Mt. Everest, the highest and most famous mountain in the world is not just a mountain but a living Goddess for many people and cultures. This mountain has been attracting every year dozens of mountaineering expeditions, climbers and trekkers to its base camps and slopes. Despite the extreme risks and difficulties, the mountain always inspires and motivates adventurous people to get on its grand summit.
Mt. Everest has two main climbing routes, the southeast ridge from Nepal and the northeast ridge from Tibet, as well as many others less frequently climbed routes. On this expedition, we make an attempt to get on this grand mountain’s summit through the northeast route which was discovered by George Mallory on the first expedition in 1921. The North - East Route begins from the north side of Everest in Tibet setting base camp at Rongbuk Glacier at 5,180m (16,990 ft) on a gravel plain. A Buddhist monastery stands at the foot of the Rongbuk Glacier, beneath Everest's spectacular north face. The monastery is one of two whose locations were selected specifically to allow religious contemplation of the great peak.
Climbers ascend the medial moraine of the east Rongbuk Glacier up to the base of Changtse at around 6,100m (20,000 ft) to reach Camp II and Camp III (Advanced Base Camp) is situated below the North Col at 6,500 m (21,300 ft). To reach Camp IV on the north Col, climbers ascend the glacier at the foot of the Col where fixed ropes are needed to fix to reach the North Col at 7,010 m (23,000 ft). From the North Col, climbers ascend the rocky north ridge to set up Camp V at around 7,775 m (25,500 ft). The route crosses the North Face in a diagonal climb to the base of the Yellow Band reaching the site of Camp VI at 8,230 m (27,000 ft). From Camp VI, climbers make their final climb to the summit of this highest mountain on the world proving themselves one of the most adventurous people.
Competent alpine climbing technique and experience climbing on mixed terrain with heavy packs along with good basic mountain climbing skills are a must to climb this mountain.
