Despite being the highest mountains on planet Earth, Himalaya Mountains including Mt. Everest are relatively younger than their American and European counterparts such as the Andes, the Alps, and the Rockies. European climbers were able to get close to Everest only when Tibet was open to outsiders in the 1920s. Since then, the Everest has fascinated the mountaineers all over the world. George Mallory gave the reason behind his interest in Everest Expeditions quipping, ‘Because it’s there’. Unfortunately, Mallory and Irvine disappeared high on the mountain in 1924. Mt. Everest was first summitted in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via the South Col. Everest is certainly a lifetime opportunity. Climbing Everest from the Tibet side is relatively easier and less costly than climbing from the Nepal side. Still, Everest expeditions encounter many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion.
We strive hard to conduct the best expedition program putting high importance on the safety aspects of the climb. After your arrival in Kathmandu Airport, you will be greeted at the airport by a staff from Himalayan Glacier Trekking and Expedition who will transfer you to the hotel. After that, we make your Tibet visa and other necessary documents for the Everest Expedition. After 3 days, we drive toward Nepal-Tibet border up to the Friendship Bridge. We take time to acclimatize with one night at Zhangmu (2300m) and two nights at Nylam (3750m). Then we drive to Tingri (4350m) where we spend further two nights for acclimatization. Then we drive to Everest Base camp (5200m) also called the Chinese base camp.

Sightseeing and Preparation for Everest Expedition. While the leader attends a formal briefing in the Ministry of Tourism, you will explore the fascinating city of Kathmandu. You will visit famous Stupa, Boudhnath and the popular Hindu pilgrimage site, Pashupatinath Temple. In the late afternoon, the leader will check everyone’s equipment, as Kathmandu is the last opportunity to buy anything missing. You will also get introduced with fellow expedition members and guides. Overnight at hotel.
Depending on the weather, we may explore around Base Camp (there are some fun places to camp at) for around a week or move up to Advanced Base Camp more quickly.
We have a puja to show respect for the mountain.
We plan one longer acclimatization trip on the mountain and we may make a second trip up to North Col. We will return to Base Camp to recover before making a summit attempt. We summit as a team in one or two groups. In general solo summit attempts without lots of backup are not possible.
