Mountaineering Trips

'Peaks upon peaks

         Alps upon alps.....'

Alexander Pope could have been describing Nepal, and not his beloved European Alps. For to reach our high peaks you have to cross hilltops and descend into the valleys, passing through villages perched on steep slopes, where time has stood still. Yes, to reach the climbs you must journey through the Nepalese 'Alps.'  

Nepal is a mountain playground for the deserving, and to climb here requires planning, training and experience.

      We, The Snow Dragons, can arrange the planning, we have the experience, and together we can facilitate the training - be it physical, mental or technical. 

You may aspire to ascend a known peak, 

or you wish to attempt a new climb. 

No matter what, we are able to assist, from planning, obtaining permits, 

transport, providing qualified staff, equipment, etc...

Yes, everything from A to Z.

Please contact us with your 'chosen' peak,

 or advise us of your experience, time frame, number in the party, so we can come with suggestions.   

Snow Dragons Menu 

      We highlight but a few, to wet your appetite. 

Mera Peak - 6475m

Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing made the first ascent on the 20th May, 1953.

You may fly in via Lukla Airport, or with jeep via Jumla, which allows for more gradual acclimatization.

We take you into the Hinku and Hongu Basins, where we have to be totally self-sufficient.

After about 8 days we reach Base Camp, from where it is possible to make a summit attempt.

We recommend a high camp at 5,800m, on the Mera Glacier.

The ascent is pretty straightforward, although the glacier can be heavily crevassed.

Lone skiers beware.

There are three peaks, with the South Summit being the most acceptable (6065m), and a worthy peak. 

The majority aim for the North Summit, the highest at 6476m, by skirting the Central Summit (6461m).


Kanchenjunga, Chamjlang, Makalu and Baruntse to the east, due north Everest peeps over Nuptse/Lhotse ridge. Westwards, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyo and Kantega greet you.

Kusum Kanguru - 6369m

The name originates from Tibetan, meaning 'three snow peaks.'

Of the 'Trekking Peaks' this is the most difficult, the climbing being technical, needing experience and commitment. There are at lest six routes to the summit, none are easy.

Kwangde Ri - 6187m

A difficult and impressive mountain, that has a multi-summit ridge, and rises south-west of Namchie Bazaar. 

It is here those who wish to climb the North side must go via. 

Those wishing to climb from the south must cross the Dud Khosi.

Lobuje Peak - East, 6119m - and West, 6145m

The two peaks are connected by a ridge, that is longer than it looks. For East, a striking mountain, you need a Peak Permit, while West requires an Expedition Permit. 

Pokalde, 5806m - and Kongma Tse, 5820m

Pokalde is a rather insignificant peak, but in the words of Wilfrid Noyce 

(after he and members of the 1953 Everest expedition had acclimatized on it):

'A jolly ridge, in the alpine sense...Everest and Makalu reared above the clouds like two great canine teeth, 'fangs excrescent' upon the jaws of the earth.'

'Kongma Tse brings you even closer.

The views and nearness to Lhotse/Nuptse make it a worthy diversion.

You can virtually touch the giants.' - Dave Durkan

Imja Tse - 6189m

There is probably no truth that a dog followed a biscuit trail to the summit of Island Peak.

 It is true that it is the most climbed of the Trekking Peaks, something that should not lead to false security - 

for many have failed, and some have suffered. 

The mountain is an extension of Lhotse Shar, and the summit ridge is one of the most rewarding of the Trekking Peaks. 

Ramdung, 5925m - and Parchamo, 6187m

These two peaks are in Rolwaing Himal - and combined with crossing the Tesi Lapcha, offer some of Nepals most exciting and rewarding alpine mountaineering.

Naya Kanga - 5844m

Viewed from the hill above Kyangjin Gompa, in Langtang, the peak has an ascetically appealing shape, and combined with crossing the Ganja La (5122m) into Helambu, offers a fine alpine tour.

It offers a stunning panorama of  the peaks of Jugal HImal and all the way to 

Shishapangma (8046m), the last 8000m peak to be climbed. 

Paldor - 5928m - Ganesh Himal

Mardi Himal - 555m - Annapurna

Hiunchuli - 6331m - Annapurna

Tharpu Chulu - 5500m - Annapurna

Singu Chuli - 6501m - Annapurna
