Expedition Everest has always become a dream for the alpine and adventure enthusiast. Stepping foot on the top of the world is the greatest moment in life. After Late Tenzing Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary stepped on the top of Mt Everest on 29 May 1953 many climbers from all around the world started to dream of conquering Everest. Before them, some of the legendary climbers had done their best trying conquering it but Hillary and Tenzing were the first who created the landmark history. Nowadays every year around 600 people reach the summit. Climbing Everest is not piece of cake thus it requires technical knowledge, climbing experience, and Physical fitness. This expedition lasted for a long duration roughly it takes around two months. Himalayan Smile Treks & Adventure had successfully organized many peak climbing and mountain expedition including Mount Everest expeditions.
Expedition Everest starts with a scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla 2810m which takes around half an hour. Then we start to walk towards Namche where we stay two nights there doing acclimatizing and exploring. Then we head to Everest base camp 5365m/17600ft via Tengboche, Dingboche, Thokla, and Lobuche. Everest base camp is located over an icy glacier surrounded by several crevasses on it. We set up the base camp with the necessary equipment and supplies required for the expedition. We do provide an individual tent for all the members of the expedition and we have a dining tent for eating. Our experienced chef prepares a hygienic dish. The Sherpa fixes the ropes and aluminum ladder to make a path through the icefall to go camping one.
During Expedition Everest, we do a lot of exercise going high towards camp I and coming back for acclimatization to adapt to the climate. After having sufficient preparation we head to Camp I 6200m/20336 crossing Khumbu ice fall where we have to traverse crossing wide crevasse formed with a huge chunk of ice. Then we head to camp II 6600m/21648ft climbing through a vertical icy slab. After we head to camp III at the bottom of the Lhotse wall which is 7200m/23616ft. After completing the required preparation expedition leads towards camp IV 8000m/26240ft which is situated on the ridge which splits Everest with neighboring Lhotse. Then we wait for the appropriate moment and we go for the summit through the knife-edge ridge route via Hillary’s steps. Well after conquering we come carefully back down to base camp.
