Everest Expedition

Daily Tour 53 days
Hanoi, Vietnam Nepal

Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world at 8848m/29,028 ft. or 5 ½ miles above the sea level! Mount Everest is located on the border between Nepal and Tibet. Everest was named after Sir George Everest, the British surveyor-general of India. Everest is known in Tibet as Chomolungma and in Nepal as Sagarmatha. The first people to reach the summit of Everest were the Late Tenzing Norgay and the Late Sir Edmund Hillary, via the South-East Ridge Route on the 29th May 1953.In 1975, Junko Tabei (Japan) was the first woman to reach the summit via the South-East Ridge.

The Southeast ridge begins with a trek to Base Camp at 5,380 m (17,700 ft) on the south side of Everest in Nepal. Expeditions usually fly into Lukla (2,860m) from Kathmandu and pass through Namche Bazaar. Climbers then hike to Base Camp, which usually takes eight to ten days, allowing for proper altitude acclimatization in order to prevent altitude sickness (AMS). Climbing equipment and supplies are carried by yaks, dzopkyos (yak hybrids) and human porters to Base Camp on the Khumbu Glacier.

Day 06 Namche Bazaar Acclimatization Day
This is first scheduled ‘acclimatization’ day for this trek. Health experts always recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day too instead of being idle. We either spend the day taking a day hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or carry out relaxed exploration of Namche Bazaar itself. Namche Bazzar is the main center of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we trek a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help us to properly acclimatize. Visit the Tourist Visitor Center near the Sagarmatha National Park headquarters and observe an assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn about the various plant and animal life of the Everest region. We also take an interesting side trip up to Khumjung and climb up to famous airstrip at Syangboche. Just above the airstrip is the Everest View Hotel, a Japanese scheme to build a deluxe hotel with great views of the highest mountains on Earth. The Khumjung valley surrounded by the snowy peaks of Kongde and Thamserku and the sacred peak of Khumbila hosts a well known monastery that houses a yeti scalp.
