    The journey to the world's highest mountain was the best 60 days of my life. I was on Everest with the best trekking teams at the  perfect destination. I had an excellent cooperation with the Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition team. They were so quick to reply and reliable. At a really reasonable price, the NTA provided an exceptional package. This trek was so challenging and satisfying that I recommended both their expedition and the company to all my friends and  family for their comfort. The path to the summit was surrounded with many high mountains and greenery. Although it was hard enough, we experienced many amazings things during the trek. Everything was perfect and thanks to NTA for this memorable experience on Mount Everest.

    Mount Everest Expedition with NTA

    Rating:

    ‘Summiting the highest mountain in the world’, this sentence itself is filled with a lot of proud and satisfaction. Truly, the experiment was way beyond imagination. Taking over the company we chose, Nepal Trek Adventure was the one, with amazing members running it. Their years of experience in trekking, expedition, and tour was the key to our successful venture. Everything organized was perfect. No complaints about those, and of course no regrets about choosing this agency. Coming to the trail, stroll-over, rope-walks, and camping accommodation, all were new to me but were good to cherish about, for the rest of my life. I had done some training preliminarily, which supported a lot. Yeah, remembering the difficult part, when we crossed the camp II, my problem started. First, my feet slipped and got a minor twist. Guide Shiva solved it all but was paining for some time. Second, that small ice-fall which freaked me out. Ugh! I was like returning back to base camp. Despite all, the expedition went on. I will never forget that dreadful descends, and of course those rope and carabineer walk, and snow-march. Most obliged to NTA and guide Shiva for such a great time with us in such a Himalayan landscape.

    The greatest 60 days of my existence in the journey towards the highest mountain in the world is the best experience. I was with the best clutch and the best trekking trail and destination on the planet. I had an excellent involvement in Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition Team. Their administrations were so quick and dependable. I at long last found a reliable organization in Nepal whom I can depend on for any visit in the country. In a truly sensible value, NTA gave extraordinary help with no issues. The trek was so testing and fulfilling that I previously prescribe this to the entirety of my companions and I additionally suggest Nepal Trek Adventures for their solace. The excellent ways loaded up with the perspectives around us were encompassed by the high heaps and greenery of Nepal. Although it was tough enough, we could experience anything to have such an astonishing encounter. Everything went perfect and cheers to Nepal Trek.

What are the factors behind unsuccessful Mount Everest climbing?

Following are the factors behind unsuccessful Mount Everest climbing:

  • Homesick: We love our family the most. It’s hard to be apart from family for a long time. But making the family members our weakness is the ‘must avoid’ mantra for the trek like this. If not, people involved in this condition will not be able to complete the venture properly.
  • Negligence towards rules and regulations: Not following all the rules and regulations provided by leaders, guides, and locals before and during the trek led to unsuccessful climbing.
  • No previous experience: Trekking for 10 hours a day (approximately) is not a cup of tea. This trek is hard to accomplish even for experienced people because of the high chances of occurrence of unpredicted and unexpected events.
  • Drinks: Drinking alcohol-containing beverages should be avoided as much as possible. But for some alcohol habitual trekkers, it is recommended to take only a couple of pegs in order to keep our senses still.
  • Lack of oxygen (altitude sickness)
  • Health problems: People having health problems like vertigo, asthma, heart diseases, and other serious illness should not try this trek.

What is the height of Mount Everest?

The height of Mount Everest is 8,848.86 meters (29,031.7 feet).

Which one is better - the Mount Everest expedition from the northside or from the southside?

For Mount Everest Expedition, we take the south route i.e. from the Nepal side. This journey costumes more for those who have experience of climbing the mountains/peaks more than or equivalent to 7,000 meters. The actual summit expedition starts from the base camp (5,364 meters), to reach which will take around 10 days.

From base camp, we move towards Camp I (6,065 meters) where we will observe Khumbu Glacier. Around 450 meters away with a gradual slope from Camp I, we reach Camp II (6,500 meters). Again with 610 meters walk, we reach Camp III (7,200 meters) Camp III is situated at the top of Lhotse. From this point onward, there will be a need for oxygen cylinders. Moving further, we will reach Camp IV (7,910 meters), crossing 8,000 meters. This spot is also identified as the Death Zone.

So, for an incredible mountain experience and to get in touch with the path followed by legendary Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norge Sherpa, the Everest expedition from the south side can be the better choice.

Climbing the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest is unlike climbing simple staircases. The experience can range from tough to toughest.
