Everest Expedition Overview

Everest Expedition Information:

Mount Everest, also known as Quomolongma in local Tibetan language and Sagarmatha in Nepali language, is the highest mountain in the world that stands 8,848 m in height. There are two routes to summit Everest, one from the northern Tibetan side and another from south -east sie from Nepal which is the standard route for climbing. Mount Everest attracts many climbers, including highly experienced mountaineers. There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the "standard route") and the other from the north in Tibet. While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, and wind, as well as hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall. As of 2019, over 300 people have died, many of whose bodies remain on the mountain.

History of Everest Expeditions :The first ever effort to summit Mount Everest were made by the British Mountaineers from the north side as Nepal did not allow any foreigners to enter the country at that time. The Brtish were able to reach upto 7,000 m on a 1921 Expeditions but never reached the top. The second attempt was done in 1922 and pushed the markings upto 8,320 m which was the record for any human to reach beyond the 8,000 m altitude. In June 8, 1924, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine tried to attempt the final push to the summit. This has been a great mystery in the history of Everest Expedition as they never returned to the base. This sparkled a great debate as to whether they were the first summiteers of the Everest before Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa. Long after the mystery of Mallory and Irvine, in 1953, 29th may , Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zewzealand and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa of Nepal made the first documented ascend of Everest successfully.  

Mount Everest Expedition:

The frist ever successful summit of the world's highest landmark, Mount Everest, was done in 29th of May, 1953 A.D. by none other than his honorable Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa. Before that,many had tried to conquer the mighty Everest but none were successful. Even the first foot was set after the third attempt. After the fisrt summit , many climbers have tried conquering the Mighty Everest. Some of them succeeded and some could not. Some of the climbers lost their lives while many lost their organs because of extreme weather conditons. Most of the climbers hire Sherpa Guides and Porters. Sherpa Guides are needed for leading the climbers upto summit safely. Porters are needed to carry your foods, climbing gears and equipments, extra supplemental oxygen, etc. Some of the climbers try to summit Everest on their own without any Sherpa Guides or Porters. Since the rope is already fixed at the start of climbing season and if the climber is capable of carrying his/her own equipments and gears. Only the professionally trained hardcore climbers who know the risk of solo-climbing try to climb Everest without a Sherpa guide or Porter. 

All the climbers stay at Everest base Camp before the start of Summit. There are 4 camps altogether for resting before Everest Summit.

Camp 1 : 6,400 m (20.000 ft) : On our first day ,we will head towards camp 1 from the Everest Base Camp.. Camp 1 is relatively easy compared to other camps. It is situated in a flat surface. On our way to camp 1 , we have to cross Khumbu Glacier and Khumbu Icefall , Crevasses, thick snow. It is not going to be easy crossing the Khumbu Icefall and Khumbu Glacier because of the hard and slippery ice blanket. After reaching camp1, we rest overnight. Foods and requirements are prepared by our Sherpas. The crackling of ice beneath our tent and the roaring sound of avalanches in other areas can be heard disinctly from the camp 1.

Camp 2: 6,750 m( 21000 ft ): The camp 2 is situated on the icy wall of Lhotse. After tiresome, continuous uphill climb of 5 hours, we will reach camp 2. Weather here is often good. The clouds roll to the camp 2 from the high mountains. Sometimes the climate is windy and violent and may destroy our tents.  

Camp 3 : 7100 m. (22300 ft.): It takes 5 hours approximately to reach Camp 3 from Camp 2. The trail is tracherous and filled with multiple crevasses and icy patch. We have to use ladders in those crevasses.There is also a chance of avalanche if the weather turns bad. The weather is mostly windy and you have to be prepared for emergency evacuation in case of avalanche. Camp 3 is our proper acclimatization point before reacing out to camp 4. So will be staying at camp 3 for two days to acclimatize and gain enough strength for the remaining part. Most of the poeple start using supplemental Oxygen form this camp.

Camp 4: 8,400 m (26000 ft.) : After proper acclimatization at camp 3, we will head towards camp 4. The trial is filled with dangerous icy walls and deep snow. Deep crevasses make this part of trail adventurous but dangerous as well. Camp 4 is the last camp before we summit to Everest. The summit is just 500 m far from the camp 4. Most of the people return from the camp 4 to Base camp because of the bad weather and their health conditions. 

After resting for a day ,we will head towards the summit. The way to summit might be crowded. The infamous Hillary step is a part of this trail. Many people have lost their lives in Hillary step. Most of the time, the weather is fine but it can change suddenly and becomes windy. The average windspeed is about 160 km//hr at the summit if the weather is windy. The normal and the best way to reach the summit is from the narrow ridge at the south-east section which was used by  Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey. After reaching the summit, you will spend not more than 5 minutes at the top as the temperature falls way below zero degree. Take some photos , enjoy the surruondings and start returning. The most difficult part while returning is the HIllary Step . The part is filled with black ice and crampons may not work well if you are not careful enough. If you are able to climb down easily and have enough stamins and energy left, you can descend down to camp 2 from the summit directly.

Proper acclimatization Schedule before the final push to summit.

Acclimatization process is a must if you want to complete everest expedition successfully and safely. We, Adventure Altitude Treks have sorted the best available options for acclimatization process. This may change depending on various factors like weather conditions, health conditions of climbers,etc.

Best time to summit Mount Everest 

Spring Season ( March to May) i arguably the best time to summit Everest. The weather is clear with no rain and clouds in the sky. The visibility is far and wide. When the weather is clear and dry on the day of summit, mountaineers called it the weather window. Many mountaineers and climbers wait for weeks and even months for the perfect weather window. Winter is considered the most difficult time to summit Everest. Many climbers from different parts of the world had attempted to climb the Everest in winter. But only few of them have succeded. And most of those who have successfully summitted Everest in winter have suffered from frost bite due to extreme weather and exremely low temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions 

1. How hard is climbing Mount Everest ?

Climbing any mountains, specially those above 6,000 m, needs serious climbing skills . Reaching to Everest Base camp is considered hard enough as the terrains are not supporting. However, if you trek to Everest Base Camp instead of taking a direct Helicopter to Gorekchep or Base camp,this will help you a lot in knowing the terrains of the Himalayas , gives more acclimatization time to body. Climbing Everest needs a prior expereince to climbing mountains which are over 6,000 m in altitude. Even if you have no expereince, we will take you to climb Island peak for your training and skills. The dangerous part of the everest expeditions is the bad weather. The weather can change instantly amd the winds blows with a speed of more than 100 MPH at camp 4. This is the reason why climbers wait for a perfect weather window to ascend the summit.. It will blow away the tents and even people if they are not careful enough. The hardest sections of the Everest expeditions are the infamous Khumbu Icefall and Hillary step. Many climber have lost their lives in these two sections. Unpredictable avalanches, high speed wind, lots of huge crevasses, hard and slippery sections, nothing favours the climbers.
