Duration: 17 days
Visiting the Everest region and the ascent to Chukung Re (5500m)
Meeting date: 28th October 2018
There are just a few countries in the world whose geography is as divesrse as Nepal’s. The region of Mount Everest is located in eastern Nepal. Mount Everest (8848m), the highest peak in the world, is known by the local population as Sagarmatha (Mother of the Universe). To meet the great people of this region, the members of the Sherpa community, is an extraordinary experience. They came from the pasturelands to East Tibet more than 470 years ago, but they never lost their connection with their homeland. Walking past glacial rivers, green valleys and through forests of blooming rhododendron you will see the highest peaks in the world and you will understand why the population believes that this is where the gods live.
Sherpa’s smiling faces will be common along this route and their hospitality will remain in your memory for months after your return home. A city of a million souls such as Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is impossible to see in a few days, but it is possible to push the door ajar on this wonderfully intimate, lively, and quite rich place, despite the poverty that surrounds it.

I enjoyed EST expeditions and made very good friends, who I have been in regular contact with ever since. I experienced and learned a lot during the two expeditions I went to with Extreme Summit Team. I appreciate the way in which Dragan does his job. His knowledge of the secrets of the Himalayas inspires confidence in each member of the expedition and my opinion is that he is capable to lead to the top of the mountain even people with modest mountaineering skills. I am always pleased to recommend EST team to all my colleagues who would like to experience the challenges of high mountain climbing
“I came to know Dragan and his extremist team somewhat too late. I had climbed and walked across the mountains for over thirty years (it is not just the air but the spirit of mountains), but never much farther than Mt. Durmitor and Mt. Prokletije and never higher than Mt. Olympus. For a long time I thought I could not go farther or higher until I met Dragan who is familiar with paths that lead far and beyond and high up in the air and joined him when I was sixty something, for the time being just to the Himalayas, the Andes, Mt. Atlas. Sounds incomplete, doesn’t it?
I was fortunate enough to be a member of three expeditions organized by EST: Island peak, Aconcagua and Cho Oyu. They are true professionals, good and likeable people who not only provide technical assistance but also offer spiritual development. It was an honor to meet Dragan, Miloš and Nina who made gravity have less of an effect on me.
