Trip Introduction;
Mount Chamlang 7319 meters is an attractive mountain that is located in Eastern Nepal, just about 10 kilometers south-west of Mount Makalu – 5th highest mountain in the world. It lies in the southern section of Mahalangur Himalayan Range. The first successful ascent of Mount Chamlang was made by a Japanese Expedition team member – Soh Anma and Nepali national – Pasang Phutar Sherpa on 31st May, 1962, led by Dr. Seiki Nakano. It is a steep forward mountain comprising of several technical sections with deep seracs and crevasses.

Apart from the difficult and challenging expedition, the trek leading towards the base camp requires crossing of two popular high passes: Zatrawala Pass at 4600 meters and Mera La Pass at 5400 meters. Hence, high level of physical fitness and previous experience of technical climbing is highly recommended for the summit climb of Mt Chamlang. Chamlang Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition is an excellent option for adventure seeking climbers to gain a thrill and excitement filled adventure climbing with rewards of stunning views of world’s towering mountains.

Chamlang Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts at Kathmandu. After spending a full day making preparations for climbing and sightseeing around Kathmandu, we will take a scenic flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip of Lukla – gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest region. From Lukla we start our trek and follow the trail that is a gradual uphill trekking. Passing through Chuthang we head towards the crossing of Zatrawala pass at 4600 meters to arrive at Tuli Kharka. From there our trail leads through Kothe, Thangnak and towards Khare. We will spend a day in Khare for acclimatization as we have now reach at an elevation of 5000 meters. Acclimatization is very essential to avoid mental and physical illness as well as for assuring the successful summit climb. Our trail continues further for the crossing of Mera La Pass at 5400 meters to arrive at Chamlang Low Base Camp and then towards Chamlang Base Camp. Our Sherpa crew will make necessary preparations for setting up additional camps above base camp.

Following the guidance and instructions of our experienced Sherpa climbing experts, we will overcome several technical sections and head towards the summit. Our tiring and challenging climb to the summit is rewarded with stunning views of world’s towering mountains including Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Lhotse and other surrounding high peaks. We descend following the same route back to base camp, and from there retrace our steps passing through Khare, Chutang and then back to Lukla. The adventurous and challenging Chamlang Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition ends with a scenic flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu.

Thanks Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for successful Chamlang Expedition !!!

We were a group of 7 people from Japan who did Chamlang Expedition together with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions. Very impressive service staffs, without all the support from carrying necessary gears, camping and cooking. Really great effort by the Sherpa team !! We appreciate every part of it ! Also, our climbing guide Ang-Dawa Sherpa – a skillful climber. His guidance and knowledge about the mountain made our summit attempt successful. Only 5 of us made it to the summit, as two of our fellow members couldn’t make it due to altitude sickness. We managed to take pictures at the summit which will always remind us about our victory climb of Mount Chamlang. We strongly recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for trekking and climbing activities in Nepal. Once again thank you Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for great effort !!!

Wishing Best of Luck for Future !!!
