Thamserku expedition commence from Lukla after 30 minutes spectacular scheduled flight from Kathmandu on a small aircraft will take you to the gateway to the Everest region then commence trek to Phakding and we continue to classical route to Namche Bazzar. We will spend two nights at Namche Bazzar for acclimatization. From Namche we take through Khumjung to Phunki Tenga then head towards Thamserku base camp. We spend couple of day at base camp for climbing training such as; how to use Oxygen, mask and regulator. Generally, three camps are set in the approach above the Thamserku base camp (4,750m), however, only two camps are used to spend the night. The climb from Base Camp to camp one is considered one the difficult days of the Mt.Thamserku expedition. We follow old grassy moraine ridges passing through a saddle and then turning to north climbing up rocky ground and through rock to the ridge where camp 1 is set up. From Camp I (5100m) your first real camp is only one and half hours walk above Yak camp. This section is marked by rock cairns and involves boulder hopping and some easy scrambling. Camp II (5600m), now for the hardest snow and ice pitches of the route. Camp III (6200m), a cold and exposed position is the start of your summit push. The Sherpa’s will often use a full climbing rope to tie our tents down as the natural shape of the mountain can at times unfortunately funnel the wind to this location. It is however the only safe flat piece of real estate within range of the summit. Since Thamserku expedition has been open numerous mountaineers climbed with our professional climbing guide with life time experience!
