Mount Everest 8848m

About

Mount Everest North Side Expedition is one of our major regular expeditions – obviously the most popular one. We have been regularly organizing and successfully executing Everest expedition from the Tibetan side for over a decade and we are one of the few foreign expedition operators recognized by the China Tibet Mountaineering Association.

Our Everest North Side Expedition takes place every spring season – April to May. And we start it from our base in Kathmandu. Our group meets up here in the capital and after completing visa documentation we fly to Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region. Keeping in mind the acclimatization schedule we take time exploring the Tibetan culture and landscape and slowly proceed towards the Everest Base Camp.

On the Tibet side, we set up three base camps: the main camp at 5200, also known as the Chinese Base Camp, Intermediate Camp at 5800m and the Advance Base Camp at 6400m. Each of these camps are well equipped to provide comfort and quality service to our expedition members. While some of our expedition sherpas set up the three high camp : Camp1 at 7000m, Camp 2 at 7700m and Camp 3 at 8300 our expedition members complete at least two rounds of acclimatization schedule between Camp 1 and the Base Camp. Then as the ropes are fixed until the summit we are ready to make the summit attempt. By the end of May , as we wrap up the expedition we return by road via Kyirong.

There is a before and after an expedition to Mount Everest. This came to change my whole life.
