“Because it’s there”…….Late Sir George Mallory
Some adventures are meant to be a trip of a life time and this one falls on the top of the bucket list for any mountaineer. Mt. Everest, the highest mountain of the world (8848 m) is named after George Everest, the British surveyor-general of India. Mt. Everest is known in Tibet as Chomolungma and the Nepalese call it Sagarmatha. Mount Everest is located half in Nepal and half in Tibet.
Probably one of the most challenging expeditions, physically and mentally in the world is climbing Mt. Everest. The South Col route from Nepal side is what Sir Edmund Hillary and Late. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa took to reach the summit on May 29th, 1953. Since then every year lots of climbers from around the globe take up this challenge to reach the 8848 meter top and be enlisted in the elite’s climbers group to have reached the highest place on the world, on the summit of Mt. Everest. To join this expedition one must be physically fit, a mountaineer and should have climbed/reached above 6000 meters in altitude at the least or preferably above 7500 meters.
The trip starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and from there following the trail to Everest Base Camp via the famous villages of Namche Bazaar, Thyangboche (Monastery), Pheriche, Lobuche, Gorakshep and finally the Everest Base Camp at 5360 meters. From here we cross the famous Khumbu Ice Fall and set our first camp, Camp I at 6100 meters. Camp II is set at 6400 meters, Camp III at 7100 meters and the last camp, Camp IV at 7950 meters. From here the push for the summit which is less than 900 meters.
