About the mountain

Taboche is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya, reaching 6,495m (21,309ft) above sea level, and sits directly across the Imja River from Ama Dablam and above the villages of Pheriche and Dingboche.

 

The first ascent of this tricky peak was made in 1974 by a French expedition led by Yannick Seigneur and the composer Jean-Christian Michel.   

Climbing the mountain

Himex is offering this peak as a great alternative to Ama Dablam which is becoming very crowded these days, as well as Cholotse which is far more difficult to climb, and at the moment we are the only company running this trip, so you can expect to be climbing with no one else around, which is a fairly rare opportunity these days.

The trip will start from our usual base in Kathmandu, the Hyatt hotel where we will spend a couple of days getting the team together and sorting any last minute kit requirements and so on.

 

From Kathmandu we will then follow the usual Everest Base Camp route, taking a helicopter to Namche via Lukla, then trekking through the region’s famous towns, such as Khumjung, Phortse, Pheriche and then on to Taboche. This is a route we have been doing for many years, so have a fantastic infrastructure in place with the best lodges and our own cooking staff overseeing all meals to ensure the highest level of quality.
