“Everest Expedition in Nepal”, is not just a travel package but an enterprise that incorporates the feeling, the passion, and continuous efforts of thousands of climbers every year, a lifetime experience that changes your life forever, an attempt to stand on the top of the world, an overwhelming journey to the land of Himalayas.
Residing in the Mahalangur Range of the Himalayas, standing tall at the height of 8848.86m, boasting the title of the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest in the Eastern Part of Nepal is a top choice among travel destinations in the world.Besides Mt. Everest/Sagarmatha/Chomolungma itself, there are other beautiful mountain ranges in the periphery like Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Nuptse, Lobuche East to name but a few. One may opt for peak climbing, Trekking, Expeditions, or a customized trip by combining any of these adventurous activities in the Everest Region. The Glacial Lakes and Icefalls are breathtaking as well as spine chilling that one cannot resist but behold.
The other major attraction of the area is Sagarmatha National Park, one of the World Heritage Sites, which is the home to a number of floras and faunas dominant to the Himalayan Region. It houses some endangered species like Red Pandas, Musk Deers, Snow Leopards, and many more.
Best Season for Everest Expedition:
The best season to go on the expedition to Everest is between April 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 overall journey gets even more beautiful during these months.
Risks associated with Everest Expedition:
Every reward comes with certain risks. And when it's Everest Expedition, where the climbers have to traverse the Death Zone, zone above 8000m, risks are sure to be associated. While risks like altitude sickness can be handled by proper acclimatization, other severe risks like heavy snowfall, rains, and storms, avalanches can be avoided. Natural disasters are out of human's control.
The other emerging issue with expeditions is the traffic jam that takes place in the “Death Zone” which requires climbers to wait until they get their turn to the summit. This can be well managed and minimize the risk.
(NOTE: We use constant climate monitoring to grasp the best time for a summit.)
Preparing for Everest Expedition:
- 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.
- 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
