Climatic Conditions and Risks in Everest Region
It is a well-known fact that the Everest Region lies 8848.86 m above sea level, where the air is thin with very low levels of oxygen that can result in serious altitude sicknesses. The temperatures are at extremes, recorded as low as -62 degrees Celsius making it impossible to live in the lower region, let alone climb the summit. The winds blow at the speed of 285km/hr can influence the movement of snow and ice that can result in huge avalanches. The Himalayas have the 3rd highest concentration of ice on the whole planet making it extremely cold that no vegetation survives in the winter season even in the lower parts. So, it is very necessary to be prepared for the extreme conditions while on this expedition to Mt. Everest. But, our superb team of Sherpas will make your Expedition to Everest a luxurious one.
- Best Season for Everest Expedition
The best season to go on the expedition to Everest is between March to May when winds are calmer, the days are sunny, temperatures are mild and the trail is gorgeous with green dense forests, raging rivers and streams, the soothing sounds of the birds and animals and the uninterrupted views of the grand massifs throughout the trail. The lakes are shining with crystal clear water while the glacial lakes shine in turquoise. The overall journey gets even more beautiful during these months.
- Preparation and Training for Everest Expedition
While Everest Expedition is a strenuous journey, it does involve risks but proper preparation and training will be very handy. The 8K Expedition team makes sure that every climber knows and understands the elements of the expedition by briefing them thoroughly and helping them get acquainted with all essential gears and equipment including but not limited to crampons, ice axes, bottled oxygen, fixed lines, and others. You must also keep in mind the following tips:
- The expedition is tough but highly rewarding as well. So, prepare yourself psychologically and physically to withstand all possible hazards that may come across your path during the journey. Mental stability and confidence play a huge role in boosting you up even at the worst phase. Your communication will be crucial during these times. So, always talk to each other, say how you are feeling and ask the same to others.
- The expedition is challenging but worthy. We will train you very well to be in the Himalayas by providing you with all technical know-how and techniques. We will have enough time at the Base Camp to let you prepare yourself before the ascent.
- The summit lies at a higher altitude and can cause altitude sickness but proper acclimatization and enough oxygen will help you go through. We will always have extra bottles of oxygen in case of emergencies. This is why one must go on an expedition to any of the 7 thousand before heading to Everest. This will not only help you gain experience in the high altitude but also familiarize you with all the gears and equipment while handling extremely cold temperatures, gaining great cramponing skills on and off the rock, snow, ice, rappelling with a pack on, and using ascenders and jumars on a fixed-line. Along with tolerance at a high altitude, you need strength, endurance, and strong cardiovascular conditioning.
NOTE: Prioritize your training efforts with the following techniques assuming you are in good health and injury-free.
- Climbing Conditioning: Uphill climbing with a backpack, walking and staircase climbing
- Strength training for lower body and core
- Cardiovascular Training: Include both aerobic and anaerobic workouts with and without pack weight
- Flexibility Training: include Stretches for overall body
- On days when the climate changes more drastically than expected, we have our rescue team on standby so that we can transfer all our climbers to the safe zone.
(NOTE: With all necessary precautions and guidelines, climbers need not worry much but prepare themselves both physically and emotionally.
