Mt. Everest, rising 8,848m (29,028ft) above sea level reigns as the highest mountain on Earth. For decades summiting Everest has been considered one of the greatest mountaineering achievements. In the spring of each year, we embrace this intense challenge by taking a group of qualified climbers to climb Mt. Everest via the North Col route of Tibet. We will follow the famous climbing route of Mallory establishing 4 high camps along with Advance Base Camp, Intermediate camp and of course a relaxing Base Camp for accommodation during the expedition.
Dream Himalaya Adventures has been running successful Himalayan expeditions to the Himalayas of Nepal & Tibet. We support full board expedition services up the summit and to the advance base camp as well. We are committed to providing you with the best quality services and experience to help you reach your goal. However, all the climbing members must have considerable climbing experience at higher altitudes, preferably in Himalayas.
Our Sherpas are highly qualified, experienced and multiple times Everest summiteers and they have a high reputation with excellent success rates with the safety of the client as number one priority. All members will be assisted by our experienced Sherpas at the ratio of 1:1 and there will be a manager at base camp to assist the team and also act as a liaison between climbers and the Sherpas.
As soon as the team will be at a Chinese base camp (5200 meters), you can see the camp simply ready to serve you. You can stay at BC for a few days for the preparation and proper acclimatization and then we trek towards Advance base camp along with necessary number of yaks. Our in-charge of the expedition will prepare the required number of yaks. It will take 2 days from the BC to reach ABC spending 1st night at middle camp, where we will have logistic facilities for any emergency purpose while doing up and down. Next morning you will get to ABC (6,400 meters) after spending around 6 hours of walking. Advance base camp is the place where expedition members spend most of the time of the expedition. During a stay at ABC, clients can properly acclimatize themselves and able to make a trip to the higher camps.
Climbing Sherpas will take the necessary food, drinks & tents, etc. to the North Col before clients get there. After spending a couple of nights at North Col, Expedition members will return to ABC or BC for rest & acclimatization.
The Climbing Sherpa will carry the necessary loads to the Camp-2. Now clients should move to 7500/7800from ABC, first night at NC & next night in 7500& back to ABC the following morning. Client should spend a night at 7500 in order to acclimatize properly. Some members can go down to BC as well. The way from camp 2 to Camp 3 is rocky & terrain, but not so difficult. Sometime the gust will be the problem. From camp 2 to 3 is the main windy section.
After passing the windy & rocky section, you will be at Camp- 3 (7700 meters). Here again, the sherpa takes the loads & sets up the camps before the client reaches there. Here from ABC to NC on the first night, next night at 7700, next morning up to 7900 & direct back to NC/ABC. Sherpa provides you the boiled water/tea/coffee & serves you the individual packed foods (High altitude food) in the high camps. Walking from the camp-3 to 4, the route is mixed up like snow angle, rocky & some difficulty area as well. Here too the speedy wind will hit you. Clients should go up to 7700/7900 and have overnight stay for acclimatization purposes.
This is your last camp from where the summit attempt can be made. The team of Sherpas will take all the necessary loads to the camp-4 including the required numbers of oxygen for the summit push.
After all the camps are established and all our supplies are in their places, we return to Base Camp for a rest. At Base Camp, we will organize our summit teams and prepare ourselves for summit attempts. Moreover, climbers can go to the lower villages/town such as to Tingri, Nyalam, Zangmu, Sighar on their own expenses for better rest. We start our summit push looking at the best weather summit window.
On the way to summit you have to cross the 1st, 2nd& 3rd steps then only you are able to stand at the top of the world (summit of Mt Everest). Between the 1st& 2nd step is tricky & technical part before summit attempt. You should be very careful about your full climbing gear, Oxygen mask regulator set and careful yourself.
Once the climbers ascend the 3rd step, they slowly and laboriously proceed to the summit at 29,028 feet. The summit sits at the top of the world. Though not the closest place to the sun due to the earth's curve, it is the highest peak on earth. Due to the decreased air pressure, the summit contains less than one-third of the oxygen at sea level. If dropped off on the summit directly from sea level (impossible in reality), a person would die within minutes. Typically, climbers achieving the great summit will take pictures, gain their composure, briefly enjoy the view, and then return to Camp lower as quickly as possible. The risk of staying at the summit and the exhaustion from achieving the summit is too great to permit climbers to fully enjoy the great accomplishment at that moment.
The most readers of this page perhaps aware, that the return trip can be even more dangerous than the climb to the summit.
However, simply getting to the summit of Mt Everest doesn't mean that the game is over. You still have a challenge to be faced which is decent down to BC safely. Probably you can decent to camp-2 or North Col on the first night, then ABC, BC. Only at this stage, the mission Mt.Everest is complete. Packing the expedition stuffs then drive back to KTM.
As always, weather plays a major part in all actual summit attempts. We will try a few summit attempts safely as possible, as our goal is to put the maximum number of people on the summit. Guides and Sherpas will accompany all summit attempts and oxygen will be used.
We will follow the famous climbing route of Mallory, North Ridge, establishing 4 high camps. Our base camp at ~5200m at a big ground above Rongbuk before making our way to Advance Base Camp at 6,400m. We'll climb to Camp-1 at altitude of 7000m, which is also called NorthCol and camp-2 at 7,500m. Camp-3 would be fixed after crossing the windy and rocky section at 7,700m altitudes. Finally, at the last camp-4, we'll head up to 8300m where we will deposit oxygen and tents before the summit attempt.
After final preparations in Kathmandu, we will drive by private bus from Kathmandu to Kodari (a small border town). Complete necessary immigration formalities and cross the Chinese border and drive to Zangmu by land cruiser. We will drive all the way to Base Camp spending 5 days' time, which includes acclimatization days at Nyalam (3,400m) & Tingri (4300m).
If the trip is planned to fly to Lhasa then, we spent about 3 nights, 2 full days in Lhasa doing some sight seen, tours and acclimatization. From Lhasa, we will take a drive-by land cruiser or by bus for Base Camp, spending about 4/5 days and this will give us additional opportunity to explore the land of Tibet and visiting ancient cities of Tibet i.e. Gyantse (3990m), Shegar (4050m) and Shigatse (3,860m).

Dream Himalaya Adventures strongly suggest that you must climb a number of 6,000m peaks in order to gain mountaineering proficiency and also undertake a trip to one of the 7,000m peak or one of the technically difficult 6000m peaks i.e. Mt. Amadablam, or similar, where you experience expedition camping, higher altitude, and dealing with the cold. Now to get more familiar with 8,000m altitude and extreme cold temperature, we highly recommend our clients to climb one of our expedition to 8000m mountains, i.e. Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m) or any other over 8,000m mountain, where working with Sherpas, the use of fixed ropes and oxygen equipment are pretty much associated with. With this experience on your side, you will be ready to attempt the Mt. Everest. If you do so, our experience shows that those who have done the expedition with us have significantly increased the success rates. If you are fit and motivated but lacked technical climbing skills or suitable experience, we have options to keep you safe and get you high. This might be a personal Sherpa or a pre-trip training course.
You must have well knowledge about the usage of mountaineering gears, good with rock climbing and ice climbing, will increase the chances of reaching the summit and also the previous mountaineering experiences is mandatory but doesn’t really require any high level of technical experience.
Très bonne organisation de la planification jusqu'au départ. Professionnel. L'équipe au BC est top Merci Dawa. In English translation Very good organization from planning to departure. Professional. The team at BC is great Thanks Dawa.
From the first morning meeting, when Dawa Sherpa Lama (our trip organizer and guide) carefully advised us on what to pack and what to leave in hotel in Kathmandu while we were on our high altitude trek, to the hike from Lukla to Namche Bazaar to the Sherpa village of Thame, to Everest View Hotel and then up to Tengboche Monastery -- and finally back to the city for tourist sites and shopping, we were in the best of hands. We had fun, we felt adventurous and always safe and well accommodated at nice tea houses and lodges. Such an amazingly stunning country! All the special requests I had made for research for my book were met and then some.
Dream Himalaya Adventures is a fantastic company to trek with! We had specific dates that we needed to work within and wanted to experience as much as we could within this time and Dawa did a fantastic job of organising our tip to suit. Everything was thoroughly planned and communicated and the hospitality in country was fantastic, from pre-trip meetings to a highly experienced guide. We were so well looked after the whole time we were in Nepal and they were able to make recommendations and changes to our itineraries as the trip went. Couldn’t recommend Dawa and the team enough!
We booked our adventure with Dream Himalaya and we certainly did not regret one bit of it. From the moment we landed, we were well taken care of. We were well informed each step of the way on what was or will happen during the hike. This was especially evident when our first days were unfortunately side-tracked by bad weather in Lukla and we had to make crucial decisions for the remainder of the trip. During the hike, we were well taken care of by our sherpa and porters who were all very nice, helpful and thoughtful. They made sure that we were all taken care of, fed and well rested. They also made sure that no one was left behind no
In okt,nov 2023 I was a member of a small group crossing Saribung pas to Mustang. This logistically very demanding trek was excellently prepared by the Dream Himlay Company and in particular by the trek leader Pasang Sherpa. I appreciated the pre-trip very fast and precise mail answers to my questions from Dawa and I am so grateful to have met so many friendly and extremely helpful assistent leaders, porters and kitchen staff members, who all contributed to make this trek an experience of a lifetime.
We chose Dream Himalayas because my partner, Twyla, previously engaged with them in 2013 to trek the Everest Base Camp. She had a wonderful experience with Dawa and his team; they made her EBC dreams come true and she fondly remembers how very well taken care she her trekking partner were on their private trip. So when the opportunity to visit Nepal came in 2023, we did not hesitate to contact Dawa and to inquire if he could customize a bike-trek-bike itinerary for us. For the past years, we have transitioned from trekkers to bike tourers and we wanted to take on the challenge of biking the Annapurna Circuit but we wanted to do it with an experienced outfitter that we
Who said it's the end of the trekking season?! I completed the Everest Base Camp trek through Dream Himalaya Adventures at the end of December - Christmas Day on the way down - and the weather couldn't have been better. Clear blue skies and, ok, a cold night at -26 Celcius, but appropriate clothing layers overcame that. Reaching the base camp was satisfying, but more challenging was the higher Mt Kali Pathar which was a little deficient in oxygen, but fun all the same. My sincere thanks go to Dawa Sherpa Lama for so competently organising this trip for me, as well as later excursions to Chitwan wildlife park and beautiful Pokhara leading up to a memorable new years eve
Did a three-week trek with Dawa Sherpa Lama's company over Sarabung Pass and through the Upper Mustang region. We told Dawa what we were looking for and he designed a trip that met our hopes and expectations. Our lead Sherpa, Pasang Sherpa is very experienced (7 Everest summits), and the entire team of Sherpas, cooks, and porters provided a very high level of service, including great food during the camping sections of the trip. I would recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures Pvt. Ltd to any of my friends that want to trek in Nepal.
We’ve never been so well cared for! Dawa Sherpa is exceptional at what he does and his team including Kami as additional guide and Mantare Rai and Aiselu Rei, as amazing porters, were friendly and attentive, alert to our needs even before we realized what we needed. And a surprise anniversary cake high on the trail too and another birthday cake back in Kathmandu. Yes, I hit both milestones miles from home but Dawa didn’t let them slip by unnoticed. Through sickness and fleeting ailments, the ready and sound advice, encouragement and support, laughter, kindness camaraderie of these amazing people we were able to complete our lofty goals in our mid-sixties. We didn’t give up and are proud of the accomplishment
I wanted a real authentic experiance as well as challenging. Dawa was nothing short of AH-MAZING, right fron the start, the level of detail he went into with what I wanted, what I was capable of and how I needed to prepare. With constant communication before the trip, I was totally relaxed and confident I was in the right hands. My Sherpa Pasang was outstanding! so experianced in bith climbing and culture, we had the best time and I consider both of them good friends after this EPIC adventure. I def reccomend you using Dream Himalaya Adventures.
