Home:: Tibet:: Everest Advanced Base Camp (Everest North Face) 2013



The World's Highest Trekking... to the North Face of Everest  Following the routes of the first expeditions to attempt the rooftop of the world...

Indeed without doubt, a highlight of this trip is the visit to Everest Base Camp, and the trek to camp 3 at 6340m., where the sheer grandeur of Everest's north face you have to see to believe. This trek takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go. This adventure, the highest trek in the world, is an incredible journey to camp 3 and the base of the North Col via the East Rongbuk Glacier. Nowhere else on this planet can you hike on trail to such a high elevation by simple trekking. 
On this trip, we will follow the Friendship Highway through some of the most amazing landscape on Earth. We'll pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore

 What they said 

"We came to a halt, completely overwhelmed with astonishment. The sight of Everest wiped every thought from our minds. We forgot about rocky deserts and all our longings for other forms of beauty. We uttered neither questions nor comments, but simply stood there and gazed." 
With these words, George Leigh Mallory described his impressions on 25 June 1921, at the mouth of the Rongbuk Valley. During the third British expedition, in 1924, Mallory was to lose his life along Andrew Irvine.

: If seeing landscape is one of the highlights during the Tibet trips then also the people, culture and customs are other reasons to make this journey a great event. You can see here a Tibetan woman with her child.


"Early morning mist lifted quickly and the first snowy peaks appeared. We also had a good view back towards where we had come from. We set off early and rested near the river before the steep ascent onto the terrace above the Kama valley and into the Kangshung valley, where we were to trek for the following 2 days. The meadow floor was carpeted with flowers, with dewdrops glistening in the bright morning sun. The sun's reflection on the river, the array of colours, the snowy peaks in the background, these were experiences I shall never forget" - says Edwin Gruber who organized his trek with us on June 2003.

Yet again we will explore the great valleys around the Everest. more... (exclusive)
