Everest expedition is the pinnacle of mountaineering adventure! Mt. Everest (8848.86m) is the world's highest mountain and remains the greatest challenge and a perpetual natural wonder for mountaineers and trekkers alike. It is located in the Mahalangur Himal, a sub-range of the Himalayas in the Eastern part of Nepal. Commonly known as Sagarmatha in Nepali, Chomolungma in Tibetan and Sherpa languages, Everest shares its border with Tibet/Chinaon northern side. However, the top of Everest is officially declared to be located on the Nepal side according to a treaty between Nepal and China. The longitude and latitude of Mt. Everest are 27°59′17″N and 86°55′31″E, respectively.
 



History of Mt. Everest

Before 1865, Everest was popularly known as Peak XV among Westerners. The Royal Geographical Society under the British India government conducted the Great Trigonometric Survey in 1856 to determine the actual height of Peak XV using the available scientific technologies of that period. The trigonometric survey of 1865 was led by Sir George Everest, so Peak XV was later renamed Mt. Everest to honor his significant efforts, despite his objections. The current official altitude of 8848m (29029ft), recognized by both the Nepalese and Chinese governments, is based on the Indian Survey of 1955 and its subsequent Chinese survey conducted in 1975.
 


 

Everest first summit:

When discussing mountaineering, there's no doubt that Mt. Everest is the first thing that comes to everyone's mind. Everest has been on the bucket list of many of us since our childhood. Climbing Mt. Everest and reaching its summit is the dream of every serious climber, and they are willing to sacrifice a lot of time and money to achieve this dream. Several attempts were made to conquer Mt. Everest by different expedition teams before it was successfully climbed in 1953. The first successful attempt on Mt. Everest was made by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on May 29, 1953, via the South route on the Nepal side. Since then, many people have put in their efforts to achieve the same goal. However, not all of them have been able to summit due to their own weaknesses and unfavorable weather conditions. This expedition is suitable for those with extensive mountaineering knowledge and climbing experience above 7000m.
 



How challenging is Everest expedition?

Climbing Everest is not an easy task, so preparation is essential before climbers head to Everest. Climbers are expected to have great stamina and undergo special training to acclimatize to harsh conditions such as low oxygen levels and freezing temperatures. It's important to remember that the most difficult challenges arise in the "death zone" above 8000 meters sea level. The body has to cope with a lack of oxygen, which can lead to deadly experiences like strokes, heart attacks, or severe acute altitude sickness in a place where immediate rescue is impossible. Nevertheless, every year, many people climb Mt. Everest to prove to themselves that they can do it. Reaching the summit of Mt. Everest is an extraordinary achievement that few can accomplish in their lifetime. To achieve this goal, one must ensure a well-prepared itinerary and sufficient acclimatization to adjust the body to the altitude. Acclimatization helps the body produce more hemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to various parts of the body, preventing it from succumbing to the conditions. Another crucial factor for a successful expedition is your climbing guide and the other Base Camp crew members, ensuring safety and maintaining good health throughout the entire expedition. Our Everest expedition team is trustworthy and reliable, ensuring all these conditions are met for organizing an Mt. Everest expedition at your own pace.
 



Information about different Camps of Mt. Everest:

Our Everest expedition package is a 62-day program that can be divided into three parts. The first part consists of the journey to Everest Base Camp, the second part is the main expedition, including the summit of Everest, and the third part involves your return from Base Camp to Kathmandu. The climbing part is divided into four sections, including Camp I at 6,065m, where we will encounter the Khumbu glacier. From the Khumbu Glacier, it's about 450m northeast on a gradual slope to Camp II at 6,500m, and around 610m to Camp III at 7,200m. Camp III is located at the head of Lhotse. Beyond this point, you will need an oxygen cylinder. Camp IV is situated at 7,910m, just after crossing the 8000m elevation mark. This point has already been described above as the Death Zone.
 



Embark on the Adventure of a Lifetime:

Whether you're an experienced mountaineer or taking your first steps into high-altitude climbing, our Everest Expedition program is designed to challenge and inspire you. Summiting Everest is more than a physical feat – it's a mental and emotional triumph that will stay with you forever.
 



Which side and company are best for Mt. Everest expedition?

The Everest expedition from the Nepal side (Southern route) remains the most preferred route for Everest climbing due to its higher success rate compared to the Northern route. If you are a mountaineering enthusiast preparing for an epic journey and serious about climbing Mt. Everest, then your best choice should be a reliable, trustworthy and experienced company. We are delighted to inform you that Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition is fully authorized and capable of organizing all types of expeditions in the Himalayas. We are a Nepal-based mountaineering company with more than 3 decades of experience exclusively in mountaineering and trekking. Many renowned mountaineering personalities have used our services and turned their dreams into reality. We have an expert climbing team for Everest and other 8000-meter mountain expeditions.
