Mount Everest is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure. To stand at the pinnacle of the Earth is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. As pioneers of guided ascents on Everest, Destination Holiday Trek & Expedition is recognized as the premier guiding service with a superb reputation for enabling members of our expeditions to achieve summit aspirations.
Mount Everest, a part of the Himalayan range, sits surrounded by other tall mountains, including Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, and Makalu. It lies inside the Sagarmatha National Park, which is recognized as a world heritage site in 1979 A.D. There are around 20 villages inside Sagarmatha National Park, home to about 6,000 Sherpas. With an area of 124,400 hectares, Sagarmatha National Park includes glorious mountains, deep valleys, stunning glaciers, exquisite high passes, and lush alpine forests inhabited by rare animals such as pandas and snow leopards.
Mount Everest lies in the Solukhumbu district in north-eastern Nepal.
Without doubt, 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 gigantic mountain receives overwhelming numbers, that is around 1000 summit attempts, each year. The tallest mountain in the world was first scaled in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary 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.
– Stand a top the highest point on earth
– Climb past the advanced base camp and four other camps to reach to the top
– Cultural trek into the scenic Sherpa homeland in the Khumbu region
– The grandest Himalayan sights of Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Ama Dablam & Mt. Cho Oyu
– Climb the Khumbu Icefall several times on acclimatization hikes, cross the Yellow Band and Geneva Spur, and ascend the Hillary Step
Summiting Everest is a very daunting task requiring both knowledge and technical skills. You need to pass through steep rock sections and ice sections that are often over 45 degrees grade. The expedition involves using several types of equipment, like crampons, ice ax(e), fixed lines, and bottled oxygen. You need to climb at terrains above 8,000m, known as “the death zone.” This expedition is not for the faint-hearted, and it requires months of training for those with physical and mental toughness.
It is worth knowing that Destination Holiday Treks and Expedition got a license from the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation of Government of Nepal and can organize expeditions in the Himalayas. There are not any foreign companies that can get such a permit or can operate without it. Only Nepalese companies are allowed to provide all kind of support for mountaineers. Even if you decide to choose any foreign company, it is allowed to operate through a Nepalese one and you will have to pay extra for intermediaries. That is why it is better to contact us directly and another reason is the fact, that we take responsibility for your safety, and provide you with all legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services once you get off the plane.
You must be mentally and physically tough to attempt to climb Everest (29,035 ft./8,850 m). If you are an ambitious average person, you need about a year of preparation to climb Everest. Consider that after avalanches, exhaustion and high altitude sickness lead to accidents on Everest. You should also know how to handle oxygen and mask regulators. Being fit will reduce your oxygen consumption, lets you pass slower climbers, and you can reach the summit early to catch the stunning morning views. Moreover, you will be better prepared to face unexpected bad weather.
We recommend you climb at least one mountain over 20,000 ft. It will enable you to learn how to use gear and equipment and face a hostile environment at high altitudes. You will also get an idea of the amount of endurance you require and the level of physical fitness this mammoth task demands.
Please note that the more peaks you ascend, the greater your chances of a successful Everest climb.
Please note that exercising at lower altitudes does not guarantee that you can perform the same level of exercising at higher altitudes, and cardiovascular fitness may not be adequate. We also suggest you practice carrying as much as 50-60 lbs of weight up to 4,000 ft. You must be comfortable hiking 1,500 ft vertically carrying a 20 lb pack.
In Nepal, you can ascend several peaks to prepare for the Everest expedition. Just contact us at 9810107636/9818283299 www.destinationholidaytrek.com for more details.
Most expeditions start in April, and most mountaineers attempt their ascend in May, just before Nepal experiences the monsoon. However, you might need to acclimatize in the Everest region for weeks before attempting the summit. It will take around two months for a successful attempt.
While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley
towards the great peak Makalu and mentally
worked out a route about how it could be
climbed. It showed me that even though i was
standing on top of the world, it wasn’t the end
of everything. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges.
