Mt. Everest Expedition
Sir Edmund Hillary and late Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers under Sir John Hunt's expedition team to reach the summit of Mt. Everest together in May 29,1953 by the south Col route. This route is technically straight forward and risk involving.
The World's highest mountain, Mt. Everest (8848m) is known by the name of Sagarmatha in Nepal and Chomolungma in China.
Everest base camp is situated on the Khumbu glacier at the height of 5455m.Normally, the climbing duration of the expedition lasts for 3 months. After crossing the Base camp you can climb for camp 1.
Camp 1(6400m): It is located at the flat area of endless snow-deep crevasses and mountain ridge. During the daytime this place is warm due to direct sun's reflection. At night we hear the murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath your tent. From here we have to walk camp 2.
Camp 2 (6750m): This camp is located at the foot of the icy Lhotse wall through which we have to walk ahead amidst the violent, raging winds and sometimes cloudy weather.
Camp 3 (7100m): This camp is adjoined to Lhotse wall. After climbing the Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and prior acclimatization we proceed to camp 4.
Camp 4 (8400m): This is the last camp of the Everest Expedition. From here summit is 500m, distance far. It is the final and dangerous part of the climbing. Here, the wind blows violently. The normal route to reach the summit is through the narrow south - east ridge and it precedes the south summit 8700m.
