Everest Expedition (South Face)

Overview

Embarking on the ultimate adventure with us in the heart of the Himalayas. From the moment you land in Kathmandu, we’ve got you covered. Your journey includes everything – hotel stay, flight to Lukla, trek via Namche, and tea house full board service during the trek. Trust us to handle all the details, allowing you to focus solely on your climb.

Our climbing guides are not just guides; they’re highly qualified, regularly reviewed, and re-trained professionals. Recognized for their expertise, they navigate the challenging terrain with precision. Safety is paramount on our Everest expedition – a serious climb with serious consequences for mistakes. Our rigorous safety standards minimize risks, ensuring both clients and guides stay secure throughout the ascent.

Ethics matter. All our guides and staff are employed under ethical standards. As you ascend the forehead of the sky, Sagarmatha, known globally as Mt. Everest, reaching a staggering 8848m, remember you’re in the hands of the most experienced team. The South face belongs to Nepal, the North face to China’s Tibet – a geopolitical distinction for the world’s highest peak.

The history of Everest unfolds with British Surveyor Sir George Everest in 1856, measuring it during the Great Trigonometric Survey. Controversial even then, the peak was named in his honor. Closed to foreigners, Tibet and Nepal kept local names hidden. Climbing attempts began in the 1920s, met with disasters until success in 1953 from the South side – the very route of your expedition.

Retrace those historic steps, carve your mark in Everest’s legacy. With us as your support crew, reaching the top of the world is not just a dream; it’s your reality. Join this unparalleled journey and make history atop the highest peak on Earth.

Different Camps during your Everest Expedition trip

There are 4 camps during your everest expedition. Each camps are calculated accordingly with the altitude and location so that your trip to everest expedition would be enhanced. The camps listed below are described as follows:

Camp 1: 20,000ft (6,060m)

Camp 1 unfolds in a flat expanse amidst endless snow, deep crevasses, and towering mountain walls. The Sun’s reflection bathes the area in warmth, creating a comforting ambiance. As night falls, the deep murmurs and cracks of crevasses beneath our tents echo, setting the stage for the journey to Camp 2.

Camp 2: 21,300ft (6,400m)

Nestled at 21,000ft, Camp 2 lies at the base of the icy Lhotse wall. While the weather here can be favorable, unpredictable clouds from the Himalayan valleys can pose a challenge. Winds, at times violent, threaten our tents. Climbing onward, we conquer these challenges to reach the gateway to Camp 3.

Camp 3: 22,900ft (7,300m)

Camp 3, perched at 22,300ft beside the imposing Lhotse wall, marks a pivotal point. Ascending the 4,000ft Lhotse wall, aided by fixed ropes and acclimatization, guides us to Camp 4. Along the way, we navigate steep allow bands and snowy fields, leading to the flats of the South Col. Oxygen becomes essential above Base Camp 3 for the climbers’ safety.

Camp 4: 26,000ft (7,925m)

Camp 4, our last bastion at 26,000ft, stands as the gateway to the final and perilous leg of the expedition. With the summit a mere 500m away, this is where the journey tests its limits. Camp 4 faces relentless and fierce winds, as climbers prepare for the challenging ascent via the narrow South-East Ridge. The path unfolds past the South Summits at 28,710ft, culminating in the historic route that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa pioneered in 1953. The summit of Everest at 29,028ft awaits, marking the triumphant end of an extraordinary ascent.
