Mount Everest Expedition Climbing Level

Mount Everest Expedition

Mount Everest expedition is all about the greatest height. Predictably, nobody knows what is going on there. But the experience of our climbing guides has paid off several times in a positive manner to the success of our climbers. At 8000 m, the amount of oxygen is low. That is not good for our blood. To tackle this, we carry enough oxygen cylinders. Only one out of ten become the victims of altitude mountain sickness at an altitude of 3000 m plus. But we know they need acclimatization. Medicines have been provided to them. On the trekking routes, there are health posts. Overall the journey is loaded with expert people. You can assume you are at the safest hands.

Itinerary

Detailed Itinerary

    • This is your first day on Nepali soil. Outside the airport, we are waiting for you. And then we take you to a hotel or our office depending on the arrival time. Our office opens till 6 PM. If you arrive late, we will take you to a hotel. There will be a briefing on your expedition and a welcome drink will be provided. In the late evening, you can go for a walk. Thamel is a hot destination for tourists.

    • This consists of meeting other climbing guides. All of them are Sherpas. They are licensed and certified to take you to the summit of Mount Everest. They will also take you to a shop to buy the climbing equipment. After checking the equipment, you can also go sightseeing. Our city guide will arrange this. Kathmandu has a lot of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Bhaktapur and Lalitpur. This is followed by an orientation class on climbing. There is also a Q and A session.

    • We take an early flight after breakfast. After we land at the Lukla airport built by Sir Edmund Hillary and the Sherpas in the mid-1960s, we head to Phakding by walking. The trekking trail heads to the Dudh Kosi River. Dudh means milk in Nepali. Most of the time, you will be on the side of this river. The trekking trail also takes you to Ghat. Phakding is the last destination you are heading to.

    • As we continue, we follow the Dudh Kosi River. We walked through the pine forest. After this, there are suspension bridges and before. There are small villages, and their names are Zapute, Toktok, Benkar, Chumoa, and Monjo. The walk also takes you to the Sagarmatha National Park. Another highlight is the Hillary Bridge. After crossing, you walk uphill to reach Namche Bazaar. From the way, you will see a good view of Thamserku, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Kusum Khangru mountains.

There are small villages, and their names are Zapute, Toktok, Benkar, Chumoa, and Monjo. The walk also takes you to the Sagarmatha National Park. Another highlight is the Hillary Bridge. After crossing, you walk uphill to reach Namche Bazaar. From the way, you will see a good view of Thamserku, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Kusum Khangru mountains.

    • This is not a rest day at all. You will do a short hike to Thame. This is a small village of Sherpa people in comparison to Namche. Other villages that are around it are Khumjung, Khunde, and Khongde. You can use your spare time to visit the attractions of Namche like the National Park Head office, museum, and monasteries. Of all the villages, Namche is the largest village in the Everest region.

    • The trekking trail goes by the Dudh Kosi River, offering the splendid view of Everest, Lhotse, Taboche, and Amadablam. Amadablam is the world’s most beautiful mountain. Looking at this mountain, you reach Tengboche. The main highlight of this place is the Tengboche monastery. You will fall in love with the religious aspects of the monastery. There is also a prayer ceremony. Our guide will take you there to show the performance of puja by the Buddhist Lamas.

    • You head to the Imja Khola, a river. The trekking trail descends this time. But from the Khola, it goes uphill to take you to Pangboche. One of the attractions of the village is the Pangboche monastery. Others are chortens and maniwalls that have religious significance. Following the trekking trail, you will Pheriche and Dingboche. The stone wall of Dingboche might attract you.

    • This is not a rest day at all. It is time to visit nearby villages. You will become familiar with their lifestyles. It is also time to go deeper into the Sherpa culture. And the views are always attractive. One of them is Nagartsang peak. The walk to the top of this mountain is rewarding. You are at a vantage point. The natural beauties win your heart so much that you cannot express it in words.

    • The walk consists of the view of the mountains that are at a stone-thrown distance. Their names are Pumori and Khumbutse. At the same time, who can ignore the beauties of the Khumbu glacier? There are also moraines on the way, another highlight. This part of the trek is steep. Before you did this, the trek was easy. On the way, there is a memorial site of Babu Chhiri Sherpa who died while climbing. We will pay our homage to him. Becoming a part of these, you will reach Lobuche.

    • On the way, you reach Gorakshep. It is time to rest there before heading to the Everest Base Camp. It is also the place where you will see a lot of trekkers. Some of them have returned from the base camp. If they are from your country, you can go into a conversation. It is always interesting to hear about the attractions of the base camp. After all, it is one of the highest base camps in the world. It is also an achievement that deserves to be mentioned in your diary.

    • At the base camp, you will do the preparation of using a ladder, fixed rope, harness, carabiner, and ice-ax. You will have knowledge of crossing crevasses. The guide will try their best to familiarize you with these things so that you can use them like a pro. They become very important while crossing the Khumbu Icefall. From there, you head to Camp II and the Lhotse Wall. There are crevasses on the way. After this, you reach the Western Crown. Following the trail, you reach Camp III. The next is camp IV from where you head to the Hillary Step. The ridge that lies ahead takes you to the summit of Everest. After spending some time there, it is time to retrace the climbing path.

    • It is our responsibility to do so because we had spent some days and nights there. Our team has been waiting for us. While they were doing so, they used plastic water bottles and cut vegetables. They also peeled off potatoes. All these are on the base camp, once the most untouched place in the world. You are also likely to see cans and other kinds of trash. So, it is our moral responsibility to collect and deposit this garbage.

    • But it is time to retrace the trekking trail. As you do so, you will reach Gorak Shep and Lobuche once again. There is also a junction. From there, you head to Pheriche. That is a shortcut to Pheriche. This is also a different route. You will also see a different natural beauty that you haven’t seen before from Pheriche to the Everest Base Camp. But what you are going to do is it is your second last night in Pheriche.

    • Today’s walking distance is long. You will know this as you reach Tengboche and Phungi Thanga. There is also a small jungle. But most of the time, you will be walking a steep trekking trail. On the way, you will stop for lunch. Later, the trail climbs uphill and becomes flat and easy just before it reaches Namche Bazaar.

    • It is all about walking downhill. You are likely to see rhododendrons blooming in the month of May. Once again, you will see beautiful waterfalls amid a green pine forest. The best place to have lunch will be Phakding. After crossing suspension bridges and visiting small villages, you will reach Lukla.

    • We will take an early flight after breakfast. From the window, see the last view of the mountains. It is going to be a thirty-minute flight to Kathmandu. After you reach the hotel, take a shower to refresh yourself. In your free time, visit Thamel. Also, you can buy a souvenir for your family.

    • This is important because bad weather might affect Lukla. If the weather is fine, then you can finish your trip on day 62 and depart from Nepal on the same day. But it is good to be on the safe side. We recommend you to have this day in your program.

    • We will come to pick you up prior to 3 hours. and you will be taken to Tribhuvan International Airport in our private transportation. So be ready with your belongings.

FAQ's

    • On day 56, you will reach the top of Mount Everest. How is the day? Nobody can express it in their words. The expression needs a style but to call the Everest expedition as a success is a big achievement that gives a sense of joy even before attempting it. After all, you are heading to the roof of the world. The journey up there is scenic. What you have predicted may be the opposite? But that is the part of the expedition. As you are ready to take it in, you should also take into account 7 extra days. So, 63 days is enough for a well-planned successful Mount Everest expedition.

    • There are rocks, ice, steep slopes, crevasse, and snow on the climbing trail. You can easily cross them with the skills taught by our climbing guides by carrying heavy packs. Also, expect an extreme climate for a long time. Expect thin air and a deadly storm. Using a crampon on ice can be challenging and so can abseiling from rocks. Snow camping is another.

    • Without any prior climbing experience, it would be a seriously big risk to even dare. Even experienced climbers can face difficulties during the Mount Everest expedition. While Mount Everest is not the most technical mountains in terms of summiting, it still requires good fitness level and certain level of climbing expertise.
