It goes without saying that Mount Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) is the world’s highest mountain. Sagarmatha rises to an astonishing 8848 meters (29,028 ft) above the sea level making it the highest point on earth a man can stand and hence increasing those thrive to step on the highest point on this planet among us mountaineers.
Since the late 19th century, adventurous spirits have been fascinated with the ascent of the mountain in the world. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa of Nepal and Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand became the first people to stand on the top of the world on May 29, 1953 through South Col. They went through Khumbu Glacier and continued their ascent to the summit via the South East Ridge.
Being Outfitter in Nepal of Expeditions to the Highest Mountain on the plant has it own challenges and rewards. Our team of dedicated and hardworking people from the Management to the Sherpa Climbers have made it all possible and the highest point on the planet is indeed accessible to mountaineers with strength, endurance, experience and a huge heart. The Everest Base Camp Trek in itself is as good as it gets when it comes to Trekking in Nepal Experience but the fact that being at the base camp just below the summit makes one desire for the peak even more. Everest Base Camp Trek is the ideal way to get one started to reach the highest point on earth and Everest Expedition is as high as it gets.
