Mt. Everest North Expedition from Tibet side has become more popular among the mountaineers to make their dream come true to stand on the summit of Mt. Everest (Chomolungma, Goddess Mother of the World). Among the several reasons, low cost of royalty and other basic mountaineering services as well as the easy route to the summit are the key factors to attract more Everest climbers from North Col. than from the South Col of Nepal. There are no easy routes on Everest but we try to put the odds on our side. We take the North Ridge because we consider it to be the safest. Technically, it is more challenging than the South Side but does not have the ice fall danger. Our Advanced Base Camp (6,400 m.) is right under the shadow of Changtse and has a view of virtually the whole route. From here we use four more camps, a formula that has brought us considerable success in the past.

 

Our trip starts from Kathmandu and flight in to Lhasa. We will have 2/3 days sightseeing around Lhasa then three day drive taken us to the Everest Chinese Base Camp at 5,400m. and from there it is 22 km to the ABC at 6400m by yaks. We put an intermediate camp on the glacier about half way between Base Camp and ABC, so this trip takes two days. From the ABC the route continues up the East Rongbuk glacier to the north of the glacier and then up easy snow slopes to the North Col at 7,000m.
