Mount Everest, also called as Chomolungma, Qomolangma or Zhumulangma in Tibetan, Sagarmatha in Nepali, is the highest mountain on Earth, as measured by the height of its summit above sea level, which is 8850 meters (29,035 feet). The mountain, which is part of the Himalaya range in High Asia, in Tibet straddles the east section of the Nepal/Tibet border, with its northern side lying in the Tingri Country. Before 1949 all approaches had to be made from Tibet as Nepal was closed. It was only in 1980 that Tibet was reopened for expeditions and with that a whole new world of exciting opportunities unfolded.
In 1856, the Great Trigonometric Survey of India established the first published height of Everest at 29002 ft (8840 m), although at the time Everest was known as Peak XV. In 1865, Everest was given its official English name by the Royal Geographical Society upon recommendation of Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General at the time.
The Route from Tibet:
After complete work of your Tibet visa and other necessary documents for the Everest Expedition we drive you towards to Nepal-Tibet border up to the Friendship Bridge through Araniko Highway, where the Chinese liaison officer and Chinese transportation keep waiting us there. The expedition gears are taken by y truck and we drive you by Land cruiser 4WD to Zhangmu, which is first city of Tibet to entrance.
We take acclimatize with one night at Zhangmu (2300m) and two nights at Nylam (3750m), which also gives us the chance to trek up the high hills for acclimatization. Then we drive to Tingri (4350m) next day and spend further two nights for acclimatization. Then we drive Tingri to Base camp 5200m along the rough way with jerking and bouncing through the grassy plain way which leads you till to the Everest Base Camp; and it is called the Chinese base camp as well.
We set up our camp at Chinese Base Camp and stay two nights or more and it depends on our members feeling. We also make schedules of the yaks by that time. Base camp and advance base camp fixed at the different places are kept there permanently until finishing the whole expedition. Now 2 days walk towards the ABC starts from here.
Advance Base Camp (ABC) 6400 meters: After walking 2 days, we reach to ABC 6400m along with the Yaks. From ABC, the route goes to the east Rongbuk (Everest Base) glacier and after that there is an easy snow slopes to the North Col at 7000m. Where camp 1 is situated on snow.
After that there is a long reasonably angled snow slopes to climb 7400m. Where we should put camp 2 on snow, the route from Camp 2 to camp 3 is the series of the rocks, which is a little bit difficult. But again there is a very easy terrain to walk ahead to set up camp 3, This camp 3 is at the height of 7900m on the rock.
The route again goes through a series of rocky climbs, and then there is a median angled snow slopes where we have to climb on mixed rocks and snow until we reach camp 4 at 8400m. which was covering by snow before but now this camp is on the rock. To reach there, we have to fix the ropes on climbing but there are safety lines, which provide you safe place when you are tired and the wind seems windy to blowing there. This route is mostly very windy especially between Camp 2 to camp 3
Camp 4 is the last camp for Everest summit from North East Ridge . Now the route is mixed with rocks and snow steps. This step is quite steep in many places so you require very considerable care for yourself, your clothing and oxygen equipments.
After that, the North East Ridge is wide but we have to climb through small steps with a little bit height until we go ahead where we fix the rope. Above there the climbing is a little bit exposed but it is easy again to reach ahead in the second steps. After the second steps the route is in the series of small nude ridge, which is sometimes covering with snow.
After that route with large boulder where we should use ladder to climb ahead, Again after that section of the route, we should fix the rope. Above these steps, the route is relatively easy with gentle ground until we reach at the third steps. Now to go head it is not the series of ridge as the previous steps but we should use the fixed rope to the Col before the final summit of snow slopes. Again there are quite steep and fixed ropes to go ahead to the buttressed rocks from where there is a short section of corniced ridge to reach on the Summit of Everest.
