Trip Introduction;
Mount Everest 8,848 meters is the highest mountain of the world, popularly known as ‘ The Roof of the World ‘. The name – Everest was given in 1865 to honor Sir George Everest, Surveyor General of India from 1830 – 1843 who first recorded the location of Everest , previously known as ‘Peak XV’. Mount Everest is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal within the world’s highest National Park – Sagarmatha National Park. The name of the Mount Everest in Nepal is ‘Sagarmatha’ which literally means ‘Goddess of the Sky’. First confirmed ascent of Mt Everest was made by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on May 29, 1953.

The climb of Everest involves maximum level of climbing experience, high degree of patience and commitment. Apart from the incredible climbing experience of Mount Everest, we will have opportunity to explore around Sagarmatha National Park which is home to variety of wild animals including endangered species such as Snow Leopard, Musk Deer, Red Pandas and Himalayan Thar. Besides, more than 150 species of birds nestle in the region making this region a perfect spot for bird lovers. Everest Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions is a life time opportunity of achieving the summit of world’s highest mountain while exploring the high mountain valleys in the midst of world’s towering mountains.

Everest Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions starts at Kathmandu. After spending a couple of days sightseeing and making necessary preparations for the climb, we will take a scenic flight from Kathmandu towards Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest region. From Lukla we will start our trek by following a well defined trail that goes along beautiful rhododendron forest towards Namche Bazaar – The Sherpa Capital. Acclimatization is very crucial to avoid mental and physical illness and to ensure the successful summit climb.

We will make an early morning uphill hike towards one of the best viewpoint on Earth – Kala Patthar at 5,545 meters for up-close views of Everest, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Pumori, Lhotse, Makalu and other surrounding peaks.

After spending quality time at Kala Patthar we descend back to Gorakshep and trek towards Everest Base Camp. Our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camp and make necessary preparations for the Everest Expedition. We will spend extra days for good acclimatization at the base camp before heading up for climbing Mount Everest. The ascent of the highest mountain demands high level of technical climbing skills with good physical condition and enormous degree of commitment. Following the guidance and instructions of experienced climbing experts recommended by Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions, we will make attempt to reach the summit of Mt Everest for a memorable experience and a life time achievement. We will descend retracing our footsteps back to base camp and follow the main EBC trail all the way back to Lukla.

Reviews

'Roof of the World' - Everest !!! Many thanks to Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition.

Mount Everest also known as the ‘ the highest mountain ‘ on planet is every climber’s dream. Thanks to the enormous effort and support of NGT ‘s Sherpa team members (for carrying, arranging and managing basically everything – Tents , Mattresses, Climbing gears, oxygen cylinders, cooking utensils and other equipments). We received top level of service during the whole expedition period. Our climbing guide was Ang-Dawa Sherpa, without his experience and technical climbing skills – there was no other way in earth we could summit Everest. Standing at the  ‘top of the world’ truly is an exceptional feeling. Up to Base Camp it is basically normal trekking – but from Camp I and higher camps). We really appreciate all the support and burning desire which made our summit climb possible. We lack the words, to describe the intensity and challenges that we crossed before heading to the main summit. We reached the summit around 11 in the morning. We have lot of pictures from the summit and the whole trip. We really had unbelievably amazing experience of our life time. We strongly recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for trekking, climbing and any kind of adventure related activities in Nepal.

Cheers !! Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions 😀
