Fixed Departure International Mt. Manaslu 8,163m Expedition Spring 2011

MAXIMUM: 45 Days ENTRY/ EXIT: Gorkha DEPARTURE: 09 April 2011 Manaslu lies in the Nepal Himalaya, Kali Gandaki valley. This mountain was previously known as Kutan l. 'tang' being the Tibetan word for flat place, s thereby describing the mountain's general summit. It was then renamed Manaslu which comes from the Sanskrit word "Manasa" meaning "intellect" or "soul". T. Imanishi & G. Norbu first climbed it in 1956. Many consider the three peaks of Manaslu as Japanese peaks as they were the first to reach its summit in 1956. There exist half a dozen different routes on Manaslu today. The south face of this "mountain of intellect" is arguably the toughest in climbing history. Our caravan route takes off at Sama Gaon, where incidentally Makalu is called Kambung- after a local god. It was here in this selfsame village back in 1954 that the second Japanese expedition met with bitter resistance from the locals. They blamed the presence of the heathen foreigners for the avalanches and pestilence on the valley. They felt that Japanese had insulted the gods dwelling in the mountains thereby angering them into creating such adverse conditions. Short note about climbing route: Camp 1 - 6,730m - After 6-7 hours walk we reach in camp 2 through crossing many snowy slopes by fixing ropes in the places of crevassed. Camp 2 - 7,045m - After 5-6 hours we reach camp 3 via steep ascent leading to very gentle ground below the northwest ridge. Camp 3 - 7,400m - From Camp 3, it takes 9-12 hours to reach on the summit. The situation of the groups/climbers' progress and the condition of the physical fitness; and also the favorable condition of the weather depends the climbing ahead. Climbing Sherpa guide for Himalayan: We facilitate highly professional, well trained and qualified climbing Sherpa’s for your expeditions. They are very useful in your each and every step of support, which makes your climbing easier to restore your strained energy and it gives you vigorous strength for your next day's climbing. Note: If you have your private group 10-15, please e-mail us to know the price and detail of expedition. If you are 01-04 and looking for a group to join, visit our fix-departure expedition information. Mt. Manaslu Expedition 8163m Itinerary Day 01 Arrival in Kathmandu airport and transfer to hotel We meet you at the airport; look for a sign with your name on it. Phil and Jamie will meet you in Kathmandu and introduce the crew. Day 02 Rest day at Kathmandu preparation for expedition This is a free day in Kathmandu for relaxing, packing and preparing. You can leave any gear which you don't need during the expedition at the hotel. Day 03 Drive from Kathmandu to Arughat 570m We leave early by private bus packed with us and our crew. Leaving on the main road to Pokhara we turn off for Dhading and take a rough road to the end, where we have lunch. The afternoon is thru beautiful (and hot) low country, endless fields. Once upon a time in Nepal very trek started like this. Flat land, wandering through lush green paddies, caked in sweat, resting under pipal and banyan trees, with those white giants on the horizon; so count your blessings as we wade a side river and stumble deliriously into the tropical shade of the bazaar of Arughat. This can be a longer day, or as in 2007 the road was so bad that we took one extra day to get to Arughat. Day 04 Trek from Soti Khola 730m to Korsani Khola Today will be hot, but classic lower middle hills trekking as we meander along the river. Day 05 Trek from Korsani Khola to Machha Khola 930m The country changes, the broad valley narrows and at times the trail is cut into the steep valley side, which is densely forested. We pass a number of small villages, tucked into the hillside, until we reach a widening of the valley, opposite the point where a large tributary stream enters the Buri Gandaki. The terraced farmland here belongs to the village of Lapuabesi. We descend once again to the wide, sandy riverbed and follow a path which runs below the steep, craggy valley side. At length, we have to climb up once again on a trail to Machha Khola. We camp outside the village, which has a number of teashops. Day 06 Trek from Machha Khola to Jagat 1370m A few hours of walking by tobacco and buckwheat fields, past rocks washed smooth by the river, we reach the hot springs in the centre of the small, terraced village of Tatopani, where we have plenty of time to soak our grungy bodies in the gushing hot water, and then perhaps go for a swim in the icy river below, drying off on the wonderful river-side beach. A gentle climb through the woods past some spectacular waterfalls, across another suspension bridge and through a short section of forest path and we reach Doban, where we stop for lunch. Above Doban, the Buri Gandaki descends in an impressive series of steep rapids. Here, our trail climbs high above the river to descend through what appears to be a huge gateway into some secret place; in front the valley widens, the river calms, and we splash through streams before coming into our camp below Jagat, the entrance to the Manaslu park. It is worth wandering around this beautiful, paved village, where proud villagers have recorded how much they contributed to these paving schemes; Jagat people love their village! Our campsite is impressively clean and grassy, with cold beers available at the shop next door. Day 07 Trek from Jagat to Philim 1570m After descending a long series of stone steps to the river, we climb a terraced hill to Saguleri, from where we can see the impressive Sringi Himal, 7187m. We pass through the charming, paved village of Sirdibas, where the local children might be selling oranges. Crossing the river again via a long suspension bridge at Gata Khola, the path splits, with the right-hand branch heading off towards the Ganesh Himal. Our route continues upstream, and again we have a steep climb to reach Philim and its Japanese sponsored school. We will either camp here or at a campsite an hour further, Eklai Bhatti. Day 08 Trek from Philim to Deng 1540m We pass through Eklai Bhatti, and then on through a narrow, dramatic gorge section with towering walls, and past a thundering waterfall just above us on the right of the trail. We cross the river three more times in the next two hours (on even more sketchy bridges, Nepali style) to avoid the difficult valley sides, and then leave the gorge, climbing at one point on steps cut into tree trunks, to the small village of Deng. This is the start of the lower Nubri region called Kutang, where the people are ethnically Tibetan but speak a different dialect than the people of upper Nubri. We camp just below the village, and get fresh greens from the family that owns the land. It's worth a visit to the upper floor of their house above us, perhaps for a glass of local 'chang', or Tibetan beer, and for a chat around the hearth. It starts to feel like a piece of old Tibet at last. Day 09 Trek from Deng to Ghap 2165m The valley is still steep-sided and impressive; we cross to the village of Lana, and start to see mani stones (prayers etched onto wayside rocks), a sure sign that we are entering another of the tiny Tibetan footholds that mark the high Himalayan places. After about three hours, we reach Ghap, where we set up camp for the night at the house of some wonderful villagers. The egg-shells strung above their 'tea-house' door prevent the evil spirits from entering the house. The sun goes down early here, so we will cross the small bridge spanning the Buri Gandaki and trek steeply up for 45 minutes to the village of Chaak, where the son of the tea-house owner lives with his family. There is a small, deserted gompa, carved mani stones (the style here is distinctly different that most other Tibetan Buddhist regions), and some Tibetans from Samdo who graze their yaks here. In the village, they will be drying their maize to grind into flour, and then trade with the people of upper Nubri, and we might be invited into the son's house for some Tibetan salt-butter tea and roasted maize on the cob. Look out across the river for views of the village of Prok perched on the plateau jutting over the river below us. From Chaak, you can trek further to Kwak, and there is a trail up to Shringi Himal base camp. Day 10 Trek from Ghap to Lho 3180m Today is a wonderful trekking day; after passing through the seemingly deserted village of Nambachhe, planted with fields of barley and lined with mani walls, we ascend through a dense, cool forest for an half an hour to Namrung, at 2540 meters, where we will stop for a cup of chai. A few hours later, we reach the village of Lihi at 2840 meters, a substantial altitude gain. The air is pleasantly cool, and we stop for a breather before heading on the Sho, which we can see on the ridge ahead, for lunch on the deck of a local house. Look for the bear claw on the upper deck of the house. From Sho, the views of Ngadi Chuli are spectacular, and further on, towards Lho, we are finally treated to views of Manaslu itself; quite an impressive afternoon! Day 11 Trek from Sama Goan 3525m We gain altitude to take us into alpine territory and increasing mountain views. There are more mani walls and three more crossings of the Buri Gandaki on our route to Namrung, a great place for morning chai in the Manaslu lodge, run by friendly Tibetan family; check out their prayer area and masks! Above this village the valley opens out and there are extensive pastures. We are climbing climb gently now, cross a large stream flowing down from the Lidanda Glaciers, and reach the picturesque Tibetan village of Sho at 3000m. We may camp at Shyala, or push on to Sama Gaon; from either there are incredible views of Manaslu. Sama Gaon, or Ro, as the locals call it, sits in a bowl at the foot of the pastures leading to the high peaks. The people settled here from Tibet over 500 years ago and there are two gompas dating from this time with unique architecture, built of wood. The Tibetan villages here have entrance gates which are very distinctive from Ladakh and Tibet, and they maintain an active trade with their coreligionists in Tibet (notice the Chinese brandy and beer on sale). If the weather is good, you will see the village women weaving wool (baal) from Tibet into gowns - which are then traded back to Tibet Days 12 Rest day at Sama Gaon for acclimatization Rest day at explore hill side and make a good physical condition to an acclimatization for expedition. Days 13 Trek from Sama Gaon to Manaslu Base Camp Today, we walking on ascending for manaslu base camp and our Sherpa staff make a camp site over there. Day 14 Manaslu Base Camp to High Camp Day 15-35 (21 days) Climbing period of Manaslu 8,163m We follow a cautious acclimatization schedule at base camp before taking our first trip up the Manaslu glacier. The climbing begins immediately out of base camp as we step onto the Manaslu Glacier. The route will be heavily crevassed and we will place bamboo marker wands and fix rope over the more dangerous sections. The climb from base camp to camp one takes between 2-4 hours. Camp one sits on a protected shoulder at the head of the Manaslu glacier at the foot of the North Peak, a separate satellite mountain of Manaslu. The route continues up steep slopes which lessen as the route progresses, weaving between seracs. There will be fixed ropes in place on most of the route from camp one to camp two. This is the most technical section of the climb and takes between 3-6 hours. Some strong climbers skip the night at camp one on their second trip up the glacier and climb directly from base camp to camp two. Camp two is located at the top of the serac section of the climb on a somewhat flat area safe from danger, although this campsite can receive a lot of snow accumulation. The route continues up the upper glacier before increasing in steepness as we start to approach camp three. This camp is notorious for experiencing strong winds and we need to make sure our tents have bombproof anchors. The climb from camp two to camp three is one of the shortest on the mountain and takes between 1.5-3 hours. Camp three is placed on a flat saddle that sits just below the col, hence the reason this campsite receives strong winds frequently. The route continues up the remaining glacier weaving through seracs with some short steep sections of ice and snow which will have fixed rope in place for safety. There is an exposed traverse with remains of past expeditions in the shape of old abandoned and destroyed tents which takes us to high camp, camp four. The climb from camp three to camp four takes between 4-8 hours. Summit day will start late evening or early morning depending on the conditions and the route heads up a moderate slope immediately out of high camp before arriving at the first of the summit plateaus. The route climbs three separate tiered plateaus before arriving at the final pyramid slope. From here another short steep slope below the immediate summit is climbed until reaching the fore summit. The true summit is reached with an exposed technical traverse for around 70 meters in linear distance and this section needs to have fixed rope in place. The climb from camp four to the summit takes between 4-8 hours with 2-4 hours for the descent to camp four. During this expedition the team will be supported by a 1:2 Sherpa to climber ratio. Team members can travel independently in groups or pairs lower on the mountain and will have Sherpas to accompany them at all times above camp three. All of our Sherpas are 8,000-meter experienced and some have reached the summit of Manaslu.

Manaslu experience it is a must, especially if you have no previous experience in climbing above 8000m. A Sherpa-guide will enormously enhance your safety and chances of successful summiting. He will carry the supply of your oxygen to the top (and help you down if need be). The only drawback is he will cost quite a sum. But certainly you will get a very good value for your money – at the bad concourse of circumstance it might be your life’s value.

Fixed Departure International Mt. Shishapangma 8,012m Expedition Spring 2011

Fixed Departure International Mt. Shishapangma 8,012m Expedition Spring 2011 MAXIMUM: 43 Days ENTRY/ EXIT: Zhangmu Fixed DEPARTURE: April 2011 Shishapangma is the 14th highest mountain on the planet. It is called Gosainthan in Nepali. It is located in central Himalaya and lies totally in Tibet. The route is straightforward climb and not technically demanding. It is the youngest mountain among 8000m peaks. Mt. Shishapangma 8012 m was first climbed by H. Ching and Nine Climbers in 1664. Mount Shishapangma expedition begins after your arrival in Kathmandu. Our team staff will welcome you at Kathmandu airport and transfer you to the Hotel. Next day we will have a meeting at our official expedition crews and discuss about the expedition and check required expedition equipments for safety purpose. We will have all expedition permits and required documents in our hand. We will just collect passport from all climbers and make Tibet visa on the same day. According to the expedition program team will drive to Zangmu via Aranico highway and Friendship Bridge. At the friendship bridge staff from Tibet Mountaineering Association will be waiting for our expedition group. Expedition team members will drive on 4WD land cruiser and expedition equipments will be carried by truck. After driving 3 days (1 night in Zangmu and 2 Nights in Nylam) we will reach Mount Shishapangma Base camp. Chinese call it Chinese Base Camp. Shishapangma base camp is situated at altitude of 4600m. We will set camp here for 2 days to acclimatize and check expedition equipments once more. After, we will walk for long day to reach Shishapangma advance base camp. It is situated at altitude of (5400 m). Short note about climbing route: Camp 1 - 6,730m - After 6-7 hours walk we reach in camp 2 through crossing many snowy slopes by fixing ropes in the places of crevassed. Camp 2 - 7,045m - After 5-6 hours we reach camp 3 via steep ascent leading to very gentle ground below the northwest ridge. Camp 3 - 7,400m - From Camp 3, it takes 9-12 hours to reach on the summit. The situation of the groups/climbers' progress and the condition of the physical fitness; and also the favorable condition of the weather depends the climbing ahead. Climbing Sherpa guide for Himalayan: We facilitate highly professional, well trained and qualified climbing Sherpa’s for your expeditions. They are very useful in your each and every step of support, which makes your climbing easier to restore your strained energy and it gives you vigorous strength for your next day's climbing. Note: If you have your private group 10-15, please e-mail us to know the price and detail of expedition. If you are 01-04 and looking for a group to join, visit our fix-departure expedition information. International Mt. Shishapangma Expedition 8,012m Itinerary Day 01 Arrival in Kathmandu airport and transfer to hotel We meet you at the airport; look for a sign with your name on it. Our official crew will meet you in Kathmandu and introduce the crew. Day 2-3 Rest days at Kathmandu Two free days in Kathmandu for relaxing, packing and preparing. You can leave any gear which you don't need during the expedition at the hotel. We keep your international air ticket at the office in case any changes need to be made while you are climbing. We can arrange a sightseeing tour, if you wish. Day 4 Drive from Kathmandu via Kodari to Zhangmu (2300m) / Nyalam Hotel F/B We leave Kathmandu early in the morning to cover the123km to reach the Nepal-Tibet Border. After completing the immigration formalities at the border, we drive towards Nyalam. Moving up a series of incredibly steep switchbacks, which passes through a mossy gully with cascading waterfalls, we reach Nyalam. Day 5 Drive from Zhangmu to Nyalam (3780m), Guest House Moving up a series of incredibly steep switchbacks, which passes through a mossy gully with cascading waterfalls, we reach Nyalam. Day 6 Rest day at Nyalam for Acclimatization It would be wise to spend a day resting and acclimatizing in Nyalam before heading up higher. A short way out of town there is a small temple, Nyalam Pelgye Ling, which is associated with the eleventh and twelfth century poet-lama Milarepa. Day 7 Drive from Nyalam to Tingri (4340m) We proceed towards 'Chinese' base camp. The views of Shishapangma are wonderful from this grassy camp near a stream. Day 8 Rest day at Tingri for acclimatization) Day 9 Drive from Tingri to Chinese Base Camp (4800m From Tingri we move to Chinese Base camp Day 10 Drive from Chinese Base Camp to Base camp 5000m Day 11 Rest day at Base Camp Day 12 Base Camp to Advance Base Camp (5600m) We arrive at Advance Base Camp. We hold a puja, a ceremony to show respect for the mountain. The puja is held on an auspicious day decided by the Sherpa. Days 13-38 (26 days) Climbing period of Shishapangma (8,012m) The expedition leader in discussion with the team members and Sherpa manages the day to day running of the expedition. The Sherpa carry the majority of the equipment to establish the camps leaving us to familiarize ourselves with the mountain and get more acclimatized, a long process. There are several different methods to ready for yourself for the summit bid, we will discuss them in detail on the mountain. The basic plan is to spend 3-4 days at ABC then take a 6-7 day trip up on the mountain sleeping as high as Camp 2, 7100m. Logistically, it takes some sound preparation and organization to ensure all the camps are set up with the appropriate supplies. Then we need a window of good weather for the summit attempt and often this is a waiting game. From Camp 3, 7500m, we have a spectacular view that stretches way into the distance to the north and also we can see Everest and Cho Oyu. Summit route options: Summit day means a very early start. The best route to the true summit is crossing the face (in green above, and the picture to the right) but we judge at the time whether this is safe. The route in yellow goes first to the Central summit, which we must fix ropes to. From there to the true summit is a knife-edged ridge that is rarely in condition for traversing, although it is only nasty for less than a rope length. The other possibility is a new route (in blue): from Camp 3 we descend a little onto a broad plateau and will probably have to put a camp there. The slopes from there on are moderate although there are a few crevasses. Once we have summitted we clear the mountain of our gear and rubbish and head out. We are likely to summit prior to day 39 but have plenty of time to wait out for the best conditions. Day 39 Drive from Base Camp to Tingri hotel Day 40 Drive from Tingri to Zhangmu, hotel F/B We drive from the Base Camp to Zhangmu. Day 41 Drive from to Kathmandu, transfer to hotel B/B We should arrive in Kathmandu late afternoon or evening ready to enjoy the good restaurants. Day 42 Rest day at Kathmandu At leisure Day 43 Departure to your destination Our driver and airport representative will drive you to the airport in time for your flight back home. We ensure you that you will leave Kathmandu with cherishing memories and an experience of a lifetime.
