The Everest expedition in Nepal presents one of the world's greatest physical and mental challenges. Joining the climbing Mount Everest expedition conjures with a wonderful feeling of pride and the sense of being most adventurous person on the planet. The South Col route on the Nepal side of Everest mountain is the route taken by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa who were the first to climb Everest successfully on the 29 May 1953 thus became world's famous heroes of the adventure climbing. Climbing Mt. Everest expedition has been successfully guided and climbed many times since then, but this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into complacency - climbing Everest mountain is the ultimate challenge.

Join the International Everest expedition group 2021

To join our International Everest Expedition team in Nepal, you must have extensive mountaineering experience of climbing expeditions at least of 6000 meters as well as a experience of scaling difficult alpine mountain peaks, preferably, some climbing experience of the 7000 or 8000 metre peaks in the Himalayas. Although fixed ropes will be used, climbing Everest mountain members must be able to ascend and descend fixed lines independently and be proficient with crampooning on very steep ice and snow slopes. Mountain Monarch's main objective in organizing the International Everest Expedition 2021 from South Col Nepal side is to make your dream come true to be able to summit Everest safely but also to have the greatest sense of exhilarating personal achievement and fun at a very affordable cost.

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

Our Climbing Sherpa team is one of the best teams - their experience of providing the very best high altitude climbing support is second to none - proven by the record of multiple successful summits on Everest Expeditions in Nepal. We establish our Base Camp at 5300m at the foot of the notorious Khumbu Icefall before making our way to Camp I at 6200m. We climb to Camp II at 6600m in the middle of the Western Cwm, then climb up the Lhotse face to Camp III at 7200m. Finally, we head up from the South Col to Camp IV at 8000m before making our summit push.

Everest Expedition's Base camp

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

Training and Climbing Strategy

We spend several nights at base camp for proper acclimatization before we head to the higher camps. Upon arrival at base camp, we organize refreshment climbing training covering climbing techniques, glacier travel, rope fixing, ascending, descending, safety techniques, abseiling, belaying, use of oxygen, mask and regulator etc. We will also organize a practical climb of a 6000 meter peak to test your climbing skills before we head out on our attempt to climb Everest.

We climb the Khumbu ice fall several times on our acclimatization hike to Camp 2 and Camp 3. Climbing Sherpas complete their duty of preparation 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 recuperation before we make the summit attempt. After getting confirmation of a favorable weather forecast, we head up with our summit plan to ABC and then CAMP 1, CAMP 2, CAMP 3, Camp 4 and then the SUMMIT. We provide expedition tents on all the higher camps. There will be 1:1 one Climber and one climbing Sherpa ratio to ensure that every climber has complete support to enable them to scale the summit and return back 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 tent with chairs and tables, oxygen, regulators, masks, climbing ropes etc in a bid to Everest expedition in Nepal. We provide sufficient, plentiful and tasty hygienically prepared food at both base and advanced base camps during your Everest expedition. Ample high altitude foods are provided at higher camps. All the expedition load ferries from base camp to all the higher camps are included in the cost which most of the other expedition operators charge as extras.

Everest Expedition safety, communication and weather

All our mount Everest mountain climbing Sherpa have extensive knowledge of wilderness medical training and they are competent to deal with the normal medical issues. We have Oxygen and comprehensive medical kits along with a Gamow bag available as a safety back up.

We also motivate all the climbers to carry personal micro medical kits with them. We use most recent, tested TOP OUT mask and oxygen regulator and 4 litre Poisk oxygen bottles. Satellite phones and two-way radios will always be there for communication. Good weather is essential on all Everest expeditions and to ensure the safety of all our climbers and supporting crew.
