MT. EVEREST EXPEDITION (8,848.86M) Everest had fascinated mountaineers all around the globe since the 1920s when Tibet opened climbing in the early 1920s. In 1922 British Expedition team led by Charles Bruce tried to scale the summit of Mount Everest for the first time. Edward Norton, in his second attempt, along with the British Expedition team, set the height of 8572m. Unfortunately, the mountaineers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine disappeared on the third attempt. Mallory's body was found in 1999. Several attempts were made to Everest before the successful attempt made by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on 29 May 1953 via the South route. It is now reported that around 1000 ascent attempts are made every year.
The ratio of Sherpa to the climbing member is always 1:1. The ratio of western guide (if there is one) to climbing member is 1:3. The acclimatisation plan is a tried and tested regime which has the flexibility to accommodate the expected lousy weather periods and many variables that affect any summit attempt on an 8000-metre mountain. Therefore, we can offer Island Peak as an optional noticeable warm-up, plus Lobuche as a slightly harder option for an additional fee.
Our climb to the summit of Mount Everest is for reasonably experienced climbers. It provides experienced Sherpa support, supplemental oxygen, base camp and high camp equipment and logistics. We aim to provide a safe and enjoyable mountain experience for those ready to climb Mount Everest.
Who can climb Mt Everest?
Are you ready to face ten-hour treks and climbs day to day? Excellent physical condition is an absolute must during this expedition. The climbing stretches are challenging, with severe weather conditions and altitudes above 8,500 metres. Be prepared to climb on rugged, remote, extraordinarily rocky and icy terrain. In addition, the climb requires technical mountaineering.
Best Season for Mount Everest Expedition
The best season to go on the Everest expedition is between April and May, when the winds are calmer. The days are sunny, temperatures are mild, and the trail is gorgeous, with dense green forests, rivers, and streams. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the birds and animals and the uninterrupted views of the grand massifs throughout the trail. The overall journey gets even more beautiful during these months.
