The Thamserku expedition itinerary covers the highlights of the Everest massif, villages, and the glacier. Mount Thamserku peak climbing is situated in the Mahalangur mountain range into the depth of Everest mountain, Solukhumbu District, Nepal.

Thamserku peak is equally popular as a Thamserku expedition in Khumbu Himalayas. Splendid view of Everest (8,850m), Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (9,501m), Lhotse Shar (8,383m), Makalu (8,475m), Baruntse (7,720m), and Cho-Oyu, is possible to see from the summit.

Usual ascent to the Thamserku climbing route is marvelous. Barry Bishop, Mike Gill, Wally Romanes, and Mike Ward are first-time ascenders. Even in normal conditions, Thamserku is difficult to climb. Professional climbers should strive for this mountain, though it is partially saved with fixed ropes.

According to our past climbers, we have designed the Thamserku climbing itinerary cautiously to allow for gradually ascending and proper acclimatization. The best season for the Thamserku group to climb is either March to May or September to mid-November months. If the Thamserku itinerary is not suitable for you, we modify the Thamserku trek itinerary on your request and the duration of the expedition holiday.

Question: What sort of accommodation and Food can I expect this expedition?.

Answer: Basically, we serve you a tent accommodation along the entire journey however sometimes you can stay at a guest house below the base camp. As you progress higher especially above the base camp, you’ll likely stay in tented camps set up by our expedition team.

These camps provide basic but comfortable accommodations, usually including sleeping tents, dining tents, and sometimes even shower tents. As you move closer to the summit, you may stay in higher camps that are more Spartan and focused on providing shelter and safety rather than comfort.

Likewise, our professional cook cooks a delicious range of mostly vegetarian meals. They are Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, curry rice, bread, soups, and fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season). However meals are often more varied and substantial, including a mix of local and Western dishes to provide ample energy for the strenuous activity serve with tea/coffee.
