Mountain Everest (8848.86m) is located bordering Nepal and Tibet. It is known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma in Tibetan. John Hut led the first British Everest expedition using the southeast ridge route and his two members – Sir Adman Hillary and Tenzing Norgay conquered the tallest peak in the world on May 29, 1953. Then, there were so many world records set by national and international mountaineers until today. Sometimes, the mountaineers were the heartbreaking disaster on Everest in the past years. Anyway, climbing Everest is a dream of most mountaineers to standing at the pinnacle of the Earth is one of the most rewarding experiences.

We cater to all the logistics, supply gears, and use mountain guides (IFMGA certified), chef, and porters. We set off expedition tents at Everest Base Camp and the higher camp I, II, III, and IV as long as the expedition continues. Cook (chef) prepares hygienic meals.

Everest climbing route from base camp to camp II passes over deep and dangerous crevasses where the icefalls doctors fix ropes and aluminum ladders in every season. Everest expedition is in an extremely high altitude environment where one needs an acclimatized body and is well trained for the activity of climbing. Our journey to base camp begins from Lukla Airstrip. The guide gives you climbing training such as glacier travel, crevasse crossing by ladder, and use of oxygen, mask, and regulator when we have acclimatization days at EBC.

Our expedition crews supply all the climbing gears, food, fuel, and Poisk Oxygen bottles with the TOP OUT masks and regulators, and set off expedition tents before we are pushing higher each camp. We climb through the Khumbu icefalls between EBC to Camp III for acclimatization several times. We come back to EBC from Camp III after we completed acclimatization training. We take a couple of days to rest at EBC after the acclimatization training and checking the weather forecast for the Everest Summit attempt. Then, we head up through Khumbu Icefalls to Camp I, II, III, IV (South Col), and the last climb through Hillary’s step to the summit of Everest 8848m. We give one climbing Sherpa guide for one climber (1:1 ratio) to scale the summit and retrace back steps to the EBC safely.

Our expedition crews bring back all the garbage that we made on Mountain Everest during the climbing period. Our campsites will be cleaned by the crews after we left them. We do not leave any trash behind en route.
