It is a thriving commercial city and the capital of the Khumbu region with real Tibetan artifacts.

Day 06:Acclimatization time at Namche Bazar.

Today, you will spend a day at Namche and allow your body to acclimatize to an altitude of 3450 m. Although this is a day of leisure, it is essential not to be inactive. Health experts always recommend staying active and moving during the rest day, rather than being inactive so you will spend the day taking a day hike in Thame or visiting Khunde and exploring the Namche bazaar itself. Namche Bazzar is the heart of the Everest region. It has government offices, ATMs, shops, restaurants, internet cafes, a bakery, and a colorful market every Friday night and Saturday. If you walk a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help you to acclimatize properly.

Sketch the side of the valley, cross the river and climb the Imja Valley to preserve the picturesque agricultural town of Dingboche.

 

Day 09-13:Acclimatization in Dingboche

It is a crucial phase of the expedition. Dingboche is a good place to acclimatize. Our team leader will arrange daily trips to adjacent hills to ensure gradual acclimatization. Walk up some of the nearby hills to slowly increase the altitude. Eat the diet that appears best to acclimatize you before you reach base camp. During your stay in Dingboche, you can attend a high-altitude acclimatization seminar at a Himalayan Rescue Association hospital near Pheriche.

They have scaled the mountain several times with the support of other crew members and all the logistics necessary for the journey. Not only in terms of qualification, but we also make sure that our leaders have a proven track record in climbing high altitude mountains. The number of guides is chosen according to the size of the team to maximize each climber’s chances of reaching the summit without compromising the safety aspect. Our expedition leaders are also equipped with expertise in managing altitude-related problems, including symptoms of acute mountain sickness (AMS). Crew members are adept at setting up tents and camps, melting snow on the road, cooking, and other daily necessities.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance for any itinerary of our Company is a condition for booking vacations. At a minimum, you must have emergency medical and repatriation insurance, which must include the cost of the mountain rescue. Please carefully review the Terms and Conditions of your insurers; in particular, you should ensure that the following are covered: 1) Activity (i.e., tourism, trekking or mountaineering) 2) Maximum altitude reached on the trek 3) Evacuation by helicopter in case of emergency. You should understand that ultimately, the responsibility for any expenses incurred in the evacuation and repatriation procedures will be borne by you and that it is your responsibility to pay the costs incurred concerning any evacuation or medical treatment. You should be fully aware of the implications of organizing your travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that in certain circumstances, our Company Guide can initiate helicopter rescue procedures (or any other necessary means) in medical emergencies without first contacting your insurance company for approval.

Trekking day

Trekking days also help the body react and acclimatize to the high altitude environment. It is always advisable to go slowly, at first, stopping in villages higher and higher in the range. You will walk a few miles and then rested at night, leaving the body to reconfigure into thinner air. In the remote countryside, early bedtime and early wakeup times are most appropriate. A typical trekking day begins around 6 or 7 a.m. enjoy the sumptuous breakfast and start the walk. Bring your bag with the personal items you need for the day. Walk at your own pace, enjoy the scenery, chat with the locals, and take photos. Usually stops for lunch after about 3 hours of walking. Lunchtime also helps with acclimatization. The goal would be to get to the next stop at sunset. After arriving at the nightspot, the crew members secure the tents. You can relax with a cup of tea or coffee or take a nice walk around the campsite. Dinner would be ready around 7 p.m. Enjoy dinner while sharing the day’s experience with team members.

Climbing day

The climbing route may vary depending on the climber’s personal experience. A day of climbing involves regular climbing for 3-4 hours in the morning. After lunch, relaxation, there is a 2-3 hour climb in the afternoon. However, the flexibility of the climbing route is necessary as people climb at their own pace and respond individually to the stress of climbing. We ensure that the proportion of Sherpa climbers and guides is focused on high-security measures so that each climber can progress at their own pace.

Weather

Spring from March to May is considered favorable weather for climbing Everest. However, Everest’s weather conditions are never entirely predictable. Temperatures can drop to minus 20 ° C in summer, but they can drop to minus 60 ° C or even lower in winter. The possibility of bad weather, such as snow, wind, and clouds, should also be considered. Also, wind speed can reach 80 km / h (50 mph). The temperature at the base camp is around 15 ° C warmer than at the top. The oxygen level around 7,000m is only 40% of what is at sea level.

Physical condition and experience requirements

Although Everest is not as technical as K2 or Kanchenjunga, it is not very easy to climb Everest even for experienced mountaineers. It is also true that returning from the top is more important than getting there. There is real objective danger and misjudgment involved with every expedition to Everest. The oxygen level of more than 7,000 m is only 40% of what is at sea level. The weather is never wholly predictable. Climbers must have years of rock and ice climbing experience, especially above 7,000m. You should also feel safe and comfortable climbing or descending fixed ropes along steep technical terrain. Also, as Jon Krakauer says, while you’re on the Thin Air up there, “The consequences of a loose knot, a trip, a dislodged rock, or other reckless act are likely to be felt by the author’s colleagues more than the assailant. Their actions affect not only yours but also the well-being of the entire team.

Climbing plan

Base camp: 5,200 m

Mount Everest base camp at 5200 m in an ice field is higher than most of the highest peaks in the Alps and Andes. You need to spend enough time at base camp to allow your body to acclimatize at high altitudes. You should feel comfortable before leaving the base camp. You can climb a smaller peak, Kala Patthar, which overlooks Mount Pumori and Everest’s austere black pyramid.

Climb from Base Camp to Camp 1: 6,400m

After base camp, you cross crevices, seracs, and black ice. Similarly, you face large chunks of ice as you climb. Sherpas repair the Khumbu Icefall with ropes and ladders. Use fixed ropes and aluminum ladders to climb Camp One at 6400m. Camp 1 is located on top of the icefall in a flat area of ​​snow. Camp 1 also acts as an interim storage facility until Camp 2 is built at 21,000 feet in the Western Cwm.

Climb from Camp 1 to camp 2:

Camp 2 is at the foot of the frozen Mont Lhotse wall. The weather is lovely here, especially except the clouds coming from the lowest beach. There may also be a strong wind. Camp II will be the base during camp three and camp four placements. Camp 2 will, therefore, consist of large tents for cooking and meals and several small tents for sleeping.

Climb from Camp 2 to Camp 3: 7,100m,

Camp 3 is located at the height of 22,300 feet, next to the wall of Mount Lhotse. Climb up the Lhotse wall with a fixed rope and lead to camp 4. Climb steeply over the rotting limestone. Cross the short path of snowfields heading east before completing the southern plain pass. Keep the oxygen supply within easy reach.

Climbing from Camp 3 to Camp 4: 8,400 m

Oxygen will be used over Camp 3. Beyond Camp 3, there may be drawbacks due to thinning air that requires the use of oxygen. Climbers must pass through the steep strips. Cross a short field of snow; the route takes the Geneva to spur east before finishing the apartments of the south pass. Camp 4, at an altitude of 8,400 m, is the last camp of the expedition.

Climbing from Camp 4 on top (Summit)

Climbing from camp 4 to the top is the final and dangerous part of the climb, but it is the most important day. The summit is about 500 m from Camp 4. The usual best way to reach the summit is through the narrow southeast ridge.

    A successful climb of Mount Everest

    Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. made a great and successful Everest climbing tour. Many thanks to the entire team for organizing an excellent operation. Climbing Mount Everest was our dream for years and the dream finally came true. Before climbing Everest, we climbed many small trekking peaks such as Island Peak, Mera Peak, and Lobuche Peak in Nepal for skills and experience. Our climbing guide Pema Sherpa is a really brave climber with a lot of experience in mountaineering. He did very hard work for our trip. We faced many obstacles and difficulties while climbing: our guide was always optimistic. Pema and the whole team made a decisive contribution to the success of our trip.
