Everest Expedition - The Biggest and Ultimate Climb to 8848.86 meters

Mount Everest Expedition presents one of the world's most significant physical and mental challenges. Joining the climbing of Mount Everest conjures an extraordinary feeling of pride and the sense of being the most adventurous person on the planet. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa take the South Col route on the Nepal side of Everest mountain. They were the first to climb Everest successfully on 29 May 1953 and thus became the world's famous heroes of adventure climbing. Climbing Everest has been successfully guided and climbed many times since then. However, this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into complacency. Undoubtedly Climbing Everest is the ultimate challenge.

Our earlier expedition has achieved 100% success rate with 6 climbers reaching the summit of the mt Everest

To join our International Everest Expedition in Nepal, you must have extensive mountaineering experience climbing at least 6000 meters. Further, an understanding of scaling challenging alpine mountain peaks, preferably some climbing experience of the 7000 or 8000 meters peaks in the Himalayas. Although fixed ropes will be used, all members climbing Everest must be able to ascend and descend fixed lines independently and proficiently with crampons on very steep ice and snow slopes. We follow the South Col Nepal side route to make your dream come true to summit Everest safely.

Mt. Everest Expedition South Col Route Climbing Strategy

We set up a permanent Expedition base camp for as long as the climbing continues. Each member has a personal tent with a mattress for comfort. We provide a spacious dining hall with chairs and tables - carpeted, heated, and lit by solar electricity making your stay at base camp as luxurious as possible with internet facilities at hand. We have a shower tent and toilet tent; all are kept in hygienic order. All climbing staff members have their tent along with kitchen and store tents. We have an experienced expedition cook at base camp to cater to the fantastic meals and a team manager to deal with all the required logistics for a successful expedition. 

We climbed the Khumbu Icefall several times on our acclimatization hike to Camps 2 and 3. Climbing Sherpas complete their preparation duty by ensuring that all the high camps are well stocked with tents, food, and Oxygen for the summit push. We return to base camp for rest and recovery before we make the summit attempt. After confirming a favorable weather forecast, we head up with our summit plan to ABC, CAMP 1, CAMP 2, CAMP 3, Camp 4, and then the SUMMIT. We provide expedition tents in all the higher camps. There will be a 1:1 one Climber and one climbing Sherpa ratio to ensure that every climber has complete support to scale the summit and return to base camp safely.

Climbing Gears, Expedition Food and Load Ferry

Mountain Monarch provides all the expedition group climbing gear, including all high-altitude tents, solar lights, dining tents with chairs and tables, Oxygen, regulators, masks, climbing ropes, etc. We provide sufficient, plentiful, and tasty hygienically prepared food at both base and advanced base camps. Adequate high-altitude foods are provided at higher camps. All the expedition load ferries from the base camp to all the higher camps are included in the cost, which most of the other expedition operators charge as extras.

Climbing Guide, Safety, Communication, and Weather

Our Climbing Sherpa team is one of the best teams - their experience of providing the very best high-altitude climbing support. They are second to none, proven by the record of multiple successful summits to Everest. All our mount Everest mountain climbing Sherpa has extensive knowledge of wilderness medical training, and they are competent in dealing with everyday medical issues. We have Oxygen, comprehensive medical kits, and a Gamow bag available as a safety backup. We also motivate all the climbers to carry personal micro-medical kits with them. We use the most recently tested TOP OUT mask, oxygen regulator, and 4-liter Poisk oxygen bottles. Satellite phones and two-way radios will always be there for communication. Good weather is essential on all Everest expeditions to ensure the safety of all our climbers and supporting crew. We use a professional and reliable weather forecast service for the whole climbing duration with regular info and updates until the ultimate summit push and safe return to base camp.

Booking open for Spring 2023 and 2024

    Very qualified Sherpas, great management

    Everest may be considered the most important expedition for every mountain climber. It was even more important for our team, as we were the first Albanians to attempt it. An immense preparation from our group was followed by a wise choice regarding the company which would support us. I should strongly emphasize that a prepared and qualified, supportive staff makes a difference in this achievement. In Mountain Monarch, we found very qualified Sherpas, excellent management on their part, and a lot of new friends. It was this atmosphere that made it possible that all the members of our group could reach the summit. An enormous success. For all the above reasons, I would strongly advise.

    First Ever Albania Expedition to Everest

    For hours from this moment, I have been writing to you; one year ago, our Everest team and your Sherpa team were at the world's top. What a miracle! What emotional moments we went through! For our team and Albanian mountaineering, it was an unusual success! Thank you again for your help; I want to thank the Sherpa team, especially Trendy, and the supporting staff!
