Reach to the top of the world and experience the heights

Undoubtedly, climbing Mount Everest in Nepal has proved to be a benchmark in the climbing arena in the whole world. Mount Everest summit can be accomplished both from the southern side in Nepal as well as the northern side in Tibet. The giant mountain receives overwhelming numbers, that is around 1000 summit attempts, each year. The tallest mountain in the world was first scaled in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa via the South Col.

Climbing a mountain above 8000m like Mt. Everest and reaching the summit is certainly a lifetime opportunity. Yet, an expedition on Everest could come with many seen as well as unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion. Nepal began welcoming mountaineers and experienced climbers to the Everest region after the cultural revolution in the 1950s when China closed the Tibet borders to foreigners. Since then the South Col to reach the top of Mt. Everest via the Khumbu Valley became popular among the climbers.

FAQs

The requirement of time varies depending on the various agencies, weather conditions and the approach. In general, climbing Mount Everest takes anywhere around two months or a little more. This includes time for gathering supplies, trekking to the base camp from Lukla, acclimatization to the altitudes, and ultimately reaching the summit. Getting acclimatized at different elevations is very important for a successful climb. Thus, you will be spending few days at the base camp before climbing higher. Similarly, you will also spend few days at camp 1, camp 2, camp 3 and camp 4 before actually getting to the top. Himalayan Glacier’s Everest expedition itinerary requires 70 days to complete the adventure, the first day being your arrival day while the next two days will be preparation day in Kathmandu. Day 69 will be the day you fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla and day 70 is the day you will return home. The total climbing days excluding the days required for trekking up to the base camp and acclimatizing there begins on day 19 and ends on day 64. So, reaching the top from the base camp requires 45 days in total including several acclimatization days in the high camps.

Weather conditions in Mount Everest is always predisposed to unpredictable variations. However, the best time to climb Mt. Everest is during the spring season. The months of April and May are the best times to reach up to the summit. During this time of the year, the peak remains mostly clear and visible. Besides, fall is yet another season that is suitable for climbing the Everest. September and October comes immediately after the monsoon in Nepal and is probably the peak time for the ascent. During this time of the year, the weather is moderate and there is no chance of rainfall. Apart from the main climbing seasons, Mt. Everest is always cold, and making it up to the summit is rather tough during any other time of the year.

Once you arrive in Kathmandu airport, we recommend you purchasing a local SIM card. You can use this SIM card to communicate with your friends or family when you are in Kathmandu and during the entire trek. But, when you are climbing the Everest, the SIM card won’t work, and if it does, communication is possible on a very limited basis. You can use a satellite phone (if you have one) or you may request us to supply a satellite phone for your expedition journey to the Everest.

Firstly, you need to get your insurance in your home country as it is not available in Nepal. It is mandatory for our clients to be protected against comprehensive expenses likely to incur due to health issues, accidents, flight cancelation, trip cancelation (due to pandemic, political riots or natural calamities), to join any of our trips. However, the insurance coverage is not necessarily the same for different travel packages. For the type of insurance coverage you will need to do this trip, you can visit our travel insurance section that contains all detailed information.

Depending on the nature of sickness, our climbing guide will always be alert to attend to any medical calls. Our climbing guides are fully leadership trained and intensive wilderness first aid trained. If you start feeling dizzy or weak, you need to inform him right away and he knows just the right thing for you. If the guide sees the symptoms of altitude sickness on you, he will make necessary arrangements to shift you to a lower elevation immediately. While if the illness is quite severe, you may need for a helicopter rescue as well. So make sure, that you have your insurance covered for helicopter rescue too, apart from medical and personal losses.

Climbing a Himalayan peak that is 8000m or above is a critically physical endeavor. No matter what, it is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure. Getting to stand at the pinnacle of the earth is undoubtedly one of life’s most rewarding experiences. The steep snow-climbing through ice chunks during the expedition tempts climbers to test, enhance and improve their mountaineering skills. When you consider climbing the Mt. Everest, you need to ask yourself several questions and be very candid about your outcomes. You need to be truthful about your physical fitness, technical capability to handle the terrains, and mental capability of the associated hardships in the high altitudes. You need to have a very high level of physical endurance and also a previous experience of having climbed a 6000-er, a 7000-er or even an 8000-er before attempting to scale the highest one. Climbing Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Shishapangma or Mt. Manaslu would be a perfect recommendation before trying out on Mt. Everest.
