Overview of Everest Expedition Nepal

Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world which lies at an elevation of 8,848 meters. It is located in the Mahalangur Himal on the border between the Nepalese Khumbu region and the north of Tibet. On both sides, it is surrounded by a vast sanctuary – Sagarmatha National Park on Nepal Side and on the Tibetan side by the Qomolangma National Nature Reserve.

The mountain was named after the British land surveyor George Everest. In Nepal, the mountain is referred to as Sagarmatha “forehead of the sky”, in Tibetan as Qomolangma “mother of the universe”.

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 have been carried out to Mount Everest from both Nepal and Tibet Side.

Summit Everest Expedition Nepal with Thamserku Expedition

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 a famous mountain on earth. It has unique beauty and mystery. This is the ultimate quest the one that dreams of climbing the roof of the world.

After final preparations of the 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 organization 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.

ESSENTIAL INFO

Once services are price have been agreed and a booking has been secured then a deposit of 25% of the tour cost is required. The deposit can be made in any one of the four currencies (US$, £ Sterling, € Euros or NPR). The deposit sum required is to be made by cash or Credit/Debit card and any Credit/Debit card payment will carry a service surcharge of 3.5%. The balance (full payment) of the cost of the services to be provided is to be paid two month prior to the departure date of the first service to be provided. Once the full payment is been made, below cancellation charge applies:

  • From 45 to 30 days: 30% cancellation charge of the total cost.

In the event of cancellation by the client/s, only in exceptional circumstances might the deposit, or a part of the deposit, be refunded on a ‘good-will’ basis. Under no other circumstances will the original deposit be refunded.

In the event of postponement by a client/s once the deposit has been paid, the deposit paid can be reallocated to a subsequent date (fixed or unfixed) within a 12 month period from the date of postponement advice. In this case prices are subject to review.

Once the contracted program has begun no refund will be made or any consideration can be made only under extreme circumstances.

Tipping

Tipping is generally expected by all the expedition staff at the end for the excellent service they had provided to make your expedition successful. Normally the tips are given at the end of the expedition and this is best done as a group. We recommend that each group member contributes around $1000 - $1500 for the expedition crew at the last evening at the base camp and part of the collection to the climbing guide/ leader in the last day dinner in Kathmandu. You are welcome to give away some of the equipment’s or clothing that you are not going to take back home, you can donate to the local staff, for this your group leader will make arrangements for a fair distribution among the crew.

Visas on Arrival

For the arrival visa in Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, the immigration gets really busy during April, May, October and November; sometimes it takes hour to get the visa. Also, the wait is longer if you stand in the wrong queue. So below is the guideline for the visa on arrival and clearing the immigration at the airport.

1st Queue: Filling the application form. The clients can avoid this queue by filling the online application form (https://online.nepalimmigration.gov.np/tourist-visa) in their home country. A sample of the online application form with the necessary details has been filled (see attached). The clients should put the exact information as seen in the attached file; the hotel name could be different. 

Once you fill up the form and submit, they will receive another slip (see attached) which they need to print it out and bring along with them. 

2nd Queue: Cash Counter. If the clients have online slip beforehand, they can stand directly at the cash counter avoiding the 1st queue. It is advised for the clients to carry the exact visa fee amount (cash) either in US $ or Euro, but not in Nepalese Rupees. 

3rd Queue: Immigration. Once the payment is done, the clients need to stand at the Immigration line with the receipt from the cash counter and necessary documents.

Passport

Please ensure that you have a current passport well before travelling. It also needs an accurate photo and should be valid for at least six months after you are scheduled to return home. Also check that your airline tickets are in exactly the same name as your passport.

Copies of key documents

We recommend that you photocopy the main pages of your passport, your airline ticket, itinerary, insurance policy and credit cards. Keep one set of photocopies with you, separate from the originals. Leave one set of copies at home with family or friends. It is also worth taking some extra passport photos with you.

The Trekking Day

The day usually begins between 6.30 am and 7.30 am. After you have packed all your gear into your kitbag, breakfast will be ready. While you are eating, the crew members will make up the loads for the porters. You will often be on the trail by 7.30 am, though at higher altitudes the start is usually later, as we wait for the sun to warm the air a little.

Medical preparation/Travel Insurance and Safety Guidelines

  • Every Thamserku Trekking traveller is required to have comprehensive travel insurance. This covers you for medical costs associated with hospitalization, emergency travel and repatriation back to your home country. Remember to bring a copy of your insurance policy with you or send us the scanned copy.
  • Apart from having travel insurance and being in generally good health, some pre-holiday health preparation is advised. We strongly recommend you visit your doctor to discuss health requirements for your trip. They will advise you regarding the appropriate inoculations and in some places anti-malarial medication may also be required. Some vaccines need to be administered a few weeks before departure so allow plenty of time. Obtain a certificate of vaccination and carry this with you on this trip. A dental checkup is also highly recommended before departure.
  • Acclimatization to high altitudes (generally for trips over 3500 meters): We take this very seriously, which is why we have one of the best safety records in the Himalaya. We have over 30 years of experience in the region and our success rates on high altitude treks are very high. Our itineraries allow for a safe approach to high altitudes, following the guidelines set out by the Himalayan Rescue Association. We even carry Oxygen, mask and regulator for your safety and peace of mind on all treks proceeding above 4000 meters.
  • Our leaders are highly experienced mountain guides. Please follow their instructions very carefully as you ascend to high altitudes: walking slowly rather than hurrying, wearing sunglasses during the day, maintaining a high level of (non-alcoholic!) fluid consumption, not sleeping during the day, wearing adequate warm clothing are all factors of importance. Your leader will brief you fully on these considerations prior to the start of your trek.
  • In addition, if you are taking any medications with you which may have been suggested as an aid to acclimatization - Diamox is quite commonly suggested - it is vital that you advise your leader in Kathmandu before you leave for the start of the trek. He will then discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of taking this medication, and in particular when you should consider starting it and the duration for which it should be taken. Be aware that many trekkers have no need for such medication.

Money Matters

  • The official currency of Nepal is the Nepali rupee (NPR). Its symbol is often displayed as Rs.
  • Refer to https://www.nrb.org.np/fxmexchangerate.php for current exchange rates.
  • ATMs can only be found in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Bhaktapur. Money exchange facilities are available in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan (only outside the park) and Bhaktapur.
  • The Government of Nepal has banned the import, export and use of 500 and 1000 Indian rupee notes in Nepal. You should ensure you are not carrying these notes on arrival in Nepal as they will be confiscated and you may be fined.
  • Please note that most establishments in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn or faded and they can be very difficult to exchange or extra fees added when exchanging at banks. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes.

On arrival

If you have booked an arrival/departure transfer or is included in the program price. Please ensure that we have been advised of your correct flight details into Kathmandu by either yourself or your travel agent. Your Group Leader will be at Kathmandu airport to meet your flight and transfer you to your hotel.

    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.
