Mount Everest expedition begins after your arrival in Kathmandu. Our team member will welcome you at Kathmandu airport and transfer you to the Hotel. Next day we will have a meeting at Friendship World Trek and Expeditions (P) Ltd. at Boudha. We will meet our expedition crews and discuss about the expedition and check required expedition equipments for safety purpose. As Friendship World Trek and Expeditions team is working as sale agent of Tibet Mountaineering Association, we will have all expedition permits and required documents in our hand. We will just collect passport from all climbers and make Tibet visa on the same day. Being the good relationship with TMA we can solve any problem aroused during the trek or expedition.
According to the expedition program team will drive to Zangmu via Aranico highway and Friendship Bridge. At the friendship bridge staff from Tibet Mountaineering Association will be waiting for our expedition group. Expedition team members will drive on 4WD land cruiser and expedition equipments will be carried by truck. After driving 5 days (1 night in Zangmu, 2 Nights in Nylam and 2 Nights in Tingri) we will reach Everest Base camp. Chinese call it Chinese Base Camp. Everest base camp is situated at altitude of 5200 m. We will set camp here for 2 or 3 (depends on the expedition team health) days to acclimatize and check expedition equipments once more. After, we will walk for 2 days to reach Everest advance base camp. It is situated at altitude of (6400m) which is on the moraine below the North Col. Mount Everest Expedition climbing starts from this point.
Camp 1 (7010m) established on the North Col and is probably the most important camp and Offers the springboard for the remainder of the ascent.
Camp 2 (7800m) high on the North Ridge, often a wild and windy place but one that offers superb views. The climb is a straight forward snow slope. We advise members to start using oxygen from here in order to save their strength for the task ahead.
Camp 3 (8200m) established below the first step and the start of the technical difficulties. The ascent is over slightly steeper more broken ground. The final summit push will be made from this camp, the highest in the world.
