Everest was first summitted by Tensing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via south col. The expedition we organise 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 trekkers prefer summiting Everest from south col as the north col from Tibet border was closed for foreigner after the cultural revolution in china in 1950s.
To summit the world’s highest peak, you require mountaineering experience of climbing expedition at least of 6000 meters along with experience of scaling difficult alpine mountain peaks. It would be easier for you if you also have some climbing experience in peaks above 7000 meters in the Himalayas. While climbing to the Everest we will be using 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 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 aluminium ladders. The way to camp 1st is just a test for your experience, once you are at Camp 1st elevated at 6400m real challenge of expedition starts with dry air everywhere. Using oxygen will be key to summit Everest.
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, elevated at the height of the 6,750 meters and located in the foot of icy mount Lhotse wall from where we must go on ahead for summiting the Everest. Weather around camp 2 is good but at times wind brings clouds rolling from lower Himalayan Range to the place where camp 2 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 snows.
Camp 3, elevated at height of 22300ft and is adjoining to the wall of Mount Lhotse. To reach camp 4 from this camp we need to climb the 4000ft wall of Lhotse using 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-slopping 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 is also the final camp for 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 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 during 1953.
