some small summits near 5000 meters and we will spend few days at the Island Peak basecamp. Also, thanks to our guides with a higher level of certification, the mentorship to our clients is favored and greatly adapt to the situation. Small groups makes the experience unique and allow us to gives you the opportunity to be a part in the expedition process.

Two extra days have been added to prevent bad situation such as the flight from Lukla to Katmandu, so we make sure we do not miss our flight home from Katmandu.
