Just like Mount Everest is the tallest mountain peak in the world, Mount Everest Expedition is the greatest mountaineering adventure of all time. Standing at the top of the world is a lifetime opportunity only a few get to experience. Reaching the pinnacle of your mountaineering career comes with a number of life-threatening challenges. It requires the kind of strength, skills, and determination that only a few experienced and dedicated mountaineers can afford. Along with your own abilities, you need a competent team, highly-experienced Sherpa guides, good-quality climbing equipment, and a thought-out itinerary to succeed. That's where we step in! Outfitter Nepal offers an outstanding full-expedition service to take you on your dream adventure. Come with us to Everest this Spring!

Mt. Everest is more than just the highest mountain on Earth. It is full of beauty and mystery. Mount Everest's local names give you a sense of how the mountain commands respect from all who see her. Standing incredibly tall silhouetted against the shared sky of Nepal and Tibet, this mountain has many names: Sagarmatha in Nepali, which means "Goddess of the Sky," and Chomolungma in Tibetan, meaning "Goddess Mother of the World." Whatever name one chooses, its vagueness still lives on.

Mount Everest has two main climbing routes: the southeast route from Nepal and the northeast ridge from Tibet (China), as well as many other less frequently climbed routes. Of the two main routes, the southeast ridge is technically more accessible and more frequently used. It was the route Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norge Sherpa used in 1953, who made history with the first successful summit of Mt. Everest.

It is a 65-day Everest Expedition. After final preparations in Kathmandu, we fly to Lukla and begin our tea-house trek up to the Everest Base Camp. We establish our base camp at 5300m at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall (Everest Base Camp) before heading up to higher camps and finally to the summit. We strive to conduct a safe, successful, and enjoyable experience and will do everything possible to achieve each of these goals. You will feel like the most accomplished person on Earth after a successful Everest expedition.

We have carefully curated the spring itinerary, keeping in mind all the safety precautions and, most importantly, your safety as our utmost priority. Our expert climbing Sherpas and team will lead you to the peak of the great Mt. Everest from the Nepal side for our Everest Expedition. Join Outfitter Nepal's incredible spring expedition to the almighty Everest and prepare to experience the adventure of a lifetime! We are now taking reservations for our Mount Everest Expedition in Spring 2025 and 2026.

A Brief History of the Everest Expedition

Adventurous spirits have always been fascinated by what is also called the Third Pole. Mount Everest was first climbed on May 29, 1953, when Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norge from Nepal reached the top of the world (Mount Everest).

The initial expeditions attempted to climb the peak from the Tibetan side of the North Col because Nepal at the time did not permit Westerners to enter. The 1922 British expedition was the first climb to go above 8,000 meters on any mountain in the world after the initial attempt only made it to a little over 7,000 meters. However, seven porters perished on the descent, marking the first of numerous climbing expedition fatalities on the peak.

George Mallory and Andrew Irvine led an expedition in 1924 that attempted to ascend the notorious North Col. On June 8, the two climbers were visible above the group. They were about 800 meters from the summit when terrible weather descended onto the peak and completely engulfed them. 75 years after the incident, Mallory's body was eventually discovered 8,155 meters up the mountain. Still, Irvine's body has never been located, and it is unclear whether the two ever made it to the top. Nearly 300 individuals have perished on the mountain since that terrible day, many of whose bodies were never found.

Nearly thirty years had passed before the next British expedition was dispatched to the summit. They chose to ascend by the southeast ridge path, which one of the Sherpa guides had previously used on a Swiss trip to reach an elevation of 8,595 meters. Tenzing Norgay, a now-famous Sherpa guide, and Edmund Hillary, a New Zealand mountaineer, were part of the expedition, which Colonel John Hunt led. The world's tallest mountain was first reached by humanity on May 29, 1953, when Hillary and Norgay made their final push to the top.

Since then, there have been many other notable ascents to Everest's summit. Possibly the most colorful story about the early attempts on Everest is the one involving Captain J. Noel and his native companion. He disguised himself as a Mohammaden and made a journey from Darjeeling through Northwest Sikkim and around the north of Kanchenjunga, then tried to reach Mount Everest. Unfortunately, not even the disguise could see him through. His mission was out short, just sixty-five km from Everest when a group of Tibetan soldiers forced them to turn back. 

Although there are a dozen or so routes on Mt. Everest, we follow the classical route, traditionally the most reliable way to the summit. The Everest Climbing Expedition has been successfully organized and climbed many times since then, but this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into satisfaction. With several factors playing in, Mount Everest is risky. One cannot approach the mountain with anything but a serious determination and a focused mountaineering attitude. Everest is still as mysterious, beguiling, and outstanding as ever.

Mount Everest Acclimatization Camps

As we start climbing higher and higher in the mountain from the base camp, we build camps for acclimatization and preparation for the summit. The number of acclimatization camps differs with each mountain. In the case of Everest, there are 4 acclimatization camps. These camps are:

Camp 1 (6095 m)

Camp 1 is located in a flat area surrounded by deep clefts in the mountains and unending snowfall at the height of 20000 ft (6,095 m). The Sun's reflection in this location gives off a warm, cozy atmosphere. The crevasses beneath our tent may be heard making deep cracking noises at night. We must trek through these places to get to Camp 2.

Camp 2 (6400 m)

Located at the base of the snowy Mount Lhotse wall, Camp 2 lies at a height of 21000 feet (6,400 meters). Even though it's sunny here, dark clouds are rolling down to the base of Camp 2 from the low range of the Himalayas. The wind can appear to be so strong at times that it could damage our tents. We reach camp 3 by climbing ahead.

Camp 3 (7240 m)

We arrive at Camp 3 after using a rope to ascend the 4000-foot Lhotse wall and acclimatizing beforehand. On the way, we must climb the steep permit bands (loss, down-sloping, and rotten limestone). The route now continues up the Geneva Spur to the east before concluding on the flats of the South Col after crossing a brief snowfield. Above base camp 3, oxygen may be required.

Camp 4 (7925 m)

Finally, we are at Camp 4, the expedition's last camp, which is at a height of 26,000 feet. The summit is only 900 meters away. The climbing's final and most hazardous section is here. At this location, a violent wind blows. The Southeast Ridge, which is narrow and comes before South Summit 28710 feet, is typically the best route to use to reach the summit.

Following this trail, we arrive at the Everest summit at 29028 feet, which is the same route that Tenzing Norge Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary took in 1953. Within a short while, you reach the top of the world (8848m).

How safe is the Mt. Everest Expedition in Spring?

As more climbers are now attempting it, Everest is becoming safer and safer. With 1,169 summits between 1923 and 1999, 170 individuals perished on Everest, which is 14.5%. From 2000 to 2021, there were 9,571 summits and 135 deaths, or 1.4 percent, which represents a sharp drop in the number of fatalities. With 17 fatalities in 2014, 14 in 2015, and 11 in 2019, however, three years distorted the death rates. Improved equipment, weather predictions, and an increase in the number of climbers engaging in commercial operations are the leading reasons for the drop in fatalities.

The sheer number of risks and perils that one can anticipate during the Mount Everest Expedition and Climb is mind-boggling. Anything can happen at any time because the weather up there is infamous for being unstable. One of the most dangerous tragedies you may anticipate is the Serac collapse, along with avalanches.

It could become exceedingly cold, which might reduce visibility. The worst bodily symptoms, such as hypothermia, frostbite, thickening of the blood, fractured bones, exposure, etc., may occur in addition to natural calamities. HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Adema) is another major health concern due to high altitude. For this reason, only experienced alpinists are permitted to attempt this task. 

What are the challenges of the Mount Everest Expedition?

The expedition is rated to be an extremely challenging one. Death Zone, located 8000 meters above sea level, is when the Mount Everest Expedition's hardship begins. Because of the intense heat and thin air, the body loses energy. Even seasoned climbers can endure heart attacks, sluggish judgment, or other challenges. In light of this, one should use greater caution when traveling near Mount Everest. One must practice using climbing tools such as fixed ropes, crampons, ascenders, karabiners, and jumar to test the extreme level of difficulty. They must practice adjusting to low temperatures and low oxygen levels as well.

You should have at least some prior climbing experience before undertaking the Everest Spring Expedition. In addition to this, you must have unwavering resolve if you want to reach the summit successfully. Then, and only then, can you accomplish this quest! Additionally, this expedition is unsuitable for the frail. You should also possess the exceptional skill to complete this expedition. It would help if you were mentally and physically tough. Similarly to this, you need to have complete physical fitness before embarking on the adventure to conquer all of Mount Everest's challenges effectively.

How is the Everest Spring Expedition carried out?

Our Everest Spring Expedition itinerary is curated with expertise, planning, and strict adherence, allowing for the greatest number of days for the approach, the highest standard of service, and an effective team of guides. The safety of our clients is our top priority when planning our adventures. We extend additional oxygen support and comfortable accommodations at Base Camp and Camp 2 (Advanced Base Camp).

Following Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorekshep, and eventually Everest Base Camp, we trek along the classic base camp trail. The trekking route has good lodging and food facilities. You'll be sleeping in cozy tea houses and eating delicious Himalayan meals. We set up our camps at the Everest Base Camp, which is going to be our home for the training and climbing period. 

At the base camp, ice seracs of the lower Khumbu Glacier, a pre-training session/climbing course will be held to assess climbers' equipment and go over climbing and rescue tactics. There are strategically placed acclimatization days to make sure your body is well-adjusted to the increasing altitude.

The rotation of higher camps through the infamous Khumbu icefall marks the start of one of our acclimatization phases. Above the base camp, four camps will be built. Camp 1 at the top of the icefall and Camp 2, which will serve as our Advanced Base Camp, will be set up. At the top of the cirque on the Lhotse Face, we will erect Camp 3. Before going to the summit, Camp 4 will be the last stop. The South Col will be the location of Camp 4.

Your expedition leader will make recommendations based on your circumstances. We often spend the night in Camp 2 and tag the Lhotse Face/Camp 3 as part of our acclimatization regimen. After finishing this, we take some time to recover at base camp while we watch for a weather window to tackle the summit. After Camp 3, an easy ascent will be achieved using oxygen cylinders. We will reach the South summit from Camp 4 by climbing along the southeast ridge. From the South Summit, we will proceed toward Hillary Step before the actual summit.

What is the cost of the Everest Expedition?

The cost of the Everest Expedition varies on a number of factors. The prices that various trekking and mountaineering companies charge are based on the services they provide. Local businesses offer a better range of prices than foreign ones because no middleman commission is involved. The cost of the Everest Expedition also ranges depending on the number of mountaineers on the team. Our team provides first-class, all-inclusive services with a focus on safety, a successful summit approach, and excellent base camp assistance.

If you are a group of 7 to 10 mountaineers, the cost can go as high as US$ 29,000. Likewise, for a group of 2 to 6, it goes to be around US$ 33,000. Similarly, if you are a solo climber, the cost is about US$ 36,000. We would also like to remind you that you can customize the expedition itinerary and add in more acclimatization days. However, the cost of the package will alter with the changes made to the itinerary.

ItineraryTrip day to day detail itinerary

Our Outfitter Nepal representative picks you up from the Tribhuvan International Airport and takes you to your hotel. You have the rest of the day to yourself.

    This is the day you enjoy strolling around Kathmandu and exploring some of the UNESCO world heritage sites such as the Durbar Squares, Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath temple, Swayambhunath Stupa and many other places. You can also buy some of the climbing equipment at Thamel in case you left out purchasing some gears back home.

      Today we make sure we have arranged all the climbing and trekking permits for you. You will also get an official briefing from the government officials of the Department of Tourism regarding the standard procedures and protocols during the Everest Expedition.

        We get an early-morning flight to Lukla, the starting point for all Everest expeditions. One of the most picturesque aviation routes in the world ends with a dramatic landing on a hillside surrounded by tall mountain peaks during this journey over mountains. We will start our trek after meeting our camp staff and porters in Lukla.

        The sacred mountain Mt. Khumbila, which has never been climbed, can be seen from Cheplung Village, where we will be heading on a trail that progressively descends. With one last descent, we will arrive at Phakding, which is on the primary commerce route that passes through the region and has many pristine, well-constructed lodges. We have an overnight stay at Phakding.

          We continue our stroll on the track that ascends the Benkar valley to the north after passing through a pine grove on our route. Before arriving at the Sagarmatha National Park's entrance, we cross the Dudh Koshi River and travel by the villages of Chumoa and Monjo. Then, after passing through the Jorsale hamlet and a suspension bridge, we continue trekking alongside the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. We climb a rocky trail till we reach Namche Bazaar, the Khumbu region's capital and likely the largest town in the Everest region. It is a thriving trading town with authentic Tibetan antiquities. We have an overnight stay at Namche Bazaar.

            To get our bodies used to the high altitude, we acclimatize in Namche Bazar. We continue to move and don't stop, nevertheless. We go on a hike to Thame, visit Khunde, or tour Namche Bazaar itself. The Khumbu region's main hub, Namche Bazar, is home to a large number of cafes, banks, and other institutions. To acclimatize effectively, we recommend a hike of a few hundred vertical feet.

            We can go to Sir Edmund Hillary’s Khunde hospital or the Sherpa Cultural Museum. The Syangboche Airstrip and the Everest View Hotel are both accessible via a quick hike. You will be mesmerized by the breathtaking views of the entire Himalayan range, including Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru.

              The distance up to Phunki is a short stroll. From here, we climb toward the Tyangboche hamlet, which is home to the largest and most well-known monastery in the Everest region, the Tyangboche monastery. Panoramas of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku, can be observed from the monastery. If we arrive at the Tyangboche Monastery by three o'clock, we can witness a Buddhist religious ceremony since it opens at three o'clock. We have an overnight stay at Tyangboche.

                Our trail drops and travels through verdant forests of birch, confer, and rhododendron trees, leaving some Chortens, Mani walls, and small settlements in its behind. We can appreciate excellent views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam while trekking. We ascend a hill to Deboche and descend to Pangboche after crossing the Imja River. We decide to climb the upper Pangboche trail and enjoy the view of the Himalayas and the Pangboche Monastery. The Imja Valley and the Lobuche River are our next stops on the way to Dingboche. It is a charming community with lovely fields of buckwheat, barley, and potatoes, as well as scattered grazing animals. We have an overnight stay at Dingboche.

                  This portion of the expedition is crucial. The region of Dingboche is ideal for acclimatization. We can adequately acclimate to the high altitude by staying here for a few days. To facilitate gradual acclimatization, the team leader will plan daily excursions to the nearby hills. Hike up some of the local hills to gradually expose yourself to higher altitudes. To ensure that you get the greatest acclimatization possible before you arrive at base camp, stick to the regimen that you previously discovered to be most effective. At a hospital managed by the Himalayan Rescue Association close to Pheriche, we can take part in a session on high altitude acclimatization while we're in Dingboche.

                  The hike to Pheriche and return will be a beneficial acclimatization exercise. We will ascend a ridge behind the hamlet during this acclimatization period so that we can observe six of the world's tallest peaks, including Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. We spend the night at Dingboche again.

                    You must keep going till you reach a stupa. The trail descends to Pheriche village from here. Beautiful vistas of peaks like Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Tawache, Ama Dablam, and others can be seen as you go. You'll walk past Thukla and a small wooden bridge on your approach to Pheriche. On your way farther, you will see a memorial to those who perished trying to cross this treacherous terrain. Even though it's a hard climb, the better views we get as we approach closer to our destination encourage us to keep going until we reach Lobuche. The ascent to Lobuche becomes extremely steep. We have an overnight stay at Lobuche.

                      You set out on your adventure in the early hours of the day. The trail will be more difficult today than it was yesterday. You must climb a glacier route and a rough moraine.

                      Gorakshep is the first stop on the trail to Everest Base Camp. It is heartwarming to realize that snow-covered mountains surround you. After fully immersing ourselves in the scenery from the EBC and snapping several pictures, we make the trek down to Gorakshep and rest for the day. We have an overnight at Gorakshep.

                        Once you pass the Khumbu icefall, the route is theoretically a trekking route with low risk. However, around Camp 3, there are a few seracs and crevasses that you cross using ladders, a few small ice cliffs, and rock parts secured with fixed lines. High altitude sickness can have catastrophic side effects. On the mountain, the weather can occasionally be erratic and variable.

                        The Khumbu icefall is the most hazardous section of the ascent. It is a steep glacier with numerous sizable crevasses and misleadingly unstable seracs. The difficulty of navigating around this obstacle increases the high objective threat of falling ice.

                        The Sherpas will help fix ladders over the crevasses for your safety during the expedition. Hence, they help establish a trail through the ice fall, making the climbing more efficient, safer, and effective.

                        You complete the ascent early in the morning when the force of the wind is still low. The terrain is warmed in the late afternoon sun, which reduces the friction between the ice formations and raises the possibility of crevasses opening or ice chunks falling. It is not safe to cross the Khumbu icefall during the afternoon.

                        To avoid the high afternoon gusts at the summit, we set off as early as possible. Our experienced Sherpa climbers will take the lead to help you accomplish the ascent.

                        Our equipment will be carried by the Sherpa guides to assist us. On the way up to the peak, there will be a total of four camps set up.

                        Camp 1: 6400m

                        On top of the Khumbu icefall, Camp 1 is set up. The mountain cliffs are encircled by a level of horizontally falling, heavy snow. The powerful gusts of wind blowing on the mountain make the night cold and the days warm. Camp 1 to Camp 2's glacier is a level one glacier. A ladder is used to mend the wide crevasses adjacent to Camp 1. Just underneath the tents, a distinct crackling sound is heard. Before relocating to Camp 2, Camp 1 is a place for recuperation and transition.

                        Camp 2: 6750m

                        The location of Camp 2 is either the lateral moraine at the base of the west ridge or the foot of the Lhotse wall. With breathtaking views of Mount Lhotse, it is a secure and protected spot. The cooking and dining tents, as well as individual tents, will be erected at Camp 2. The main acclimatization camp and the starting point for the ascent to camp 3 are both Camp 2.

                        Camp 3: 7100m

                        A fixed rope is used to access Camp 3, which is next to the Lhotse division. As we continue to ascend, the Geneva Spur appears to our east. At this elevation, the oxygen levels will be rapidly decreasing. There is additional oxygen available in the event of any inconvenience. The majority of climbers won't need extra oxygen until Camp 4. The glacier is traversed by the right side, requiring a 600-meter climb across the snow at a 40-degree angle. With only a few ice cliffs less than 3 meters high, the route is relatively safe.

                        Camp 4: 8400m

                        Camp 4 is the final camp before the summit. Camp 4 is the most hazardous portion of the climb and is located on the south col. The distance to the summit is only 450 meters. Here, the winds are ferocious and forceful. The most direct path to the summit is along the curvy southeast ridge. This is the same pathway traveled by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay during their first Everest summit in 1953.

                        Beginning from Camp 4, the final segment of the southeast ridge is the ascent to the summit. The majority of it is rocky and steep. For the safety of climbers, the entire route is fixed with ropes. Almost every climber is influenced by altitude and suffers from poor judgment due to oxygen deprivation, more oxygen is provided. In the Himalayas, they call it summit fever. One should not make abrupt decisions at such a high altitude during the expedition.

                          It is always crucial that we have some sort of payment to the ecosystem for their services. Picking up the waste and taking it back is also considered to be a way to pay back the ecosystem service that Everest offers. We make sure that we take away all the waste that we may have produced during the expedition back with us to Lukla. This way, we help keep the Everest region clean and beautiful. This is also the day we start preparing ourselves to descend the trail and comprehend returning to the lower sections. We have an overnight stay at Gorakshep.

                            In the early hours of the day, you climb to Kala Patthar. Kala Patthar is a popular viewpoint in the Everest region. Kala Patthar offers panoramic views of the Himalayan Mountains as well as stunning dawn. Spend a while at the lookout before heading down to Pheriche for the evening.

                              From Periche to Tyangboche, we will be doing a fantastic descent. We will be primarily descending, making this hike of our journey easier. Altitude sickness will gradually subside as we descend since the oxygen levels rise, making it easier for us to breathe normally. We will pass through a number of famous sites, including the Tyangboche monastery. We have an overnight stay at Tyangboche.

                                We are now descending the same pathway we had ascended before our Everest Expedition. The trek to Namche Bazaar from Tyangboche is an easy walk and we pass by the familiar sites we had observed during the ascent. At Namche Bazaar, a hot shower awaits you. We have an overnight stay at Namche Bazaar.

                                  We will go past the village of Phakding on our way back to Lukla. It might be a difficult fall from Namche to Dudh Koshi. Your core will be put to the test by the constant slopes. The path will flatten out somewhat once you've crossed the suspension bridge. For the last time, we stroll through rhododendron forests while admiring the snow-capped Himalayas. We have an overnight stay at Lukla.

                                    After departing from Lukla, you will have an exhilarating flight back to Kathmandu while taking in one more view of the snow-capped Himalayas.

                                      You are finally back in Kathmandu. You can utilize this day as a rest day after the long and hard Everest expedition or you can choose to roam around the beautiful city by yourself or with Outfitter Nepal.

                                        You can purchase some souvenirs to take back home for your loved ones. Enjoy your last day by roaming around the buzzing Thamel and witnessing Nepal at its best on your last day.

                                          We'll drop you off at the airport so you can catch a trip home or to anywhere you'd like to go. We hope you had a great time with Outfitter Nepal.

                                            Spring, the Best Season for Everest Expedition

                                            The weather on Everest is a crucial consideration while embarking on this adventure. If the weather isn't favorable, wait till it improves. Always watch the weather forecasts for reports of potential avalanches and strong winds. It is reasonable to state that when it comes to Everest climbing excursions, every season is difficult. Among all, spring is regarded as the best season for the Everest Expedition.

                                            The spring season incorporates the months of March, April, and May in Nepal. Right after the end of May, the monsoon starts in Nepal, and the days get extremely rainy, making the Everest region's weather considerably risky. Thus, even during the spring, Everest Expedition is more favorable when you depart by the last week of March or the first week of April so you can accomplish the expedition before the end of May.

                                            Note: The Everest Expedition can also be accomplished during autumn. The autumn months include September, October, and November. However, the weather may not be as forgiving as during the spring months. Although the summit can be accomplished, it is not as popular as the spring months.

                                            Monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February) are the most brutal months for the Everest Expedition and are rarely accomplished. The weather is the toughest during these seasons and extremely unstable, quite contrary to the spring season. Thus, the spring months are considered the best season for Everest Expedition.

                                            Everest Expedition in March

                                            The most fantastic time to go on an adventure in the Everest region is around March. Due to the calm atmosphere, pleasant temperatures, and picturesque surroundings, this month is ideal for mountain climbing trips. The Everest expedition is, therefore, best done in March.

                                            March is a great month to climb Mount Everest because of the steady weather with little precipitation. The temperature may slowly increase and warm up over the month. While nighttime lows might be significant, daily highs often range from 10 to 15 degrees Celsius.

                                            In the high-altitude region, temperatures might plunge to a minimum of -15 degrees Celsius. It is possible to see the silver Himalayas in all their beauty on clear mornings with a bright sun. The beautiful weather makes it possible for you to see the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings.

                                            There may be snow left over from the winter in the Everest Region's highest areas in March. Consequently, anybody choosing to climb Everest this month must deal with snow-related concerns during the ascent. But the snow won't have a significant effect on your trip. If you are an experienced climber, you can manage the snow without a problem.

                                            Everest Expedition in April

                                            Expeditions in the area also do well in April. Beautiful panoramic vistas are available in the Everest region, where you can see the snow-capped mountains surrounding you from all sides. Rhododendrons and other wildflowers are still present along the trail's excellent pathways. It is typically colder at night in this area than during the day.

                                            Enjoy the lovely springtime hues in April. The weather begins to warm up after being icy for a while. You can clearly see the Himalayas as well. In April, the overall weather pattern is unaltered. The magnificent sun will shine down on you and illuminate you brilliantly.

                                            Additionally, the area is ideal for trekking because afternoon temperatures in the area range from 15 to 20 degrees Celsius. Later in the night, the temperature drops to zero. Similarly, the excursion's highest elevations have constant temperatures that are very close to freezing. There are no weather-related problems like avalanches, landslides, or slick trails this month. The trails along the route are still packed this month due to the trip's peak season.

                                            Everest Expedition in May

                                            May marks the end of the spring season in the area. As a result, the Everest expedition is at a pivotal point. The weather in May is warmer than the weather in April since the area stays substantially hotter. The region is warm and humid due to its proximity to the summer monsoon season. As a result, you should use caution when hiking during the latter few weeks of the month.

                                            The area frequently has sunny days with temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. Temperatures are warmer at lower elevations. The days in the area gradually get longer and warmer over the month. The view of the snow-covered mountains is uninterrupted, and the air is warm. May's highlight is the trip to Everest in the clear air and on bright days.

                                            Climbing Route to the Summit

                                            There are two climbing routes to get to the top of Mt. Everest: Nepal's side and Tibet's side. Our Everest Expedition follows the legacy of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary from Nepal's side. We climb through the path of the Khumbu Icefall, the Western Cwm, the Lhotse Face, the South Col, the South Summit, the Hillary Step, and finally, the summit.

                                            Our itinerary has been created with consideration for every significant factor to allow for a well-paced acclimatization program over the entirety of the expedition.

                                            Acclimatization Strategy

                                            Proper acclimatization is essential for high-altitude climbing. The itinerary for our Everest Expedition has been meticulously planned with consideration for every detail. Our route includes one 6000+ peak summit. Including this climb improves each climber's acclimatization and allows them to practice their climbing techniques.

                                            After this, we enter Phase 2 of Acclimatization, where we climb to Camp 1 and Camp 2, rest at Camp 2 (Advanced Base Camp), touch Camp 3, and descend to the Base Camp. Only then do we go for the final summit push.

                                            Please be aware that these acclimatization plans could change over the expedition duration because every climber adjusts to an altitude differently.


                                            The only mode of transportation to the starting point of the Everest expedition and other excursions in the Everest region is by airways. You'll board a domestic morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, which kickstarts your expedition. Prepare yourself for flight delays and cancellations as it is risky to land in the hazardous airport of Lukla in low visibility resulting from poor weather. We have plenty of days to cover the delay, so there's nothing to worry about. We will also provide your airport pick-up and drop.


                                            Throughout the duration of the expedition, our Everest Expedition team will be provided with a satellite phone for emergency use. While the cell phone network may be accessible at base camp and during the hiking portion, the service is unreliable and subject to change depending on the weather. At base camp, satellite internet access is chargeable. The cost of using the satellite phone for personal calls is $3 per minute.

                                            We also offer a radio communication system to facilitate communication between the camps.

                                            Accommodation and Meals

                                            We provide visitors with a room at a 3-star hotel with breakfast in the heart of Kathmandu. Since lunch and dinner are not included in the package, you are free to eat anywhere you wish for the other meals.

                                            During the trekking journey, you'll stay the night in a guest home, mountain lodge, or teahouse. The cost of the lodge or teahouse where you spend the night includes breakfast and dinner. We'll stop at a teahouse by the road for lunch. The popular and energizing Nepalese food "daal bhat" is the best option for lunch and dinner while hiking. Popular breakfast options include toast with eggs and oatmeal or Tibetan bread with eggs and curries. Depending on availability, you can also purchase different foods, such as pizza, noodles, momo, and others.

                                            You will be given a private tent to sleep in at base camp. Additional tents are available for the dining area, kitchen, restroom, and other facilities of the camp. At the base camp, the kitchen crew will prepare meals for you. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and coffee or tea are all included. We have competent cooks who prepare delicious, nutritious meals for high-altitude expeditions. Since carbs are a critical source of energy and are considerably easier to digest, we'll concentrate on taking more of them. Fresh vegetables will be served with every effort. Even though staying at a high altitude has a significant impact on your appetite, you still need to eat well.

                                            In the high camps, we offer commercially produced freeze-dried food products that are imported from the US or the UK. They are easy to make at altitude and come in a variety of premium flavors. Your climbing Sherpa will melt enough ice for you to have access to hot water, tea, coffee, and juices. However, fresh food cannot be transferred to the higher camps from the base camp. You're free to bring your lightweight snacks to munch on.

                                            Sherpas, Guides, and Porters

                                            To climb mountains in Nepal, you need a Sherpa mountain guide. Sherpas are young people from the Himalayan region, and their main job is to help mountain climbers get to the top of their ascents. A knowledgeable Sherpa mountaineer who will accompany you at all times will support your ascent. They will provide you with instructions, fix the ropes, direct the trail, and assist you as needed from the base camp to the top and back. You must obey their commands and proceed up the hill with them. In addition, they will decide when to start each ascent after evaluating the weather.

                                            Before and after summiting, the Everest Expedition requires several days of hiking in the Everest region. Trekking in this region does not require a guide. However, a trekking guide dramatically increases the effectiveness of your expedition. Each expedition group will receive a professional trekking guide from Outfitter Nepal. As a result, your group will have a trekking guide who will help you get around the landscape, book accommodation along the hiking trail, communicate with locals, and deal with emergencies.

                                            Your climbing supplies will need to be carried by a porter to base camp because they are hefty. Our Everest Spring Expedition package includes one potter for every climber, so you can hike without worrying. A potter will only assist you in reaching base camp and can only carry 20 kilograms. You'll then need to carry your own climbing gear or take help from your Sherpa.


                                            Before starting any adventurous activities, such as high-altitude treks, it is required to obtain rescue insurance. If AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) occurs at a high altitude where no other transportation methods are available, emergency helicopter rescue is our only option. So, we advise all of our guests to obtain insurance that includes emergency helicopter evacuation. The insurance is also helpful during weather emergencies. Other crucial considerations for your insurance purchase include medical costs, lost luggage, delays and cancellations, death, and repatriation.

                                            It is advised to carefully research the insurance and its coverages before making a choice.

                                            Qualifications Required

                                            Before trying larger mountains like Mt. Everest, climbers are expected to have at least 7000m or 8000m of prior mountaineering experience, such as Cho-Oyu or Manaslu. This is because high-altitude expeditions like Everest require prior mountaineering expertise.

                                            A furious determination, good mental health, and a burning desire to conquer the mountain are other requirements for participating in this expedition because you will be spending two months far from civilization in the remote Himalayan landscape with extreme weather. Get ready to deal with fatigue, arduous weather, and high altitude sickness. Using climbing gear, walking on snow and ice, and having a high degree of fitness are all prerequisites. You need to understand how to use your specific harness as well as ascenders (Jumar), descenders, ice axe arrest, and rope techniques.

                                            For Mount Everest Expedition, a climbing permit is necessary in addition to the standard hiking and entry permits for the Everest region. You can only begin the expedition once you have the following necessary permits.

                                            • Mt. Everest Expedition is one of the most difficult adventure activities in the entire world. However, with proper planning, adequate preparation, strong determination, and previous climbing experience, one can efficiently climb Mt. Everest. The difficulty of the expedition depends on the following common factors:

                                              • Temperature and weather conditions
                                              • The ascent route
                                              • Physical well-being
                                              • Basic Mountaineering Techniques and Climbing Skills
                                              • Expertise in mountain climbing
                                              • The danger of acute mountain sickness at high altitudes
                                              • The distance you'll travel throughout your trip
                                              • Clothing and Equipment
                                            • Your level of acclimatization and the time of day both play a role in this. Everything appears slower and longer at first, but the days fly by as you become more accustomed to the mountain. Days might last 5 to 10 hours on average. A summit day may last up to 20 hours.

                                            • Typically, your pack won't weigh more than 5-7kg/10-15lb. The weight of your pack will be 9–18 kg (20–40 lb) on "carry" days when you transfer your personal belongings between camps and 5-7 kg (10–15 lb) on "move" days. This fluctuates depending on how much equipment you opt to take. Your pack weight will always be between 5-7kg/10-15lb, as carrying your overnight kit is part of the excursion package.

                                            • All of our tour guides carry complete medical kits with medications for altitude sickness like Sildenafil, Nifedipine, Diamox, and Dexamethasone. In most cases, taking preventive altitude medicine before or during your expedition is not necessary, but if you have a history of altitude sickness, please talk to us and your doctor about it.

                                              However, you must bring any usual prescriptions you use (remember to let us know about them), along with extras. Bring a small first aid package as well, containing a blister kit and moderate headache medicine for the typical headaches associated with high altitude.

                                            • You should be in the best fitness level of your life for this expedition! It is our year's longest excursion. It calls for perseverance, mental toughness, and a strong will. A summit day may occasionally last up to 20 hours or more! The difficulties change from day to day, but the more emotionally and physically prepared you are, the easier your journey will be. 

                                            • A great level of physical endurance and mental tenacity are necessary for mountaineering. Climbing mountains is an exceedingly difficult activity, even for the healthiest and fittest people. So, start a hard fitness and training regimen immediately to show up in top physical shape and be self-assured in your abilities. Concentrate on developing the strength, endurance, and skills required to handle the physical and technical challenges of the climb. The finest physical and technical demands of your climbing target are modeled in your fitness and training regimen. The more your training resembles climbing, the closer you are to the start of your program.

                                            • The usage of additional oxygen supply is extremely important when climbing high-altitude mountains because it can help you avoid numerous dangerous situations and even save your life. On Everest, we give each climber 11 bottles of oxygen (8 for you and 3 for your Sherpa), together with the newest mask and regulator (Summit Oxygen Systems). We run oxygen at a higher flow (2L/min) during the summit push, enabling you to climb more quickly.

                                            • Since there are no other modes of transportation available in the Everest zone, helicopter evacuation is our last resort in an emergency. We advise including helicopter evacuation in your insurance. Our experts will evaluate your problem and its seriousness first. If the condition is not serious, they will utilize their expertise to encourage you to complete the excursion. A helicopter evacuation will be carried out in an emergency, though.

                                            • Until we get a confirmation call from your insurance provider, helicopters won't be dispatched to the emergency scene. The cost of your evacuation in Nepal will be on your own dime. However, you can request reimbursement when you return home. It is advised to gather a letter of recommendation from a registered doctor as well as receipts for helicopter evacuations. These documents are necessary for the insurance company to support your claim. After a significant helicopter scam in Nepal in 2018 that involved a considerable amount of money, insurance firms have increased their efforts to prevent similar ones. Additionally, our team in Kathmandu will remind you of this procedure at briefings.

                                            • We pack solar panels and battery banks for our journey. Satellite phones, computers, and other electrical components of the expedition must first be recharged. Usually, it has enough power left over to recharge your electronic devices. Rechargeable digital cameras shouldn't be used because they frequently break down when there is no power. For cameras, use replaceable batteries; lithium batteries are advised.
