Trip facts

  •    Country: Nepal

Mount Everest is one of the popular and best climbing expedition on planet Earth. As being the highest in the world - with an elevation of 8848 meters and 29028 ft, this climbing excursion has been highly admired and many climbers dream and attempt this expedition once in a lifetime. It was successfully ascended by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa on May 29, 1953.

Mount Everest is located in Mahalangur Himal subrange of the Himalayas. It is called as Sagarmatha in Nepalese meaning “goddess of sky” and “Chomolungma” in Tibetan meaning “goddess mother of the snows”. There are two ways to venture this expedition – from the southeast side of Nepal (known as the - standard route) and northern side from Tibet.

This popular highest expedition begins from the scenic flight to Lukla from Kathmandu and a short trek to Phakding. From here we trek to the popular regions of the Everest like Namche, Thyangboche, Dingboche. Each day adapting the altitude acclimatizing through the way - we will be crossing the Sherpa village, several stupas and monasteries with beautiful landscapes, astonishing mountainous views heading to the Everest Base Camp.

And next, we trek to Lobuche, and then to Everest Base Camp and do some preparation for summiting the highest peak. Next day, we will be summiting Everest from where we get the stunning views of Mount Lhotse (8516 m), Mount Makalu (8485 m), Mount Cho Oyu ( 8201 m), Mount Ama Dablam (6812 m) and numerous snow-capped peaks from the top. From here, we retrace back to Base Camp, then head back to Namche Bazaar through Dingboche and Tyangboche, and trek to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.

For this Everest Expedition, one needs at least two months and eleven days of vacation for successfully accomplishing this with sound health as one has to be physically and psychologically fit for this task. The perfect time for this expedition would be in spring (March-May) and autumn (October-November). We Accent Himalaya don’t recommend in winter or summer for Everest Expedition due to climate issues.
