Day 1: Arrival and get-together at the hotel in Kathmandu
Everyone will be met at the airport and taken to the hotel, regardless of whether the journey was booked individually or not. And then we will get off to a comfortable start… check in and get to know the others while enjoying a beer on the terrace and the emerging excitement of belonging to the distinguished double expedition team.
Day 2: Free day in Kathmandu
Those who do not yet know Kathmandu will love it. Relax, shop in Thamel, enjoy the cultural program, or simply soak up the atmosphere. To each his own.
Day 3: Flight to Lahsa
We have to say good bye to Nepal for now and fly to Lhasa, the highest situated capital worldwide. Our hotel is located in the center of the city and is a good starting point to discover the different impressions of the city and smell Tibetan air for the very first time.
Day 4: Free time at your disposal
Also today there is time to visit the former residence of Dalai Lama and the countless temple and monasteries, some of them are declared as UNESCO-world heritage. It is also always nice to just drink some butter tea and watch the Tibetan every day life.
Day 5: Drive to Lhatse
Day 6: Transfer to Tingri at 4300m. The accommodation is again very simple, but the food isstill very good! From here you can already see the Cho Oyu!
Day 7: A day of rest for everyone in order to acclimatize. Again, beautiful 5000m high hill to hike. One wonders about the sheep with their shepherds, because it is even more barren here.
Day 8: You will be taken to the Chinese base camp of Shisha Pangma at 4950m.
Day 9: A day of rest in the camp for acclimatization and for organizing the loads for the yaks.
Day 10: Another cozy day of acclimatization and getting organized.
Day 11: We reach the base camp which is also at about 5650m.
