Duration: 12 Days
Ascending to the mighty and the biggest mountain Everest is one of the best lifetime opportunity as it is bit challenging as it is at the height of 8,848 meters and 29,029 ft. This expedition from the north ridge of Tibet is quite easy and the cost is also much cheaper than from the Nepal as in the Tibet they called the Everest as Qomolangma and they worshipped this mountain. There are two ways to summit to this highest mountain Everest one is from the south eastern part of Nepal and the other one way is from the Northside of Tibet as from the south side of Nepal it was first scaled by the well-known sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and from the north side it was first summit by the Chinese expedition in 1960 and later from the north ridge it was opened from 1920.
This expedition to the Everest from the north ridge begins from the Kathmandu sightseeing as we will be visiting two most popular landmarks of Hindus and the Buddhists one is pashupatinath where lots of Hindu devotees visit this place and it also the cremation site of Hindus and next we will be visiting the boudhanath stupa and next day we drive to the border of Nepal and Tibet through the friendship bridge and next day we will be acclimatizing at the Everest base camp and next day we will trek to the temporary camp and next day we trek to ABC (Advanced Base Camp) and next day acclimatize the altitude in ABC and there will be some rituals puja to worship the mighty mountain Everest as the mountain is the sacred mountain so before ascending we will be worshipping the Everest mountain for the successfully summit to this Everest and next day we start our climbing expedition to the Everest and from there we retrace back to ABC and to base camp and to Kathmandu.
This expedition from the north col is relatively easy comparing from the south col so one without having climbing experience can attempt this expedition with good level of physical and mentally fit.
