EVEREST EXPEDITION (69 NIGHTS/ 70 DAYS)
Mount Everest is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure. To stand at the pinnacle of the earth is one of life’s most rewarding experiences.
As pioneers of guided ascents on Everest, Adventure Consultants recognized as the premier guiding service with a superb reputation for enabling members of our expeditions to achieve summit aspirations.
An attempt on Everest is a committing undertaking, which requires a huge amount of dedication and determination. If you are serious about achieving the top and feel you have the right ingredients and experience, we invite you to apply for a position on our team in 2017, on what will be our twenty -fourth Everest expedition.
Everest presents itself differently during every climbing season, and so we will be prepared to adjust our schedule to ensure the greatest opportunity for safety and success. With years of Everest experience to draw upon, Berg Adventures is committed to climbing Everest in the right way, at the right time, and we have the experience, the determination and ability to make the most of what the mountain has to offer.
FLIGHT TO KATHMANDU
International flights to Kathmandu.

FLIGHT TO LUKLA FROM KATHMANDU
Passenger flights to Lukla. Begin the trek through the Khumbu to Base Camp.
TREK TO BASE CAMP
Trek to Base Camp, taking plenty of time to acclimatize and to visit the Sherpa families and support facilities that will become increasingly important during our expedition. We will spend several days in Namche ahead of most trekkers, and will visit the monasteries in Tengboche and Pangboche. Additional acclimatization days are scheduled at Namche (11,400ft/3,475m) and Pheriche (14,000ft/4,267m).
ARRIVAL AT EVEREST BASE CAMP
Projected team arrival at Base Camp. The camp will be fully established and operational. Climbers will be reunited with their gear and extra clothing and can organize their personal tents the way they like them.
ATTEND POOJA CEREMONY
On the day that the lamas choose to be most auspicious, we will hold a traditional Buddhist ceremony called a pooja to bless the team. Following the pooja, climbers can begin their first journey into the Icefall.
FIRST TRIP TO CAMP I
Possible first trip to Camp I at the top of the Icefall.
First Rotation At Camp I
“First Rotation”—two nights at Camp I, three nights at Camp II, and the return to Base Camp.
REST DAY AT BASE CAMP
Rest days at Base Camp.
SECOND ROTATION AT CAMO I AND II A DAY TRIP TO CAMP III
“Second Rotation” with nights at Camp I and Camp II, and a day trip to Camp III.

“Third Rotation” including nights at Camp I and Camp II, and a night sleeping at Camp III
REST DAY AT BASE CAMP
Rest days. Some team members might elect to descend to lower elevations to recuperate before our summit attempt begins. Others may choose to remain at Base Camp. 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.
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.
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.
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.
