Everest Expedition (8848m)

Duration: 62 Days   |  

At Alpine Eco Trek, It is our great pride that we are capable to organize Mount Everest Expedition from Nepal side. "Mount Everest" The name was named when Sir George Everest, the surveyor general of India from scaled the peak in1856. It was called Peak XV until before 1856. The height measurement of the peak was done through the Great Trigonometrically Survey in 1850. Nepali name of the Mt. Everest is 'Sagarmatha', meaning "Sky Mother." However, the Tibetan people love to call it 'Chomolungma', which refer to "Mother Goddess of the Country."

There is a huge controversy regarding the exact height of Mount Everest. Andrew Waugh, the successor of George Everest had given its height 29,002ft (8842m.) Later, this height was increased to 29,028ft (8,848m) which is the universally accepted altitude. In 1999, the Boston Museum of Science GPS system attached to Bishop's Ledge, the outcrop just below the summit, suggested the height no more than 8,830m (28,970ft). Similarly, the National Geographic Society announced that the correct height of the Everest was 8,850m (29,035ft). Let the geologists go on exploring the actual height of the Everest; it is anyhow, the highest mountain in the world. It is reported that the mountain is rising a few millimeters each year due to geological forces.

Mt Everest Expedition has proved to be a benchmark of climbing achievement. 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.
