Standing tall at an impressive 7,227 meters (23,711 feet), this peak offers a challenging but rewarding experience for mountaineers seeking to conquer its icy slopes.
The expedition typically begins in Kathmandu, where participants will undergo briefings, equipment checks, and necessary paperwork.

The trail also weaves through lush rhododendron forests, quaint villages, and rugged terrain, providing ample opportunities to immerse in the unique culture of the Tamang and Sherpa communities along the way.
As climbers ascend higher, the scenery changes dramatically, offering breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks and glaciated valleys. Acclimatization days are strategically scheduled to minimize the risk of altitude sickness and enhance the chances of reaching the summit successfully.
The climb itself is technically demanding, requiring expertise in handling ice axes, crampons, and ropes. Climbers navigate crevasses and steep sections, relying on their skills and the guidance of experienced Sherpa guides who accompany the team. The final push to the summit is both physically and mentally taxing but grants a profound sense of accomplishment as the panoramic vistas from the top are truly awe-inspiring.
