55 Days

Mt. Everest Expedition 8,848m

  • Fully guided expedition to the world’s highest mountain

Mount Everest [8,848m/29,029ft] being the highest mountain in the world is the ultimate dream of every climber. Climbing to Everest is undoubtedly the ultimate mountaineering adventure and every adventure seeker wants to be a part of the rich history of Everest Climbing but the journey to the summit of Everest is not without challenges. Which allows maximum days for the approach, the highest level of service and a strong team of guides.

We follow the standard trekking route to Everest base camp following Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorekshep and finally Everest base camp. Upon arrival at Base Camp, settle and get organized as we prepare for the actual climb an auspicious date as per the Tibetan calendar we will organize a Puja ceremony in a traditional Sherpa manner asking for blessings for a successful Everest Climb.

Similarly, four camps will be set up above the base camp. We will prepare Camp1 (5,900m/19,500ft) at the pinnacle of the icefall, Camp2 (6,400m/21,000ft) in Western Cwm, which will be our Advanced Base Camp. We will set up Camp 3 (7,300m/23,700ft) at the top of the cirque on Lhotse Face. Camp 4 (7,900m/25,912ft) will be the final camp before climbing the summit. Camp 4 will be placed in the South Col.

In general, our acclimatization program includes overnight at Camp 2 and tagging the Lhotse Face/Camp 3. And we rest and recover at the base camp while waiting for the weather window for the summit attempt. Oxygen cylinders will be used after Camp 3 for an 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 advance towards Hillary step before climbing to the summit.
