Mt. Everest (8848m) is the world’s highest mountain and remains the greatest challenge and a perennial wonder for mountaineers and trekkers alike. The mountain straddles along the border between Nepal and Tibet, China as is much part of the Nepal Himalaya.

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa were the first to successfully climb Mt. Everest in 1953 in an expedition led by John Hunt. The South Col route on the Nepalese side of Mt. Everest was the route taken by late Hillary and Sherpa, which is still the most opted route for many climbers today.

To join the Everest Expedition team in Nepal, one must have extensive mountaineering experience of climbing peaks above 6,000 meters or alpine mountaineering experience. Previous experience of climbing one of the 8,000-meter peaks in the Himalayas is highly preferred. Although fixed ropes will be used, Everest expedition’s members must be able to ascend and descend fixed lines independently and be proficient with crampons on steep ice/snow slopes.

It will take at least of 60 days to mount an expedition on Mt. Everest.

Kusum Kangaru, Thamserku, Konde-Ri and Tawache peak. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 05: Rest at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization and excursion around the places.

It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization to the high altitude before heading off towards Tyangboche. For the acclimatization you walk up to Khunde Hospital which was set up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or a one hour walk up to the Syangboche (3800m.) where Everest View Hotel is situated above Namche for the outstanding view of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru. There are also good views from the National Park Center and Museum just above the town. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 06: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tyangboche (3867 m.) takes almost five hours.

From Namche, the trail contours around the side of the valley, high above the Dudh Koshi. From here you can catch a glimpse of good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including Mt Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, the trail descends steeply to a bridge over the river Dudh Koshi at Phunki Tenga (3250m.).The village has an excellent place for lunch and you can take a short rest before making the steep climb to Tyangboche. Tyangboche is famous for its legendary monastery, the largest in the Khumbu region. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 07: Trek from Tyangboche to Dingboche (4260m.) takes about five hours.

You gradually descend through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily up to the village of Pangboche. This is directly opposite to Ama Dablam [6,856 m], and has exceptional views of the mountain, with the Gompa, mani walls and scattered pine trees in the foreground. As you gradually ascend, you find thick forests. This part of the trail is full of thorny and juniper bushes. A further two and a half hour’s walk brings you to Dingboche. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 08: Rest at Dingboche for acclimatization and excursion in and around the places.

Here, you can steeply climb up to Nakartsang Gompa for the rare outstanding view of Mount Makalu (8463m.) along with Lhotse, Island Peak, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. The another option provided is a small side trip to Chhukung which takes about two and a half hours to go up and one and a half hours to come back to Dingboche. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 09: Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche (4930 m.) takes about six hours.

The onward journey leads north for up to 50-minutes until you come to a Mani-prayer Stupa. The trail is gentle looking down to Pheriche village below. Today's walk offers views of the Mt.Tawache, Ama Dablam and to the North-Pokalde (5741m), Kongma-tse (5820m) and the great wall of Nuptse. After a two hour walk, the trail from Pheriche joins near Dugla (4595m) before a small wooden bridge over the river of Khumbu glacier. You stop at Dugla, for lunch, before continuing for an hour up a steep hill to the top, where there are views of Mt. Pumori and other peaks west of Everest. After a short break, continue trekking up to Lobuche, hidden and sheltered from the wind. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 10: Trek from Lobuche to Kala Patthar via Gorak Shep.

Trek up the valley following the rocky moraine path, view icy glacial ponds and icebergs down below the Khumbu glacier. After the last rocky moraine dunes, a short downhill walk brings you to Gorak Shep, the flat field below Kala Patthar (5545m) and Mt. Pumori (7145m.) Gorak Shep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp with the new camp being further up the valley. The walk is gradual until you reach a rocky spot; from there another uphill climb for half an hour brings you to Kala Patthar. From the top of Kala Patthar, Everest seems just at a stones throw distance. The panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish and you feel ecstatic being at the top of the world. With all the higher snow capped giants that dominate all around, it is truly a magnificent spot to be on a clear sunny day. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 11: Trek from Kala Patthar to Everst Base Camp and back to Gorak Shep.

While trekking to Everest Base Camp you pass through a trail, which weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier. During the spring season, you can meet some expedition teams at the Everest Base Camp. The number of teams is less during the autumn season. On the return leg, you can take a higher route to get a spectacular view of the Khumbu ice-fall and numerous mountains. You return to Gorak Shep to stay overnight.
