Despite being the highest mountain on planet earth, Mt. Everest (and the rest of the Himalayas) is relatively young. “Young” when compared to their American and European counterparts such as the Andes, the Alps, and the Rockies. European climbers were able to get close to Everest only when Tibet was open to outsiders in the 1920s. Since then, the Everest has fascinated the mountaineers all over the world. George Mallory gave his now famous reason behind his interest in Everest Expeditions quipping, ‘Because it’s there’. Unfortunately, Mallory and Irvine disappeared high on the mountain in 1924. Mt. Everest was first summited in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via the South Col. Because Everest is the highest mountain in the world it is certainly a lifetimes opportunity to climb it. Climbing Everest from the Tibet side is relatively easier and less costly than climbing from the Nepal side. Still, Everest expeditions encounter many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion.
We strive hard to conduct the best expedition program placing the highest importance on the safety aspects of the climb. After your arrival in Kathmandu Airport, you will be greeted by a staff member from All Trekkers Team. The staff member will then transfer you to your hotel. After that, All Trekkers Team will start the process for your Tibetan visa and other necessary documents for the Everest Expedition. After 3 days, we drive to the Friend Ship Bridge at the Nepal-Tibet border. We take the time to acclimatize with one night at Zhangmu (2300m) and two nights at Nylam (3750m). Then we drive to Tingri (4350m) where we spend a further two nights for acclimatization. Then we drive to Everest Base Camp (5200m) also called the Chinese Base Camp.
