The exploration of Mount Everest has a long and varied history – from the first recognition of the peak, to the attempts of Mallory, Irvine, Norton & co and eventually the successful attempt of the British and the impressive solo ascent of Reinhold Messner.
The Sagarmatha (forehead of the sky) in Nepali is known as Mt. Everest throughout the world. With an altitude of 8848m, it is the highest peak on earth. The South face is recognized to lie in Nepal whereas the North face is in China’s autonomous state Tibet. This world’s highest peak was first officially measured in 1856 during the Great Trigonometric Survey of British India government and then known as Peak XV certified with the height of 8840m. With a simple technology and the distance from the mountain, the height was determined with really phenomenal accuracy - only 8m off from the current value of 8848m.
The name of British Surveyor in 1856 was Sir George Everest- the General of British India during the survey period and a somewhat infamous character. Tibet and Nepal were closed to foreigners at the time, so it is reasonable to assume that local names of the mountain were unknown. The name of the highest peak was chosen in his honor, although not without controversy even at the time. The first climbing attempts were not possible until the 1920’s and they ended ultimately in disaster. Success came only in 1953 from the South side on the very same route you’ll be taking for this expedition.
Retrace these historic achievements and write your own history by making an attempt to reach the top of the world. With us as your support crew, everything is possible.
Approaches to ABC (Advanced Base Camp) from South (Nepal):
The approach on its south side is through the Khumbu region of Nepal leading up to the Khumbu Glacier extending down to Lobuche (4940m). It starts with the flight to Lukla and the trek from Lukla to Everest South Base Camp (5364m) via Namche Bazaar (3440m)-Tengboche (3860m)-Pheriche (4371m)-Lobuche (4940m)-Gorak Shep (5164m). It takes typically 8 days to reach ABC from Kathmandu.
Climbing Routes South Side:
• South route is technically a trekking route with a little objective danger once past the Khumbu icefall apart of few crevasses and Seracs bridged by ladders, couple short ice cliffs around camp 3 and rock sections protected with fixed lines. There is an obvious danger of high altitude sickness complications and changeable, unpredictable mountain weather.
• The Khumbu Icefall is a steep glacier with obvious implication of large crevasses and treacherous unstable Seracs making navigation complicated and riddled with high objective danger of falling ice. This is the most dangerous part of the climb. At the beginning of the climbing period, climbing Sherpa set the route through the icefall installing ladders across crevasses and along vertical Seracs ice walls for efficient and easy climbing. These arrangements make climb of the Khumbu icefall possible, efficient and relatively safe, especially early morning before the sunrise, when the ice structure is well frozen. Khumbu icefall is very dangerous in the afternoon due to its western aspect.
• Camp 1 (6000m) is located on the top of Khumbu icefall; it is a desolate and exposed place mainly used as rest and transition location on the way to camp 2 (6400m). The glacier between camp 1 and 2 flattens but there are still large crevasses close to camp 1, which are also fixed with ladders.
• Camp 2 is located in a lateral moraine at the bottom of west ridge. It is a very safe and sheltered location with tremendous views on Lhotse. All companies set-up their main climbing camp for the duration of climbing period with tents for individual climbers, the kitchen and dining tents. Camp 2 is main acclimatization camp and the base for camp 3-acclimatization climb and the final summit attempt.
• Camp 3 (7200m) is located on small ledge on the Lhotse wall. One has to cross the glacier to the right side before 40 deg. 600m climb on the compact snowfield. The route is safe with couple of short less than 3m ice cliffs, which climbing Sherpa’s set up with fixed ropes.
• Camp 4 (7950m) located at South Col is the last camp; it is easily accessible by majority of climbers without supplementary oxygen. There are two rock sections to navigate before camp 4: Yellow Bands interlayer marble, Phyllis and semi schist rocks and Geneva Spur, an anvil shaped rib of black rocks; they are again set-up with fixed ropes.
• This is when the climb starts, the last section of the southwest ridge. It is steep mostly on the snow with some rock section at the Balconies, nice resting platform. The entire route is setup with fixed ropes, which is crucial for safety of all climbers, who are all affected by altitude with low energy and impaired judgments due to oxygen deprivation in the brain and muscle tissue.
• From the south summit there is knife edge southeast ridge with dangerous overhanging cornices; the most exposed section of the climb between 3050m Kangshung face and southwest face and Hillary step at the end, a series of imposing rock steps often bypassed on deep the snow, a serious avalanche danger
Our Everest Climbing Services:
• The Mount Everest is the highest peak of the World 29028ft (8848m) through which the climbing toppers feel themselves as the most proud and adventurous person of the World. Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa first climbed this peak in May 29, 1953, after their long time effort.
• Everest Base camp is situated on the north of Khumbu glacier at high of 18000ft. All the international Mt. Everest climbers assemble here during the starting and at the ending time of their climbing. Normally the climbing duration of this expedition lasts for 90 days. All the climbers who mass there at the base camp seem really busy with excitement for the preparation of their expedition to reach on the summit.
• North Face Tents Some climbers climb this mountain on their own risk without any climbing Sherpa guide; and some climbers go with their own climbing Sherpa guide. Most of the teams carry out their own Internet, Satellite phone, Medical Doctor and rest of the modern requirement.
• After the Base camp, we have to cross crevasses, Seracs and ice block. Similarly we should face to the way up having Chunks of ice as large as our houses where we should used fixed ropes and aluminum ladders to climb ahead camp 1st 6400m.
Camp 1: 20000ft (6,400m)
This camp 1 is situated at the flat area of endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun's reflection from this place we get warm and heating ambience at this place. In the night we listen the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk to reach camp 2.
Camp 2. 21000ft (6,750m)
This camp 2 is situated at the height of the 21000ft, which is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. Weather is here is good but bad clouds roll in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp two. But wind here sometimes seems very violent enough to destroy our tents. After climbing these palaces we reach camp 3.
Camp 3. 22300ft (7,100m)
Camp 3 is located at the height of 22300ft, adjoining to mount Lhotse wall. After climbing the 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization it leads us to camp 4. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep allow bands (lose, down -sloping and rotten limestone). From their crossing short snowfield 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 should probably be use above base camp 3 in case of needed to the climbers.
Camp 4. 26000ft (8,400m)
Now we are on camp 4 which located at the height of 26000ft, it is the last camp of the Expedition. From here summit is about 500m, distance far. This is the final and dangerous part of the climbing. This place is besieged by ferocious and violent winds. The normal best way to reach the summit is via the narrow South -East Ridge and it precedes the South Summits 28710ft. From here the way is easy to reach at the summit of the Everest 29028ft, and late Sir Edmund Hillary and l Tenzing Norgay Sherpa used this route in 1953.

We have noted some probable points related to Everest Climb South side expedition whether they might help you:
Length of Mount Everest Climbing expedition
Everest Expedition total duration is 64 days (Kathmandu to Kathmandu), this duration is planned for the overall expedition such including administrative formalities, approach to/from Base Camp, acclimatization at Base camp, and above Base camp for the summit attempt etc….The daily waling /climbing / ascent duration depends on each camp basis, such as during approach to Base camp an average walking duration is 5-6, whereas from Base camp to Camp III is about the same duration and from Camp III to South Col is about 7+ hours whereas from South Col to the summit is 9+ hours depending on each climber. The above average duration is just generalized, but the actual climbing duration depends on each climber.

Difficulty of the Everest Climb
This is another major question frequently asked. And the answer to this is rather simple; the difficulty of any mountaineering depends on your previous climbing experience, physical fitness, mental preparedness etc… Everest Climbing is of course difficult not from technical part but due to its harsh weather conditions, high altitudes. There will be fixed ropes from the Khumbu Icefall to the summit for climb, so if you are bit careful about using your personal equipments such as you must not forget to cliff on your safety karabiners on fixed lines, step up your crampons carefully etc, the climb is not difficult, but for altitudinal adaptation, though the expedition is well planned in terms of proper acclimatization, at the same time it is important that you must have at least previous climbing / mountaineering experience, properly acclimatized for Everest climb and proper use of technical gears such as crampons, jumar, ice-axe etc., It is also advised that you do physical exercises by running, long walking, cardio vascular exercises and have general check up with your doctor before coming on the Everest expedition.
At an Emergency
ASIANA NEPAL TREKS & EXPEDITION prides itself on being prepared for any emergency situation. Our guides / Sirdars are trained in first aid and can deal with most of the basic ailments that are associated with the Everest expedition / mountaineering. When a serious emergency does occur, then outside help is needed and such rescues are expensive therefore every climber should have his or her own insurance arranged before coming to Nepal. It is advised that you buy the Insurance Policy right from the home Country through a reliable Insurance company covering medical, accidental and rescue evacuation. Please ensure with your insurance company whether they really cover the risk for such high altitude mountaineering expeditions such as for Everest Expedition (8848m / 29,028ft).
Food safety & the types of food
Food safety to keep our expedition members is always a priority for us; therefore we brief you about the food safety before departure on an expedition. All food we take for Base camp use are freshly bought from the market, properly checked the date validity or freshness before dispatch to Lukla and all our cooks and kitchen staffs are trained in cooking varieties of hygienically prepared foods and good taste.
During approach to / from Base camp you will have your breakfast and dinner at your teahouse. We stop for lunch at one of the various trailside restaurants. And snacks are always easy to find. During your stay at Base Camp our well trained and experienced cook will prepare fresh and tasty meals and snacks. We will have plenty of food including the traditional Nepali meal Dal Bhat (rice, curry, and lentils), noodles, rice, potatoes, vegetables and soup and Nepalese versions of western food such as pizza and French fries too. There will be also various types of snacks such as biscuits, chocolates, nuts etc also special cakes prepared by our cook with plenty of drinks such as tea, hot chocolates, coffee, juice etc… And for the Full board expedition service food for higher camps above base camp will be various types of light / energy foods such as chocolate bars, dry fruits, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar, whole meal packed food etc….
Drinking water during Everest expedition
During approach from Lukla to Everest Base camp and Back to Lukla all teahouses have boiled water that is quite safe to drink. Your guide will provide you with all the water you need during your trek to Base Camp, though you may also buy bottled water on the trail, but we do not encourage much on this as the plastic bottles are difficult to dispose of and have become an environmental problem. During your stay at Base camp the water source is either from a small stream or ice melting that our cooks boil and 100% safe to drink or cooking. Above Base camp in the mountains the water source is from snow melting which is safe for drinking as well.
Equipment you should bring
Choosing the right equipment is very important especially for Everest climbing. All group climbing equipments such as ropes, tents, snow bars, ice-screws, shovel, cooking pots are provided from Asiana Nepal Treks & Expedition for full board expedition service, whereas you (climbing members) need to have enough personal clothes to stay warm and good gears for climbing or cool yet not over packed. Usually you will have warm days and very cold nights. Detailed information about the personal gear is available on request or briefly explained about the gear list section of the page.
Extra money to bring
Without knowing your proper service selection of the expedition either Full Board expedition service, Base camp service or any other services, it is next to impossible to justify the correct amount you would need to bring, but there will be always only little money that you can bring for personal expenses such as souvenirs, drinks, personal equipment etc... Therefore, we advise you on this after your chosen expedition service.
Experience of our guides / staffs
ASIANA NEPAL TREKS & EXPEDITION has some of the most dependable and experienced guides / Climbing Sherpas. All of our guides / Climbing Sherpas have spent years climbing mountains and Everest Climbing experience with many times to the Summit, so you can be confident in our staffs.
Accommodations & toilet facility
We provide a single room accommodation for Everest expedition members in Kathmandu in 4 star hotels.

At Base camp you will be provided a single tent with thick mattress and pillow to make your sleep comfortable and at Camp I and above to South Col, you need to share tent with another member which will be also warmer. There will be also a separate toilet and shower tent facility at Base Camp.
Our approach is to raise environmental awareness among Climbers making the Everest expedition an Eco-Everest expedition. We also give information to our valued clients on how to minimize maximum damage on the environment. We clean up and bring all our garbage back from Everest Base Camp and from the mountain as far as possible produced during our Everest expedition.
