Overview

Climbing the highest mountain peak in the world is every mountaineer’s wildest dream. The highest mountain peak in the world is Mount Everest (8848m). Mt. Everest is also called “Sagarmatha” in Nepali and “Chomolungma” in Tibetan language, meaning “Mother Goddess of the World.” Mount Everest lies in the border of Nepal and Tibet. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first to climb Mt Everest in 1953.

Our company offers an exciting tour package of Mt. Everest Expedition that combines the expedition of Mt. Everest with trekking adventure. The climbing route from Nepal is from the southern slope. The trip starts with trekking to Everest Base Camp via Phakding and Namche Bazaar. The lower part of the Khumbu region boasts of lush rhododendron trees, and there are glacial moraines on the upper part.

The ascent to Everest is not as easy as it looks on paper. The high altitude of the region makes the oxygen levels decrease, which makes it harder for breathing. Technical skills using ice ax, fixed ropes, crampons are essential in this expedition. The Everest Base Camp situated at the foot of the icefall is around 5300m. Usually, you will spend 4-5 days at the base Camp acclimatizing before you are ready to climb the Khumbu icefall. After climbing the Khumbu icefall, you will return to Base Camp for rest.

Similarly, you will climb to Camp 1 and stay there for two nights and again return to Base Camp. You will climb back to Camp 1, rest there for a night and climb to Camp 2 before returning to Base Camp. This process of continuous ascending and descending is the acclimatizing period. This process makes the ascent quicker than previous ones. This process continues for a few weeks before you start the climb to the summit of Everest.

The acclimatizing period is the most important as well a most time-consuming period in the expedition. The breathtaking panorama of the Everest region from the Everest summit of Everest simply enchanting. Similarly, you will need to take rest at different Camps rather than head down continuously to retain energy. There is another route called the North Ridge route, which is technically challenging due to a rocky path.

An expedition to Mt Everest is a serious undertaking and requires extreme commitment, guidance, and training. Our company ensures you of the full expert assistance in your successful ascent of the highest mountain peak in the world. We provide excellent services and facilities at a reasonable cost. Here are the detailed itineraries.

Best Time for Mt. Everest Expedition

Weather conditions at the Everest Summit are naturally extreme and susceptible to change. The unpredictable, extreme climate conditions and changing temperatures play a crucial part in determining the best time for the expedition. The temperature at the summit is -36 degrees Celsius at an average in January, which is the coldest month, and it can drop up to -60 degrees. In July, which is the warmest month, the average temperature is -19 degrees Celsius.

The ideal time to ascend Mt Everest is the spring season. The climbing window between April to May is the best time for mountaineers to the summit. The peak is mostly visible and clear. Besides, a small window from September to October in the autumn season is also suitable for ascending Mount Everest. The autumn season comes after the monsoon season and is the peak time for the ascent. The moderate weather and the absence of monsoon clouds are a plus.

The Difficulty Level of Mt. Everest Expedition

Needless to say, climbing the highest mountain peak in the world is extremely challenging. You will be operating with minimal oxygen that impairs your decision-making skills. The freezing temperature, massive gears, heavy clothes that weigh you down, and little to no sleep are the few factors that make the Everest expedition quite tough.

The climb is not as easy as it looks on paper. The individual climb is quite easy to some extent. The Khumbu Icefall is an extremely dangerous hurdle on the way to Everest. The Khumbu Icefall is a frozen waterfall that is still moving slowly. The climber must learn the technicalities of using ice ax, fixed ropes, and crampons. They must practice their skills in other smaller peaks before attempting Everest. Other factors like altitude sickness, hunger, sleep deprivation, exhaustion, and frostbite increase the risks of the expedition.

The climb to the summit begins from midnight to the early hours of the morning in freezing temperatures to avoid afternoon winds. Hence, these all factors make the climb to Mount Everest quite challenging. The exhaustion gets to you during the descent, and there is a risk of collapse. But many helpful porters and Sherpa guides help you in every step of the way. The main reason for fatality in the Everest region is the stubbornness of the climbers who want to summit Everest at all cost. You should always put your safety first and listen to the experts and the team leader.
