Spring 2022 Expeditions Mount Everest (South Face) 8848m/60 days There's a certain pride attached to conquering the world's highest mountain Mount Everest. Though technically not the most difficult mountain to climb, ascending Mount Everest is definitely challenging. You need to be physically and mentally prepared to face the unforgiving and treacherous conditions while climbing. If you think you are ready for the challenge, then off you go! Your journey begins from Kathmandu with a flight to Lukla, the gateway to Everest. After reaching Lukla our trekking guide will guide you through the busy bazaar of Lukla and onward to Phakding, a riverside Sherpa village. From Phakding you trek to Namche and spend a day acclimatizing. The trek to Everest Base Camp, one of the best high-altitude treks in the world, is an added perk of this expedition. The hike through the quaint Sherpa settlements will acquaint you with their lifestyle and culture. En route, you will come across some of the oldest Buddhist monasteries in Nepal. After Namche, you trek across Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorak Shep. Traversing the Khumbu Glacier from Gorak Shep you finally reach Everest Base Camp where you will spend more than a month preparing for your summit. There will be regular acclimatization climbs and exercises along the Khumbu Icefall. Your first camp on the mountain will be set up above the Khumbu Icefall at 5945 meters. After crossing an area known as the Western CWM you will approach your second campsite or Camp II at 6402 meters. The climbing gets more challenging and thrilling as you approach Camp III at 7164 meters. To reach Camp III you need to ascend a steep ice wall of the Lhotse Face. The last camp or Camp IV is situated at 8000 meters in the Lhotse face. Known as the "Death Zone", Camp IV is the most dangerous as climbers usually fall sick at this point. The wind is strong and harsh and breathing becomes difficult without supplementary oxygen. The summit push begins from here. It's a treacherous climb up through the balcony and the rocky Hillary Step. A few more steps and voila you will be standing at the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point in the world. After taking pictures you descend to Camp IV and later to the base camp. You retrace your steps back to Lukla and finally fly back to Kathmandu where your trip ends. All permits and logistics will be handled by the agency. For more information about the cost and itinerary check out Mount Everest Expedition.
