Mount Everest Expedition 2023 Video

Nepal is a country that contains over 1310 snow-capped peaks and there are 8 out of 14 peaks above 8000m. And, being said that Nepal is a country of mountains every year thousands of tourists visit Nepal for trekking around the mountains and some want to summit peaks. Mountaineering in Nepal has become prime activity, you can choose Mountains to summit based on your experience and physical ability. Summiting Mt. Everest is one of the hardest of all and every adventurer wants to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain which stands 8848m from sea level. Once you can stand at top of the world’s highest peak then it’s probably the greatest pride for every adventurer.

Everest Expedition is considered one of the most difficult and greatest physical and mental challenges for every traveler and adventurer. Not everyone who attempts the Everest expedition is able to summit, only those with a brave heart and great guidance have been able to summit. We, here at Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition will help you with a matter of guidance and planning you just need a brave heart for summiting the Everest and creating your own legends.

Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition offers you the most adventurous service filtering and managing effective time so that you can get every inch of fun and adventure while traveling with us. We as well have managed the expedition package to Everest. The Everest expedition is the most dangerous and difficult adventure on the earth. If you are not equipped with proper gear then you will face greater consequences. So, while summiting Everest you must not make even one slightest mistake. If you are traveling with Himalayan Scenery then we will first provide you with high-quality equipment and ensure your safety more than anything.

Everest was first summitted by Tensing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via south col. The expedition we organize to Everest retraces the path followed by these legends. You can create your own story once you are able to stand at the top of Everest. Everest can be climbed from both the north as well as south side. Most of the trekkers prefer summiting Everest from the south col as the north col from the Tibet border was closed to a foreigner after the cultural revolution in China in the 1950s.

To summit the world’s highest peak, you require mountaineering experience of climbing expedition at least 6000 meters along with experience of scaling difficult alpine mountain peaks. It would be easier for you if you also have some climbing experience on peaks above 7000 meters in the Himalayas. While climbing to the Everest we will be using the fixed rope but you need to acquire the skill to ascend and descend fixed-line independent of those fixed ropes which will increase the efficiency of the whole expedition. Most of all you need to be more active and decisive so that you can take quick action while in need.

From the base camp, we need to cross-ice block, crevasses, and Seracs. We need to climb larger chunks of ice using fixed ropes and aluminum ladders.  The way to camp 1st is just a test for your experience, once you are at Camp 1st elevated at the 6400m real challenge of the expedition starts with dry air everywhere. Using oxygen will be key to summiting Everest.

Camp 1: 20000ft. (6,400m):

Camp 1 is situated between mountain walls and endless snow-deep crevasses. The air around here is a bit warmer and dry as the sun is reflected around this place. The tents are built above the crevasses that's why you will li0sten to some cracking sounds while sleeping inside these tents. In the morning we will be walking on these crevasses to reach the second camp.

Camp 2: 21000ft. (6,750m):

Camp 2, elevated at the height of 6,750 meters and located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall from where we must go on ahead for summiting the Everest. The weather around camp 2 is good but at times wind brings clouds rolling from the lower Himalayan Range to the place where camp 2 is located. Other than that wind here is violent enough to destroy our tents. To reach Camp 3, we need to do some climbing through edged rocks and sloppier snow.

Camp 3: 22300ft. (7,100m):

Camp 3, is elevated at a height of 22300ft and adjoining the wall of Mount Lhotse. To reach camp 4 from this camp we need to climb the 4000ft wall of Lhotse using a fixed rope. But before we climb to camp 4 we need to adjust to the environment around this level of altitude with prior acclimatization. Some climbers should not hesitate to use oxygen if they are feeling uneasy to breathe. From here we should ascend steeply through lose, down-sloping, and rotten limestone. Before we reach flats of the south col we need to cross certain snowfield, while the routes ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east.

Camp 4: 26000ft. (8,400m):

Camp 4 is also the final camp for the Everest expedition which is elevated at an altitude of 26,000ft. from here you just need to climb 500m to summit the world’s highest peak. The weather around here is most tough and dangerous as the winds are ferocious and violent. Making the climb more difficult, if you want the best route to the summit then pass via the narrow south- East ridge which precedes to south summit elevated at 28710 ft. from here you can easily achieve and reach the world’s highest peak elevated at 29028 feet. This same route was used by Tensing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmond Hillary while summiting Everest in 1953.

Once we have finished with our shopping and documentation of permits we will get ready to take our flight to Lukla early in the morning. Himalaya Scenery staff will drive you to the airport. Once you are at the airport you will board on small flight Lukla. The flight to Lukla is beautiful with a view of mountain scenes from the windows. Once you arrive at Lukla – the gateway to Everest, we will be gathering all the equipment’s and the crew who will be joining along with us for Everest expedition. once all the crew members and equipment are ready we will start our trek towards Phakding. After hiking for 4 hours on an easy and gentle downhill trail, we will reach Phakding. Phakding is a small town on the bank of a beautiful mountain river known as Dudh Koshi. Overnight at Phakding.

Hiking today to Namche bazaar will be a bit of a warm-up for our expedition as the trail we follow will mostly involve uphill with some steep going on for about 6 hours. Namche Bazaar is a prosperous mountain trading town in the Everest region. Here you will be able to experience the lifestyle of mountain peoples also known as Sherpas. From Namche bazaar, you will be able to see some spectacular views of Mountains such as Thamserku (6,6232m) and Kongde Ri (6,187m) to its west. Overnight at Namche Bazaar.

Today we will be giving our legs time to rest and prepare for the rest of the expedition. We will be hiking to Everest view hothe tel so that our legs don’t get stiff. From here you can get the astonishing view of Mount Everest one that you are going to summit within in few days. We will as well take you to the museum of Hillary anthe d Sherpa. We will as well explore the town, culture, and lifestyle of the mountain people. Overnight at Namche Bazaar.

Today we will be hiking to Tengboche which will last for about five hours. Tengboche is a beautiful village in the Khumbu region on a hill confluence of Dudh Koshi and Imja river. While hiking through Khumbu village you will be informed more about the expedition by other crew members. Once you are at Tengboche we will take you to visit Buddhist Monastery where rumor has Tensing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary were monks once in this monastery. Overnight at Tengboche.

Dingboche is a beautiful Sherpa village with the perfect place to get a breathtaking glimpse of Lhotse and Ama Dablam. To reach Dingboche we need to hike for about four hours. Today’s trial will include both ascending and descending parts which will be more exercise for you. Overnight at Dingboche.

The walk today involves crossing a small pass called Dughla also known as Thukla with several memorial shrines for the brave mountaineers who lost their lives during their climbing expeditions. Although the walk is slow-paced on the uphill trail, made difficult by the increasing elevation, it brings wonderful views of the mountains to our sight that helps us forget the strenuous effort we are taking up in the impressive mountain landscape. Today’s hiking will last for about four hours. Overnight at Lobuche.

We will be giving proper rest to our bodies as well as our minds. The air around here will be a little lighter than before so we need to adjust the air so further expedition is possible. Today’s acclimatization will be helpful for us. Other than that, we should not let our legs get stiff. So, to prevent our legs from getting stiff we need to go for a tour around Lobuche. We will return to our lodge after a short exploration around the Lobuche. Overnight at Lobuche.

We will minimize our hiking time to let our leg have rest. These short hikes will be helpful for making your leg active and strong. We first need to reach Gorakshep before reaching base camp it will help to make the hike shorter. We need to hike 2 hours to reach Gorakshep from Lobuche. Overnight at Gorakshep.

Today’s hike will last for two hours. This hike is shortened so that we can prepare for camping in Base camp. This will be the first day of camping on the Everest expedition. from here on rather than staying in a lodge overnight we will be camping overnight. We will further plan for the expedition. The real expedition will be starting from here. Overnight at base camp.

Starting today we will prepare our equipment and plans to summit the world’s highest peak. We will set our first goal to reach camp 1st which is elevated at 6400m. To reach camp 1st we need to utilize our skills as mountaineers. We need to climb on fixed rope and climb via an aluminum ladder. After completion of our first goal, we will take a day off for acclimatization so that we can adjust to the dry air in high-altitude other than that we need to plan to reach camp 2. While planning we need to determine the weather and every condition should be favorable before we make a climb towards camp 2.

After finishing up with the planning and checking out whether we will climb to camp 2 which is elevated at an altitude of 6,750m. The trail to camp 2 is harder so you must ensure the weather is favorable and every crew members are eligible to climb. If any of your crew members are unable to climb you must report for immediate rescue. We need proper planning in every phase of our climbing and proper gear should be equipped. Before making a climb on rope ensure the gear as well as your safety. Once we are at camp 2 we will take some more days for planning and acclimatization. Before we can summit Everest, we need to reach the other two camps they are camp 3 elevated at 7100m, and camp 4 elevated at 8400m. But before reaching these camps we need effective judgment, planning, sufficient oxygen, and equipment. so, we are executing a plan after reaching every camp. At camp 2 we will be planning for climbing to camp 3, here our crew will determine the perfect weather to make ascend to camp 3. If any of the climbers is even having a small difficulty you must report it to the crew so that they can make an effective judgment. After the initial planning and execution the plan we will be able to reach camp 4. If everything is fine and every climber, as well as crew members, can make it to camp 4 it will be more effective for us to summit the world’s highest peak.

Once we are at camp 4, the summit is just 500m further away from us. Even though it is near the climb is extremely difficult, so we need to make effective planning and should choose an effective day to summit the peak. After reaching the summit the descends will take as much time as ascending and as much planning is required. Once you are at your peak don’t get too excited and try to descend without any planning. If you are to descend unplanned it will be dangerous. So, even in time of descending you and your crew should check your gear, weather, and health condition of yourself. Once you arrive at the very first base camp then you can be proud of yourself for summiting the world’s highest peak.

After creating your own story by summiting Everest now it's telling your story to others. But before telling your story you need to descend towards Dingboche the same path we used while ascending towards the summit. After reaching Dingboche you can celebrate to successfully summiting the Everest. Overnight at Dingboche.

Morning around the Dingboche village is sparkling and clear. Once we have to fill up our bellies, we will start our morning walk descending back towards the Tengboche at 3860 meters. From Dingboche, it will take us about four hours to reach Tengboche. Once we reach Tengboche we will enjoy the view and end our day at tea house.

Today we will retrace our trail towards Namche Bazaar. The hiking will last for about four hours. Once we are at Namche Bazaar you can explore this trading village in the mountains. Overnight at Namche Bazaar.

Today’s it will take seven hours for us to retrace our path to Lukla. After hiking past rhododendron forest and some local village you will be able to reach Lukla. Once you are at Lukla you can explore around here and can enjoy the local food and cultural programs. Overnight at Lukla.

Enjoy the view of the high peaks one last time. Fill yourself with fodder and then get on the plane from the Tensing Hilary Airport to have views of the snow-capped peaks one last time. Upon our arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, we will drive you to your hotel.

After arriving at Kathmandu, we need to rest as our body has gone through rough climbing and dry air. We need to get fresh air and for that, you get the leisure day at Kathmandu. In the evening we will celebrate your success to summit the world's highest peak with a farewell dinner. Overnight at Kathmandu.

    As the last day on this trip, we drive you to the airport as per your flight schedule back to home or onward destination. We hope that you enjoyed the summiting the world’s highest peak with the view members of Himalayan scenery. And hope to see you for another adventure soon.
