Tilmans Pass Trek
First things first, this Tilmans Pass trek is not for the faint-hearted! This requires some climbing skills and in the later part of the trek full mountaineering equipment along with tents, food and fuel will be required.
The trek starts from Syabrubesi; passes through Langshisa Kharka and heads up alongside Langshisa Glacier before ascending up to the pass which lies in between Urkinmang and Gangchempo. Fantastic mountain views will continue to mesmerize you throughout the trek.
Tilman’s Pass terk is highly recommended for those who are in search of a hard-hitting adventure.

Our experience with Expedition Himalaya (EH) was excellent. On the advice of a previous client (a friend of ours), we contacted Navin at EH and asked if they could organize the logistics for the "Three Passes" (Kongma La, Cho La, Renjo La) trek. We already knew what itinerary we wanted but we were looking for assistance with permits, flights (helicopters; we didn't feel like dealing with going to Ramechhap for the fixed wing flight to Lukla), lining up a porter, and making reservations in advance at the lodges (we were trekking in Nov and, while not quite peak season, it was crowded and especially in places like Lobuche, we were really glad we had reservations). EH set us up with a wonderful guy, Chepa, who was ridiculously fast and just a pleasure to trek with (we'd all been up in the Khumbu numerous times and didn't need a guide). All the lodge bookings had been made as we'd been told, though I'd suggest doing some research in advance and telling EH if you have a particular lodge you want to stay in at each village (and what kind of room - standard, attached bath, etc). We didn't specify any particular lodges and, while the ones they selected for us were mostly good, in two cases they'd booked us into somewhat run-down lodges and there were definitely better options available (in Deboche, I'd recommend the Rivendell Lodge, and in Gokyo, either the Thanka Inn or the Himalayan Eco-Lodge). EH did a great job with arranging the helicopters and were suitably flexible with other aspects of the trip (for example, we ended up coming back to Kathmandu a day early and it was no dramas). Navin and the rest of the EH staff were professional, competent, charged very fair prices (we shopped around), and overall did a great job of arranging our trip. I can recommend them without any hesitation.

My husband, brother and I were keen to do the 3 Passes Trek in the Everest Region of Nepal, and Expedition Himalaya was recommended to us. We were in regular contact with them for a few months before our trek, and they were quick at replying, and organised everything very well! We already knew what itinerary we were interested in, and Expedition Himalaya organised everything for us - including pick up and transfer at Kathmandu Airport, which was very nice after a long flight. They also arranged all the accommodation for the trek, the flights (with helicopter, as we did not want to have to travel by road to Ramechhap is possible), as well as the porter. Our porter Cheppa was great - friendly and always willing to give advice on how many hours we could expect to walk per day, or what time we should eat breakfast and leave. Expedition Himalaya were really helpful, and also flexible regarding changes to our schedule. Navin and the rest of the team at Expedition Himalaya were professional, efficient, and good value - we were very happy with the trek, and absolutely recommend Expedition Himalaya.

"The BEST in the business". Expedition Himalaya has arranged many high-altitude expeditions for us and they truly are the BEST in the business! Their attention to detail and personal safety is what has made us feel extremely comfortable over the years on each of our climbs with them. We highly recommend them if you’re thinking about coming to Nepal, Tibet or Bhutan. Thank you Nabin and all your amazing crew!

"I'd been thinking of crossing Tilman's pass since 2009 and Expedition Himalay's team helped us achieve our goal - to be honest we completely couldn't have successfully crossed Tilman's Pass without them. The lead guide (Kami Sherpa) was attentive, supportive and a great leader of the team. The cook (Gombu Sherpa) effectively acted as a second guide as well as a cook and was also really good. The porters and the kitchen boys were excellent as well. I think this was also an adventure for them and they all said it was a much tougher trek than the usual Everest Base Camp/Annapurna type treks. We thoroughly enjoyed all our time in Nepal and hope to do something with Expedition Himalaya again soon. Once again, many thanks to Expedition Himalaya for all the help. Nigel & Sue"
