Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain, is the greatest challenge and one of the most famous mountains on earth. It has unique beauty,mystery, and mood. Successful historical Everest Expeditions leaves one with the sense of most proud and adventurous people on Earth. Mt. Everest's local names give you a sense of how the mountain commands respect from all who see her. Standing incredibly tall silhouetted against the shared sky of Nepal and Tibet, this mountain has many names: Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, and of course, Mt. Everest. Whichever name one chooses, its vagueness still lives on. Most of the mountaineers dream to reach the summit of Everest in their life time.
Although there are a dozen or so routes on Mt. Everest, we follow the classical route which is traditionally the most reliable way to reach the summit. Climbing Everest expeditions have been successfully organized and climbed many times since then, but this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into complacency. Everest is a deadly mountain. One cannot approach the mountain with anything but a serious determination and focused mountaineering attitude. Everest is still as inexplicable, beguiling, and magnificent as ever.
Camp 1: 6400m. – 20000ft.
Camp 1 is situated at the flat area of endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun's reflection from this place we get warm and have ambience at this place. In the night we listen the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk through to reach camp 2.
Camp 2 is situated at the height of 6750m. – 21000ft. It is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. We may hear bad clouds roll-in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp 2. Sometimes winds here seem violent enough to destroy the tents. After climbing these palaces we reach camp 3.
Camp 3 is located at the height of 7100m. – 22300ft, adjoining to mount Lhotse wall. After climbing 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization - the path leads us to camp IV. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep allow bands (lose, downslopping and rotten limestone). From their crossing short snowfield the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. (Another wells name meaning Saddle of pass). Oxygen should probably be used above base camp III incase of needed.
Camp 4 is located at height of 8400m. – 26000ft. It is the last camp of the Expedition. From here the summit is only about 500 m distance. This is the final and most dangerous part of the climbing. This place is besieged by ferocious and violent winds. Normally the best way to reach to summit is via the narrow South - East Ridge and it precedes the South Summits 2,8710ft.
