Thamserku might not enjoy the theme of his cousins in the Himalayas, but this 6600 m tall giant can overwhelm even the most technically sound and skillful climbers. It has two peaks that are permitted for climbing by the Nepal government.

The northern Peak is called Kusum Kanguru and the southern Peak is known as Kangtega. Views from the summits is rewarding enough, but the tough climb which is lined with steep slopes and unpredictable crevices gives you a sense of accomplishment that is required to reach the next milestone.


Your journey starts from Lukla and follows the famed Everest Base Camp Trekking Trail to the here of Khumbu at Namche Bazaar. After having a fun experience with the items, cuisines of the numerous vendors and acclimatization you head towards the Thamserku Base Camp at South West.

You rest at the Base Camp which is over 4900 m and let your body acclimatize while going through some intense climbing practices. As you make your way to the higher camps, you should be careful of your surroundings while making the most of your equipment. The Sherpas here show their expertise and natural climbing skills to guide you to the summit.

The summit view makes you realize what a marvelous sculptor nature is with expedition peaks such as Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyo and various others form an enclosure of the Khumbu region.

On your way back, you might go on a minor shopping spree at the Namche Bazaar and take home souvenirs that are made by the local tribes and ethnic groups in the valley.

What do you expect from a trek? Well, adventure and amazing experience this is what we all expect. But if you truly want to enjoy trekking then this is the perfect trail that you can choose for your next trip.
