Kwangde Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks starts at Kathmandu. After spending a full day sightseeing around Kathmandu, we will take a scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip of Lukla – the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest region. From Lukla we will start our trek on a trail that passes through several villages inhabited mainly by Sherpa communities. Our trek goes along dense forest filled with rhododendron and pine trees towards Namche Bazaar – The Sherpa Capital. After spending a good day acclimatization at Namche Bazaar we will follow the trail that passes through Thame and head towards Kwangde Base Camp. We will set up one more camp at the high camp before heading towards the actual summit.
Properly acclimatized and fully equipped with all the necessary climbing gears we will follow the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts in order to overcome the challenges and technical sections. Once at the top we are rewarded with great views of world’s towering mountains including Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and the Rolwaling Himalayan Ranges. After spending quality time at the summit, we will descend to reach the base camp. From the base camp we will follow the trail that passes through Phakding to arrive at Lukla. Our incredible experience at Kwangde Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a sweeping flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu.
