Everest summit

Mount Everest is the dream for every expedition climber. Summiting the highest peak of the world is an overwhelming experience. Mount Everest is in the heart of Sherpa country. We Sherpa call the mountain Chomolunga, “Goddess mother of mountains”. The most popular and most successful route the summit is from the south side in Nepal. For Mount Everest you need former high altitude climbing experience.

After your arrival we will have a gear check with you, and make all the necessary preparations for the permits. The expedition begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Luka Airport you will hike in a few days to Namche Bazaar. The Sherpa capital of Sagarmatha / Everest region. After Namche you hike to the Buddhist monastery of Thyangboche. Here can ask for a puja ( blessing) for a good and safe climb of Mount Everest. After the pooja you will trek further on to Everest Base Camp. Compared to other expeditions Everest Base Camp is the most luxurious base camp. Fresh produce is flown in by helicopter every day to make sure all expeditions have optimal high altitude food & drinks available. From Everest Base Camp you will start with acclimatization climbs and acclimatization periods at several camps. It starts with a crossing of the notorious Khumbu icefall and the Lhotse face. From Camp 1 you will eventually climb to Camp 4. Towards the final push to the summit you will climb over the famous Hillary Step, a balcony at the south side of the summit. At the summit you are literally at the roof of the world. After summiting you will descend back towards Eveerest Base Camp within a few days. From Base Camp we will make preparations for your return to Lukla. You will track back to Lukla via Namche Bazaar.
A flight back to Kathmandu ends this expedition adventure.
