Everest North Col Expedition

Trip Overview

Expedition begins when you arrive at Kathmandu where you meet our staff and transfer to hotel. Next day, we have introduction section with other climbing members & Expedition crews. Then, we make your Tibet visa and other necessary document for the Everest Expedition.

After 3 day, we drive you towards Nepal-Tibet border up to Friendship Bridge through Arnico Highway, where the Chinese liaison officer and Chinese transport meet us. The expedition gears go by truck while we travel by Land. We take time to acclimatize with one night at Zhangmu (2300m) and two nights at Nylam (3750m), which also gives us the chance to trek up high hills for acclimatization.

Next day we drive to Tingri (4350m) where we spend further two nights acclimatizing. Then, we drive Tingri to Base camp 5400 m along rough trails through grassy plain leading up to Everest Base Camp, which is also called Chinese base camp.

We set up our camp at Chinese Base Camp and stay two nights or more, depending on how everyone feels. Base camp is a temporary but comfortable affair with Nepali cook and dining tent. Now the two-day walk towards advanced base camp (ABC) begins.

After being awake for 2 days, we reach ABC at 6400 m along with the Yaks. From ABC, the route goes to the east Rongbuk (Everest Base) glacier and after that there is an easy snow slope to the North Col at 7070 m. You have permit only  for North Col and this is called Everest North Col Expedition.
