Overview

Mount Everest is earth’s highest mountain above sea level. The Mount Everest expedition is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure. To stand at the pinnacle of the Earth is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. Thus, the Mount Everest Expedition is a dream climbing expedition for most adventure-seekers.

Mount Everest sits right at the border between Nepal and Tibet. Climbing the Everest is not an easy task. It is not only demanding both physically and mentally, it is expensive, too. It requires months of training. Mountaineers spend weeks getting their gear, adjusting to the altitude and simply waiting for good weather.

There are many possible routes, but the majority of Everest climbers usually choose between two — the south route in Nepal and the north route in Tibet. Most mountaineers attempt to ascend the world’s tallest peak in May. There’s a brief window of time – usually after May 15. This is when temperatures are warmer and the high-altitude winds known as the jet stream have moved away from the mountains.

Those climbing on the south route fly into Kathmandu, then fly on to the Himalayan town of Lukla, where travellers begin hiking to the Everest base camp. Then the climbers, along with staff members and Sherpa guides, spend nearly two weeks hiking to the Everest base camp.

They then spend about two weeks adjusting to the altitude and waiting on good weather conditions before continuing for another four days, reaching other camps and finally ascending to the summit. It takes about two months to climb Mt. Everest.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Mt. Everest standing a tall at 8,848m / 29,028ft above sea level is the tallest peak in the world. It is called Sagarmatha in Nepali meaning “head touching the sky” and in Sherpa, Chomolungma, meaning “Mother Goddess of the world".
  • There are two famous routes to Everest Expedition: 1. Northeast ridge from China Tibet and South Col route on the Nepal side, which is also route taken by late Sir Edmund Hillary and late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who first successfully reach summit on 29 May 1953 registering their names as Heroes of the adventure world. Climbing Everest expedition has been successfully organized and climbed many times since then.
  • Camp I: 6400m. or 20000ft.
  • After base Camp, the camp 1st is located at the flat area of endless snow and deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the sun’s reflection from this place we get warm and hitting ambience. During night we can listen to the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk through to reach the Camp II.
  • Camp II: 6750m. or 21000ft.
  • Camp II is situated at the height of 6750m or 21000ft. It is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. Hear bad clouds roll-in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our Camp II. Some time we may experience strong wind here.
  • Camp III: 7100m or 22300ft.
  • Camp III is located at the height of 7100m.or 22300ft, adjoining to Mt Lhotse wall. After climbing 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization it leads us to Camp IV. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep low bands (lose, down -slopping and rotten limestone). From there, after crossing short snowfield the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the South Col. (Another wells name meaning Saddle of pass). Oxygen should probably be used above base Camp III if needed.
  • Camp IV: 8400m. or 26000ft.
  • Camp IV is located at height of 8400m. or 26000ft. It is the last camp of the Expedition. From here summit is only about 500m in vertical distance. This is the final and dangerous part of the climbing. This place is besieged by ferocious and violent winds. The normal best way to reach to summit is via the narrow South – East Ridge and it precedes the South Summit at 28710ft.
