Mt. Everest (8848M)

Mt. Everest (8848M)

(59 Nights / 60 Days)

overview

The mountain is called “Sagarmatha” in Nepal, which means “Forehead of the Sky” and in the Tibetan language it is cMt. Everest (8,848m) (29,029 ft.) is the highest peak in the world, and it is still the most adventurous and thrilling climb for mountaineers. The first Everest expedition was known as the British Mount Everest expedition, it was held in 1922 with a purpose to climb the Everest using bottled oxygen. The route to climb was from the northern side out of Tibet. Since then there have been hundreds of expeditions carried out to study the atmosphere, global warming, and this year a group of scientists would be climbing the Everest to study pollution.

The Mount Everest expeditions tours in Nepal are always the toughest because of the height of the paramount peak, the challenges such as the steep ice-slope climbs, the lack of oxygen on the summit, and the time taken for the entire trip. During the Mt. Everest (8848 M) trekking, climbers pass by the Namche Bazaar, and spend a night or two at tea houses. The rest helps in acclimatizing and preparing for higher altitude climbs. It goes without saying that the phenomenal landscapes and the ecstatic feeling of being on the top of the world is priceless.

Weather
The springtime from March to May is considered the favorable weather for Everest climbing. However, the weather conditions in Everest are never fully predictable. Temperatures may get as low as minus 20C in summer, but can drop to minus 60C or even lower during winter. The possibility of bad weather such as snow, wind, and cloud should also be taken into account. Similarly, the wind speeds may rise to 80Km/h (50mph).
