Overview of Mt. Everest Expedition North Side
Mt. Everest, also known as Sagarmatha in Nepali is the tallest peak on earth with an altitude of 8848m. There are two commercial routes on Everest expedition: South and North route. The southern face lies in Nepal whereas northern face is in Tibet. After several attempts, the first successful attempt was made by Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay on 29th May 1953 via the south route and in May 25, 1960, a Chinese team made the first summit via north ridge.
Talking about the north ridge, the expedition mainly starts from Tibet side. Chinese team claimed to have reached the top via north ridge for the first time in 19960, which was not accepted because of lacking photographic evidence. Later on, Takashi Ozaki and Tsuneo Shigehiro became the first to scale Mount Everest from the north face. The Everest north ridge expedition is technically more straightforward then the south ridge. At present, one can drive all the way to its base camp and take yaks all the way to Advance base camp or camp III at 6,500m. Climbing Everest via north (Tibet) side is the least expensive way to climb it. Among the several reason, low cost of loyalty, basic mountaineering service and the safest route to the summit are the key factors to attract more Everest climbers from north route than the south route. The only royalty for single climber via Nepal side is $25000 whereas the climbers has to pay $7200 via China, which is extremely different.
Our guides are highly skilled, well trained and experienced in this field who will be guiding you to the summit and back safely. But the climbers also must be in excellent physical shape, must be able to climb moderate rock, ice and snow terrain often with an alpine pack on you back.
