Fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gears we will follow the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts.

Once at the top we are rewarded with mind capturing views of Langtang Himalayan Ranges, Pemthang Karpo, Gangchenpo, Shishapangma that rises across the border of Tibet and several surrounding high peaks.
