Climbing Everest is a common dream for all climbers from the world. But very few of them makes their dream true by climbing top of the world Mt. Everest. This is the absolute most famous expedition in the world. We present to you The Mount Everest Expedition – the ultimate test of mental and physical fitness. It is the definitive peak that separates the experienced climbers from the legendary ones. You must know by now, but Mount Everest (8848 meters / 29,029 feet) is the highest peak on the planet. In our hands, you are nearly guaranteed a safe and successful ascent.
The first people to climb this behemoth was Tenzing Norgay (Nepal) and Sir Edmund Hillary (New Zealand). Following their successful attempt, it has been the dream of mountaineers across the globe to summit the peak. Those who manage to climb it get to live with the recognition of climbing Everest, and if you do so, you will live the rest of your life with that sense of accomplishment. It is not just physical achievement, but one of the mental stamina as well.
Before even attempting the summit, climbers are surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. The area that encompasses the trek and climb is Sagarmatha National Park an UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the world’s highest national park. The park includes numerous snow-capped mountains, glaciers, valleys, lakes, trails, and is home to the Sherpa people. There are also numerous rare species in the area, such as the snow leopard and then Tibetan snowcock (and maybe even the elusive Yeti!).
After our short, scenic flight to Lukla, we begin our trek full of excitement. The following day, after passing through Sherpa villages and their fields, we reach Namche Bazaar – a trekking and trading hub of the region where we can experience Sherpa lifestyle and hospitality. We continue our climb, passing several Tibetan Buddhist monasteries – Tengboche Monastery being the largest and most well-known. From Tengboche, desolate yet mesmerizing alpine landscapes fill us with energy. The most incredible mountain views are right before our eyes.
The visit to Kala Patthar (5540m) presents us with a panoramic view of mountain peaks, as well as the Khumbu Glacial Valley. At Everest Base Camp (5359m), the views of Khumbu Icefall and various glaciers are spectacular.
From Base Camp, we make several more ascents to acclimatize before the final push to the summit. Camp I is around 6,200 meters / 20,340 feet. Camp II is around 6,600 meters / 21,655 feet. Camp III is about 7,200 meters / 23,620 feet. Camp IV (located at the South Col), from where we head to the summit, is at nearly 8,000 meters / 26,250 feet.
Experience a true mountain high like never before. At the summit of Everest, you might shed a tear as we pass hugs to who we have developed lifelong friendships with over the last weeks. We do not have too much time, so snap all the photos you can. Take some breaths and soak in the feeling. Soon, we begin our descent. We follow the same route back down to Lukla. When we arrive in Kathmandu, a celebration is in store. You may have just achieved one of the biggest goals of your life, and that certainly calls for a party. Make your night a memorable one!
