Mount Everest expedition, the world’s highest mountain at 8848m high from sea level, is the ultimate objective in many climbers’ minds, a most compelling and challenging adventure. Everest’s summit ridge marks the border between Nepal and China. In Nepal the Name of Mount Everest is called Sagarmatha which means " Forehead of the Sky" and in the Tibetan language it is called Chomolungma or Qomolangma meaning “Mother of the Universe”. Spending fifty-five years of its conquest even it’s far nonetheless as beguiling and superb as ever. Sir Edmond Hillary and the late Tensing Norgay Sherpa were the first people on the Everest expedition to get to the top of the world’s highest peak on 29 May 1953. The current climbing route of Mount Everest was the route taken by late Hillary and Sherpa which is still the most opted route for many climbers today.
Expedition on Everest offers the widest and most interesting range of treks and also gives you the opportunity to behold the no way-seen-earlier than places ranging from mountains, glaciers, backpacking, and famous mountain trails. You may be rewarded with your first glimpse of Kusum Kanguru (6369m) Thamserku (6608m), Everest (8848m) and Nuptse (7879 m). Continuing the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche earlier than finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. Heading Lobuche is a vintage factor for some marvelous perspectives of Ama Dablam, Taweche and breath-taking sceneries second to none. Our around 40 days Nepal Everest expedition starts from Everest base camp after Gorakshep.
We ensure you have got the ideal competencies, bodily persistence, and mental practice. In the best interest of personal safety, success and team compatibility, adequate training and excellent physical condition are required. Climbers need to be in excellent physical condition for both personal enjoyments and to be an integral team member. An attempt on Mt Everest expedition is an enormous undertaking which requires a huge amount of dedication and determination. It will take about 60 days to mount an expedition on Mount Everest.

Early morning we take the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla with exploring beautiful panoramic mountain views including Everest Mountain it takes about 35 minutes scenic flight. When you reach Lukla your trek begins from there following a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of Dudh Koshi River. With the trail you will have a view of various Himalayan ranges and taken about three hours trek you will reach phakding and stay overnight at Guesthouse.
Today's after breakfast our trek initiate form phakding to Namche Bazar, the trail follows the dudh koshi vally north side, and through the pines, crossing it twice by the small bridge and reached at village of Manjo. This is the place of the entrance gate of Sagarmatha National Park. Along the way, you will rewarded with your first glimpse of the various peak like Kusum kangru, Thamseku, Everest and Nuptse. After a further steep ascent of about two hours we will reach the Namche Bazaar where we will spend the overnight at Guesthouse.
A day will be spent in Namche in order to adjust to the high altitude. We’ll go on a short trek to a museum celebrating the traditional customs of the Sherpa people. We will also hike up the Syangboche Airport around Everest View Hotel. From this point can be seen rewarding views of the Himalayas with a stunning sunrise and sunset over the panorama of Khumbu peaks, overnight at guesthouse.
After breakfast, the trek continues along the rushing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi, with magnificent views of the mountains. We trek to an altitude of 3860 meters today. After five hours we’ll reach Tengboche, where the local monastery can be seen. Inside the monastery are incredibly ornate wall hangings, a twenty foot sculpture of Buddha, and the musical instruments and robes of the Lamas. This is the place of our tonight overnight at Guesthouse.
This morning after breakfast, we take the path gradually descend through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily up to the village of Pangboche. This is directly opposite to Ama Dablam [6,856 m], and has exceptional views of the mountain, with the Gompa, mani walls and scattered pine trees in the foreground. As you gradually ascend, you find thick forests. This part of the trail is full of thorny and juniper bushes. A further two and a half hour’s walk brings you to Dingboche. Stay overnight at Guesthouse.
Today is our acclimatization day. After breakfast, we can steeply climb up to Nakartsang Gompa for the rare outstanding view of Mount Makalu (8463m.) along with Lhotse, Island Peak, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. The another option provided is a small side trip to Chhukung which takes about two and a half hours to go up and one and a half hours to come back to Dingboche. Stay overnight at Guesthouse.
The trail continues for 5-6 hours today, along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and passes by stone memorials for climbers who have perished on nearby summits. We continue to climb, heading to Lobuche (4930) which just a few huts at the foot of giant Lobuche peak. Some breathing problems may arise today due to the altitude, overnight at guesthouse.
Most of this day is spent climbing Mt. Kala Patar, a small peak (by Himalayan standards) reaching 5550m. The ascent is demanding, but the climber gets the most magnificent mountain panorama possible: Everest, the highest point on the planet at 8848m (29,028ft), towers directly ahead and on all sides loom the other giants: Nuptse, Pumori, Chagatse, Lhotse and countless verious peaks. If possible we will stay and watch the awe-inspiring sunset over Everest and its neighbours. We make a quick descent to Gorak Shep and stay overnight at Schedule Guest house.
While trekking to Everest Base Camp you pass through a trail, which weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier. During the spring season, you can meet some expedition teams at the Everest Base Camp. The number of teams is less during the autumn season. On the return leg, you can take a higher route to get a spectacular view of the Khumbu ice-fall and numerous mountains. You return to Gorak Shep and stay overnight at Guesthouse.
After that, we do not provide a day-to-day itinerary for the climbing period. Itinerary may be different according to Climbers stamina, weather condition, which is determined by the expedition leader and members. Guides will take a flexible approach based on what fits with climbers’ and their own experience.
The Camp 1 is situated on a horizontal area of deep snow sheltered by mountain walls. The area is warm due to sun’s reflection during the day, and at night the deep susurration, cracking sounds of crevasses beneath the tents can be heard.
Camp 2 is set at the thick foot of the icy Lhotse wall. Expect cloudy but pleasant weather.
The Camp 3, located adjacent to the Lhotse wall, is reached using fixed rope. The path takes us through the steep allow bands (lose, down-sloping, and rotten limestone). As we cross short a snowfield, the route takes us up the Geneva Spur to the east before coming to the flats of the South Col. beyond Camp 3, some climbers may feel minor discomfort due to the altitude, and the use of oxygen may be necessary. Every climber, member need to be careful about these circumstances.
Camp 4 is the last camp of the expedition and the riskiest section of the climb, just 450 meters from the summit. The narrow southeast ridge is taken to attain the south summits (8,750m), and from here it is easy to reach at Everest’s summit at 8,848 meters which is the final destination of a dream.
From the base camp the route to the summit can be divided into four separate sections:
The Khumbu Icefall
Khumbu Icefall is found at the head of the Khumbu Glacier, 5,486m (18,000ft) high and not far above the base camp. Southwest of the summit, the icefall is regarded as one of the most dangerous stages of the South Col route to Everest’s summit. The Khumbu Glacier forming the icefall moves at such speed that large crevasses open with little warning. The seracs (large towers of ice) found at the icefall have been known to collapse suddenly. Great blocks of ice tumble down the glacier from time to time, ranging from the size of cars to large houses. It is estimated that the glacier advances three to four feet (0.9m to 1.2m) down the mountain every day. Since the structures are continually changing, crossing the Khumbu Icefall is extremely dangerous. Even extensive rope and ladder crossings do not always prevent loss of life. Many people have died in this area –one such climber was crushed by a twelve-story block of solid ice. Exposed crevasses may be easy to avoid, but those buried under the snow can form treacherous snow bridges through which unwary climbers can fall. Extreme caution is urged at this stage of the expedition.
The Western Cwm
Walking into the Western Cwm is like entering the hall of the mountain gods. The gigantic walls of this awe-inspiring basin tower over you as we progress from Camp 1 toward the full expanse of the cwm above, with the west ridge of Everest to the left and the north face of Nuptse to the right. This is the narrowest section of the path, with gaping crevasses running across the relatively flat floor. These holes are so big that they are measured in terms of double-decker buses! Because of this, crossing them often requires stretching ladders stretched across. The crevasses add to the sense that, having passed through the labyrinth of the icefall, the gods have set one more task for you before reaching their inner sanctum. This final test usually includes at least one steep wall of ice, rising straight from the floor to produce a vertical step of about 30m (100ft), taking us up to the hallowed ground of the upper Western Cwm.
The Lhotse Face
Early in the season, when the face is still unmarked by human progress, this steep section makes for the most grueling and technically intricate day on the mountain. Gusting winds, snow plumes, and the sight of the steep face looming above greet you at the base of Lhotse after a steady morning walk to the very end of the Cwm, above Camp 2. Careful footwork will have you ascending this section confidently, where the laser-straight ascent – rising on a slope that seems to touch your nose – is in stark contrast to the zigzag maze of the icefall below.
Arrival in Camp 3, halfway up the Lhotse Face, gives you a truly rugged, high mountain experience. Platforms cut just wide enough for the tents will have been hewn out of the thick ice by the Sherpas ahead of our arrival. Once that work has been done, it’s a mass exodus of our Sherpas back down to the comforts below. The Sherpas play by Sagarmatha’s rules, and for them, a night on these exposed ledges is frowned upon by the mountain gods. Well, that’s what they say, but since it only takes an hour or so to return below, and they can be ready for work before we climbers have even risen for breakfast, why wouldn’t they take their rest to lower down? For those with slower legs, we settle here on the ledge for one of the most glorious sunsets view seen by any human in all time (save the Apollo astronauts, perhaps!).
Our camp is pitched in the lower neighborhood of Camp 3 (which can sprawl over several hundred meters up the slope), affording us better shelter from the winds than some of the tents perched above. After a night of re-hydration and an initial round of oxygen-rich sleep, we’ll return to the base camp and then all the way off the mountain to Dingboche. We’ll return here only once more, on the way to the summit.
When we next leave Camp 3 at 7,400m, you will be gripped by the first flush of true summit fever; down-suits donned, Top Out masks fitted, the first hiss of oxygen spreads from tent to tent as valves are cracked open. This marks the first day of climbing on “gas,” and the first stage of your ascent into the “death zone.”
The view does not disappoint either. The Nuptse Wall forms one half of the crescent bowl surrounding us, and the west shoulder of Everest the other. Down the valley, the towering peaks of Pumori and Lingtren, which rise with grandeur above the base camp, now look like insignificant ridges in the vast sea of Himalayan giants stretching out as far as the eye can see. The village of the base camp is long out of sight, now registered only by crackling radio transmissions during early morning calls.
The climb from Camp 3 launches another adrenaline-pumping attack on the senses as we inch up the steep Lhotse Face. Using an ascender on a fixed line, we grind up, slowly and steadily. After a grueling early morning, the effort is rewarded by a left turn across Lhotse toward the famous landmark of the Yellow Band. It’s no small relief at this point, as you will have ascended some 1200m (3700ft) from Camp 2. When you look down the sweep of the Lhotse Face, our tents will appear as tiny dots, like peppercorns scattered at your feet.
The second section rears up and onto the rocky Geneva Spur, adding exciting scrambling to the mix. The exhilaration of scrambling in such a sensational setting, combined with the apprehension of approaching 8000m and the anxiety of catching your breath on top of the Spur while drawing heavily through the oxygen mask needs the first-hand experience to comprehend. Turning the corner here, we’ll head across the home stretch to the highest camp at the South Col, on what seems to be flat ground. Now the fixed line disappears briefly, which lends an enticing sense of freedom, even though the wind usually picks up speed here, whispering caution. The last few meters of walking to the South Col inevitably brings with it a flood of emotions, since you’ve made all but the very last leap en route to the highest point on earth.
After a few moments of contemplation, it’s down to business. Navigating toward the relative shelter of our tents, there’s an immediate dash to remove damp socks, arrange boots to dry, tie-down crampons and ice axes outside, and dive into warm sleeping bags while setting to work on sparking up the stoves.
South Col to Summit
After an afternoon of rest and refreshment, as well as attempts to sleep (thwarted by excitement and adrenaline), the summit push begins between 10 p.m. and midnight. Typically the howling winds, which will accompany the team in the first hours of climbing, die down as the night continues.
We arrive at the small platform of snow known as the Balcony, where we change oxygen bottles, steal a few minutes rest, and make contact with the base camp, on standby maintaining a watchful vigil while we make for the top.
The route then turns to a sustained 300m (1000ft) climb up the southeast ridge toward the south summit. The climbing remains similar to the earlier sections: step, pause, breathe and repeat. Passing across some rocky steps at the top of the ridge, we reach the south summit. From here the view opens up to the Hilary Step and all the way up to the top. Depending on whether we have changed oxygen bottles at the Balcony, we may switch again here.
Above the tangle of fixed lines on the 40 ft Hilary Step, it’s about 100m (330ft) vertically between here and the summit. But the sheer drop down the Kangshung Face on one side and the southwest face on the other makes this section of breathtaking climbing both physically and emotionally hard. And the reward, of course, opens up at 8848m (29,028ft), where there’s no higher step in the world.
We hope to be on the summit in the early morning, with plenty of time to make the long descent to the South Col. After spending another night sleeping with oxygen, the team will descend from Camp 4 on the South Col, directly to Camp 2 and then, the next day, to the Everest base camp.
(We will provide High-Quality Camping Tents in each Camp)
After a successful summit of Mt. Everest, we will be taken back to Pheriche from Everest Base Camp where you get Guest House accommodation in full board basis.
After breakfast, we can have a morning visit to the research centre then, trek back to Tyangboche, an easier descent passing through rhododendron forest while continuing to walk to Tyangboche. It is a small village with a famous monastery offering you a spending view of Ama Dablam, green hills and river views. Stay overnight at Guest House.
After morning breakfast, we cross the suspension bridge over the Dudh Koshi river trek onwards to the kyanjuma the junction of the trinity ways to Gokyo Valley, Khumjung village and Namchebazzar. In the Evening, Explore Namchebazzar area and stay overnight at Guest House.
The last day of your trek leads from Namche Bazaar via Monjo to Lukla. The trek is pleasant, except for few short uphill climbs and then down to the Bhote- Koshi River crossing it three times.
