“THE SAGARMATHA”   is known as  Mt. Everest  in the world. There are two different word   SAGAR and MATHA ,. The initial word SAGAR means the sky and the last word MATHA means the head of the Nepali people, which elaborate the story of Nepalese  people with pride of their history and glory  with the altitude of 8848m.  The highest peak in the world,  is also known as the Roof of the world. The South face of  the mountain lies in Nepal, where  the North face is said to be laid in China. This world’s highest peak was first officially measured in 1956 during the Great Trigonometric Survey of British India government and then known as Peak XV certified with the height of 8840m with a simple technology and the distance.  The height was determined with really phenomenal accuracy and only 8m off from the current value of 8848m.

Mount Everest Expedition is a successful ascent of the world’s highest peaks.  Even thoughthe highest mountain in the world has been conquered many times in these forty six years. Everest is still as mysterious, mind boggling and splendid  as ever. Mt. Everest at an altitude of 8,848m (29028ft) has been recognized as a top of the universe because it is the earth’s highest point. Annually, thousands of tourists assemble to spend blissful moment on the mountain. This outstanding peak is the prime attraction among all. First scaled by Sir Edmond Hillary and Late Tenzing Norge Sherpa in 1953, since then it has been a dream for every adventure seeker to reach on its summit. This is really a challenging job, but those who have the courage determine to get it done. Starting from base camp situated on the Khumbu glacier at 5486m (18000ft), climbers set their way crossing crevasses, Sercs and chunks of ice using fixed ropes and aluminum ladder led by climbing guide. The team should be fully equipped with modern equipments, satellite phone, medicine kit, etc. This mountain has many names Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, Qomolungma or Mt. Everest Our Sherpas and Sardars are named  the most experienced mountaineers in the world. We serve something for almost every level of climber, either the first ascent at the higher altitudes or  going for the world’s highest. Mountain Experience provides the infrastructure, including obtaining permits, outfitting and organizing Base Camp facilities and arranging accommodation before and after the expedition. We manage and set up including high camps, transport loads, provide food, tents, oxygen, satellite telephone, porters, our own Sherpas and Sardars, advice and assistance.

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE/FITNESS

The technical difficulty of this climb is not high, but it is physically demanding with long days and sections with a lot of exposure. The trip is ideally suited to strong, experienced climbers who want to climb the peak in its own right, or to use the trip to gain experience for higher peaks in the future. To move efficiently and enjoyably we recommend you have experience of Alpine PD+/AD routes and /or an ability to climb Scottish grade I / II winter routes and previous experience of altitude of at least 4800m before.

A TYPICAL TREKKING DAY

Starts around seven am (not a problem as its usual to go to bed early!) with you packing your overnight gear into a kit bag before enjoying a hearty breakfast ready to leave camp whilst it’s still fairly cool. The pace on the trek will be leisurely with plenty of time to enjoy the scenery, take photos, chat to the locals and keep hydrated. Lunch is usually in a fine spot by the side of the trail and, most days, you will be arriving at our overnight camp mid afternoon ready for a well earned cup of tea. This leaves an hour or so to rest or explore before a three course evening meal. It is quite remarkable what the locals can produce in these remote circumstances.

WEATHER CONDITIONS

The Post and Pre monsoon conditions experienced from October into mid-December. April-May is usually very fair, dry and stable. Daytime temperatures are pleasantly warm in the valleys (20-30C) whilst cool to very cold (especially with wind chill) high on Baruntse. Night time temperatures are cold to very cold (possibly as low as minus 30C) and you should make sure you have a very warm sleeping bag (-30c), an expedition weight down jacket and good quality down mitts.

CATERING ARRANGEMENTS

Food on the trek and at Base Camp is excellent and designed to stimulate your appetite despite frequent altitude induced loss of appetite. Breakfast includes porridge and cereal followed by eggs (fried, boiled poached or omelettes) and either bread or chapattis with jam, honey, peanut butter etc. Lunch starts with juice and may include chips, rice, lentils, vegetables, salad, sandwiches, beans, tinned fish and tinned meat. Dessert is usually fresh/tinned fruit and tea. The evening meal always starts with soup (often with a healthy dose of garlic to aid acclimatisation) accompanied by poppadums, popcorn or prawn crackers. The main meal varies from local style – Dal Bhat (rice and lentils with an onion and vegetable sauce), Yak stew, momos etc. to western style – yak burgers, chips, pasta, even pizza! Desserts are equally appealing and include apple pie, cake, custard etc. You will not be hungry! Once on the mountain we use dehydrated meals supplemented by chocolate, muesli bars, cheese, nuts, salami, etc

IMPORTANT – The small print

Please note, flights to and from Lukla can be delayed due to the weather. Please be patient and bring a good book to read. If the flight is delayed overnight accommodation is included on a B&B basis. In cases of longer delays, optional helicopter flights are sometimes offered at an extra cost.

MISSED INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS

We allow one extra day in the itinerary for bad weather. If you are delayed longer (unusual) we can re-book your International flight but additional costs may/will be incurred. Tickets can be changed according to availability and the class of ticket, you may need to upgrade and be flexible on your return date. All additional payment would need to paid for in Kathmandu (card payments accepted).

RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

We employ local staff to work alongside our own group leader giving employment beyond farming. We ask that you restrict showers to those lodges that have electricity or solar power, thus reducing deforestation. Be prepared to wash using bowls of warm water or ‘wet ones’. We recommend you dispose of burnable rubbish at the lodges but take other items such as bottles and batteries back to Kathmandu. Avoid plastic bottles of water by bringing iodine tablets and a refillable bottle to drink local pumped water. Soft drinks should be purchased in glass bottles that can be recycled.

ALTITUDE

Our itineraries generally allow sufficient time for your body to acclimatise. The best way to avoid any problems is to do everything slowly, walk at a gentle steady pace and drink plenty of fluid. Our leader will give an appropriate briefing on arrival.

USEFUL TIPS

Just in case your main luggage goes missing en route, it is a good idea to wear your boots on the plane. Most other things can be replaced but comfortable, well worn-in boots are more difficult to replace easily.

EQUIPMENT

A detailed equipment list is provided on booking. Specialist items such as sleeping bags and down jackets can be hired or purchased.

BAGGAGE

For your own comfort travel light. Normally airlines restrict baggage to 20kg and the Lukla flight 15kg, but you will be wearing boots and one set of trekking clothes. Some items can be left at the hotel for your return.

VISAS AND PERMITS

US/UK citizens and most EU nationals can purchase Visas on arrival. All other countries should check with their local embassy. Passports must be valid for at least six months after the end date of the trip.
