Overview

Mount Everest is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure. An ultimate achievement any mountain climber can boast of: an exciting opportunity for anyone desiring to at the pinnacle of the Earth is one of life's most rewarding experiences, a guided expedition: Climb with our experienced Everest summiteers guides and mountaineers One base camp and four additional higher Camps supported by highly experienced local mountaineers, guides, and crew members Expedition includes acclimatization and cultural trek into the scenic Sherpa heartland of the Khumbu Valley.

Reaching the top of the world is truly a lifetime achievement. Who would not like to be part of this goal to touch the sky and write the name of a history book that will represent many years of upcoming generations to inspire for? Of course, every one of us dreams of summiting Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Now or never, it is a good time for you to get started on this journey of a lifetime to make history by summating this adorable mountain. Let’s step out to be on top of the world.

Mt Everest climbing has proved to be a benchmark of climbing achievement. Every year, the mountain receives thousands of people attempting both ways from southern Nepal and the northern side from Tibet as Mount Everest stands on the border of Nepal and China (Tibet). Since then the southern approach to the mountain via the Khumbu Valley became popular among the climbers. Mt. Everest was first submitted in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via the South Col. Climbing Mt. Everest is certainly a lifetime opportunity. Its luminously crowned snow-capped peak rises boldly against the bright blue skies. It has a massif of peaks that surround it including Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m/27,940 ft) Mt. Nuptse (7,855 m/25,771 ft) and Mt. Changtse (7,580 m/24,870 ft.) However, Everest expeditions encounter many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions, and even sheer exhaustion. Therefore, we strive hard to conduct the best expedition program putting high importance on the safety aspects of the climb.

Climbing Everest which stands at heights of 8848m, there is no doubt, it is fairly challenging climbing, but it is not an impossible climb with great support and assistance of our experienced climber's guide and porters, the secret to successfully climbing to have good, knowledgeable guides who know the mountains firsthand. However, the Everest climb is not as technical as K2 and Kanchenjunga mountains; it's simply not a piece of cake to climb Everest even for the veteran mountaineers. Nonetheless, it’s also a true fact that getting down from the summit is a little bit harder than getting to the top due to real objective danger and adjustments in every step of the Everest expedition.

Despite being the highest mountains on planet Earth, the Himalayan range of mountains including Mt. Everest is relatively younger than their American and European counterparts like the Andes, the Alps, and the Rockies. Everest has fascinated mountaineers all over the world since the European climbers discovered Everest when Tibet was opened to outsiders in the 1920s. During his lecture tour to the U.S. in 1923, George Mallory gave the reason behind his interest in Everest Expeditions quipping, ‘Because it’s there. Unfortunately, Mallory and Irvine disappeared high on the mountain in 1924 probably due to a snow storm similar to that documented by Jon Krakauer in his book Into the Thin Air. We believe that our planning, logistics, staffing, and experience coupled with your enthusiasm, patience, and perseverance would help you achieve your lifetime dream.

Best Expedition season

The spring season of March to May is considered the best time for Everest climbing. Spring is also the most popular season for the expedition. The months of April and May and then again October and November are the classic climbing period. The summer months of monsoon rains and the winter months from December to February are the most unfavorable time not only for this Expedition but also for trekking to other parts of Nepal Himalayas.

          Tips for Mount Everest Expedition

          • Carry appropriate trekking gears
          • Carry light snacks (like muesli, chocolates, chips, nuts, etc.) with you to balance energy/sugar level in the body
          • Stay hydrated i.e. drink lots of water to boost metabolism
          • Have some physical fitness training to boast modest ascends and descends
          • Do not rush, hence, be calm during the trek
          • Follow the footstep of guides to discern more about the place
          • Follow trekking rules and regulations for a successful trek
          • Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages as much as possible but for some alcohol habitual trekkers, a couple of pegs is acceptable to keep sense still
          • Health problems such as asthma, altitude sickness, sheer exhaustion, avalanches, and vertigo may strike; so take proper care of it
          • Mark-on the favorable seasons for extra-ordinary experience

          FACTORS AFFECTING BEHIND UNSUCCESSFUL EXPEDITION OR CLIMBING

          Homesick: We love our family the most. It’s hard to be apart from family for a long time. But making the family members our weakness is the ‘must avoid’ mantra for the trek like this. People involved in this condition will not be able to complete the venture properly.

          Negligence: Towards rules and regulations: Not following all the rules and regulations provided by leaders, guides, and locals before and during trek lead to an unsuccessful trek.

          No previous experience: Trekking for 10 hours a day (approximately) is not a cup of tea. This trek is hard to accomplish even for experienced people because of the high chances of occurrence of unpredicted and unexpected events.

          Drinks: Drinking alcohol-containing beverages should be avoided as much as possible. But for some alcohol habitual trekkers, it is recommended to take only a couple of pegs in order to keep our senses still.

          Lack of oxygen (altitude sickness)

          Health problems: People having a health problem like vertigo, asthma should not try this trek.
