Everest Expedition

Everest Expedition With an elevation of 29028ft (8848m), Mount Everest is the highest peak of the World. Sir Edmond Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa first step on to this peak on May 29, 1953, with their earnest efforts. Everest Base camp (18000ft.) is situated on the north of Khumbu glacier. All the international Mt. Everest climbers amass here during the starting and at the ending time of their climbing. Normally it is a 90 days expedition. All the climbers gathering at base camp seem busy and excited preparing for their expedition to reach the summit. Some climbers climb this mountain at their own risk without any climbing Sherpa guide while some climbers go with their own climbing Sherpa guide. Most of the teams carry their own Internet, Satellite phone, Medical Doctor and rest of the modern requirements. Several clefts, Seracs and ice blocks should be crossed after Base camp. Similarly, we should face the way up by having Chunks of ice as large as our houses to fix ropes and use aluminum ladders to climb ahead of camp 1 (6400m).

Camp 1. 20000ft. (6,400m): Camp 1 is situated at the flat area of endless snow deep clefts and mountain walls. We can get a warm and heating ambience because of the Sun’s reflection at this place. Deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent can be heard during night. We have to walk in these areas to camp 2.

Camp 2. 21000ft. (6,750m): Camp 2 (21000ft), is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall. Weather here is fine but black clouds roll in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp 2. Wind sometimes seems very violent enough to destroy even our tents here. Climbing ahead we reach camp 3.

Camp 3. 22300ft. (7,100m): Camp 3 (22300ft), is adjacent to Mount Lhotse 8516m. After climbing the 4000ft, Lhotse wall with the help of rope and with prior acclimatization we reach camp 4. We should ascend the steep allowed bands (loose, down -sloping and rotten limestone) on the way. Now, crossing a short snowfield from there the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. (Another wells name meaning Saddle of pass). Oxygen might be needed above base camp 3.

Camp 4. 26000ft. (8,400m): now we are on camp 4 (26000ft), which is the last camp of the Expedition. Summit is just 500 meters away from here. This is the last and dangerous part of the climbing. Violent wind blows at this place. The normal best way to go to the summit is via the narrow South – East Ridge which precedes South Summits 28710ft. This is the route used by Sir Edmond Hillary and Tenzing Norge Sherpa in 1953, following this route we reach the summit of the Everest 29028ft (8848m). It provides extreme happiness and pride.
