Trip Overview

May 29, 1953 is a historic date in the history of humanity. At 11:30 a.m. that day, Tenzing Norgay from Nepal and Edmund Hillary from Nez Zealand conquered Mt. Everest for the first time ever. Before that, many mountaineers tried to climb the world’s tallest peak but without success. However that day, Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary climbed the summit of Mt. Everest taking the South Col route to inspire climbers worldwide and set a new benchmark in Everest expeditions.

Mt. Everest lies in the Khumbu region which acts as Nepal-Tibet border. The north face of the tallest peak faces Nepal while the south face looks towards Tibet. Climbing Everest is possible from both Nepalese as well as Tibetan sides.  However, the climbing Mt. Everest from the southern face is more popular not least because China closed Tibetan borders during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (popularly known as Cultural Revolution) led by Mao Zedong.

Mt. Everest expeditions are not easy and definitely are not cheap. However, the gigantic mountain stands tall as the challenge of the highest order for mountaineers worldwide. People are fascinated about the idea of not only climbing Mt. Everest but also setting records on the process. There are numerous records that have been set while scaling it and not less than a thousand mountaineers attempt to climb Mt. Everest each year from Nepal.

There is imminent risk at conducting Everest expeditions. The extremely challenging altitudes and the resulting air pressure or lack of that,  unforgiving weather conditions that can change without warnings and the sheer challenge of the world’s tallest peak all contribute to increase the difficulty of Everest expeditions. These challenges always inspire us to work relentlessly to tailor the best and the safest Everest expedition for you. Our decades of experience has taught us to never stop learning and never stop getting better.

The risk is there and so is the achievement- not many can call to have conquered the world’s tallest peak. To be able to call yourself an Everesteer is no minor feat. We will help you achieve your ultimate climbing dream by manufacturing the most suitable Everest expedition for you. April, May, October and November are traditionally believed to be the best months to attempt to climb Everest.

Useful information before joining this trip

Clothing and Equipment

Correct Clothing & Equipments are essential for a safe and enjoyable trek. Experienced trekkers will often take only a selection of these items based on what has worked in the past. Please find the equipment list below for your personal use during your travel with us.

FOR CLIMBING
» CLIMBING EQUIPMENTS » : Ice Axe, Crampons, Harness, 2 x Tape slings, 2 x Screw gate Karabiners, Descender/ Abseil Device, Prussic Loops & Plastic Mountaineering Boots

FOOTWEAR
» RUNNING SHOES » : 1 pair for casual Comfortable support shoes wear on lighter walking days.
» LIGHT HIKING BOOTS » : 1 pair of sturdy hiking boots in which you should wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock comfortably, either wool or synthetic. Sole should be flexible but still provide enough support for your feet. Boots should be very water repellent.
» HIKING GAITERS (Optional) » : 1 pair keeps rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn.
» WOOL SOCKS » : 3 pair heavyweight wool socks to be worn over the liner socks. When layering socks, check fit over feet and inside boots. Remember to keep one fresh, dry pair of socks available at all times. Socks with padded shins are especially nice with boots.
» LINER SOCKS » : 3 pair of smooth thin wool, nylon or Capilene to be worn next to the skin. This reduces the incidence of blisters and hot-spots and makes the outer sock last longer before needing to be changed. They should fit well with your heavyweight socks.

CLOTHING
» LIGHTWEIGHT LONG UNDERWEAR » : 2 pair, tops & bottoms, Capilene, other synthetic or wool. No Cotton. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-T-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility.
» LIGHT TREKKING PANTS » : Lightweight nylon pants designed to be used while trekking. They are extremely air permeable, dry quickly and provide sun protection. Zip-off lower leg sections are convenient for switching to shorts.
» T-SHIRTS » : Lightweight crew style t-shirt that wicks away moisture. Shirt can be made of any synthetic material.
» BANDANA » : Bring bandanas for face masks and other tasks.
» SYNTHETIC/SOFT SHELL JACKET » : A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover.
» INSULATED DOWN-JACKET » : Medium to heavy weight with hood.
» HARD SHELL JACKET WITH HOOD » : We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, underarm zips, and no insulation. This outer layer protects against wind and rain.
» HARD SHALL PANTS » : Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.

HANDWEAR
» FLEECE/SOFT SHELL GLOVES » : 1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands warmer when wet than lighter polypropylene or Capilene.
» SHELL GLOVES WITH INSULATION » : 1 pair. Insulation does not need to be removable. A good quality ski glove is sufficient.

HEADWEAR
» HEADLAMP & SPARE BATTRIES » : A good quality climber’s headlamp. For use at night, bring extra batteries!
» SUN HAT » : The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well. A Buff is recommended to reduce the amount of dust inhaled while trekking and reduces the chance of infection.
» NECK GAITER OR BUFF » : Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.
» GLACIER GLASSES » : 100% UV, IR, high quality optical lenses designed for mountain use, must have side covers, leashes, and a nose guard is particularly helpful. No more than 8% light transmission. If you wear contact lenses we recommend packing a spare pair of glasses—it is a good idea to have these with “photo-gray” or equivalent light-sensitive material so they can double as emergency sunglasses. If you wear glasses we recommend prescription glacier glasses (gray or amber). Talk to your eye care professional to find out where prescription glacier glasses are available. Regular sunglasses are not dark enough and do not provide any side protection from the sun.

PERSONAL EQUIPMENT
» SLEEPING BAG » : High quality with hood to at least - 10 Degree, Down is lighter and less bulky, but more expensive than synthetics. (Company provide you sleeping bag for this trek)

» WATER BOTTLES » 2 Wide mouth bottles with minimum 1 Litre capacity per bottle. No water bag or bladder systems, they freeze or are hard to fill.
» PEE BOTTLE (Optional) » : but very useful.
» PEE FUNNEL FOR WOMEN (Optional) » : Lightweight urinary director. (For minimal undressing for discreet use)
» SUNSCREEN » : SPF 30 or better, 2 small tubes. Make sure that the sun screen is not older than 6 months. Sunscreen older than six months loses half of its SPF rating.
