The ultimate dream of many mountaineers is to one day take on one of the biggest mountaineering challenges possible – to climb Mt Everest – so why not climb it with one of the premier teams in the industry, Expedition Base.
In far eastern Nepal, away from the crowds surrounding Mt Everest, lies an understated Himalayan giant: Kanchenjunga, the 3rd highest mountain in the world and 2nd highest in Nepal.
Lhotse sits quietly alongside Mt Everest. They are connected by the South Col. Lhotse was previously thought by local people to be a minor peak of Everest, hence its name, Lhotse, meaning ‘South Peak’.
Makalu is situated approximately 19km to the south east of Mt Everest in the Makalu-Barun National Park bordering Tibet, China. This mountain is the 5th highest mountain in the world and was first climbed in 1955.
Standing 20 km to the west of Mt Everest on the Nepal-Tibet, China border, Cho Oyu is a true Himalayan giant.
Dhaulagiri is the 7th highest mountain in the world and is located in western Nepal, not far from Annapurna (the world’s 10th highest mountain).
Standing as a relatively isolated 8000m peak in Nepal’s central mountain region, Manaslu (8,156m) is the world’s 8th highest mountain.
Shishapangma is the only 8,000m peak that sits wholly within Tibet (China), located in south-central Tibet (China). Cho-Oyu and Everest both sit on the border with Nepal.
