Mt. Everest is known as Sagarmatha in Nepal which is the highest peak in the world with the height of 8848m. It offers the most adventurous and dangerous trek in the world. Almost every person on this planet has the dream to stand on the top of the world. Mt. Everest was first ascent in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and late Tenzing Norge Sherpa but it is still one of the most adventurous mountaineering in the world.

Every year around 10,000 people attempts to climb the Mt. Everest but only few of them gets success. Only those people will get success who have the high dedication and determination to reach the top. Physical fitness and experiences are the factors that will be helpful during Everest climbing.

Mt. Everest can be climbed from both northern side Tibet and southern side Nepal but Northern side is closed by China so, southern side is the only way to climb the Everest. These two routes leads to the two different base camps on Everest. All the climbers assemble here in these base camps before starting for acclimatization and ending time of their climbing. During this trek there can be many obstacles including harsh weather, altitude sickness, sheer exhaustion and avalanches. It would be better to carry your own internet or satellite phone and other modern equipment.
