Trip Overview

It is every mountaineer’s dream to conquer the mighty Everest (8848m), the highest mountain in the world. Situated in the eastern part of Nepal, Mt Everest has been capable of inviting hundreds and thousands of trekkers as well as mountaineers in the Khumbu region, every year. Although the climb itself is quite difficult and technical, Everest Expedition gives an opportunity for climbers who want to stand on the top of the world, literally. The view from Everest summit is to die for.

Everest Expedition is not limited to the world’s tallest mountain, but it also features the stunning view of many other snow-capped peaks like Ama Dablam (6856m), Lhotse (8516m), Chu Oyu (8201m), Khumbila (5761m), and Makalu (8481m). The trail to Everest passes through alpine forests, meadows, rocky valleys, steep trails, icy moraines, glaciers, and icefalls. Beside, scenic view of mountains, the trekkers also get an opportunity to explore Sagarmatha National Park, where you may encounter various wild animals like Himalayan black bear, snow leopard, red panda, and so on. The region is inhabited by Sherpa ethnics, so Everest Expedition provides you with the opportunity to learn about their rich culture and lifestyle. Most trekkers use the south-east ridge route for Everest expedition which means they are required to walk sandwiched between Everest and Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world. Climbing Everest requires patience and perseverance as you will be required to walk through steep and slippery paths covered with snow, and you will also need to wait until the weather is favorable for the summit. With the help of the expedition leader and the Sherpas along with necessary training and acclimatization, your dream of conquering Everest can become a reality.
