Mt. Everest

65 Days

Climbing Mt. Everest stands as an unparalleled achievement, witnessing around 1000 summit attempts annually from both the southern Nepalese side and the northern Tibetan side. Since Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary’s historic ascent in 1953 via the South Col, Everest has been a focal point for climbers. The closure of Tibet’s borders after the Cultural Revolution redirected expeditions to the popular southern approach through Nepal’s Khumbu Valley.

While the allure of conquering the world’s highest peak is undeniable, Everest poses significant challenges, including high altitudes, harsh weather, and physical exhaustion. Our expedition programs prioritize safety, recognizing the inherent obstacles climbers encounter. Despite being Earth’s loftiest mountains, the Himalayas, including Everest, are geologically younger than counterparts like the Andes and Alps. Everest’s allure dates back to the 1920s when George Mallory expressed his fascination during a U.S. lecture tour with the famous retort, “Because it is there.” While Mallory and Irvine vanished in 1924, modern climbers benefit from meticulous planning, experienced staff, and a collective commitment to realizing lifelong dreams with enthusiasm, patience, and perseverance.

Day 02-03: At leisure in Kathmandu

The day before the Everest Expedition involves a mix of sightseeing and crucial preparations in Kathmandu. While the expedition leader attends a formal briefing at the Ministry of Tourism, participants explore the city and visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Swayambhu, and Boudhnath. The day includes finalizing official procedures, a comprehensive briefing on the expedition’s nature, required equipment, and team composition. Participants have the opportunity for last-minute personal item purchases before flying to the Himalayas the next day. In the late afternoon, the leader checks everyone’s equipment, providing the last chance to acquire any missing items. It’s also a time for introductions among expedition members and guides, ensuring a well-prepared start to the Everest adventure.

Day 04: Fly to Lukla & Trek to Phakding – 2,840m/9,315ft

Embarking on the Everest Expedition, the journey begins with an early morning scenic flight to Lukla. Renowned as one of the most beautiful air routes globally, the mountain flight concludes with a dramatic landing on a hillside surrounded by towering mountain peaks. In Lukla, the expedition team meets the camp staff and porters. Following introductions and necessary arrangements, the trek commences through the prosperous village of Lukla, leading to the destination of Phakding. Positioned along the main trade route, Phakding offers clean and well-built lodges for an overnight stay, marking the initial steps of the Everest adventure.

Day 05: Trek to Namche Bazar

Continuing the ascent, we follow the banks of the Dudh Kosi, crossing it twice via small suspension bridges. The journey leads to the village of Monjo, marking our entry into the Khumbu National Park. Crossing the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Bhote Kosi on a high suspension bridge, we undertake a steep climb for approximately two hours to reach Namche Bazaar. As the prosperous trading town and capital of the Khumbu region, Namche Bazaar boasts genuine Tibetan artifacts, providing a vibrant cultural experience amidst the Himalayan landscape.

Day 06: At leisure in Namche Bazar

Taking a crucial rest day in Namche Bazaar, we focus on acclimatizing to the altitude of 3,450m (11,300ft). While it’s a leisure day, maintaining activity is recommended for acclimatization. Options include a day hike to Thame, a visit to Khunde, or simply exploring and relaxing in Namche Bazaar itself. As the central hub of the Everest (Khumbu) region, Namche Bazaar offers amenities like government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery, and a vibrant market on Friday evenings and Saturdays. Our guides ensure a gradual ascent, taking us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the Sagarmatha National Park headquarters, providing insights into Everest’s first ascenders, Sherpa culture, and the region’s diverse plant and animal life.

Day 07: Trek to Thyangboche

The familiar Everest trail winds its way around the valley’s side high above the Dudh Kosi. Following this path, one can relish the first truly spectacular views of the magnificent peaks of the Khumbu, including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam. The journey involves passing through several villages and numerous tea shops, crossing the Dudh Kosi River, and embarking on a steep ascent to Thyangboche. Thyangboche is home to an impressive and recently reconstructed monastery, adding a cultural dimension to the breathtaking mountain vistas along the route.

Day 08: Trek to Dingboche

Continuing our journey, we traverse several Chortens, Mani walls, and small villages. During lunch, we are treated to fantastic close-up views of Ama-Dablam. Shaded by rhododendron trees, the path descends gradually to the river, leading to another airy suspension bridge. An hour’s walk from here takes us to Pangboche, providing an excellent viewpoint for Ama Dablam. Contouring up the valley side, we once again cross the river and ascend the Imja valley to reach the picturesque farming village of Dingboche.

Day 09-13: Acclimatization

Dingboche marks a crucial phase of the expedition, offering an ideal location for acclimatization. The team leader strategically organizes daily outings to the adjacent hills, aiming for gradual acclimatization. These outings involve walking on nearby hills to incrementally increase exposure to altitude. Participants are encouraged to follow the acclimatization regimen that suits them best, ensuring maximum adjustment before reaching base camp.

During the stay in Dingboche, there’s an opportunity to attend a seminar on high-altitude acclimatization at a hospital run by the Himalayan Rescue Association in nearby Pheriche. The trek to Pheriche and back serves as effective acclimatization training, contributing to the team’s readiness for higher altitudes.

Day 14: Trek to Lobuje

Retracing our steps to Pheriche, we then continue ascending the trail towards base camp. Upon reaching Dugla, situated below the snout of the Khumbu Glacier, we pause for a convenient lunch. Post-lunch, the trail takes a steep ascent alongside the glacier moraine. After a couple of hours, the track leads us to a small cluster of tea houses, pleasantly situated at Lobuche. This serves as a strategic point in our journey towards the Everest base camp.

Day 15: Trek to Everest Base Camp

Contouring along the valley-side and gazing down on the Khumbu Glacier, we follow a well-defined trail to Gorak Shep. Once the base camp site in 1953, Gorak Shep now comprises a few small tea houses. Departing from Gorak Shep, the trail proceeds onto the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier, becoming less distinct as it weaves between mounds of rubble. Eventually, it leads us to the Everest base camp, situated near the foot of the Khumbu Icefall. This will be our home for the next six weeks, serving as the central hub for the Everest Expedition.

Day 16-18: Rest and preparation

Day 19-64: Ascent of Mt Everest

Day 65: Withdraw to Base Camp

All team members regroup at the base camp and actively participate in packing expedition stores and cleaning the base camp area. This collaborative effort ensures a systematic and organized conclusion to the Everest Expedition, as the team prepares to depart from the base camp.

Day 66-68: Return trek to Namche Bazaar via Dingboche and Thyangboche

Day 69: Trek to Lukla

Day 70: Fly Lukla to Kathmandu

After completing the Everest Expedition, we will return to the welcoming haven of the hotel in Kathmandu. To commemorate the success of the expedition and express gratitude to the Sherpas for their unwavering support and friendship, BG Travel will host an evening barbecue. This farewell party serves as a joyful celebration and a gesture of appreciation for the collective efforts and camaraderie throughout the challenging expedition.
