Trip Overview

Climbing to the summit of the world’s highest mountain is a lifetime dream to all the trekkers and mountaineers of the world. Everest Expedition takes the trekkers and mountaineers to the summit of the world’s highest mountain and gives the visitors an opportunity to explore the untouched and hidden gems that are found in the heart of this mighty mountain. Mt. Everest, located in the heart of the majestic Khumbu region is one of the most popular and demanding trekking destinations of the world. You will also get an opportunity to follow on the legendary trail that which was first climbed by Tenzing Norgey Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary.

Everest Expedition offers the trekkers an opportunity to do sightseeing of some of the world’s highest mountains such as Annapurna, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, Makalu, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Amadablam, Island peak, Thamaserku, Pumori and other many beautiful mountains of the world. One of the major attractions of this expedition is the opportunity to stand on the tallest mountain of the world and view the world with a bird’s view. We will also be exploring the unique cultures and lifestyles of people living in the Khumbu region since many years. Sightseeing of the rare species of animals and birds that rae found in the Khumbu region is also another major attraction of this expedition.

One should need a good physical stamina and previous climbing experience to reach to the summit of this mountain. You will also need the technical climbing experience to climb to some of the difficult paths in the trail.  We personally recommend to be mentally as well as physically prepared for the obstacles and barriers that one should face during the climb to the summit of this mountain. Chances of avalanches, heavy snowfall, ice falls, rock falling from the cliffs are common as we will be climbing above the height of 8000m. You should also be prepared for the high-altitude sickness and loss of breath as these sorts of challenges are also too common at a height of 8000m.

The journey to the summit of the world’s highest mountain starts with the sightseeing of the capital city of our country. We will visit some of the famous places of Kathmandu and then take a scenic flight to Lukla. This short flight gives you a pre-opportunity to do the sightseeing of Himalayan panorama from the aircraft. After landing on Lukla, we will begin our trek and trek via many Sherpa settlements and forests to reach the gateway of Everest, Namche Bazar. Namche Bazar, also known as the Thamel of Everest is one of the most famous places of Khumbu region as you can see numbers of luxury hotels, spas, restaurants, ATM’s and other many fascinating places. Trekking via the trail of Amadablam will take us to Tyangboche monastery which is one of the ancient monasteries of Nepal. Trekking ahead will take us to the base camp of Everest. We will do some essential techniques and practice some skills in the base camp and then start to climb to reach the summit of Everest.

South Col Route Camps:

Base camp: 17,060’/ 5200m

Everest base camp lies notice sheet at 5,200 meters from sea level, where you will spend up to 45 days. The Conditions in Everest Base Camp will stay steady during the climbing period and include stirring many tents and stages as the ice moves and melts. The territory is unforgiving yet delightful, encompassed by Pumori, Nuptse, Lola, Nutse, and the Khumbu Icefall with warm mornings and unexpected evening snow gusts. With such numerous endeavor groups at BC, it closely resembles a little town in the Himalayas.

C1: 19,357’/ 5900m

Arriving at C1 is the most specialized piece of a southside move since it crosses the Khumbu Icefall. The Icefall is 2,000′ feet of moving ice with profound chasms, transcending ice sera’s and torrential slides off Everest’s west shoulder. During the climbing period, we endeavor to go through just two evenings at Camp I for acclimation. If you have appropriate acclimatization, the game plans call you to go all over direct from camp II to security.

C2: 20,998’/ 6400m

Camp 2 lies in a sidelong moraine at the lower part of the west edge. It is a too protected and shielded area with huge perspectives on Lhotse. All organizations set-up their primary climbing camp for the climbing period’s duration here with tents for individual climbers and kitchen and dining tents. Camp II is an essential acclimatization camp and the central command for focus III. The camp where you are spending the most time after base camp.

C3: 23,294’/ 7100m

Climbing the Lhotse Face to C3 is often tricky since almost all climbers feel the effects of high altitude and are not yet using supplemental oxygen. The Lhotse Face is steep, and the ice is hard, but the route fixed with rope, and the angles can range from 30 to 45 degrees. It is a long climb to C3 but required for acclimatization before a summit bid. You will spend two nights at camp three for acclimatization and the summit push.

South Col: 26,300’/ 8000m

Welcome to the moon—the Everest to the north and Lhotse on the south covered with loose rock. Located at the South Col is the last camp; most climbers are easily accessible without supplementary oxygen. There are two rock sections to navigate before camp 4: the Yellow Band, an inter-layer of marble, phyllite, semi schist rock, and the Geneva Spur, an anvil-shaped rib of black stone. Both of these areas are set-up with fixed ropes.

Summit: 29,032′/ 8848.86m – 1 hour or less

The last section from the South Col to the summit takes 09-13 hours to navigate. There is the Balcony, the Hillary Step, and the south summit before reaching the central panel. The route to the true summit is a moderate snow slope, and while tired, adrenaline keeps most climbers moving at this point.

Equipment List

Ice Axe

ICE AXE

A general mountaineering ice axe. We recommend the following size as a general guideline to follow. When in doubt, a shorter ice axe is better than a longer axe. Heights 5’4” and under should use a 52 cm axe, 5’5” to 6’0” use a 59 cm axe, above 6’0” use a 66 cm axe. Note that wrist leashes should be removed from your axe. Check out to learn more about different ice axes.

Accessory Cord

ACCESSORY CORD

40 feet of 6mm accessory cord to be used for prussiking and other climbing rigging. If you plan to bring your own pre-tied prusiks, please contact the Gear Department ahead of time. You will need cord for more than just prusiks. Make sure the cord is soft, flexible and supple. Stiff and rigid cord will not work. To test this, hold the final 12-inch/30-cm piece of the cord in the air, with your hand below. If the cord stands up straight (stalagmite style) it will not work.

Crampons

CRAMPONS

General mountaineering crampons. We recommend modern steel 12-point crampons with anti-balling plates. Please do not bring 10-point, aluminum, or single-piece rigid crampons. If you have questions about the suitability of your crampons for your trip, call or email the Gear Department.

Carabiner System

CARABINER SYSTEM

You will want exactly the right climbing hardware for your climb. Follow this list carefully: two (2) large oval wiregate carabiners; two (2) smaller wiregate carabiners; one (1) large pear-shaped locking screwgate carabiner; one (1) large locking carabiner (can be auto-locking). If you have any questions about your carabiners, please contact the Gear Department.

Alpine Climbing Harness

ALPINE CLIMBING HARNESS

Your harness must fit over all of your clothing, feature gear loops, adjustable leg loops and waist belt, and must be able to fully separate at the legs . We strongly recommend newer models with a belay loop and which do not require “doubling back” your waist belt – older models are cumbersome.

Belay Device plus 1 Locking Carabiner

BELAY DEVICE PLUS 1 LOCKING CARABINER

Modern tube-style belay device and 1 large, pear-shaped locking carabiner. Avoid super-specialized belay devices which cannot accept a wide variety of rope diameters. We recommend models like the Black Diamond Guide ATC or Petzl Reverso.

Rappel/Belay Device

RAPPEL/BELAY DEVICE

Due to the prevalence of larger-diameter fixed lines on this climb, a figure-8 style rappel/belay device is required. Please note that devices like the Black Diamond ATC-Guide will not work well on these fixed lines.

Trekking Poles

TREKKING POLES

Collapsible skiing/trekking poles varieties are preferred.

Ascender

ASCENDER

One right or left-handed ascender (pick your dominant hand to choose which style ascender). This item must be in good condition.

FOOTWEAR

Description
 Reserve/Buy Item
High-Altitude All-in-One Boot

HIGH-ALTITUDE ALL-IN-ONE BOOT

Used instead of standard double-boot, this all-in-one integrated boot system is warm enough for use without overboots, and eliminates the need for gaiters. If using triple boots, full strap-on crampons fit better than semi-automatic or fully automatic crampons.

Camp Boots

CAMP BOOTS

Optional. Insulated, non-technical winter boots for time spent around Base Camp.

Insulated Camp Booties

INSULATED CAMP BOOTIES

Down or synthetic insulated camp booties for use inside boot shells or when sleeping in your tent.

Light Hiking Boots or Trekking Shoes

LIGHT HIKING BOOTS OR TREKKING SHOES

For any approaches across dry trail. Light weight, high comfort, plenty of room in the toe box, and good support should be stressed here. Street/city style shoes will not be allowed in place of hiking shoes.

Wool or Synthetic Socks

WOOL OR SYNTHETIC SOCKS

Four to five pairs of heavyweight socks. If using liner socks, these must be sized to fit with your liner socks. Check the fit inside your boots, and be sure to bring new socks.

Liner Socks

LINER SOCKS

Four pairs of smooth, thin non-cotton socks to be used as liner socks to be worn underneath your wool or synthetic socks.

TECHNICAL CLOTHING

Description
 Reserve/Buy Item
Baselayers Tops & Bottoms

BASE LAYERS TOPS & BOTTOMS

Two to three (2-3) each of lightweight baselayer pants, long-sleeved shirts, and short-sleeved shirts. Non-cotton fabrics only- consider merino wool blends or synthetic fibers such as polyester.

Long Sleeve Sun Shirt

LONG SLEEVE SUN SHIRT

One long-sleeved base layer top. This item must be constructed of a non-cotton material such as merino wool or polyester. Note that light-colored are strongly recommended for sun protection, and are worn by guides throughout most climbs.

Trekking Pants

TREKKING PANTS

1-2 pair of lightweight nylon trekking pants. We recommend models that are simple, made with synthetic fabrics, and offer pockets for convenience. Zip-off models are not required, but are preferred by some.

Softshell Pants

SOFTSHELL PANTS

Stretchy, comfortable, non-insulated softshell pants that should fit comfortably with or without your baselayer bottoms. Please note that “zip-off”-style trekking pants are too light to be considered softshell pants.

Hardshell Pants

HARDSHELL PANTS

Non-insulated, fully waterproof shell pants that must fit comfortably over your baselayer bottoms and softshell pants. Full-length separating size zippers are generally required; occasionally, 7/8th zippers (extending from the cuff of the pant to the upper hip) can suffice but are strongly advised against.

Softshell Jacket

SOFTSHELL JACKET

This breathable but wind-and-weather resistant jacket is a key part of a mountaineering layering system. We recommend a hooded model. This layer must fit well over your midlayer top and baselayer top. Check out to learn more.

Midlayer Top

MIDLAYER TOP

A midweight, form-fitting, lightweight fleece layer for use over baselayers. Hoods are optional but recommended. Grid fleeces generally provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio. Note that very light puffy jackets can also suffice as a midlayer.

Hardshell Jacket

HARDSHELL JACKET

A non-insulated, fully waterproof shell jacket with a hood. We recommend durable three-layer fabric. Gore-Tex Pro Shell or a similar eVent fabric will offer the most durability and long-term weather protection. This layer must fit comfortably over your baselayer, midlayer, softshell, and potentially a lightweight insulated layer. Helmet-compatible hoods are required.

Lightweight Insulated Jacket

LIGHTWEIGHT INSULATED JACKET

Your lightweight insulated jacket serves either as a layering piece or as stand-alone insulation when appropriate. This may be filled with down or synthetic insulation. Down feathers are more packable and lighter weight, while synthetic insulation will retain warmth when wet.

Insulated Down Parka

INSULATED DOWN PARKA

This jacket or parka should be heavily insulated with high-quality down fill. We recommend an overall parka weight between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds. For warmth, a hood is required. Down sweaters or light puffy jackets will not be sufficient. Check out to learn more about down fill and down weight.

Expedition Down Parka

EXPEDITION DOWN PARKA

An 8000-meter rated, expedition ready parka. This parka must be in excellent condition, fully baffled, and should be recently cleaned with Nikwax Down Wash to ensure maximum loft. We recommend calling to discuss your parka choice, as this item is key to success on any expedition.

Expedition Down Pants

EXPEDITION DOWN PANTS

In complement to the Expedition Down Parka, these heavily insulated down pants must be sized to fit over all other layers, with a waterproof outer shell fabric.

Down Suit

DOWN SUIT

This item is optional but recommended. If electing to use a down suit, separate down pants and a down parka are not required, as they are replaced by the suit.

Insulated Synthetic Pants

INSULATED SYNTHETIC PANTS

A synthetic insulated pant with full-length separating side zips. Ski pants are typically not appropriate for this layer.

HANDWEAR

Description
Reserve/Buy Item
Lightweight Liner Gloves

LIGHTWEIGHT LINER GLOVES

Very lightweight wool or synthetic liner gloves that offer a snug, comfortable fit. Lighter colors absorb less sunlight while still offering UV protection. Black or dark-color gloves are also acceptable.

Softshell Gloves

SOFTSHELL GLOVES

Midweight, lightly insulated gloves for use when mittens are too warm and liner gloves are not warm enough. Leather-palm construction is always ideal for the sake of durability.

Insulated Shell Gloves

INSULATED SHELL GLOVES

One pair of warm shell gloves with insulated removable liners. Excellent for use when conditions are too cold for softshell gloves, but too warm for expedition mittens. We recommend models with a durable leather palm.

Expedition Mittens

EXPEDITION MITTENS

Expedition-rated mittens with an insulated removable liner. Please be sure this mitten is the warmest model available by any manufacturer.

HEADWEAR

Description
 Reserve/Buy Item
Climbing Helmet

CLIMBING HELMET

A lightweight climbing-specific helmet. This must fit comfortably over your bare head, hat, and/or balaclava, and your headlamp must be able to strap securely to the outside of the helmet.

BUFF

A must-have for all outdoor activities, the UV Buff is a versatile replacement for the bandana and serves a multitude of purposes.

SUN HAT

Any style of lightweight hat for shading the head will work well. Baseball caps and sombrero-style sun hats are the most common.

Balaclava System

BALACLAVA SYSTEM

Two full balaclavas, one heavyweight and one lightweight, that will comfortably layer together.

Wool/Synthetic Ski Hat

WOOL/SYNTHETIC SKI HAT

A non-cotton wool or synthetic hat that covers the head and ears comfortably.

Facemask

FACEMASK

Breathable models are recommended; be sure your face mask is sized well to your face. Guides recommend the Outer Face glove for its breathability and anti-fogging capability. Balaclavas with built-in face masks also work well.

Glacier Glasses

GLACIER GLASSES

High-quality offering full coverage around both eyes and across the nose. Removable side-shields are not required provided eye coverage is sufficient. For individuals that wear prescription glasses we recommend reading this for tips on eyewear. For guide techniques on how to reduce glacier glasses from fogging check out this.

Ski Goggles

SKI GOGGLES

High-quality goggles for sun and wind protection at altitude. The lens should offer visible light transmission (VLT) of no more than 30%. Those with light-sensitive eyes may wish to use a darker lens. Photochromic models are ideal for use in changing conditions.

Nose Guard

NOSE GUARD

Nose guards are optional, but can be useful for those with extra-sensitive noses in lieu of constant sunscreen application. Guides strongly recommend the Outeru face glove as a nose guard.

HEADLAMP

A modern outdoor LED headlamp offering 200-300 lumens of output. Freshly installed batteries plus spare batteries. Rental headlamps do not include spare batteries. Weather-resistant models are strongly preferred. Check out to learn more.

PERSONAL EQUIPMENT

Description
 Reserve/Buy Item
-20°F Down Sleeping Bag

-20°F DOWN SLEEPING BAG

This sleeping bag should be rated to -20°F and must be down-filled rather than synthetic filled for the sake of weight and bulk. Be sure to include a correctly sized compression stuff sack. This bag will remain at basecamp and you will take your -40°F bag above basecamp.

-40°F Down Sleeping Bag

-40°F DOWN SLEEPING BAG

This sleeping bag will be used above basecamp and should be rated to -40°F. Down bags are a must, synthetic bags are overly bulky and heavy when rated below 0°F.

Foam Pad

FOAM PAD

This pad should be either 3/4 or body length. Cut pieces of closed cell foam or industrially-crafted pads are both acceptable.

Inflatable Sleeping Pad

INFLATABLE SLEEPING PAD

A full-length, modern inflatable sleeping pad is recommended. Older-style three-quarter length pads have been superseded by ultralight full-length pads. We recommend bringing a valve repair/body patch kit.

55-Liter Climbing Pack

55-LITER CLIMBING PACK

Capacity is approximate. Keep it simple, light, and climbing specific. Crampon and ice axe attachment points are a must.

WATER BOTTLES

Bring two one-liter capacity hard-sided water bottles. Wide-mouth, BPA-free plastic bottles are ideal. Nalgene brand bottles are recommended. No water bag or bladder systems (they freeze or are hard to fill) and no metal bottles (they have a tendency to freeze).

Thermos

THERMOS

A stainless steel vacuum-sealed thermos with an air tight lid and thermal cup lid. We strongly recommended bringing a thermos for those who prefer hot water to help with hydration on cold mountain days. One-liter sizes are preferred, and avoid narrow-mouthed thermoses which can be challenging to fill.

Water Bottle Parkas

WATER BOTTLE PARKAS

Bring two insulated water bottle parkas that fully cover your water bottle with closing lids. Thin “cozy” style neoprene sleeves do not provide enough insulation and are not recommended. We recommend the Forty Below Bottle Boot or the Outdoor Research Water Bottle Parka.

Mug

MUG

One insulated outdoor-style mug with a removable lid. Your mug should retain heat well and be spill resistant. Models with 12-20 oz capacity generally work best.

Knife

KNIFE

Medium-sized. Keep it simple and light.

Pee Bottle

PEE BOTTLE

Collapsible or hard-sided 1 liter Nalgene models can work well. If opting for a collapsible model, please pick a 1.5-2 liter model as it allows for more space while using in your sleeping bag. For longer expeditions and colder mountains (Everest, Vinson, Denali, etc..) we strongly recommend a hard-sided 1 liter Nalgene as the collapsible models tend to crack in extreme temperatures. Check out to learn more about pee bottles and funnels.

0.5L Nalgene Bottle (OPTIONAL)

0.5L NALGENE BOTTLE (OPTIONAL)

One 0.5L “baby” Nalgene bottle in lieu of a traditional mug is optional. This is a guide favorite for hot drinks – the leak-proof lid allows you to stick the bottle in your pocket or inside your jacket, keeping it – and you! – warmer. Bottles should be wide mouth made of co-polyester (BPA free plastic).

BOWL

One two-cup capacity packable bowl. Models with a lid (like a Tupperware) work well, as do lidless bowls and flatter “deep plate” models. Collapsible models can suffice, but must be handled very carefully to avoid unintended collapsing.

Spoon

SPOON

One durable hard plastic or anodized metal spoon. Longer spoon stems can be helpful for eating while wearing gloves.

Pee Funnel (for Women)

PEE FUNNEL (FOR WOMEN)

Optional. Practice is critical for the use of this item. Check out to learn more about pee funnels and bottles.

Trash Compactor/Contractor Bags

TRASH COMPACTOR/CONTRACTOR BAGS

Three heavy plastic garbage bags for use as waterproof pack/stuff sack liners. Trash compactor or contractor bags are made from a heavier plastic and stand up well to prolonged mountain use. Alternatively, a reusable waterproof pack liner can be used provided it completely fills the inside of your pack.

Camera

CAMERA

Optional. Small point-and-shoot cameras (including compact SLR’s) are ideal & work well at altitude. Alternatively, many opt to use a smartphone camera. Due to weight & care in the mountain environment, large dSLR cameras are discouraged.

Large Duffel Bags

LARGE DUFFEL BAGS

Three (3) large duffel bags should be used for transporting all gear to basecamp. 1-2 of those duffels will be taken straight to basecamp with all of the climbing gear and won’t be seen again until you arrive. You will also need 1 duffel for the trek to basecamp portion of the expedition. Bags with rollers or wheels are not accepted. Soft-sided, water-resistant duffels are required.

SOLAR PANEL + POWER BANK (OPTIONAL)

Small portable solar panel and power bank for charging personal items like a cell phone on longer trips when access to power is not available. Solar panels with 10-20 charging watts that weigh no more than 2.5lbs are handy, lightweight, and cost-effective. We recommend bringing a small lightweight power bank like the Goal Zero Flip 36 or Venture 35 to store the solar power, and charging your devices directly from this power bank. For more information please see our blog post.

Toiletry Bag

TOILETRY BAG

Include toilet paper (stored in a plastic bag), hand sanitizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, wet wipes, and any personal medications or prescriptions. Choose a quantity appropriate for the length of your trip. Female climbers should bring an appropriate amount of feminine hygiene products for the duration of the trip (for international trips, these can be difficult to find last minute in-country).

Water Treatment Tools

WATER TREATMENT TOOLS

You need to be able to treat four to six liters of water for personal consumption each day while on the trek to Base Camp. Steripen purification tools have become very popular – they quickly and easily treat water without the addition of chemical tastes. However, some find them temperamental from a battery perspective, even when extra batteries are available. Please bring one set of chemical treatment drops as well, in case your Steripen fails. Once you arrive at Base Camp, all the water will be boiled.

Sunscreen

SUNSCREEN

Two to four ounces of SPF 30+ sunscreen. Varieties with zinc-oxide are more protective! Two to four ounces per week is typically sufficient, but several small tubes can offer insurance against lost or exploded tubes. Sunscreen loses SPF rating over time; we strongly recommend brand-new sunscreen.

Lipscreen

LIPSCREEN

Several tubes of SPF 30+ lipscreen. As with sunscreen, be sure your lipscreen is new.

Running Shoes

RUNNING SHOES

Lightweight, comfortable running or walking shoes are recommended for off-mountain use and pre-and-post trip travel. In some situations, these may also serve as approach shoes.

Altimeter/Smart Watch (Optional)

ALTIMETER/SMART WATCH (OPTIONAL)

Altimeter and Smart Watches are increasingly popular and a great way to track your trip in the field. Models with GPS tracking, altimeter, and activity mode options are most common in addition to having traditional watch features like an alarm clock. Smart watches can be a very helpful tool in training for your climb. For a long trip, we recommend bringing a power bank and charging cable into the field as GPS tracking requires a significant amount of a battery power.

Small Personal First-Aid Kit

SMALL PERSONAL FIRST-AID KIT

Basic medical supplies in a compact package. We recommend over-the-counter pain relievers, Moleskin, first-aid tape, Band-Aids, and antiseptics wipes or gel.

Medications & Prescriptions

MEDICATIONS & PRESCRIPTIONS

Bring any personal prescriptions, plus Pepto Bismol, Metronidazole (500mg tablets), Z-Paks (500mg tablets), Diamox (125mg tablets, approx. 2 per day at altitude), Zofran (4mg tablets), Imodium, Erythromycin ointment for those who wear glasses/contacts, cold medicine (Mucinex, Tylenol cold +flu, Theraflu), and a variety of over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol and Ibuprofen. Some find that Excedrin (a combination of aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine) works particularly well at relieving altitude-related headaches. We also recommend a selection of hard candies and cough drops to handle the cold, dry air.

Hand Sanitizer

HAND SANITIZER

Many alcohol-based hand cleaners will work well. Bring a small amount appropriate to the trip duration.

Face Mask (Optional)

FACE MASK (OPTIONAL)

We recommend that all climbers have a face mask easily accessible in a waterproof bag (Ziploc, etc.).

Shower Gear

SHOWER GEAR

A small packable towel, shower sandals, and a small bottle of soap/shampoo can be nice to have for personal hygiene during the trip.

Base Camp Comforts

BASE CAMP COMFORTS

It is good to bring additional other items which you have previously found useful- playing cards, music players, board games, reading tablets, etc.

Hand and Toe Warmers

HAND AND TOE WARMERS

Bring three sets of each. Please note that toe warmers are different than hand warmers. They are formulated to work in a lower oxygen environment, like the inside of a boot, they also burn out more quickly.

Food

FOOD

All the food for this trip is provided, but bring any snacks or other food and drink items you wouldn’t want to climb without!

Please let us know in advance if you have any food allergies we should be aware of.

SMALL DUFFEL

This item can double as carry-on luggage for your flight, and is used to store any items you do not plan to take into the mountains. Think light and simple, with 40-50 liters of total capacity. Bring a travel lock for peace of mind.
