More than an expedition, a trip to a gap on the map!!
Can you imagine entire regions full of valleys, with an amount of six thousand meters mountains that have no names?
This expedition is a path to the unknown, to summits and peaks without name in remote and wild valleys. Nyinbas, Bynsis, Limipas, Khampas and Chhetris lost tribes with little contact with Westerners. People who have helped us in the first incursions in the area, shepherds and nomads who dwell in a virgin landscape and that allows us not only to live in our own person the true meaning of mountaneering but also that of the word exploration.
A white canvas in the territory where to leave some ephemeral footprints, but that will leave us an indelible mark on our hearts. There is room for all those who want to just walk through the unknown valleys, those who want to make a first ascent to a virgin top or those who want to draw the slopes with skis or snowboard.
Arrival to Kathmandu.
Transfer to the hotel. Afternoon free, we can visit the famous Buddhist stupa of Boudhnath, get lost in the streets of the Thamel and dine our first Dal bhat (the most traditional dish of Nepalese food).
Day 2: Transfer to the airport and flight to Nepalgunj.
Day 3: Transfer to the airport and flight to Simikot. Start of approach trekking
Approach trekking .
Approach trekking to the Base Camp. As in the first Nepalese expeditions, we will have to move with all the material, food and shops to be able to spend the whole expedition, in this tour we do not expect to find villages, much less hotel or lodges.
Twelve days of exploration.
The trekking team will be dedicated to exploring some of the many virgin valleys in the region. We can also make an easy glacier route of several days to the base of some of the many six thousand wild mountains of the region.
Mountaineering / Alpine Ski / Splitboard:
This base camp opens up infinite possibilities on mountains of five and six thousand meters of altitude. From here each person can think about their own goal independently or join the ascension plan that we are going to propose. The most important thing is to know that we are exploring, that the knowledge of that mountain range is very limited and that we must navigate those oceans of uncertainty that will allow us to give a little more light to those unknown valleys.
It is a great area for mountain skiing or splitboard, disciplines that still do not colonize the illusions of opening new mountaineering pages that own their time of their rhythm and their value.
Dare to have your own ideas, with that rare quality called imagination and the other even more strange called courage. Be one of those who dare to make things happen.
Trekking back to Kathmandu and end of the trip
Days 21 to 23: Trekking back to the bottom of the valley to Simikot.
Days 24 and 25: Return to Kathmandu
Day 24: Morning flight to Nepalgunj and second flight to Kathmandu. Transfer back to the hotel.
Día 25: Free day in Kathmandu. We can spend the day making a last cultural visit, go shopping in the Thamel or just rest and enjoy the last night in Nepal with a good dinner.
Día 26: Transfer to Kathmandu airport
We can take advantage of the first hour of the morning to make the last purchases. They will pick us up at the hotel to take us to the airport.
Early transfer option to the airport for a tourist flight to Everest and return to the hotel for breakfast. (Not included in the base Price).
It is only organized once a year, take advantage
From mid-October to mid-November, the Himalayas will join the transition path between postmonzon and winter. It is a time of blue skies, of days that are shortened and cooled but that do not let the jungle clouds rise, that breath of the valleys that with their clouds embrace the tops every afternoon. That time when winter winds do not sweep the tops.
We seek maximum stability by paying the toll of a little more cold. That’s why this season.
