6000m Peaks

Your way into the world’s most majestic mountains.

Our roots are in the Himalayas, and we have lifelong relationships with the landscapes and the communities that call them home. This enables us to tackle a wider range of peaks than many guiding operations - from mellow climbs like Lobuche East to technical ascents like the 6,812m Ama Dablam.

6000m Peaks

Nicknamed Island Peak by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary’s 1953 Mount Everest Expedition, the mountain properly known as Imja Tse is a perfect introduction to the rigours of Himalayan climbing. At 6,189m above sea level, the peak appears as an island surrounded by a sea of ice if viewed from Dingboche, and offers stunning views of Everest and Lhotse, but is actually relatively accessible. If you’re just embarking on Himalayan climbs, an ascent of Island Peak with Elite Exped is a great place to start.

6000m Peaks

Rising to 6,476m above sea level, Mera Peak, in Khumbu region of Nepal, is known as the gateway to Everest. From its summit, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views which take in five of the world’s highest mountains - Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and, of course, Everest. But it’s not just the views that give Mera its reputation. This relatively easy mountain is often the first Himalayan climbs that mountaineers tackle, paving the way for greater conquests in future.

6000m Peaks

Standing at 6,119m above sea level, high above the glaciers of the Khumbu region of Nepal, Lobuche East is a significant peak, but also one of the most popular, and the easiest to climb. Classified as a “trekking peak” it requires physical fitness and mountain awareness but doesn’t demand much in the way of technical climbing ability. For this reason, we often recommend it to climbers looking to tackle their first Himalayan peak

6000m Peaks

At 6,812m above sea level, Ama Dablam is a long way off the highest peaks in the Himalayas, and yet climbing it is regarded as a true achievement among the mountaineering fraternity. The technical rock and ice climbing skills needed to reach the summit mean you can find Everest veterans, or people who’ve made other 8,000m summits, running into difficulty. In these circumstances, having guides who know the mountain like the back of their hands is essential.
