EXPEDITIONS

 

Join us to the heart of the Himalayas and hike among the world’s highest mountains.  We have arranged trips to the Himalayas for over 15 years and are happy to help you choose an adventure depending on your wishes. The number of hikes per year is limited.
Before each trip, we go through equipment lists, training schedules, itinerary and other things together. Safety and planning are the most important parts of a successful expedition, and some of our tours require previous experience. In addition to our ready-made packages, you always have the opportunity to have a tailor-made solution. Feel free to contact us via the questionnaire on the website for further information.

Kilimanjaro 5895m

About

The highest point in Africa, Kilimanjaro, is perhaps one of the best-known mountains in the world. It is the easiest of the Seven Summits and definitely the most romantic!

Kilimanjaro is like an island, standing tall and sentinel surrounded by the hot, dry plains of Tanzania. An expedition to climb the world’s highest free-standing mountain is a veritable smorgasbord of African culture and scenery, providing a fabulous excuse to visit this wild continent.

Kilimanjaro was one of the first mountains I climbed, and I was captivated immediately. The combination of the beautiful scenery, the people, and the wildlife is unbeatable!

Guide

Date and price 

The best time to climb Kilimanjaro is during the dry seasons when the weather is more stable and clear. This is typically during the dry seasons, which extend from December to March and from June to October. During these months, there is less rain and fewer clouds, providing better views and more comfortable weather for hiking. It’s also important to avoid the rainy seasons as the trails can become muddy and slippery, making the climb more challenging and less safe.

Day 1

Arrival

The group arrives at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO). Participants are met by our representative and transferred to a Aishi Machame hotel, which is beautifully situated on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Day 2

Materuni Waterfall

Acclimatization day. Begin the day with a short drive up onto the slopes of Kilimanjaro, to the village of Materuni, approximately 1,800 m above sea level. This lush rainforest region is known for producing some of the best coffee in East Africa. Start the day with a visit to a small coffee farm and learn about how the coffee is grown, harvested and processed locally. Try your own hand at processing, roasting and preparing a fresh cup of coffee in the local Chagga way

Once you have finished enjoying your coffee break, you will depart on a beautiful 45 minute hike through the hills and valleys en route to the waterfalls. Along the way your guide will teach you about local plants and how they are used for food and traditional medicine, as well as giving you more insight into the local Chagga culture.

The waterfalls are hidden in a pristine valley with cliffs towering up to 200ft overhead. The water falls straight down in a curtain to land in a small pool where you can relax, take lunch and go for a swim in the chill mountain waters.

After the falls hike you will return back to the car and return to the hotel

Day 3

Machame Camp

A guide and a mountain support crew will arrive at the hotel in the morning in order to meet you and hold a quick briefing, after which you will travel by vehicle to Kilimanjaro National Park’s entrance: Machame Gate (1,800 m). After the quick formality of acquiring climbing permits and registering with the search and rescue service, the group will start trekking up toMachame Camp (3,010 m). The trekking route includes passage through the rainforest (where tropical showers are highly probable), so we recommend you take not only spare clothes, but also your raincoats.

Day 4

Shira Camp

After breakfast you will start trekking up to the second high-altitude camp, Shira Camp (3,845 m). On this day you will emerge from the rainforest and for the first time be able to see stunning views of the Shira Plateau laid out in front of you. Physically speaking, the trekking is not very difficult, but you may feel the changes in altitude, so pay attention to your body and remember that choosing the proper pace is extremely important for good trekking. When you reach the camp, you will have lunch and some rest, after which the group will go on an acclimatization hike towards Lava Tower Camp with a 300-meter gain in altitude. Back down at Shira Camp you will be served a hot dinner.

Day 5

Barranco Camp

After breakfast you will leave Shira Camp (3,845 m) and start your way to the key point of the route: Lava Tower (4,630 m). This section of the route has a lot of ascents and descents that end in a camp at over 4,600 meters. It might be difficult, and you may feel some discomfort, but in order to successfully acclimate to the altitude you have to spend at least 1–2 hours here, so this is where lunch will be.

Then you will descend to Barranco Camp (3,960 m). Here you can see the famous Barranco Wall, impressive in both its massive size and steepness! Next day you will be climbing it, but don’t worry: it features a very simple hiking trail.

Day 6

Karanga Camp

On this day it is best to make an early start to avoid crowding on the way up Barranco Wall. Despite the Wall’s seemingly daunting height and steepness the actual climb is rather merciful at a mere hour or so. The top provides a great photo opportunity with Kibo Peak as the backdrop.

The next part of the day is rife with ups and downs where your guides will choose the best place for individual climbers. A lunch break at Karanga Camp shall be followed by an acclimatization climb towards Barafu with its highest point being 4,270m. The group then drops back to Karanga Camp for the overnight.

Day 7

Barafu Camp

After breakfast you begin your way to Barafu Summit Camp (4,640 m). Our team will set up a camp for you ahead of time, including tents and sleeping bags, so you can relax. After regaining strength, you have to complete an acclimatization climb towards the intermediate Kosovo Summit Camp with its highest point being 4,800 m and then back to Barafu Camp, where you will be served a hot dinner. It is better to spend the remainder of the day resting and sleeping before night summiting.

Day 8

Summit – Uhuru Peak!

Summiting starts around midnight from 4,635 m, ending on Uhuru Peak at 5,895 m. While the trek itself is fairly simple, rarified mountain air does pose a challenge. Therefore, a guide who will monitor their condition throughout the climb shall accompany every two climbers ensuring safety above all. Upon summiting, you shall have an opportunity to walk on the nearby glacier.

The descent to 3,820 m at Millennium Camp starts after a two-hour rest back at Barafu Camp.

Day 9

Mweka Gate

The camp is situated in a tropical rainforest. When you wake up, you will feel relief from the reduction of the height and the satisfaction of reaching the summit. After a warm breakfast, you will head for the park’s exit: Mweka Gate (1,640 m). After your descent the whole group will gather to congratulate you, followed by offering you a chance to share your opinions on the climb in the guestbook. Provide you a transfer back to the hotel. Upon completing your transfer, a celebratory toast with sparkling wine awaits you at the hotel, followed by a refreshing dip in the pool. Conclude the evening with a delectable dinner and beverages at the hotel’s esteemed restaurant.

Day 10

Safari och departure

After a restful morning, you kick off your day at 10 am with a visit to African View Lodge for a delicious lunch. Fuelled up, you embark on a thrilling afternoon safari in Arusha National Park with our guides in our own private jeeps. Enjoy yourself in the park’s diverse beauty, from vast acacia savannahs to the shimmering Momella Lakes and the majestic Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second-highest peak. Keep your eyes peeled for fascinating wildlife like monkeys, zebras, giraffes, waterbuck, and buffalo. With a bit of luck, you might even spot a majestic leopard! The birding here is incredible, with over 400 species including the iconic pink flamingos. As the day winds down, we head to the airport for a final farewell dinner before catching our flight back home.

Day 11

Arrival

Back home with the memories of a great adventure in your backpack.

About

Mount Everest North Side Expedition is one of our major regular expeditions – obviously the most popular one. We have been regularly organizing and successfully executing Everest expedition from the Tibetan side for over a decade and we are one of the few foreign expedition operators recognized by the China Tibet Mountaineering Association.

Our Everest North Side Expedition takes place every spring season – April to May. And we start it from our base in Kathmandu. Our group meets up here in the capital and after completing visa documentation we fly to Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region. Keeping in mind the acclimatization schedule we take time exploring the Tibetan culture and landscape and slowly proceed towards the Everest Base Camp.

On the Tibet side, we set up three base camps: the main camp at 5200, also known as the Chinese Base Camp, Intermediate Camp at 5800m and the Advance Base Camp at 6400m. Each of these camps are well equipped to provide comfort and quality service to our expedition members. While some of our expedition sherpas set up the three high camp : Camp1 at 7000m, Camp 2 at 7700m and Camp 3 at 8300 our expedition members complete at least two rounds of acclimatization schedule between Camp 1 and the Base Camp. Then as the ropes are fixed until the summit we are ready to make the summit attempt. By the end of May , as we wrap up the expedition we return by road via Kyirong.

There is a before and after an expedition to Mount Everest. This came to change my whole life.

Cho Oyu 8201m

Cho Oyu 8201m

Cho Oyu 8201m

About

Cho Oyu is the world’s sixth-highest peak. Situated at the border between Tibet and Nepal and just west to Everest – Cho Oyu was first climbed on October 19, 1954, by members of an Austrian Expedition. Ever since it has drawn the interest of many high altitude adventurers and it has become one of the most popular 8000m. mountain.

The best suitable time to climb Cho Oyu is in the Autumn  (September/October) and in the Spring (April/May). The normal climbing route is from the Tibet side – the North West Ridge. This route is considered to be of lesser technical difficulty and risks. Yet, it is still a big mountain and climbing it is a challenge in itself.

Cho Oyu is perfect for those who have already climbed mountains in the Himalayas and now want to try climbing a mountain over 8000m.

I´ve summited Cho Oyu many times since I first got here in spring 1996.

Himlung Himal 7126m

Himlung Himal 7126m

Himlung Himal

About

Located in the Nar-Phu village, also known as ‘Himalparikaogaon,’ translating to a village on the other side of the mountain, Mount Himlung was not an easy choice due to its remote access. Official permission to climb was granted by the Government of Nepal only from 1992. However, today, Himlung Himal stands out as one of the most appealing and achievable 7000m mountains. Unlike other technical peaks like Nuptse, Himlung presents fewer technical challenges and objective dangers.

Trygga Resor organizes expeditions to Himlung during the autumn season, typically in September/October, which is considered the best time to climb. This peak is ideal for those seeking a manageable high-altitude mountaineering experience, as well as climbers aiming to prepare for Everest or other eight-thousand-meter peaks.

A memory for life! To share this together with an awesome gang is something I will always remember. 

Martin Zachrisson

Summiter of Himlung Himal

A fun and slightly unusual mountain to climb, perfect for those who one day ant to reach over 8000m. Getting to the mountain is an experience in itself with all the villages and people you pass along the way.

Lobuche peak

About the trip

The goal with this trip is to stand on top of the mountain Lobuche peak and look out over a fantastic sunrise over the world’s highest mountains. In front of us we then have a fantastic view of Everest, Cho Oyu and Ama Dablam. The tour can also be combined with a hike to Mount Everest base camp and a the top of Kala Pathar, 5545m. By doing this before, you are well acclimatized and prepared for your climb to the summit of Lobuche. The mountain has two peaks, Lobuche East 6119m and Lobuche West 6135m. On our regular departures, we aim to reach Lobuche East. Before the climb, we rehearse climbing techniques in base camp so that you feel fully prepared and confident before climbing. It is a non-technical mountain, but it is a slightly bigger challenge to climb Lobuche Peak than the other ”trekking” mountains. The climb along the summit ridge up to the main peak includes fun alpine climbing with great views.

The trip starts in Nepal’s capital Kathmandu where we do some sightseeing before flying in a small twinotter airplane to the famous airstrip in Lukla. From there our trek begins that take us through countless Sherpa villages, monasteries and amazing hiking trails up to the foot of the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest and to the top of Lobuche. A memory for life.

 

Definitely an adventure out of the ordinary. Well organized and world class guides. A memory for life.
