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

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.
