Overview of Everest Expedition Nepal

Mount Everest was first climbed by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa on 29 May 1953 from the South Col. Since then many expeditions has been carried out to Mount Everest from both Nepal and Tibet Side. Adding up to the records, the first ascent of Mount Everest (from Nepal Side) without oxygen was succeeded on 08.05.1978 by Peter Habeler and Reinhold Messner. 

Mount Everest (8,848m), the greatest challenge, is more than the famous mountain on earth. It has unique beauty and mystery. This is the ulitmate quest the one that dream of climbing the roof of the world. After final preparations of Everest Expedition in Kathmandu, we will fly to Lukla and begin our Tea-house Lodge trek towards Everest base camp. We will establish our base camp at 5300m at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall (Base Camp) before making our way to Camp 01 at 6200m., Camp 02 at 6,600m smacks in the middle of the Western Camp up to the Lhotse face to Camp 03 at 7200m. Finally, we'll head up the South Col to Camp 04 at 8000m before making our Everest summit push. 

We admit that no amount of finely tuned organisation will guarantee you the summit of Mount Everest. However we do believe that our experience, combined with your enthusiasm, determination and good team spirit will provide you with the best possible chance of standing on top of the world. We also strive to conduct a safe, successful and enjoyable experience, and will do everything possible to achieve each of these goals.

    One, if not the greatest experience of my life! I’ve worked for years to reach this summit on everest and thanks to this team, I made the trip and survived. It was harder than I ever expected but I was prepared for it and without Dawa and his incredible experiences, I would of found Everest an incredibly difficult challenge. Thanks to all those involved in our expedition.
