At 8850m, Everest is the highest mountain on earth straddling the border between Nepal and China (Tibet). Called Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the Universe) by Tibetans and Sagarmatha by Nepalese, today Everest is part of Sagarmatha (Chomolungma) National Park, which is home to Sherpa people and a impressive ecological biodiversity. The Everest region has long been enlisted as a world heritage site.

After decades of failed attempts to conquer it starting in 1920s, Everest was successfully climbed by New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Nepali Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. Ever since Everest, occasionally known as the 'Third Pole', attracts hundreds of climbers every season. 

From Nepal side, the popular routes followed by climbers to reach the top are South Col route, Southwest and Northeast ridge.  The first two routes will involve crossing South Summit and the famous Hillary Step. As compared to other eight thousanders, Everest is technically less challenging however it is not without its share of difficulties. The notorious 'death zone', located at 7620m, in particular is where mountaineers often have to struggle with oxygen deprivation due to thin air. Avalanches, sudden snowstorms, crevasses, extreme cold temperature, blizzards are some of the other risks of climbing Everest. Everest expedition is strictly regulated from both Nepali and Chinese side making it mandatory for climbers to get necessary permits. 

The popular South Col route first opened by Tenzing and Hillary advances through the Khumbu Icefall setting up four camps before the summit launch. The base camp is located in Khumbu Glacier at 5500m. A great team coordination is required in fixing ropes, ladders and rappel lines especially in the icefall section. As you move higher through Khumbu Glacier you will pass the western cwm where one has to cross deep crevasses and seracs. Beyond Camp III, you will have to straddle the Lhotse face before coming onto Geneva Spur. Camp IV will be installed at around 8016m just below the famous Hillary Step. Attempts for the summit are made in the early morning hours so as to be on the summit before mid day. 

Throughout the expedition, climbers will need to have strong ice and snow climbing skills as well as strong focus and determination.  Our strong team of Sherpa guides and climbers will assist you every step to the summit. Adventure Thirdpole Treks organizes all the logistics and preparation for Everest expedition including obtaining necessary climbing permits from concerned government agencies.
