The most renowned expedition and the ultimate dream of every climber on 8848m top of the word is Mount Everest Expedition via south. The South face is recognized to lie in Nepal whereas the North face is in China’s autonomous state Tibet. Climbing through south side is more thrilling and exhilarating although it is relatively lengthier and costlier. This route also offers the greatest chance of success climbing Mount Everest. The very first Expedition to Everest was led my British expedition John Hunt. In 1921, Lt. Colonel Charles Howard-Bury. On 29th May 1953 Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Nepali hero Tenzing Norgey Sherpa climbed summit successfully.
The successful ascents of the world’s highest peak “Mt. Everest” has been achieved many times in these recent years. Everest is still as miraculous, exhilarating and splendid as ever and it has been an ultimate dream for every adventure seeker to reach on its the Everest Summit Expedition via south.
We start our journey with an adventurous flight to Lukla with exhilarating mountain view and the trek via Namche Bazaar (3440m), Tengaboche (36600m), Pheriche (4270m), Lobuche (4910m), Gorak Shep (5140m) to reach Everest South Base Camp (5364m). We approach to south side through the Khumbu region of Nepal leading up to the Khumbu Glacier extending down to Lobuche (4900m).
Khumbu ice fall:
Khumbu ice fall is very dangerous as it is a sheer glacier with obvious implication of large cleft and hazardous unstable seracs (ridge of ice on the surface of a glacier) making navigation complicated and riddled with high objective danger of falling ice. Our expert climbing Sherpa team set the route through the icefall installing ladders across crevasses and along vertical seracs ice walls for efficient and easy climbing. We set our way; crossing very steep ice as well as snow slopes with crampon, rope as well as ladder led by climbing guide to reach the apex.
We are equipped with satellite telephone, transport loads, food, tents, oxygen, porters, and climbing Sherpa team, who are the best team and have proven themselves with multiple successful summits on Everest. Everest expeditions encounter many bearable as well as unbearable obscuration including harsh weather conditions, high elevation and altitude, and even mass rolling. Furthermore each member of the expedition must have high degree of physical fitness and mental preparation with appropriate climbing training or mountain climbing: we organize refreshment trainings at Base camp involving: covering climbing techniques, glacier travel, rope fixing, ascending, descending, safety techniques, abseiling, belaying, use of oxygen, mask and regulator etc before heading to high camp. These are the things climbers need to keep in mind for prevention during expedition.
