Everest South Col Expedition

Trip Overview

Everest South Col Everest, Mount, peak, 29,028 ft (8,848 m) high, on the border of Nepal and Tibet, in the central Himalayas lies in Nepal. It is the highest elevation in the world, called Sagarmatha (“Goddess of the Sky”) in Nepal and Chomolungma (“Goddess Mother of the World”) in Tibet. Everest South Col Expedition route on the Nepalese side of Mt. Everest is the way taken by Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa first climbed it in 1953. Ever since, there have been countless expeditions heading off to the Himalayas.

Everest Base camp is situated on  Khumbu glacier at height of 18000 ft. All the international Mt. Everest climbers assemble here during the starting and at the ending time of there climbing. Normally the climbing duration of this expedition lasts for 90 days. All the climbers who amass there at the base camp seem really busy with excitement for the preparation of their expedition to reach on the summit.

Some climbers climb this mountain at their own risk without any climbing Sherpa guide; and some climbers go with their own climbing Sherpa guide. After the Base camp, we have to cross crevasses. Similarly, we should face large chunks of ice where we should used fixed ropes and aluminum ladders to climb ahead to camp 1 st 6400m.
