With the perfect coordination between our experienced staffs and your priceless efforts, we will successfully conquer the summit of Mt Thamserku.

An incredible climbing experience of  ' Mt Thamserku '

We are a group of 3 person from Finland. We booked our Thamserku Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We must say that we are very thankful to the whole Nepal Guide trek’s team for providing us such an excellent service even prior and after the trip. We have absolutely no complaints about the team’s performance. Everyone was very polite, humble and caring.

Our guide was Sonam Sherpa – a young man with good technical climbing knowledge. Many thanks to his guidance to the summit of Mt. Thamserku. We have some nice pictures and memories from the Thamserku summit.

Some say, the quest of climbing just gets higher and higher, it might just be true !!

Now we really feel like climbing peaks that demands even more technical climbing skills and offers unlimited challenges.

We would like to come back and do more climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition in near future !!

Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions !!! Highly Recommended !!!

Thanks once again NGT !!

Mt Thamserku with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions - Accomplished !!!!

We just completed our Thamserku Expedition together with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We are very pleased to have done this trip with NGT !! Top level of service and devoted personnel is what impressed us a lot. Everyone in the team was very cooperative and helpful. We are very glad that we choose Nepal Guide Treks for this expedition. Our climbing guide was Ang-Dawa Sherpa who was very helpful and full of technical climbing knowledge. We learned a lot about technical climbing from him. It felt really good to stand on the summit with close views of high mountains. With our open hearts we recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for trekking, peak climbing and any other kinds of adventure related activities in Nepal.

Good Luck for future 😀
