Mt. Everest Expedition, the dream to touch the top of the entire planet is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure for many travelers. Standing at the pinnacle of the world is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. Since 1953, when Tenzing Sherpa and Edmund Hillary kept their steps on top of it, many climbers have attempted to achieve the same goal. Climbing Mount Everest and reaching its summit is a dream of every serious climber, and they can sacrifice a lot of time and money to succeed. None, however, can do that alone and needs the help of many other people they may rely on. Those people are organizers and experienced guides who take responsibility for Mt Everest expedition preparations as well as climbers’ safety.

If you are a mountaineering addict overwhelmed by thought only, and you have been preparing for a long time to climb Everest, your dream will be fulfilled through Outward Adventure Treks and Expedition. We are a trekking and expedition company led by Sherpa which has members having several years of experience in the mountains. It is a licensed company that has led hundreds of expeditions on Mount Everest and many more on other eight-thousanders, let alone personalized quests and treks which can be counted in thousands.

We, Outward Adventure Treks and Expedition use the classic expedition methods to gain the summit through the southeast ridge. We begin the acclimatization processes with the trek to base camp. On the way to base camp, we climb Lobuche Peak (20,075 feet/6,119 m ) as well which will help you as an acclimatization summit climb. In the base camp, there will be luxurious accommodations and food amenities. Two to three people will sleep in each tent at higher camps.

A pyra­mid of camps will be established by the guides and Sher­pas who will fix ropes, stock camps, and pro­vide lead­er­ship and sup­port for the climb. This will enable you to car­ry lighter loads, thus sav­ing your strength for the sum­mit bid. Oxy­gen will be pro­vid­ed for all team members and is tra­di­tion­al­ly used above Camp III. With tremen­dous lead­er­ship, our strong team of high alti­tude Sher­pas, and the finest equip­ment and ser­vices, you will have an out­stand­ing shot at reach­ing the top of the high­est moun­tain on the earth.

Our sixty-day adventure begins and ends at Kathmandu. In the initial part, we trek to Everest Base Camp using the most popular route in the Everest region. On the way there, we climb Lobuche Peak. This will help us with acclimatization practices. Upon reaching Everest base camp, we acclimatize, hike for Kala Patthar, have some training and ice walking practices, and organize a puja ceremony before actual climbing.

We climb to Camp I, Camp II, and Camp III, and repeatedly climb back to base camp before the actual summit push. It may take multiple days for us. And at last, we set our journey from camp to the summit, looking for better weather conditions. After the summit push, we climb back to base camp, trek back to Lukla, and fly back to Kathmandu before our final departure.

Why climb Everest with us?

We, Outward Adventure Treks and Expedition are a government-registered company that owns a license from the Government of Nepal and is registered with every tourism-related organization such as the Nepal Tourism Board, TAAN, Nepal Mountaineering Association, etc. We are registered to focus only on tourism-concerned activities such as tours, trekkings, and mountaineering-related activities.

Our team consists of only energetic, experienced, and hospitable persons who have numerous years of experience in tourism. Our trekking and mountain leaders are veterans in their fields. Our Everest Expedition leaders are all 8000m mountain climbers. They have climbed Mt. Everest up to 21 times. Our main mountain guide Mr. Kipa has climbed Mt. Everest five times, Lhotse 1 time, Ama Dablam 7 times, and the peaks above 6000m hundreds of times.

The people who take you to the mountain have been successfully organizing high-altitude Expeditions ensuring safety first and service paramount. The success of any expedition depends largely on a carefully planned itinerary and the best logistics and experienced crew members; these are what we offer. We are committed to maintaining the expedition safe and successful with the quality of service.

We always focus on maintaining small groups so that it will be easier to coordinate and cooperate while trekking/climbing. You will be guided by highly professional mountain guides who are some of the best in this field and have experience successfully climbing Everest multiple times. Our guides, Sherpas, and support staff bring decades of successful summits to the table, and our climbing strategy reflects this. For every trip, we provide fully guided expeditions with the support of the legendary Sherpas. Our 1-to-1 Sherpa-to-client ratio and 1 4 leader-to-client ratio on summit days show our commitment to providing safe climbing strategies.

We do not take any charges or hidden fees. The facilities mentioned in the Include section are provided well. What you pay in the beginning is the final payment. We are dedicated to providing the highest professionalism throughout the expedition by taking utmost care of all the logistics needed for our Everest Expedition. Compared to the facilities we provide; you will find our Everest Expedition cost to be very reasonable.

When is the best time to climb Mount Everest?

The records obtained from the Ministry of Tourism exhibit that there is always time to do it. however, the most friendly period for such a climbing experience is from April to June when the so-called “climbing window” opens. This is the perfect time to ascend to the summit. During this period, nature awakens and the trail to base camp can be very interesting Taking the biodiversity of plants into consideration above the base camp, there is less snowfall and bad weather conditions that make it possible to push the summit.

During May, maximum summit records are obtained. Being well prepared during the March and April months, climbers take their summit climb during May. That is the reason why every Everest expedition organized by us starts in March/April and finishes in May or at the beginning of June.

How long does it take to climb Everest?

Summiting to the roof of the world is not calm trekking. It does not mean strolling along the astonishing snow-capped slopped and for inexperienced or with a minimum risk of an illness people might be even dangerous. Acclimatization in the base camp may be quite long and it can last up to 30-40 days. During the climb, climbers are taken care of by Sherps till their organisms do not get used to the tension and lack of oxygen. After ensuring everything is okay, climbers are encouraged to go further up.

During the acclimatizing practices, climbing to different camps (Camp I, Camp II, and Camp III) is challenging for the first time, especially for novice climbers. In the latter days, after acclimatizing correctly, and collecting strong stamina, you will reach the top of the mountain with fewer challenges. On average, as far as tourists are concerned, the whole expedition lasts about 60 days from the arrival in Kathmandu to the final departure after the tour.

What happens after Everest Base Camp during the Everest Expedition?

During our expedition to Everest, we set up four camps after the Bbse Camp before the summit push which are for our acclimatization climbs. During the practices, we climbed different camps and descended to base camp for several days. A brief introduction to those camps is given below:

A. Camp I: 6400m /20996ft

Camp I is established on the top of Khumbu Glacier (Icefall) which is a flat level. It consists of heavy snow surrounded by mountains. The weather remains warm during the day and the nights are chilly during the strong gust of winds flowing on the mountains. The glacial land between Camp I  and Camp II is horizontal. There are large crevasses close to Camp I which are fixed with ladders. We can hear the cracking sound of the ice from underneath the tents. Cam I is considered a resting and transition area before heading to Camp II.

B. Camp II: 6750m/22145ft

Camp II is established at the bottom of the Lhotse wall or the lateral moraine at the foot of the west edge.  It is safe to land and is a sheltered location having the spectacular sceneries of Mt. Lhotse. The Camp will be established with separate tents (individual), the kitchen, and dining tents. It is the major acclimatization camp and base for the acclimatization climb to Camp III.

C. Camp III : 7100m /23292ft

Camp III of the Everest Expedition is attached to the Lhotse divider. It can be achieved with the help of a fixed rope. Camp III is a 30-degree snow slope with rocky exposed ledges on which our tents are balanced. This point serves only as a short acclimatizing and resting spot. You can not dawdle at this height and doing anything as simple as crawling into your tent and taking off your crampons can be overwhelmingly exhausting. The views of the five highest peaks look astonishing.

The oxygen level drops rapidly at this elevation. In case of any inconvenience, there is supplementary oxygen. However, most climbers won’t require supplementary oxygen till Camp IV.

D. Camp  IV: 8400m 27560ft

An Ultimate Camp before the summit is Camp IV. Situated on the South Col, Camp IV is also the most dangerous section of the entire climb. It is just four hundred meters from the summit. The winds are strong and violent here. The narrow southeast ridge is the best route to reach the summit. From this path, it is easy to reach the summit of Everest 8848.48m (29032 ft).In 1953, two mountain legendary Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay also used this route to climb Everest.

A Summit Push begins from this very point. It is mostly sheer with snow and rock sections. The entire route gets fixed with ropes for the safety of climbers. Supplemental oxygen is available as almost every climber gets affected by height and lessened findings due to lack of oxygen.

Summit Push:

After establishing Camp III and IV and all our supplies are in place, we return to Base Camp or even lower villages. At Base Camp, we form summit push teams and prepare ourselves for summit attempts. Once, everything is okay, we will move upward to the Advanced Camps. If the weather permits, the summit team moves to Camp I, Camp II, and Camp III continuously.

On the second, the crew members move up to the Camp IV. Day number three will be the actual summit day. Starting at around 9 p.m., the team will begin the actual SUMMIT PUSH journey and the team will reach the top of the Everest at around 5 a.m. Taking the pictures around, and putting your flags there, you will climb back to the South Col and the next day descend to Camp II. Your Sherpa leaders and other members will help you in organizing oxygen and other supplies throughout the journey.

Welcome to Kathmandu! You are landing in Kathmandu for your adventurous journey on the Everest expedition. Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, one of our representatives will await you outside the terminal gate with the nameplate “Outward Adventure Treks and Expedition” and your name on it. He/she will greet you with a garland and you will be transferred to your hotel through the windy streets of Kathmandu.

As there is no other scheduled itinerary today, the rest of the time can be spent on your way; either resting in your room or going around the hotel or Thamel. 

Day 02-03 – In Kathmandu for official formalities and last-minute preparation [1,350m/4,430ft]

During these two days, we go sightseeing in the World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu valley, meet our expedition leaders, collect the permits and other official formalities as already prepared by Outward  Adventure, and do the final preparation of the trekking/mountaineering. If any gear is needed to purchase/hire, we can manage them here as in the Himalayas, they may not be available, if available they are very costly.

Day 04 – Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding [2,600m/8,531ft]

After an early meal, we head towards the airport for a morning flight to Lukla. A private vehicle will transfer us there. A short (35-minute) flight takes us to Lukla. Upon landing at the airport at Lukla, we hand over our duffle bags to our porter crews and begin our journey toward Phakding. It is a short trek that will be finished within 3-4 hours.

Our mountain guide will lead our way passing through National Luminary Pasang Lhamu Memorial Gate, from where the route to the epic journey to Everest Expedition starts. At the entrance of the police checkpoint, the police will register our presence on the route. After walking for about an hour, we reach Thado Koshi, our lunch stop. Or if you like to walk a couple of hours more, we can take our lunch directly at our lodge at Phakding.

Walking alongside the Dudh Koshi River, crossing the suspension bridge, and having a rest in the stops, we finally arrive at Phakding. After a brief rest at our lodge here, we can have a friendly chat at the dining hall or go for a walk to explore nearby monasteries and villages.

Day 05 – Trek to Namche Bazar [3,450m/11,319ft]

The second day of our trekking begins today after taking a good morning meal at the warm dining hall. We pack our duffle bags and submit them to the porter team and begin our walk. Following the instructions and briefing from the trek leader, we follow him through rocky forest trails, enjoying the overall atmosphere, the children’s smiles, passing donkeys, rhododendron trees, and layers of hills. We pass through the Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate, the stone steps, and large mani stones, it will be mostly a downhill walk until we stop at our lunch stop of the day at Jorsalle.

Having a plentiful lunch, we again set our journey towards Namche Bazaar. We pass two suspension bridges after Jorsale, the second one is the longest in the Everest region known as the Hillary bridge. After a tough climb up the hill named Top Danda (Danda means Hill) which is a resting place with a view of Everest, we will be rewarded with first a glimpse of Everest in its majesty. We further climb to Namche Bazaar where we spend the night today.

Day 06 – Rest and Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar-Hike to Everest View Hotel [3,450m/11,319ft]

This day is scheduled as an acclimatization day. Acclimatization days are meant to stay active, hike to higher altitudes and sleep back in lower. After breakfast, we walk up to Syangboche and Everest View Hotel area from where we get astonishing views of Everest and neighboring mountains like Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, and many others.

We may even take more hikes to the neighboring villages such as Khunde and Khumjung to visit the historic Hillary School and Hillary Hospital. Being back to Namche, we explore the Namche villages. We also visit the Sherpa Museum near the Sagarmatha National Park headquarters which exhibits a collection of things related to the flora and fauna of the region, Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture, etc.

Day 07 – Trek to Tengboche [3860 m/12660 ft]

We set our trip towards Tengboche leaving the beautiful Namche after breakfast. The initial part of the trek is along the same route as the day before to Syangboche and instead of walking uphill to Syangboche airport, we take the right fork to catch the main Everest Base Camp route. We hike down to the gushing Dudh Koshi river, cross the suspension bridge and continue the walk passing pleasant alpine backwoods.

We now trek up and up over the rock and dusty trail till we reach our destination Tengboche. Throughout the journey, we will have astonishing views of the snow-capped mountains at distance. Upon reaching Tengboche, we get to rest for a while and then go to explore Tengboche Monastery in the backdrop vista of soaring Himalayan peaks. Tengboche is one of the most beautiful places in the entire Everest Base Camp route.

Day 08 – Trek to Dingboche [4,412m/14,475ft]

With the beautiful sunrise over the dazzling peaks, we wake up and begin preparing for a day’s walk. Today we will reach the village of Dingboche. We begin our trek with excitement as we see Yak pasture lands, mostly downhill through refreshing trees to Deboche, and finally, cross Imja Khola on a wooden bridge. Afterward, we walk steep uphill till we reach the village of Pangboche.

From Pangboche we will see the mighty views of the Himalayas and surrounding landscapes. We will sit in one of the teahouses and have our lunch before beginning our further journey to Dingboche. After crossing several hills, we jump with joy as we see our tea house from a distance. There are many chortens, horse stables, and lodges with few shops offering their services here at Dingboche. We spend overnight in one of the teahouses here. It is the first night at Dingboche.

Day 09 – Acclimatization day at Dingboche – Hike to Nagarjun Hill [5,100 m/16,728 ft]

As we are going to higher elevations, we need to be acclimatized appropriately to the nearby environment i.e thin air. Thus this day is also scheduled as an acclimatization day. We will hike to a ridge called Nangkartshang Peak/ Nagarjun Hill which sits behind the Dingboche village.

During our upward hike, we will have picturesque views of the peaks like Lobuche East peak (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m), and Ama Dablam (6856m).

Optionally, we can hike to Chhukung Ri as well. Although it is a longer hike, we will get views of the 8000m peaks Mount Lhotse, Mount Makalu, and Mount Cho Yu clearly.

Day 10 – Trek to Lobuche High Camp [5,400m/17,720ft]

Leaving the main trail of Everest Base Camp, we head towards Lobuche High Camp today. We will summit Lobuche East the next day, it will be a practice climbing for high altitude expedition.

Upon reaching high camp, we will learn how to use expedition gears properly. Our guide will give a briefing and demonstration of climbing. We will spend our first night at a tented camp here.

Day 11 – Summit Lobuche East [6119m/20,070ft] and back to Lobuche [4,910 m/16,105 ft]

Waking up early in the morning (around 2 am), we will begin our climbing. Following every step of our mountain experts, we move upward towards the summit of Lobuche East [6119m/20,070ft].

Around 8-9, we will be at the top of the peak. Admiring the views, and capturing the surrounding peaks and views, we climb back to the high camp, and base camp, and trek to Lobuche village. After climbing and trekking, we become much tired. Thus, we check in one of the teahouses and get rest.

Day 12 – Contingency Day

This day is scheduled as a contingency day. In case, we could not summit the peak the previous day due to the weather conditions and other reasons, we climb the peak today. Otherwise, if it was climbed yesterday, we just get rest and explore the Lobuche village today.

Day 13 – Trek to Gorekshep [5,140m/16,864ft] and Everest Base Camp [5,364m/17,559ft]

We begin our journey after the first meal to Everest Base Camp, the place where we will begin our expedition. Crossing a pass, walking alongside the glacier, having beautiful views of the mountains witnessing very few teahouses at Gorekshep, we reach Everest Base Camp. Now we are surrounded by snow-clad peaks from all sides.

Upon we reach there, our cook, climbing members, and, other Sherpas will be already there. They will help us set up the tent, cook the meals, etc. making our stay more comfortable.

Day 14 – Rest day at Everest Base Camp

After the continuous trek and peak climb, we become tired and restless. Thus, to reenergize our body, to be well acclimatized around, we rest in Everest Base Camp entire all day, or optionally we can trek up to Kala Patthar, a popular viewpoint that will witness the perfect view of Mt. Everest.

Day 15 – 19 Conduct Puja Ceremony, Training Practices, and get organized at Base Camp

During these four days, we organize a worshipping ceremony, do some climbing practices in ice seracs of the lower Khumbu Glacier to check our equipment and review climbing and rescue techniques, and get fully prepared to climb almighty Mt. Everest.

The worshipping ceremony is organized looking at an auspicious date as per the Tibetan calendar, asking for a safe passage during our expedition.

Day 20 – 54 Climbing Period of Everest [Summit Everest and Back to Base Camp]

Looking at the better weather conditions, and analyzing the guests’ endurance, gradually, we ascend to Camp I, rest some days, get back to base camp, push to Camp II and do the activities already done till we reach Camp III. It will take multiple days. There can be two or three such rotations.

In the end, we begin our journey to the summit push from base camp. Resting in the camps, acclimatizing there, we reach Camp IV and looking at the better weather conditions, we head for the final summit push. Our Sherpa guides will help us in every step there.

After stepping to the highest point of the planet, we head back to camps and ultimately to the base camp and enjoy our climbing with crew members.

Day 55 – Trek Everest Base Camp to Pheriche [4,210 m/13,809 ft]

After the summit climb, we begin our trekking. From Everest Base Camp, we head back to Pheriche today. we will walk along the rugged trail and pass through Lobuche and Thukla Pass. Once we descend the ridge of Thukla Pass, we will cross a short bridge over a glacial stream to arrive at Pheriche.

Pheriche is a small settlement surrounded by hotels, teahouses, and yak pastures. It is also home to the Himalayan Rescue Association Clinic. This voluntary non-profit clinic serves as a rescue station for trekkers and mountaineers in the Himalayas.

Day 56 – Trek to Namche Bazaar

After breakfast, we head towards Namche following steep downhill, rhododendron and juniper forests, and uphill in some places. Diverse flora and fauna along with the scenic views of the tall pinnacles can be witnessed on the trek. The groups of trekkers, climbers, and other domestic animals make the way very busy. Bridges, zigzag landscapes, tiny settlements, cheering people, and religious monuments make the journey more attractive. Once we reach Namche Bazaar, we check in one of the best teahouses and give rest to our tired muscles.

Day 57 – Trek Namche Bazaar to Lukla

The day starts with a steep descent of rock terrain from Namche Bazaar. Until we reach Phakding, there will be one last opportunity to enjoy the sight of the now-distant Himalayas that we stepped some day before. But once the trail turns back uphill, you will pass several Buddhist monasteries, mani walls, and chortens before arriving in Lukla, where the trek concludes.

That evening, we will celebrate your accomplishment with your guide and other local team members. This is a great time to thank them for their help in making your Everest Expedition a success.

Day 58 – Fly back to Kathmandu

Catching early in the morning, while the weather is good, we will board a flight back to Kathmandu. From the plane, we will be able to enjoy one last view of the incredible region as we fly to the city. After the short 35-minute flight, we will arrive in Kathmandu and then be transferred to the hotel.

You are then free to rest or wander around Thamel to purchase souvenirs for your friends and family back home. There are also plenty of restaurants to choose from in this part of the city, serving everything from local to international food items. After your time in the mountains, you will be sure to find something to enjoy for dinner.

Day 59 – Rest day in Kathmandu and Preparation for the Final Departure

This day is scheduled as a rest day for several reasons. Initially, you are back in Kathmandu after two months and you need to get proper rest before departing your country.

Next, due to frequent delays and cancellations of flights in Lukla, it is suggested to include a buffer day for emergencies. If your flight is canceled, this day will ensure you make your international flight home and avoid the hassle of having to change it.

And if everything goes well, you can use this day to go on a city tour, look for souvenirs, get a massage, or do any other activities that you are looking to enjoy in Kathmandu.

Day 60 – Final Departure

On your final day in Nepal, a representative of Outward Adventure will transfer you to Tribhuvan International Airport for your final departure.

Mount Everest Lies in;

Region: Solukhumbu district, Province no 1, Northeastern region of Nepal

Mountain Range: Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas

Elevation: 8,848.86 m (29,031.7 ft)

Latitude and Longitude: 27°59′ N and 86°56′ E

Spring (March to May)

Most of the mountaineers choose Spring season to climb Mt. Everest. It is because, during this season the weather is stable and tempreature is favorable. Days are sunny and nights are chill. The views are expcellent and surroundings look splindid and colorful. There is less chances of bad weather and snowfall. These all make the journey more comfortable.

It approximately takes around 2 months. Most of the climbers reach Everest Base Camp in late March or early April (as spring is the best time to climb Everest). Doing climbing practices or climbing small peaks, climbers begin their upward climb from Base Camp. Acclimatizing in the higher camps (Camp I, II, III, and IV), climbers reach the top of Everest. It requires several days’ regorous climbing practices and acclimatization to reach there.

Although there are some world records that climbers (Sherpas) have spent several hours on the summit. But most of the climbers reach there, take photos and rest for a while and begin their downward walk immediately. It's so high that if you were standing at sea level and could transport yourself instantly to the top of the mountain and there might be altitude-related hazards.

Climbing the tallest peak in the world is Still Challenging, Still Difficult. Not only Everest, climbing every mountain is still a significant challenge. No one is ever guaranteed a summit – ever. But with technical climbing, sound acclimatization, and with experienced Sherpa, you can achieve it. But it's also about luck with the weather and your health too. Healthier you are, the better your chances of climbing.

YES! A normal person with good physical strength and psychological preparedness can do this adventure. Previous climbing experience is obligatory as it will be much benificial for climbing adventure. But there is no cap on how many people can make the climb.

There are two popular routes to climb Everest; one from Nepal (South summit route) and another from China (North summit route). We recommend you climb from Nepal as you will have no difficulties getting visas, permits, etc. in Nepal. The climbing route from Nepal is easier and more comfortable than the north one.

Mount Everest, the tallest peak on the planet attracts hundreds of climbers each year. It has a 14.1% fatality rate. 

While trekking, the meals will be like;

At Breakfast:- Oatmeal, Corn Flakes, Toast with Jam/Butter/Cheese/Honey,  Local Tsampa Porridge, Tibetan Bread or Chapati, Varieties of eggs [omelets, boiled, sunny side up, fried, scrambled], Hot drinks [selections of teas, coffees, hot chocolates, hot lemons], Pancakes, Muesli bread, Fruits and Vegetables, etc.

At Lunch:- Dhal, Bhat, and Tarkari, various soup items, Momo [Dumplings], Pizza [Tomato, Mushroom, Mixed], Spaghetti Noodles, Sherpa Stew Steaks, Sandwiches, Macaroni Dishes, Snacks [Papad, Prawn], Tenduk, Tibetan Bread, Thukpa, Pasta, Vegetable Curry, Potatoes, Salad, Dessert Items [Rice Pudding, Apple pie] and some others.

At Dinner:- Rice, Lentils, and Vegetables [Dal, Bhat & Tarkari], Various Soup Items, Momo [dumplings], Tibetan Bread, Vegetable Curry, Sherpa Stew, Steaks, Spaghetti Noodles, Sandwiches, Pizza [Tomato, Mushroom, Mixed], Macaroni Dishes, Tenduk, Dessert Items [Rice Pudding, Apple Pie], Thukpa, Pasta, Potato Items, Vegetables, Salads, Snacks, Papad, Prawn, Korean Raman, Steaks and some other are included in the menus.

And while climbing, you will have hot soup, cheese, granola, nuts, fruits, and other dry fruits and chocolates. Up high, it is recommended to eat 8,000 – 10,000 calories per day which is 5 times what you burn at home.

Throughout the trek, you will get boiled drinking water, and your bottle/s will be filled with it this will cool overnight and become your main source of drinking water for the next day. In the base camp and above, you will need to store water in a thermos and will drink it later. Your camping cook, Sherpa and other crew members will help you to get fresh, boiled water throughout the journey.

Our Sherpas will recommend you to bring warm clothes according to the situation, and elevation. From the head, you will cover the entire body with respective clothes; your head -- with a polypropylene or wool hat or ski cap. Also, keep your neck warm with a wool scarf or neck gaiter. A fleece zipper jacket that goes up to your neck, and a lightweight down jacket that's not too puffy and has a drawstring waist would come next. These all will help you to be warm throughout the journey.

Yes! Although Sherpas are among the most unfathomably fit athletes around once they reach 8000m. But they do not use oxygen till Camp IV (26,000 ft/7925 m). Most the guests use it once they ascend above Camp III but Sherpas do above South Col only.

During the daytime (after 12 am approximate), the weather becomes extreme and the wind blows so hard making it uncomfortable to climb. During the nighttime, the atmosphere is mostly calm and makes the journey convenient.

Another reason behind this is walking in the daytime, you will reach the summit around midnight. What to see at midnight? Thus, walking in the early night (from Camp IV), you will reach around five am and you will witness the yellowish rays of the sun from the highest point of the Earth.

There is a record of made Pemba Dorje Sherpa (Nepal) climbing from Base Camp to the summit of Mt Everest in a time of 8 hr 10 min, the fastest ever ascent of the world's highest mountain.

Typically, trekkers begin their journey from Base Camp, reach the top, and get back to Camp Four in a single day, spending as little time as possible in the death zone.

Most of the climbers use Insulated Shell Gloves while climbiing Everest. Excellent for use when conditions are too cold for softshell gloves, but too warm for expedition mittens. We recommend models with a durable leather palm.

The census shows that More than four thousand people have climbed Mount Everest from 1953 to today, but fewer than 200 have done so without oxygen.

You may ask, how can a beginner actually climb the highest peak in the world? Professional climbers have tried. Many have failed. It takes about two or three years of adequate climbing to qualify for Everest.

Yes! All the Sherpas with their clients reach the top of Mt. Everest. They help you with every need throughout the journey. To date Kami Rita Sherpa climbed the world's highest peak for a record 25th time. Not only with the guests, but Sherpas also reach the top of Everest and other mountain massifs to fix ropes before the actual climb.

Khumbu Icefall, that lies just above the Base Camp and below Camp I, is taken as the toughest part of climbing Everest.

Due to altitudes and icy lands

Mount Everest lies 8848.86m above the sea surface. As we know the altitudes, increase the cold. The snowy wind blows so hard and it snows almost every day that making the entire atmosphere chill.  And at these altitudes, barely 10 percent of the atmosphere remains, and the air pressure is so low that the temperature falls to a lethally cold -55°C which makes the surroundings freezing.

Is the Mount Everest Expedition Right For You?

The Mount Everest Expedition is the right option for you if you consider the following things:

  • For this expedition, you need to have a permit from the Nepal Government which is available if you have previous climbing experience of any of the 6000+M peaks. Further, you must submit a health report stating that your health is good enough.
  • The budget is another crucial aspect of this expedition. A permit alone costs $11000 (from 2025, it will be $15000) and the overall cost might reach up to -$45000. Collecting this amount for all the climbers is as challenging as climbing itself.
  • Along with physical health, the Mt. Everest Expedition demands mental toughness. Climbers need to have the ability to make the right decision at the right time and working as a team is crucial for the success of the expedition.

  • During the expedition, you will be accommodated in well-facilitated hotels for the first few days.

  • But once you reach the base camp, the accommodation facilities are pretty basic. You’ll stay in tents and eat regular/basic food for around 45 days. Thus, be set for that.

Everest Expedition with Ouward Adventure

I climbed Mount Everest with K P Sherpa in May 2022. It was an amazing experience and my guide was knowledgeable and well experienced who made may dream successful. He has sound knowledge about mountain, gears, equipment and many more and keeps the safety of the climbers in the first priority.

Unlike in the trekking and safari tours, climbing mountain requires a lot of things to do. All the needed things were organized by Outward. I am very happy with the service provided by them and recommend everyone for your adventure to Everest!!!
