Everest Expedition – South Face, Nepal 2014
Mount Everest (8,848m/29,029ft), the highest peak in the World. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa were the first ever to climb the Everest in May 29, 1953.
The Everest has two main climbing routes, the southeast ridge from Nepal (most attempted route) and the north ridge from Tibet, where most of the attempts are made during May before the summer-monsoon season. Everest Base Camp (5380m/17,650ft) is the base site for the climbers, also used as a conceding point for the famous Everest base camp trek. Due to the higher elevations in the region, altitude mountain sickness (AMS) is most common; therefore, days of acclimatization are must to ensure precaution from AMS. The challenging feat passes through the ridges containing numerous crevasses and dangerous ice blocks, leading into the “Death Zone –Above 8,000 meters.”
This Everest expedition requires a high level of climbing proficiency on steep, exposed and technical skill and altitude experience above 7000m, rock and Ice climbing experience, capable of 8 hour walk a day and 12-15 hours walk on the summit day. Excellent physical and mentally condition are required for Everest Expedition.
