Trip Introduction

Mount Everest Expedition

Mt. Everest is the highest mountain on earth, when measuring the height of its summit above sea level. Everest’s summit ridge marks the border between Nepal and China. The summit of Mount Everest is thought to be rising at a rate of around 4 millimeters per year.

The mountain is called “Sagarmatha” in Nepal, which means “Forehead of the Sky” and in Tibetan language it is called Chomolungma or Qomolangma meaning “Mother of the Universe”. The mountain was given its English name by Andrew Waugh, the British surveyor-general of India. With both Nepal and Tibet closed to foreign travel, he wrote:

Hence Waugh chose to name the mountain after George Everest, first using the spelling Mont Everest, and then Mount Everest.

To climb Everest there are two main routes, the south-east ridge from Nepal and the north-east ridge from Tibet, as well as thirteen other less frequently climbed routes. Of the two main routes, the south-east ridge is technically easier and is the more frequently-used route. It was the route used by Hillary and Tenzing in 1953. This was, however, a route decision dictated more by politics than by design as the Tibetan border was closed to foreigners in 1949.

Most attempts are made during April and May before the summer monsoon season. A change in the jet stream at this time of year also reduces the average wind speeds high on the mountain. While attempts are sometime made after the monsoon in September and October but the additional snow deposited by the monsoon makes climbing even more difficult.

Mount Everest South Side Expedition
After few days acclimatization and observation the himalayas at the Everest Base Camp, we start up through the Icefall to the Camp1 early morning and return to our more comfortable Base Camp. Our practice leader at Base camp will guide all the members to become familiar with Icefall. We provide our valuable expedition members enough time to be acclimatizing with environment, altitude before we head to Camp3 and Camp4. Our Everest summit plan in general will be a single push on 7-9 days from Base Camp as follows: Everest Base Camp to Camp1, Camp1 to Camp2, Camp2 to Camp3, Camp3 to Camp4 to Summit to Camp4, Camp4 to Camp2, Camp2 to Base Camp and continue walk back to Lukla and fly to Kathmandu. The Summit program will be dependent upon weather and snow conditions.

Everest Base Camp: 17700ft. / 5380m
Base camp is situated at the Khumbu Glacier, on active ice which melts during monsoon and camp side moves slightly every year. Our professional base camp sherpa and helpers manage comfortable camp side. There will be practice ladders at Base Camp so that Members will have the chance to become familiar with how to walk across these before travelling through the Icefall for the first time. We take plenty of time exploring Khumbu Ice Fall, Kala Pathar, Gorakshep for well acclimatizes before we head to the Camp 1.

Camp 1: 19900ft. / 6065m
Camp 1 is situated at the height of 19900ft. / 6065m on flat area of snow endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun’s reflection from this place we get warm and hitting ambience at this place. In the night we listen the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent, where we have to walk to reach camp 2.

Camp 2: 21300ft. / 6500m
Camp 2 is situated at the height of 21300ft. / 6500m . It is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. Some time wind here seems very violent enough to destroy the tents. Hear bad clouds roll-in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp 2. After climbing these palaces we reach camp 3.

Camp 3: 24500ft. / 7470m
Located at the height of 24500ft. / 7470m., adjoining to mount Lhotse wall. After climbing 4000ft by using fixed rope on Lhotse wall prior acclimatization it leads us to camp IV. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep allow bands (lose, down -slopping and rotten limestone). From their 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). As you are climbing over 22000ft oxygen should probably be use incase of needed.

Camp 4: 26000ft. / 7920m
Located at height of 26000ft / 7920m. It is the last camp of the Expedition to reach on top of highest mountain on earth; it is only about 500 m to the top. Camp4 to the summit is the final and dangerous climbing because it is weighty snowy and violent winds. The best way to reach on top is via the narrow South-East ridge and it 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 to the summit.
