(50 NIGHTS/ 51 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Gyachung Kang (7,952m / 26,089ft.) is an elegant seven-thousander in the Mahalangur Himal section of the Himalayas in Nepal. It is one of the prominent peaks for expeditions that lies between Mt. Everest and Cho Oyu at the border between Nepal and Tibet in the Khumbu region. The first ascent to the summit was made in 1964 by climbers, Y. Kato, K. Sakaizawa and Pasang Phutar. The first climb via the north face was made in 1999 by a Slovene expedition. There have been very few attempts to summit the Gyachung Kang since the last year decades.

The Mt. Gyachung Kang Expedition in Nepal begins and ends at Lukla. There are a number of stops at villages and teahouses on the way to the first base camp, including a stop at the Namche Bazaar, the most popular market in the Himalayan region of Nepal. You must acclimatize at Namche and at base camps before the main summit climb. The route offers one of the best trekking experiences. The lake visits, the stops at teahouses and the breathtaking Himalayan landscapes is the speciality of the Mt. Gyachung Kang 50 Night 51 Days Trekking Tour.
