Depending on the individuals and the events of the season, both methods can work well and both options will be fully supported by BAI staff.

  • Day 49-54

    FIRST SUMMIT ATTEMPT

    Firstattempt Mt. Everest summit. We will spend two nights at Camp II, one night at Camp III, and a short night at the South Col before climbing. In 2013, we elected to spend a second night on the South Col. We had plenty of oxygen to support this addition rest before climbing to the summit. The descent will include a South Col night after summit day and a night at Camp II during the descent to Base Camp.

  • Day 55-70

    ESTIMATED COMPLETION TO THE SUMMIT

    Weather and route conditions will affect our schedule. They always do. Climbers coming down from Mount Everest are often eager to continue descending into the forests and villages of the Khumbu and then make their way quickly to Kathmandu and beyond. To accommodate that need, team members are not obligated to wait for the Icefall route to be removed or for Base Camp to be disassembled. On the other hand, climbers are also welcome to linger at Base Camp and further down the valley as they savor the camaraderie and take in the culture and warmth of the people of the Khumbu.

  • Day 71

    COMPLETION OF EXPEDITION

    Make your international plane reservations to leave Kathmandu on this date. As the Berg Adventures Everest Expedition unfolds and our schedule becomes clearer, Berg Adventures staff will help adjust your reservations to match the actual date of your departure. Making a changeable plane reservation is important to account for changes in the schedule. We are happy to help you with your flight arrangements.
