Mount Everest Expedition from Tibet is the expedition package in which the highest peak of the world (8848 m) is the dream of every climber. We help to make this dream a reality. Our Mount Everest Expedition from China begins in Kathmandu: we meet at the hotel “Yak & Yeti”. Since it is possible to arrive on different flights. That’s why several transfers from the airport to the hotel can be arranged.
The first days we deal with obtaining a Tibetan visa. After preparing for departure and visiting interesting places in the capital of Nepal.
Two days later we begin our journey to Tibet: we fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa, the ancient capital of Tibet. We examine the city and after 2 days we move to Shigatse (3900m). The next day we are in the city of Shegar (Xegar, 4200m). We arrange a day of rest in Shegara to acclimatize, and the next day we move to Everest Base Camp (BC, 5200m).
The climbing period in Everest Expedition from Tibet
After 2-3 days of rest in BC, we begin, with the help of yaks, lifting equipment to the Advanced Base Camp (hereinafter referred to as ABC, 6400 m). After its opening, the expedition members go to the ABC the next day. A comfortable camp is being established here, similar to our BC.
A little later, after our Sherpas set Camp 1 on the North Col (7000m) but we will go up there and spend one night there for acclimatization. After that, we go down to BC and rest for 3-4 days. At this time, our Sherpas will set Camp 2 (7700m). We will reach Camp 1 (on the North Col) on the next exit and try to climb Camp 2.
Usually, this is difficult to do right away or due to bad weather or lack of acclimatization. In case of failure, we will descend to ABC. After a rest, we will try to reach the camp 7700m again. After we spend one night in camp 2 (7700m), we will descend to BC for a long rest.
At this time the Sherpas will establish Camp 3 (8300m). After May 15-17, climbers, as a rule, are in the ABC camp and begin to wait for a favorable period of whether to carry out a decisive assault. Practically, having risen to camp 3, one attempt can be made. It will not be possible to recover quickly and the supply of oxygen will be spent.
The advantage of this trip is that it does not start too early and that it ends after June 1st.
The end of May is usually the best time to climb in terms of weather. We return to Kathmandu on June 5-6 after finishing this trip. We place again in “Yak & Yeti”. From here, the team goes home, taking a piece of Mount Everest Expedition with them in their own heart.
