Everest South Side Expedition
Duration: 51 Nights / 52 Days
Altitude: 8,848m
Location: Everest Region

Join our Guide Pemba Mt. Everest South Side Expedition and climb Mt. Everest, at 8,848 meters, (29,035 Feet), perhaps the most coveted mountain in the world. The Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) route was first climbed by Tenzing Sherpa and Sir Edmond Hillary in 1953 and features the best weather and conditions to summit. Our proposed Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) schedule allows for a careful and safe ascent, along with multiple full descents to base camp and the lower valley.

Camp 1 is situated in a flat area at an elevation of 6,400 meters. This area allows us to soak up the sun’s reflection among the endless amount of glacier crevasses and help be protected from the wind by the mountain walls. Camp 2 is at an elevation of 6,750 meters and is located at the foot of the icy Lhotse face. Camp 3 is at the height of 7,100 meters and is adjoining to the Mount Lhotse face. After climbing the 4,000 foot Lhotse face utilizing fixed ropes and with prior acclimatization, we start toward Camp 4. Camp 4 is located at the height of 8,400 meters and is the last camp of the expedition. From here we prepare for the summit.

Note: After the sucessful summit to Mount Everest and trek back to Everest Base Camp. We will provide you the complementary helicopter ride back to lukla to our guest.
