Mount Everest expedition is the most famous expedition in the world as it is the highest mountain (8848m) in the world. Peak IV, Third Pole, Qomolangma (Chinese Name), Sagarmatha (Nepali name) are the other name of the Mount Everest. The South face is recognized to lie in Nepal whereas the North face is in China’s autonomous state Tibet. Mount Everest Expedition was first 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. March /April and October/ November are the best time for Everest Expedition via North.
The successful ascents of the world’s highest peak “Mt. Everest” has been achieved many times in these years. It is still as miraculous, exhilarating and splendid as ever and it has been an ultimate dream for every adventure seeker to reach on its summit. Everest expedition North face from Tibet is categorized as E4 difficulty level which is strenuous with difficult climbing routes. This expeditions from North side has become more popular as it is relatively safe. This is also economical than the southern side of Nepal. We start our journey with a flight to Lasha, then drive to Tingri. We then trek through well-known Buddhist Monastery at Rongbuk (4880m) to reach Rongbuk-Chinese Base Camp (5200m) as per itinerary. Then we approach North Base Camp with proper acclimation at Advance Base Camp and Middle camp to summit north side of Everest.
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 and 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 ko keep in mind for prevention during expedition.
Each member of the expedition must have high degree of physical fitness and mental preparation with appropriate climbing training or mountain climbing such as covering climbing techniques, glacier travel, rope fixing, ascending, descending, safety techniques, abseiling, belaying, use of oxygen, mask and regulator and proper understanding of mountaineering skills etc before heading to higher elevation.
Climber should have proficiency of at least 6,000 meters, mixed with a multitude of Alpine mountaineering or alternatively have taken part in a previous 8,000 meters expedition. Our statistics indicates, those who have been to 7000 to 8,000 meters peak previously have a significant chance of getting to the top of Everest. We would strongly advise you to climb one of the other 7000 or 8,000 meters peaks before heading to Everest, as to ensure your financial investment as well as successful ascent and a safe return hpme. Exceptionally, however, climbers who have not had the chance of climbing 7000 to 8,000 meters peak may consider Everest if they have an adequate depth of experience.
This expedition is not “guided” because this is not a realistic proposition in the high-altitude realm of 8,000 meters and above. “Guiding” and being “guided” implies the intimate supervision and care of a “client” by a “Guide” who can be responsible for the direct and immediate control of safety. On Everest, such a direct duty-of-care, implicit in the traditional guide-client relationship, is not possible.
Everest Expedition via North lies in Tibet, northeast ridge route, begins from with the trek to the Rongbuk Glacier accessible from Tingri by jeep to Chinese Base camp (5,180m), which is located on a gravel plain just below the glacier.
There is an intermediate Middle Camp before reaching the Advance Base Camp. To reach Middle Camp climbers ascend the medial moraine of the east Rongbuk Glacier up to the base of Changtse (6,100 m).
The Advanced Base Camp (6500m) is below the North Col as well as there are 3 camps above before final summit push. The route is in a way more technical because there is more exposed rock and the weather is much more severe than on Nepalese side as it is exposed to winds all the time.
Camp 1 is located on the North Col, where climbers traverse long and humdrum acclivity of the glacier to the toe of the Col. Rigid rope and a ladder is used to ascend to the camp 2 (7,775m) from the north ridge(7,010m).
From Camp 2 the diagonal motion along the North Face leads to foot of Yellow Band and we reach Camp 3 (8,230m) where we phase the final summit as it is our last camp.
There are three popular Steps after camp 3.
First Step (8,500 m) is a risky path to the core of the climb.
Second Step (8,580 m) called “Chinese ladder” aids vertical climbing.
The Third Step is (8,690 m) inconsequential step with a snow slope of 50 degrees as well as the final summit ridge to the summit apex
