Most of our trekking peaks are over 6,000m; therefore we count it as a tough trip. Your tough level of fitness is really important for this trek. So we strongly suggest preparing yourself for good physical fitness level. You do not need to be an athlete but a good level of overall fitness is important. Being fit will certainly improve your chances of reaching your chosen summit. As an indication, you should be able to walk 8 km / 5 miles with a maximum height gain of 800m / 2,000ft with a 10kg rucksack in 5 hours or less.
In order to get ready for this challenge, you need to be trained at least for about 4 to 6 months to prepare yourself as a strong candidate. You can go to the fitness center every morning for about 2 hours, do hiking every weekend with increasing weights on your pack (i.e. 7kg, 10kg, 13 kg, 16kg and up to 20kg). Manage some time for cycling for a couple of hours for 3 or 4 times a week. However, during climbing, there might be little symptoms of altitude illness like mild headache, fatigue, etc. but take it as normal and just drink a lot of water (4 – 5 liters) every day. On this trek, you need to be able to hike 6 – 10 hours over hilly terrain up to 6,000m of altitude with a daypack.
All of our trekking peaks climbing trips are accessible to experienced trekkers and those who have done some climbing trips in European mountains in order to take another challenge on the Himalayas Mountains. This trip will be helpful if you want to gain some knowledge about mountaineering and have a future plan to climb the BIG Mountains.
If you have any previous mountaineering experiences and well knowledge about playing with mountaineering gears, good with rock climbing and ice climbing will increase the chances of reaching thesummit but previous trekking and mountaineering experiences are not mandatory and also doesn’t require any technical experience. Note that if you are participating in one of the technical climbing peak then you must have well knowledge about playing with mountaineering climbing gears (i.e. crampon with boot, Ice axe, harness, ropes, jumars, prussiks, abseiling, moving past knots, anchor, etc.).Crampons are used for maximum grip and harness and ropes are used for maximum safety during climbing. But for those who have no mountaineering experience and skill but have got tough level of fitness, you will behave basic training sessions by our guides about how to use the climbing gears during rest/acclimatization day. So we always make sure regarding the safety of the team and the successful climb of the peak.

This was my 3rd trip with Dream Himalaya Adventures – as before, everything was well organised and ran smoothly. They deliver a professional service, with a personal touch. Even if plans change, as they sometimes do in the mountains, Dawa and his team have the resources and connections to quickly adapt and make alternative arrangements, which is comforting to know when you are trekking or climbing in remote areas. I highly recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures – and thanks again to Dawa, Ten Di, Karma, Yeshi, Furi, Gyalje, Phurba, all the porters and the entire team at base camp for the fun trek, a safe & successful summit and a fantastic time at base camp - hope to see you again soon!

One of the best hiking experiences ever with a very kind trek guide and a motivating porter. The food and accommodation were excellent, and mostly the responsibility of the company towards its clients is remarkable until the end of the trek. Looking forward to travel again with Dream Himalaya Adventures.
Manaslu summit climb expedition - Aug-Oct 2022. Unfortunately we were unlucky with the weather due to crazy amounts of snow and avalanche risk and weren't able to summit but I had a great adventure thanks to Dream Himalaya. Dawa Sherpa and Tendi Sherpa did everything in their power to help our expedition succeed. Dawa Sherpa runs a fantastic company and I would highly recommend his services for any adventure from climbing to trekking in Nepal. He happily answered all my questions in advance of the trip promptly and thoroughly. Tendi Sherpa is an excellent certified mountain guide (IFMGA) which is strong, communicates well and is a pleasure to climb with. All the services provided were fantastic. Base camp was amazing. Comfortable single
Overall we were very satisfied with their services. Dawa really made an effort to fullfill our needs. Top of the cream were services in the base camp. Organization, food, tents and kindness of the personel were on the top level. I very recommend!
Amazing hispitality, excellent and very reliable service, good and diverse food in base camp, very professional and kind stuff!
Very well organised by Dream Himalaya Adventures, they are "Dream Team" for make it the best experience ever. I highly recommend them.
Exellent! Organisation, Technical support, acomodation, food, logistick. From Kathmandu to Koto quick and comfortable transportation, the same on way back.
Very well organised by Dawa Lama & his team . Our guide and porter were extremely helpful . At times our guide suggested slight changes to our itinerary which made it easier for us to approach & get over Thorang La pass. A brilliant trip for Mick & myself, Thanks to Dream Himalaya. On our return to Kathmandu Dawa again looked after us , highly recommended .
We have been trekking with Dream Himilaya Adventures since long and have utilised their services for the last 4 treks. This time for the Everest Marathon - 29.05.2022 we used their services from 16.05.2022 to 04.06.2022, they provided both of us support from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. Though Mr. Dawa Lama Sherpa was on a Everest Summit expeditiion, he made all the arrangements required for us sitting at EBC. Mr. Rajesh from Kathmandu Office was very helpful. As usual receiving us at Kathmandu Airport, taking us to Pashupathi Temple and the to Everest Marathon Event Organisers office to collect all necessary things from them. Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, Porter Guide from Lukla to EBC through the route we requested for. Mr. Suresh,
We did the trek to EBC in March 2022 with Dream Himalaya Adventures. A trip like this will always have curveballs because of the environment and altitude - that's when you really appreciate people with brilliant local knowledge and the ability to sort thing out. Dawa and team were absolutely fantastic and I unreservedly recommend them to anyone.
