Mountain Background
World famous for being the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest is also considered to be a very difficult mountain to climb. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa  were the first to successfully conquer this mountain in 1953. Its official name “Everest” was given by the Royal Geographical Society upon a recommendation by Andrew Waugh, who named it after his predecessor in the post, Sir George Everest.
 
It is also called “Sagarmatha” by the Nepalese and “Chyomolungma” by the Sherpas and Tibetans. Bordering with China, its massif includes neighbor peaks Lhotse(8,516 m) Nuptse (7,855 m), and Changtse (7,580 m). The Southeast Ridge from Nepal, called the South Col Route, and the Northeast Ridge from Tibet, called the North Col Route,are the usual climbing routes.
 
The mountain receives around 1000 summit attempts every year. Everest can be climbed both from the southern side Nepal and northern side Tibet. After the Cultural Revolution in the 1950s, China closed the Tibet borders to outsiders and Nepal began welcoming foreigners to the Everest Region. Since then the southern approach to the mountain via the Khumbu Valley became popular among the climbers. Mt. Everest was first summitted in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via the South Col. Climbing Mt. Everest is certainly a lifetime opportunity. However, Everest expeditions encounter many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion. Therefore, we strive hard to conduct the best expedition program putting high importance on the safety aspects of the climb.  

Despite being the highest mountains on planet Earth, the Himalayan range of mountains including Mt. Everest are relatively younger than their American and European counterparts like the Andes, the Alps, and the Rockies. The Everest has fascinated the mountaineers all over the world since the European climbers discovered the Everest when Tibet was opened to outsiders in the 1920s. During his lecture tour to the U.S. in 1923, George Mallory gave the reason behind his interest in Everest Expeditions quipping, 'Because it's there'. Unfortunately, Mallory and Irvine disappeared high on the mountain in 1924 probably due to a snow storm similar to that documented by Jon Krakauer in his book Into the Thin Air. We believe that our planning, logistics, staffing and experience coupled with your enthusiasm, patience, and perseverance would help you achieve your lifetime dream.
