Mt Everest

Mt. Everest Expedition South side Nepal 2024 & 2025

Nepal first came into world focus when Tenzing Norgay Sherpa of Nepal and Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand conquered Mt. Everest in 1953. Ever since, there have been countless expeditions heading off to the Himalayas. With eight of world's highest peaks within Nepal's boundaries, there is tremendous interest in the Nepal Himalaya.

Most of the peaks over 8000m high were conquered during the Golden Decade of Climbing in the 1950s. Climbing by then had become a national affair with various nations vying with each other to be the first to climb. Today it is all about breaking records. There are some 326 peaks in Nepal open for mountaineering today.

The main climbing starts from the Everest Base camp, which is situated on the lap of Khumbu glacier at altitude of 18000ft. During the climbing season, the base camp is almost fully occupied with colorful tents of different expedition groups. All Mt. Everest climbers assemble here during the starting and at the ending time of there climbing. Normally the climbing duration of this expedition lasts for 90 days. All the climbers who mass there at the base camp seem really busy with excitement for the preparation of their expedition to reach on the summit.

Some climbers climb this mountain on their own risk without any climbing Sherpa guide; and some climbers go with their own climbing Sherpa guide. Most of the teams carry their own Internet, Satellite phone, Medical doctor and rest of the modern requirement.
