Simply climbing a wall is a difficult and scary task itself, so we can assume how difficult it is the level to stand as close to the sun by the summiting highest peak of the world, Mount Everest (8848 M). The dream to reach the summit by expedition has become the most challengeable activity. Many people from around the world climb Everest achieving a new goal or mission also for scripting their name with golden writings in the historical record in a book. You always want to become a role model and set a good example for others, it is one of the best and great opportunities to be the one. Mount Everest is known as Sagarmatha in Nepal which is the highest peak in the world with a 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. Mount Everest was the 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 attempt to climb the Mt. Everest but only a few of them get success. Only those people will get success who have high dedication and determination to reach the top. Physical fitness and experiences are the factors that will be helpful during Everest climbing.
Fitness can be boosted with endurance training and meditation. Taking part in hiking, cycling, yoga and regular fitness exercises are also key to achieving it. Pre-trekking descriptions and motivation sessions will also aid in supporting overall well-being.
Mount Everest is the English name of this highest mountain of the world (baptized after Sir George Everest), and hence is known as “Chomolungma” in the Tibetan language, and “Sagarmatha” in Nepal language. Chomolungma means “Mother of the Universe”. Likewise, Sagarmatha is comprised of two words “Sagar” and “Matha”, which means “Forehead of the Sky”. It shows that expediting Mount Everest takes one closer to the sky and the universe.
Mount Everest Expedition is the greatest opportunity of reaching the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. Stepping there on the peak of the world and waving flags with proud is the cherry on top for all kinds of trekkers in the world. Mount Everest (8,848 meters) can be expedited from both Nepal (South Side) and Tibet (North Side). It takes 60 days to reach Everest crest from Kathmandu within the Nepal side, and around 54 days to reach Mount Everest Top from Kathmandu within the Tibet side.
Mt. Everest can be climbed from both northern side Tibet and southern side Nepal but the Northern side is closed by China so, the southern side is the only way to climb Everest. These two routes lead 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.
Kathmandu -> Phakding -> Namche Bazaar -> Tyangboche -> Pheriche -> Lobuche -> Everest Base Camp -> Mount Everest -> Base Camp -> Dingboche -> Namche Bazaar -> Lukla -> Kathmandu
Kathmandu -> Pangla School -> Listi -> Bagam -> Maneguldung -> Lake Bhairav Kunda -> Geyul Kharka -> Dongbuk Kharka -> Zom Zom -> Tashitang -> Larcha Bridge -> Zhangmu -> Nyalam -> Thingri -> Everest Base Camp -> Everest Summit -> Base Camp -> Nyalam -> Kathmandu
Take knowledge about possible health problems that may occur during the expedition. The major problem that may occur is altitude sickness.
Fitness training is the most while trekking to the Everest. Approximately, 3 months of intensive fitness training and hitting the gym 5 to 6 times a week for cardio and resistance classes will build up your lung capacity and increase strength in your legs. The heaps of squats, lunges, and stair climbing or hiking once a week will also assist a lot for your physical motivation. It will assist in making you both physically and mentally active so that you will be able to understand and act on any climate, environment and occurring situations effectively. All these will automatically decrease the chance of fear and risks that occur during the trek
75% of our body is made up of water and only 25% is made with other elements. It plays a vital role in our lives for making it a long-term run. Similarly, water is a divine element of the trek. You should focus on drinking 3 to 4 liters of water and must drink it as much as possible. It will make more sweat flow away, which will also assist in coping with different problems like AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), altitude headaches, etc. It will also help in maintaining the sugar level in the body.
No matter what the season is, whether it is winter or summer, it will always be cold on the mountain site. So, it is mandatory to carry warm clothes (like thermals) and other waterproof clothes (including socks) to make your body safe and comfortable. Right shoes should be chosen because the walking is done for up to 10 hours a day and the wrong choice will damage your legs. The typical recommendation is proper, waterproof and one size bigger hiking boots which should be started wearing 6 months before going there. Being sun smart by carrying decent sunglasses, hats and buffs will add more to your trek.
The environment around is so much adorable and the people are much more obliging and cheerful who will make both your time and trek satisfying and worthy. So, gratitude should be taken as a major attitude. The vegetarian food is recommended during the trek, as there is a chance of being ill eating meat items (as they are likely to have been left unrefrigerated for days). The items like vegetarian momos (Nepalese Dumplings), Dal baht and fried Mars bars are the mains that provide countless help during the climb. The sugar/energy level also may go down, so lots of snacks like nuts, chocolates, chips, muesli bars should be packed, eating which keep your energy and spirit up.
The much-conserved type of people should avoid that trek because they are likely to be demotivated in the context of taking the risk. So, taking a risk should be done in order to enjoy the beauty of nature and Himalayas. Rush during the trek can be hazardous i.e. the time should be utilized and managed properly so that all the activities would be done in a fixed period of time.
It is very important to take information as much as possible before we go somewhere, which is to be done in the same way before climbing the summit. We can read different blogs, reviews, and other articles. The back to back meetings with the climbers will also help you know about the place in the more detailed form. Taking advice from them about what to do and what not to do will also be beneficial.
Experience is earned by the trial and practice. So, for trekking, it is likely to have some of the experiences which will lead towards the bright and joyous trek. For this, the trekking experience is demanded a lot as it will be very difficult to trek directly to the Everest summit. Some of the recommended treks are Annapurna Circuit Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek, Everest Base Camp Trek, and Gokyo Valley Trekking. The people with short hiking and trekking experience and habit can also take some of the fitness training and join the expedition of reaching high on the top and gain a lifetime experience.
All details about costs and full itineraries should be studied properly. The blunder like cutting off the days from itineraries should not be done because it is likely to generate a problem during the trek, which might harshly affect the health condition as well. In the end, staying at home won’t show you the world. You have to come out of your comfort zone to see the unexpected and glorifying beauty along with mesmerizing services and hospitality. So, let’s explore the beauty of Nepal with Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition and be the part of the pleasing and comfortable trek to Everest.
