Mt. Everest Expedition 8,848m

55 Days

Fully guided expedition to the world’s highest mountain

Everest [8,848m/29,029ft] Being the highest mountain in the world is the ultimate dream of every climber. Climbing Mount Everest is undoubtedly the ultimate mountaineering adventure and every adventure seeker wants to be a part of the rich history of climbing Mount Everest but the journey to the summit of Mount Everest is not without its challenges. With the experience of guiding groups to the summit of Mt. Everest, we have successfully made many people’s dreams come true.

Everest Expedition (Climbing Special)

— 1:1 Sherpa guide to client ratio
— Expedition Manager/Sirdar
— Maximum oxygen flow 11 bottles (8 for you and 3 for your Sherpa)
— Premier climbing experience on Mount Everest
— A cohesive team of climbers
— Ascent of Lobuche Peak for acclimatization
— Guided by some of the best guides and experienced Sherpa team.

Our Everest climbing itineraries are designed with experience, planning and careful attention to allow maximum days for the approach, the highest level of service and a strong team of guides. We offer campaigns with safety priority and service paramount. We provide additional oxygen support and comfortable logistics at Base Camp and Camp 2. Such: We follow the standard trekking route to Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorkshep and finally Everest Base Camp. Upon arrival at base camp, settle in and get organized as we prepare for the actual climb.

A pre-training session/climbing course will be conducted at Base Camp, Ice Seraks of Lower Khumbu Glacier to check climbers’ equipment and review climbing and rescue techniques. Instead of frequenting the Khumbu Icefall you will also climb Lobuche East as part of your custom climb. Lobuche is one of the most exciting 6000m trekking peaks in the East Everest region. Lobuche East Climb serves as a perfect training base for climbing Mt. You will climb Lobuche East wearing your high-altitude shoes and equipment to get you comfortable. This peak not only provides an attractive diversion allowing members to refresh and update their mountaineering skills before heading to Everest but also provides an excellent part of the acclimatization process. Climbing Lobuche East Peak before climbing the actual Mt. not only helps to create an environment but climbers do not have to cross the Khumbu Icefall multiple times to visit the high camp. After the climb, we will go to the base camp and after observing the auspicious date according to the Tibetan calendar, we will hold a puja ceremony in the traditional Sherpa way, asking for blessings for a successful Mt.

Our second acclimatization phase begins with a tour of the high camps that lead to the edge of the infamous Khumbu Icefall. Four camps will be established above the base camp. We will prepare Camp 1 [5,900 m/19,500ft] on the summit of the icefall, Camp 2 [6,400 m/21,000ft] in the Western Cwm, which will be our advanced base camp. We will set up Camp 3 [7,300m/23,700ft] at the top of the Lhotse Face cirque. Camp 4 [7,900m/25,912ft] will be the last camp before climbing the summit. Camp 4 will be located at South Col. Your expedition leader will give you the best advice according to your situation. Typically, our acclimatization program involves overnighting at Camp 2 and tagging along to Lhotse Face/Camp 3. After this is done, we rest and recover at base camp while waiting for a weather window for the summit attempt. After camp 3 oxygen cylinders will be used for easy ascent. We provide 8 bottles of oxygen to each climber for maximum flow. From Camp 4, following the southeast ridge, we will make it to the South Summit from where we will proceed to Hillary Step before climbing to the summit.
