À propos Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon

It is indeed a great pleasure for Himalaya Expeditions Private Limited to welcome you all to Namche Bazaar for the Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon (THEM). Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon is probably the most adventurous trail run in the world.This amazing event is conducted to commemorate the first successful ascent of Everest by Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Late Sir Edmund Hillary on 29th May, 1953. We consider the marathon a most fitting tribute to these two great men-icons of adventurous souls in the annals of human history and civilization. The journey begins with a sweeping scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, then we trek through Sherpa villages with beautiful view of the world’s highest snowcapped peaks. The highest spot of this trip is Kalapatthar at 5545m/18200ft, from the summit of which we can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of Himalayan peaks, ranges and glaciers including Mt Everest a stone’s throw away. We shall trek to Everest Base Camp from where the race begins. Along the way we shall pass through the Everest National Park and Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital town. We will also visit the Buddhist monasteries of Pangboche (one of the oldest in the area) and Thyangboche (the biggest in the whole Himalayas) which was re-built after being burnt to the ground years ago (apparently the old monk wanted to douse the electric heater by banging it on the floor).

VUE D'ENSEMBLE

The route leads mostly downhill on rough tracks and trails, through the spectacular homeland of the Sherpa people, to Namche Bazaar (3446m). A sting in the tail, however, is the 500 metre ascent from Phunki Tenga to Kunde, before the final descent into Namche.
