Mount Everest is universally known as the highest mountain the world is also known as Quomolungma (the Mother Goddess of Earth) in Tibetan and Sagarmatha in Nepali rises to 8,848 meter / 29,028 feet above the sea level is located on the Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal – Tibet, China border. To climb the Everest is the dream of virtually every mountaineer. We take the Everest Climb expedition very seriously to make it a grand success and we are again going to organize the Everest Expedition in 2014 during pre-monsoon season under the management of Asiana Nepal Treks & Expedition, a veteran Everest climber (9 times Everest climb) who has very long career in climbing history from 1974 continuing till to-date setting many mountaineering records. He has probably the longest climbing career in mountaineering history.

About the early climbing history of Everest Expedition, it was the British who began the primary exploration of Everest in the 1920s, and the real Everest expeditionary period on the South side began in 1950 with the opening of Nepal to foreign expeditions for outside world. After several attempts by many people, finally the first successful ascent of Everest was in 1953 by Edmund Hillary, New Zeland and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, Nepal has been considered one of the greatest achievements in Mountaineering. These climbers ascended through to the South Col from the Khumbu Glacier and continued their ascent to the summit via the South East Ridge. Their route is now referred to as the Normal South Col route and will be also be the route that Mountain Climb uses every year. This route also offers the greater chance of success. Having organized Everest expedition many times and climbed this mountain ourselves several times we take the Everest expedition seriously and we know the exact logistics involved to make the Everest expedition a grand success with professionally led strong team of Climbing Sherpas and modern expedition equipment's.

Regarding the elevation / height of Everest, the great Trigonometric survey of India began by the British in 1902 to determine the location and names of the world's highest mountains and the survery was further continued by Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India, who considered Kangchenjunga to be the highest mountain in the world, but the observation was further carried out by James Nicolson in 1949 using theodolite. Kangchenjunga (or Peak IX) was considered to be the world’s highest mountain until 1847, whereas Everest (or Peak XV) was still under further survey. And an Indian mathematician using trigonometric calculations based on James Nicolson’s previous measurements considered Everest as the world’s highest mountain

Everest was named after the Surveyor General of India Colonel Sir George Everest and the Royal Geographical Society officially adopted name as Mount Everest in 1865. Other official names for Everest are Sagarmatha in Nepal named by a Nepalese poet ChakrapaniChalise and Quomolungma in Tibetan, and Zhumulangmafor Chinese.

For the Everest Climb Expedition we set up 4 camps above Everest Base camp (5300m / 17,388ft) for the summit

Base Camp - Camp 2 (6,400 m / 20997ft.)

Camp 2 - Camp 3 (7,400 m / 24278ft.)

Camp 3 - Camp 4 or South Col (7,900m / 25918ft)

Camp 4 – Everest Summit (8,848m / 29,028ft)

We have noted some probable points related to Everest Climb South side expedition whether they might help you:

Length of Mount Everest Climbing expedition

Everest Expedition total duration is 64 days (Kathmandu to Kathmandu), this duration is planned for the overall expedition such including administrative formalities, approach to/from Base Camp, acclimatization at Base camp, and above Base camp for the summit attempt etc….The daily waling /climbing / ascent duration depends on each camp basis, such as during approach to Base camp an average walking duration is 5-6, whereas from Base camp to Camp III is about the same duration and from Camp III to South Col is about 7+ hours whereas from South Col to the summit is 9+ hours depending on each climber. The above average duration is just generalized, but the actual climbing duration depends on each climber.

Administrative Formality / Climbing permit

There are quite lot of government formalities for obtaining the Everest Climbing permit, and as a professional Everest Expedition organizer company we take every administrative formalities for Clibming Everest seriously so that the member / client could enjoy a hassle free Everest Climbing.

For Everest Expedition you need a visa valid for 90 days paying the applicable fee as mentioned above.

Difficulty of the Everest Climb

This is another major question frequently asked. And the answer to this is rather simple; the difficulty of any mountaineering depends on your previous climbing experience, physical fitness, mental preparedness etc… Everest Climbing is of course difficult not from technical part but due to its harsh weather conditions, high altitudes. There will be fixed ropes from the Khumbu Icefall to the summit for climb, so if you are bit careful about using your personal equipments such as you must not forget to cliff on your safety karabiners on fixed lines, step up your crampons carefully etc, the climb is not difficult, but for altitudinal adaptation, though the expedition is well planned in terms of proper acclimatization, at the same time it is important that you must have at least previous climbing / mountaineering experience, properly acclimatized for Everest climb and proper use of technical gears such as crampons, jumar, ice-axe etc., It is also advised that you do physical exercises by running, long walking, cardio vascular exercises and have general check up with your doctor before coming on the Everest expedition.

At an Emergency

ASIANA NEPAL TREKS & EXPEDITION prides itself on being prepared for any emergency situation. Our guides / Sirdars are trained in first aid and can deal with most of the basic ailments that are associated with the Everest expedition / mountaineering. When a serious emergency does occur, then outside help is needed and such rescues are expensive therefore every climber should have his or her own insurance arranged before coming to Nepal. It is advised that you buy the Insurance Policy right from the home Country through a reliable Insurance company covering medical, accidental and rescue evacuation. Please ensure with your insurance company whether they really cover the risk for such high altitude mountaineering expeditions such as for Everest Expedition (8848m / 29,028ft).

Food safety & the types of food

Food safety to keep our expedition members is always a priority for us; therefore we brief you about the food safety before departure on an expedition. All food we take for Base camp use are freshly bought from the market, properly checked the date validity or freshness before dispatch to Lukla and all our cooks and kitchen staffs are trained in cooking varieties of hygienically prepared foods and good taste.

During approach to / from Base camp you will have your breakfast and dinner at your teahouse. We stop for lunch at one of the various trailside restaurants. And snacks are always easy to find. During your stay at Base Camp our well trained and experienced cook will prepare fresh and tasty meals and snacks. We will have plenty of food including the traditional Nepali meal Dal Bhat (rice, curry, and lentils), noodles, rice, potatoes, vegetables and soup and Nepalese versions of western food such as pizza and French fries too. There will be also various types of snacks such as biscuits, chocolates, nuts etc also special cakes prepared by our cook with plenty of drinks such as tea, hot chocolates, coffee, juice etc… And for the Full board expedition service food for higher camps above base camp will be various types of light / energy foods such as chocolate bars, dry fruits, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar, whole meal packed food etc….

Drinking water during Everest expedition

During approach from Lukla to Everest Base camp and Back to Lukla all teahouses have boiled water that is quite safe to drink. Your guide will provide you with all the water you need during your trek to Base Camp, though you may also buy bottled water on the trail, but we do not encourage much on this as the plastic bottles are difficult to dispose off and have become an environmental problem. During your stay at Base camp the water source is either from a small stream or ice melting that our cooks boil and 100% safe to drink or cooking. Above Base camp in the mountains the water source is from snow melting which is safe for drinking as well.

Equipment you should bring

Choosing the right equipment is very important especially for Everest climbing. All group climbing equipments such as ropes, tents, snow bars, ice-screws, shovel, cooking pots are provided from Asiana Nepal Treks & Expedition for full board expedition service, whereas you (climbing members) need to have enough personal clothes to stay warm and good gears for climbing or cool yet not over packed. Usually you will have warm days and very cold nights. Detailed information about the personal gear are available on request or briefly explained about the gear list section of the page.

Extra money to bring

Without knowing your proper service selection of the expedition either Full Board expedition service, Base camp service or any other services, it is next to impossible to justify the correct amount you would need to bring, but there will be always only little money that you can bring for personal expenses such as souvenirs, drinks, personal equipment etc... Therefore, we advise you on this after your chosen expedition service.

Experience of our guides / staffs

ASIANA NEPAL TREKS & EXPEDITION has some of the most dependable and experienced guides / Climbing Sherpas. All of our guides / Climbing Sherpas have spent years climbing mountains and Everest Climbing experience with many times to the Summit, so you can be confident in our staffs.

Accommodations & toilet facility

We provide a single room accommodation for Everest expedition members in Kathmandu in 4 star hotels. During your approach to/from Lukla - Everest Base camp you need to share room with other people as there are no single room facility in lodges. At Base camp you will be provided a single tent with thick mattress and pillow to make your sleep comfortable and at Camp I and above to South Col, you need to share tent with another member which will be also warmer. There will be also a separate toilet and shower tent facility at Base Camp.

Environmental Responsibility

Our approach is to raise environmental awareness among Climbers making the Everest expedition an Eco-Everest expedition. We also give information to our valued clients on how to minimize maximum damage on the environment. We clean up and bring all our garbage back from Everest Base Camp and from the mountain as far as possible produced during our Everest expedition.

We always heartily welcome your comments and suggestions for a better way to serve our customers, environmentally and naturally friendly way.
