Mount Everest Expedition Overview
Climb the top of the world Mount Everest 8,848m above sea level is probably the limit of all the adventure on planet earth. The feeling to be at the top of the world is really something unconquerable and perhaps one of the best experiences that you can get. A short walk all along the moraine will take you to the icefall with huge crevasses which are considered as one of the obstacles for Everest expedition. Also, our experienced Sherpa teams will fix ropes as well as ladders that will assist the climbers to traverse through this part to reach Camp I. And then we will continue our climb in order to reach the Camp II. We will ascend on snowy and rocky way up that take us to Lhotse Face then to Camp III. From the camp III our ascend all along the moderate mixed rocks and snow becomes more challenging which will certainly take us to South Col- the Camp IV. The path steepens after moving up to snow slopes to arrive at the crest of the South East edge and we have a easy climb after that steep climbing once more to reach to the South summit. A small traverse and we will climb on a short, vertical rock and snow channel that leads to the final point, to the very top of the Everest.
