Mt.Everest Expedition

Information

Mount Everest Climbing Expedition is the eventual climbing expedition in the world. After the mountain was successfully climbed in 1953, many climbers have summited the top of the world. There are still hundreds of climbing aspirants on the Everest every year. The climbing expedition of the highest mountain in the world involves several days of trekking, acclimatization rest, acclimatization climb and several forays on the climbing route of the Everest before attempting the final summit bid.

Our Everest Expedition follows the route that takes you through high altitude passes in the Himalayas so that you can be properly acclimatized. Before venturing the on the climbing path of the Everest, the trip goes to climb an acclimatizing peak of Lobuche which is 6119 meters above sea level. After climbing Mt. Lobuche, we go to Everest base camp and start on the process of going up and down on the camps for several days before starting the final ascent bid of the top of the world.  Following the south col route, our expedition moves towards the summit under the expert and safe guidance of the trained and experienced team of Sherpa guides.

Taking the immense challenge involved into consideration, we employ the best team of the climbing Sherpa to lead the expedition and with their expert guidance, careful supervision, your strong will and determined effort, and favorable weather, the expedition comes to successful conclusion. Our only goal is to take the expedition to immense success safely. Our team actively stays in touch with the clients before starting the trip to prepare them for the one of the biggest climbing expeditions in the world. We continuously send our expert advice related to the expedition to our valued clients so that they are well prepared to make their adventure of life time a success.

Summiting the top of the world is the dream of many and Adventure Mountain Nest is always there in their support with an excellent team of experts to make their dream come true.

Take an early morning flight to Lukla, the gateway town to the Everest trek. Flying for about 45 minutes enjoying spectacularly beautiful view of the middle hills and mountains of Nepal, we land at the airstrip of Lukla. We, then, meet our complete trekking crew at Lukla and proceed on our trek for the day towards Phakding. After a four hours’ trek on a gradual downhill trail, we reach the small village of Phakding on the bank of beautiful Dudh Koshi River.

Stay overnight at a teahouse.

Day 04: Phakding – Namche 3440m

The trek for the day today that starts after breakfast at the teahouse goes mostly uphill to Namche. We come across several suspension bridges that allow us to connect from one mountain to the other across rivers and gorges. The effort of the trek is rewarded by the spectacular beauty of Namche bazar and the view of the Himalayan peaks from here.  The stunning mountain peaks seen from this homeland of the famous Sherpas are… This homeland of famous climbing tribe Sherpa, who have the roots centuries back into Tibet, has become the ethnic Sherpa town for ages now when they migrated to the Everest region crossing the Himalayas.

Development of tourism activities in the Everest region has brought a significant change in the social and economic lives of Sherpa community as they have been the most preferred climbing assistants and trekking guides. All local Sherpa households of Namche bazar have been benefitted from the tourism industry as they have been able to run hotels at their own hometown.

Stay overnight at Namche Bazar.

Day 05: Acclimatization Day

We spend an extra night here at Namche Bazar as part of the acclimatization to the high altitude climate. We will take a day hiking trip to one of the hiking destinations in the area. We come back to Namche bazar for the overnight stay.

Day 06: Namche – Thame 3800 m

Our trek for the day starts after breakfast and heads towards Thame to the west from Namche. The walk along the river valley to the famous Sherpa village of Thame is astoundingly beautiful. This small village of Sherpa community has brought many legendary mountaineers to the world. The childhood home of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, the first man to summit the Everest along with Sir Edmund Hillary, is also the birthplace of record holder Everest summiteer Appa Sherpa who has 21 successful Everest Summits on his bag. Thame was also a year round village on the salt trading route that stretched from Tibet to India via Nepal. We are going to stay overnight in such a beautiful village of legendary mountaineers and historic importance.

Day 07: Thame – Lunghden 4380m

About six hours long walk today takes us to Lunghden on a gradual elevation gain during the walk. The walk today brings us face to face with the landscape above tree lines. So we will be walking mostly on the barren land without any trees and is a different experience of the walk than what we have covered so far on the trek. We will also have views of the Himalayas in distance. Once we reach Lunghden which is an easy base to do the Renjo La pass tomorrow, we stay overnight at a lodge.

Day 08: Lunghden – Renjo La 5360m – Gokyo 4750m

The trek today brings some of the most spectacular views to make the day one of the most wonderful ones. The trek today goes past Renjo La pass at the elevation of 5340 meters above sea level to reach Gokyo. Once we are at the pass, we are rewarded with stunning views of snow-capped mountain peaks on Rolwaling and Mahalangur Himalayan range. After enjoying the incredible Himalayan peaks from the pass, we descend down towards Gokyo village.

Stay overnight at Gokyo.

Day 09: Gokyo Exploration Day

We take our day to explore the majestic beauty of Gokyo village and surrounding wonders. We take an early morning hike up to Gokyo Ri at the elevation of 5483 meters above sea level to enjoy a spectacular view of Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu. We walk back down to Gokyo and make an afternoon walk to the Fifth Lake and later explore Nagjumba Glacier.

After spending an incredible day in and around Gokyo, we spend overnight here at Gokyo itself.

Day 10: Gokyo – Dragnag 4700m

Comparatively a short walk today, we trek towards Dragnag via the third lake. The walk takes us past glacial moraine and shortly to Dragnag thereafter. After the beautiful short walk of the day, we reach Dragnag and explore the place for the rest of the day or simply take a leisurely time to rest.

Stay overnight at Dragnag.

Day 11: Dragnag – Cho La 5420m – Dzonghla 4830m

It’s a long day today which takes us to Dzonghla for overnight stay. The walk goes past a high Himalayan pass called Cho La at the elevation of 5420 meters above sea level. Today is not only a long day of trek but also a difficult walking day. The day starts early to trek up towards Cho La pass passing through huge boulders. We walk on narrow and icy path through the pass thus have to be extra careful not to slip. After crossing the pass, we descend down towards Dzonghla where we spend overnight today.

Day 12: Dzonghla – Lobuche 4940m

Today we are going to meet the regular Everest base camp trekking trail when we reach Lobuche for our overnight stay. We are heading closer to the base camp of Everest as we walk further ahead towards Lobuche along the Khumbu valley. Once we reach Lobuche, we will meet trekkers making their way to the Everest base camp along the regular trekking trail to the base of the world’s highest mountain.

Day 13: Lobuche – High Camp 5400m

We trek to High camp today walking past the Lobuche base camp. As we walk along the glacial path, we are stunned with the spectacular view of Himalayan peaks of Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Kangtega etc. After going past the base camp, our trail turns into rocky moraine that leads us to the high camp. Once we reach the high camp, we settle on our tents and our pre climbing orientation begins.

On the orientation, we will talk about all the climbing techniques and use of climbing equipment. As a group adventure, we will feel motivated by the expectation of each other in the group, their skills and determination for the adventure. Doing so, the day will allow us ample time to well acclimatize for the summit attempt that lies ahead of us.

Day 14: High Camp – Summit 6119m – Lobuche

The day for us starts really early today almost right after midnight. As we have to be at the summit before noon, we need to start early. High mountains are extremely windy thus dangerous in the afternoon. So we try to be on the summit as early as possible in the calm morning. The first section of our walk towards the Lobuche peak summit goes on the rocky surface and the second section is tricky icy one. The second surface climb needs the help of climbing rope which will be fixed by our climbing guide. The snowy surface has several crevasses so it is highly important and necessary that we follow the guide’s instruction like a small children do of their parents. Eventually, after the strenuous effort and dodged will power, the summit of the Lobuche peak is blessed to us. We celebrate the achievement of the summit, enjoy some quality time at the peak and take pictures. The panoramic view of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Lhotse, Nuptse and many other Himalayan peaks is something that lures us to stay on the top. But we know we have to head back down before it starts getting the blow of wind so we start making our way down towards the high camp.

Stay overnight at high camp

Day 15: Reserve Day

This contingency day ensures our unhindered and successful climb because of some unforeseen circumstances like bad weather for the climb or flight delays etc. 

Day 16: Lobuche – Everest Base Camp

We trek to Everest Base camp via Gorakshep and set our camp. From this day onward we look forward on our way up towards the summit of the Everest. Trying multiple acclimatizing processes, we take our time to go higher with the condition of weather.

Day 17 – 40

During this period, we climb up to camp I, II and III and return back to Base Camp as part of our acclimatization process. As we acclimatize during the period, our team of Sherpa climbers will stock up all the camps with all necessary things for us. Before we venture on our final climbing attempt to the top of the world, we will spend overnight at camp III and head towards the base camp for few days of rest.

 

 

Day 41 – 64

We venture on the final climbing bid to the top of the world. We aim to reach the summit in between the days from 44 – 54. We will be assisted by climbing Sherpa guide on our summit process. Once we attempt the summit, we slowly make our way back down to base camp and down towards Lukla to fly back to Kathmandu and home.

 

NB: The number of the days might differ depending upon the weather condition and acclimatization situation. Our top and only priority is to take all our climbers to the top safely and bring them back down.
