Everest Expedition

   55 Days    Trip Id ( 001-A-137)

Mount Everest Expedition (8848.86m), the mountain that sets the yardstick for climbing achievement, lies on the border between Nepal and Tibet. The height at which a successful climber can brag, also assures life’s most rewarding experience. For this reason, the mountain attracts mountaineers from all over the world, and as a result, receives around 500 summit attempts every year.

The first successful attempt, however, was made on May 29, 1953, by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary. It is the most popular expedition, not just in the Everest region of Nepal, but around the world.

Who does not dream of standing at the highest point on earth?

Mount Everest Expedition (Everest Climbing) is the ultimate mountaineering adventure that allows adventure enthusiasts to conquer the summit. Nevertheless, adventure and experience, also present you with one of the greatest physical and mental challenges, as Everest lives up to its fearful reputation if the conditions become unsympathetic to you. Therefore, it’s best not to underestimate the altitude and the technical difficulty.

The Expedition: Mt. Everest can be climbed from the south via the Khumbu Valley in Nepal, as well as from the north via Tibet. Amigo Treks and Expedition offers guided expeditions via the South Col. As per the itinerary, 55 days are required to complete the expedition, out of which 38 days are set aside to climb the mountain. 9 days are required to trek up to the Everest Base Camp (including 2 acclimatization days). 4 high camps are set above the base camp.

Everest Expedition Route:

The Everest Base Camp is a renowned location that sits at an elevation of 5364 meters above sea level. The area offers stable conditions during the climbing period, with tents and stages often moving due to the ice melting and shifting. Various peaks, including Pumori, Nuptse, Lola, Nutse, and the Khumbu Icefall surround the base camp. While mornings are usually pleasant, unexpected snowstorms can occur at night. With numerous adventure groups present at the base camp, it feels like a small Himalayan village.

The journey to Camp 1 is the most technical part of a southside climb as it involves crossing the treacherous Khumbu Icefall. The icefall features deep crevasses, towering ice seracs, and fast-flowing streams. To acclimatize, climbers typically spend only two nights at Camp 1 before moving on to Camp 2. Camp 2 is situated on a lateral moraine on the western edge and offers breathtaking views of Lhotse. It serves as the primary climbing camp for most groups during the climbing season and is also an important acclimatization camp.

Climbing the steep Lhotse Face to reach Camp 3 can be quite challenging, as most climbers are not yet using supplemental oxygen at this point. While the path is rope-assisted, the ice is rough, and the angles range from 30 to 45 degrees. Nevertheless, it's a necessary climb for acclimatization before attempting the peak. Climbers typically stay at Camp 3 for two nights for further acclimatization and the summit push.

Camp 4, also known as South Col, sits at an elevation of 26,300 feet and is the final camp before the summit push. The area is known for its rocky terrain, with both Everest and Lhotse being covered in loose rock. Most climbers can reach Camp 4 without supplemental oxygen, although there are two rock sections to negotiate before getting there: the Yellow Band and the Geneva Spur.

The final push to the summit, which takes between 9 and 13 hours to complete, involves traversing the Balcony, the Hillary Step, and the South Summit before reaching the central panel. The last part of the climb is a moderate snow slope, and while most climbers are fatigued, the adrenaline keeps them going. After reaching the summit, climbers descend along the same route they took to get there.

Amigo Treks and Expedition’s planning, logistics, staffing, and experience, will help you achieve your lifetime dream, as the company offers fully inclusive support up to the summit. The supports include experienced mountaineers, guides, and crew members with extensive knowledge of wilderness medical training; permanent base camp, excellent expedition cook and manager, full board meal and accommodation, solar electricity, internet facility, satellite phone, professional and reliable weather forecast service for the expedition and other required logistics necessary for a successful expedition.

Moreover, this expedition also presents the best cultural trek opportunity into the scenic Sherpa heartland of the Khumbu Valley. April-May is considered the best season to plan this expedition as most of climber starts their expedition in the first week of April. Our support combined with your enthusiasm, patience, and perseverance will help you achieve your lifetime dream. However, suppose you aren’t ready to attempt the Everest Expedition yet. In that case, Amigo Treks and Expedition offer other best expedition options like Pumori Expedition, Annapurna Expedition, Amadablam Expedition, or even Dhaulagiri Expedition.

Personal Climbing Equipments

Amigo Treks and Expedition has compiled a list of essential equipment, personal medical provisions, and summary of medical conditions likely to encounter during 8000m mountaineering expeditions to help mountaineers in preparation and provisioning for climbing or mountaineering expedition.

This list should be considered as an essential summary and expeditioners embarking on the adventure are encouraged to conduct further study and practical exercises to familiarize themselves with the equipment, medical terminology and understanding of medical conditions related to high elevation, cold, wind, excessive sun radiation as well as injuries likely to sustain in the outdoor situation and in particular high and remote mountainous areas.

Essential Personal Climbing Gear:

  • Alpine Climbing Harness: Alpine Climbing Harness should be light and simple in design, easy to put on and take off with gloves on, with positively foolproof locking features.

Personal Food

Our skilful cooks will prepare 3 delicious hot meals and plenty of drinks each day in base camp, as well as in camp 2 on the mountain. This meals will consist of soup, local cheese & sausage, biscuits, dried noodles, potatoes, rice, porridge, butter, dried and tinned vegetables, fruit, meats, and fish, tea with milk and sugar, powdered juice drink, and drinking chocolate. Our Sherpas will be carrying this food to the higher camps.

We ask only members to bring 5 dehydrated meals (freeze-dried dinners) for their summit attempt. On summit day you will be at high elevation and you will be affected by the altitude with very limited appetite and for period so it is important to have flavours you most likely will consume.

We cannot cater for specific personal and uncommon foods and flavours. If you have any unusual, non-standard or specific personal, cultural or religious dietary requirements, which can only be satisfied with imported product, we ask you to bring your own imported daily snack and energy foods.

We do not provide “snack” food such as chocolate or "energy-bars". We ask that you bring or buy your own "snack" or daily cold energy food in Kathmandu or in home country. From our experience 3-6 kilos/6-12 pounds is a sufficient amount. A growing variety of imported foods such as European and American cheeses, chocolates, biscuits, cookies, nuts, and locally made power-bars are now available in Kathmandu, at realistic prices. However, imported brands of power bars, GU, re-hydration drinks, dehydrated food, "freeze-dried meals", imported cheese and sausage may not be available. If you want these items, you must bring them from your home country. Many of our members, especially Britons, Europeans, and Australians with tiny baggage allowances, now purchase their daily snacks in Kathmandu. Our schedule in Kathmandu allows sufficient time for shopping.

Miscellaneous Practical Items:

  • 1 small roll of repair tape, 1 sewing repair kit;
  • 1 cigarette lighter, 1 small box matches;

  • Credit cards, Bank/ATM/Cash machine cards for use for withdrawing funds from cash machines (bring a photocopy of your cards), traveler's checks, etc.
  • 1 bathing suit/swimming costume (you never know);
  • Base camp entertainment. It is good to bring additional items which you have found to be useful on previous expeditions. For example: paperback books, playing cards, ipod mp3 player, short-wave radio, game boys, musical instruments, ear plugs, lots of batteries, etc.;
  • travel clothes for base camp and in town;
  • Please be sure and bring your patience and try to keep an open, relaxed, positive and friendly attitude as travelling in this part of the world may be very different than what you are used to, but things always seem to fall into place at the last moment.
  • Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Please submit other equipment concerns and suggestions.


On Everest, although some climbers wish to try to summit it without supplemental oxygen, most of members would prefer to have oxygen available. We only allow members to climb Everest with the supplemental oxygen available. How much oxygen one requires is an individual decision; some people want 1 bottle, others want 12; our only requirement is that every expedition team member must have at least one oxygen bottle available for personal use, which will constitute at the minimum an emergency supply for climber to get down to at least camp 4. Our experience indicates five oxygen bottles is usually a sufficient for average climber. All of the equipment is guaranteed to work well together, and it is easy to use, with simple threaded and snap-on fittings which require no tools. We have a 40% buy back policy on unused oxygen bottles, and masks, hoses, and regulators in good condition.

Note: You may have to carry some or all of your own oxygen on summit day, as well as up and down the mountain. If possible, the groups sherpas will help stock the high camps, as well as share in carrying extra bottles during summit attempts. If you are concerned you might not be able to carry your own oxygen, you may wish to hire a personal sherpa.
