It’s a climbing strategy that adapts to the climber’s current condition. So, we don’t plan a daily itinerary for the climbing duration because the Sherpa and members will decide. Before moving above the base camp, the crew will normally spend a few days arranging food, practicing rope skills, and acclimating. Normally, the summit pushes out at midnight so that, that team reached the summit in the early morning. After soaking in the spectacular sunrise and surrounding views, return to base camp before falling to the heat. Finally, we wish you the best of luck in reaching the top.
