Mt. Everest Expedition is the highest peak in the world. It is situated in Nepal’s topographically and ethnically diverse country at а height of 8848 meters. Mt. Everest receives about 1000 climbers per year; while a highly adventurous yet probably fatal climb, reaching the summit of this majestic peak is a feat. Since it had been a successful ascent in 1953, many successful and unsuccessful attempts have since been carried out to reach the top of the world. But proper acclimatization, good physique, sheer determination, and mental alertness are the basic requirements of the Mount Everest expedition.

Of the two routes, the route via Nepal is best for climbing Everest. This trek starts with а flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, followed by a hike into Namche Bazaar, the destination for all supplies for the tour. Then, the trails move towards Everest Base Camp with proper acclimatization. Finally, the path goes by a trek along the Khumbu Glacier to the Everest Base Camp near the Khumbu Icefall, while Everest Base Camp is at a height of 5364 meters. Even though enough time for proper acclimatization requires avoiding altitude sickness.

After crossing crevasses and large chunks of ice, reach an altitude of 6400 meters at camp I, whereas camp 2nd is set up at the foot of the Lhotse Wall. Similarly, Camp 3rd is at an altitude of 7100 m and requires climbing over the Lhotse wall. Oxygen needs basically over the 3rd camp to the height of Camp 4th at 8400 m and above. Since it passes through the southeast ridge, a careful ascends upwards to reach the summit. The top of the peak offers spectacular views of other mountain ranges and landmarks, looking small. However, reaching the top of Everest might have fatal consequences, so know how to climb and take special precautions.

Dingboche retains its beautiful fields and pasture in Imja Valley. It is an important stage of the expedition. Dingboche is a good location for acclimatization. The team leader will organize daily outings to the adjacent hills to provide gradual acclimatization. Walk some of the nearby hills to increase exposure to altitude slowly. Follow the regime you previously found most suitable to give you maximum acclimatization before arriving in base camp.

The walk over to Pheriche and back will also serve as good acclimatization training.
