Everest Climb North side

slide

Mount Everest is situated on the Nepal - Tibet border dominating the Sherpa region of Khumbu in the South and the open Rongbuk Valley in the North is the highest mountian the world. It is also known as (Chomolungma) is the the mother Goddess of the World - rises majestically to its supreme height of 8848m / 29,028ft. We climb this mountain via the normal North Col and North East Ridge route. We provide strong professionally led Sherpa climbing team, but it will be you taking each step, therefore good physical, mental and a spirit of mountaineering and previous mountaineering experience is essential to take part for this expedition.

Everest expedition, North side is a long climb on through the glacier but lacking a major icefall, it is a great route. Going back to the history the first ever expedition to Everest was carried out in 1921 by Mallory, Bullock, and wheeler with three Sherpas, who reached as a far as the North Col, and in 1924 another expedition including George Mallory and Andrew Irvine took place reaching upto Camp IV becoming contact less and the mystery remained unanswered whether any member of this team climbed the mountain and after numerous attempt by many people, finally Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa successfully reached to the summit of Everest on 29th May 1953. 

We start our Everest Climb expedition North Side in Kathmandu and drive through the Nepalese country side to the friendship bridge and enter to Tibet to the Everest Base Camp, but before that after our long research we found that driving straight to Everest Base camp at 5300m climbers will not get properly acclimatized or physically not much prepared, therefore we do a one week magnificent trek near the border on Nepal side taking you to 5000m which has proven to be very effective in terms of the acclimatization and physical training / preparedness that no other expedition organizers are doing.

Upon establishing a permanent advanced base camp, and few days acclimatization our strong sherpa climbing teams maintain and restock the food, equipments and other logistics to different camps, whereas you will walk up and down for better acclimatization, physical and mental preparations. We set up four camps from Advanced Base Camp for the summit. Having climbed Everest personally and organizing several Everest climbing expeditions, you can confidently book the Everest Climb North side with us in full confidence. We all know that Everest is the highest mountain in the world and should not take it lightly  in terms of the logistics, level of support & security, therefore we do not compromise on service provision for this expedition and our effort will be to put maximum number of climbers to the summit. We provide strong & dedicated  team of Sherpas who has long climbing experience in the Himalayas and several Everest Climbs and summits and good team cooks to keep your stomach health and tasty foods.

We have noted the following probable points related to Everest Climb North Side expedition whether it would help you further prepare the expedition.

Length of Everest Climb North side Expedition
Our Everest Climb North side expedition total duration is 64 days (Kathmandu to Kathmandu), this duration is planned for the overall expedition including for administrative formalities, approach to
Everest Climb North side Base camp  / fro Base Camp, acclimatization at Base camp, and above Base camp for the summit attempt etc….The daily driving to/fro BC / climbing / ascent duration depends on each camp basis, such as during duration for approach to Everest Climb North side Base camp in average is 5-6 hours drive, whereas from Base camp to diffe)rent camps is 5-7 hours in average. We set up 4 Camps above Base Camp and from Camp 4 we ascend to the Everest Summit and return back to Base Camp or Camp one and the duration is 9+ hours depending on each climber. The above average duration is just generalized, but the actual climbing duration depends on each climber.

Administrative Formality / climbing permit

There are some formalities for obtaining the
Everest Climb North side Climbing permit from CTMA (China Tibet Mountaineering Association), and as a professional Mountaineering expedition organizer company we take every administrative formalities for Everest Climb North side Climbing seriously so that the member/client could enjoy a hassle free Climbing. We process the permits 3 months in advance, therefore you are requested to send the relevant documents (please print them, fill up, scan them & send us by e-mail along with a scan passport photograph). We also need to obtain a separate visa for Tibet through the Chinese embassy in Kathmandu, Nepal.

You also need a multiple entry visa for Nepal which you can either obtain through the Nepalese conulate / embassy in your country or it can also be obtained upon arrival at Kathmandu airport and for quick processing please download this form and bring along with a passport size photograph with you. userfiles/tourist visa application.pdf

Difficulty of
Everest Climb North side Climb
This is another major question frequently asked. And the answer to this is rather simple; the difficulty of any mountaineering depends on your previous climbing experience, physical fitness, mental preparedness etc… Shishapangma climbing is of course not technically difficult except at certain sections but due to its harsh weather conditions, altitudes etc, can affect the climber and our team of climbing sherpas fix ropes at difficult sections of the climb and if you be bit careful about using your personal equipments such as you must not forget to cliff on your safety karabiners on fixed lines, step up your crampons carefully etc, the climb is not difficult, but for altitudinal adaptation, though the expedition is well planned in terms of proper acclimatization, at the same time we advise you have some previous climbing experience or use of technical climbing equipments and do some training before you come on the expedition such as jogging, running, long walking, cardio vascular exercises etc. It is also important that you have general check up with your doctor before coming on the expedition.

At an Emergency

MOUNTAIN CLIMB prides itself on being prepared for any emergency situation. Our guides / Sirdars are trained in first aid and can deal with most of the basic ailments that are associated with the
Everest Climb North side Climbing / mountaineering. When a serious emergency does occur, then outside help is needed and such rescues are expensive therefore every climber should have his or her own insurance arranged before coming on the expedition. It is advised that you buy the Insurance Policy right from the home Country through a reliable Insurance company covering medical, accidental and rescue evacuation. Please ensure with your insurance company whether they really cover the risk for such high altitude mountaineering expeditions. There is no quick helicopter rescue evacuation in Tibet, so, in real emergency situation fast overland drive to the border is only the option and then either by helicopter or overland drive back to Kathmandu.

Food safety & the types of food

Food safety to keep our expedition members is always a priority for us, therefore we brief you about the food safety before departure on an expedition. All food we take for Base camp use are freshly bought from the market, properly checked the date validity or freshness before we dispatch for the expedition and all our cooks and kitchen staffs are trained in cooking varieties of hygienically prepared foods and good taste.

During approach to/fro Base camp your meal and accommodation will be at Guest houses / hotels en route, whereas at Base camp stay our well trained and experienced cook will prepare fresh and tasty meals and snacks. We will have plenty of food including the traditional Nepali meal Dal Bhat (rice, curry, and lentils), noodles, rice, potatoes, vegetables and soup and Nepalese versions of western food such as pizza and French fries too. There will be also various types of snacks such as biscuits, chocolates, nuts etc also special cakes prepared by our cook with plenty of drinks such as tea, hot chocolates, coffee, juice etc… And for the Full board expedition service food for higher camps above base camp will be various types of light / energy foods such as chocolate bars, dry fruits, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar, whole meal packed food etc….

Drinking water during expedition

During approach from the border to Base camp and Back plenty of mineral water is available and at Base camp the water source is either from a small stream or snow melting that our cooks boil and 100% safe to drink or cooking. Above Base camp in the mountains the water source is from snow melting which is safe for drinking as well.

Equipment you should bring

Choosing the right equipment is very important especially for climbing. All group climbing equipments such as ropes, tents, snow bars, ice-screws, shovel, cooking pots are provided from Mountain Climb for full board expedition service, whereas you need to have enough personal clothes to stay warm and good gears for climbing or cool yet not over packed. Usually you will have warm days and very cold nights. Detailed information about the personal gear are available on request or briefly explained about the gear list section of the page.

Extra money to bring

Without knowing your proper service selection of the expedition either Full Board expedition service, Base camp service or any other services, it is next to impossible to justify the correct amount you would need to bring, but there will be always only little money that you can bring for personal expenses such as souvenirs, drinks, personal equipment etc... Therefore, we advise you on this after your chosen expedition service.

Experience of our guides / staffs

MOUNTAIN CLIMB has some of the most dependable and experienced guides / Climbing Sherpas. All of our guides / Climbing Sherpas have spent years climbing mountains and
Everest Climb North side experience with many several times to the Summit, so you can be confident in our staffs.

Accommodations & toilet facility

We provide a single twin sharing room en route to Base Camp and back and at Base camp you will be provided a single tent with thick mattress and pillow to make your sleep comfortable and at Camp I and above you need to share tent with another member which will be also warmer. There will be also a separate toilet and shower tent facility at Base Camp.

Environmental Responsibility

Our approach is to raise environmental awareness among Climbers making the
Everest Climb North side Climb expedition an Eco-Everest Expedition. We also give information to our valued clients on how to minimize maximum damage on the environment. We clean up and bring all our garbage back from Everest North side Base Camp and from the mountain as far as possible produced during the expedition. Yearly we invest 3% of our net profit for the above purpose and furthermore, in participating in various social works in Nepal. We always heartily welcome and enchant your comments and suggestions for a better way to serve our customers, environment and nature.

Apart from above if you have any further comments or suggestion, please write us: info@mountain-climbs.com


TIBET GENERAL INFORMATION

A land veiled in secrecy, closed to foreigners for hundreds of years, the roof of the world with its mystery, grandeur and overwhelming sights is now open to visitors for mountaineering / climbing or simply visiting to different attractions and Everest Base camps and Advanced Base camp.

Our expeditions to Tibet takes you to extraordinary places of religious and cultural interest; introduce you to the pious monks and the nomadic herdsmen of the Tibetan plains and exciting Climbs.

We offer limited but very exciting expeditions to Tibet. Mountain Climb organizes expeditions either entry Zhangmu or optionally Lhasa as well or in some exceptional cases entry from Beijing as well.

ABOUT THE EXPEDITION

Everest Climb North Side is usually operated on private group and organized basis. Fixed Departure dates are also available for the expeditions. We need a minimum of four people for an expedition; however a private expedition for 2-3 people can be organized also with an extra supplement. The prices given are on a twin share basis for a group size above 4 pax, although a single supplement is available.

CONDITIONS
Throughout your expedition in Tibet you will be accompanied by a knowledgeable Tibetan Liaison officer who will not only act as an interpreter, looking after the security of the group, but will also provide a valuable insight into the Tibetan way of life.

During your expedition in Tibet approach to/from Everest Climb North Side Base Camp, accommodation will be in the best available hotels and lodges. Meals will either be in the hotel or at a restaurant of your choice (where available). Whilst on the road, lunch will be at one of the many Chinese teashops along the way, which generally serve a variety of noodle and vegetable dishes and meat where available.

For group entry in Lhasa will usually be at the Lhasa hotel or Himalaya hotel or Shongbala / Dhoodgu, which are all renowned for their hospitality and warm Tibetan atmosphere. If you wish to stay at the Lhasa Hotel it can also be provided for an extra supplement. Meals will either be in the hotel or at a restaurant of your choice during approach to /from Base camp.

CLIMATE

Despite the high altitude of the Tibetan Plateau, the daytime temperatures are actually quite mild. Between April and November the average temperature ranges from 15 - 25 degrees Celsius and the skies are generally clear and blue. From July to August, though, a brief shower can be expected during the day. The nights, however, can become very cold with temperatures dropping below 0 degrees Celsius. During the day, a light shirt or jumper and light pants will be suitable, but a warm fleece or down jacket is suggested for nighttime wear.
 
VISA REQUIREMENTS

For the Tibet expeditions / trip you will need a double or multiple entry visa for Nepal which can be obtained either from your nearest Nepalese consulate or on arrival in Nepal. For Tibet, we will organise a group visa and expedition permits;  and in order to do this we will need a copy of your passport at least 15 days prior to the commencement of your expedition, followed by your actual passport 3 days before the trip with 3 sets of passport size photographs. If this is not possible, a group visa can be arranged in 1 day (excluding Saturday and Sunday), but this service incurs an extra charge of US$40 per person.
 
ENTRY POINTS

Our Everest Climb North Side expedition is based on entry and exit from Kathmandu. However, you can also enter from parts of Mainland China, i.e. Beijing, Chengdu etc. A separate shall apply subject to change in these entry/exit points.
 
HEALTH

Vaccination requirements change frequently, so we suggest you to consult your doctor at least 2 months prior to your trip. We also recommend that each person carry a basic first aid kit.
 
The main health consideration in Tibet is altitude related illness or Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). You may experience some mild symptoms initially, such as headache, lethargy, nausea and difficulty sleeping, but these should lessen within a few days.

Hotels in Lhasa are equipped with oxygen. Doctors will also be available on call basis. Outside Lhasa we carry a supply of bottled oxygen in the vehicles at all times should it be required.

MONEY MATTERS

The Chinese currency is known as Renminbi (RMB) or 'The People's Money'. The exchange rate for RMB is approximately 10 RMB to 1 US$. You can change money at the hotels in Lhasa and in the Bank of China in Lhasa, Shigatse and Zhangmu. American Express and VISA cards are accepted in the same places.

TIME

Tibet is 8 hours ahead of GMT. Note Tibet is linked to Beijing time so when you cross the border to or from Nepal the time change is considerable. Nepal is 5 hours and 45 minutes ahead of GMT.

SECURITY
Tibetans are generally honest and Hotel staff can be trusted not to walk off with your belongings. Pickpockets are purse and snatchers are virtually unknown and there seem to be no scams aimed at parting you from your money.

We urge the members / climbers for Everest Climb North side to be little flexible because sometimes due to little unrest in Tibet the entry date might slightly change though our dates are set avoiding such possible occurrences. More information regarding Everest Climb North Side is also available upon booking.
