Himex used to run expeditions from the North side of the mountain, however due to the unreliability of access through Tibet, the last few years have seen us run the trips from the South with huge success, not only because all of our Sherpa staff actually come from the Khumbu region, just a few day’s walk from basecamp.

The trip is organised over 70 days from the end of March until early June, using 4 high camps as well as our basecamp setup.

The traditional Everest basecamp is a crowded place and sits on active ice which moves and melts around the tents during the course of the expedition, so Himex will camp slightly further down the valley closer to Pumori where there is more sun and the ice does not move – this makes for a much more comfortable experience and place to call home.

Due to the unstable nature of the Kumbu Icefall, Himex intends to minimise the amount of time members and Sherpas spend here, so we will spend more time on Lobuche and the surrounding peaks during acclimatisation.

We will place an emergency tent and equipment at camp 1 at the top of the ice fall, however this camp has an inherent avalanche danger so members are encouraged not to stay here.

Our first trip into the Western Cwm will therefore be directly to camp 2 (6,400m) where we will spend two nights before continuing up to camp 3 (7,200m) on the Lhotse face. Here we spend one night acclimatising before heading down to camp 2 for another night, before returning down to basecamp.

The summit push is of course weather dependent, but will take place over 7 consecutive days from Basecamp, with a brief stop at camp 4 at around 7,950m on the way up.
