Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side)
Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side)
Join our Satori Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) and climb Mt. Everest, at 8,848 meters, (29,035 Feet), perhaps the most coveted mountain in the world. The Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) route was first climbed by Tenzing Sherpa and Sir Edmond Hillary in 1953 and features the best weather and conditions to summit. Our proposed Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) schedule allows for a careful and safe ascent, along with multiple full descents to base camp and the lower valley.
Everest Base camp is situated on the north of the Khumbu glacier at an elevation of 5,200 meters, 17,500 feet. Our Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) team assembles here and uses this area as a staging and management area. From the Base Camp, climbers have to cross glaciers, crevasses and ice blocks. Some of these blocks, as large as houses, force climbers to utilize fixed ropes and aluminum ladders to climb through the Khumbu Ice Field and reach Camp 1 at 6,400 meters.
Any Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side) is a cautious and planned endeavor that requires excellent leadership, organization, excellent Sherpas, the best gear, safety equipment and guides. This equipment consists of individual tents for each member and full kitchen at base camp, along with access to satellite telephones and excellent food. Our guides and Sherpas fix thousands of meters of fixed line, hundreds of rock, ice and snow anchors and use top quality high altitude tents and stoves and full safety equipment to provide the best conditions and safety on the mountain.
Whether in Kathmandu, trekking toward base camp, or high up on the mountain, our experienced Mt. Everest Expedition staff is with you all the way. Our Sherpa’s and guides are some of the best in the world, are very friendly, possess excellent leadership skills and have ascended Everest with clients numerous times. Our base camp cooks prepare excellent meals three times a day and hot drinks are available 24 hours a day. For more information check out our Mt. Everest Expedition (South Side guides.
Mt. Everest Expedition South Side: Camps
Camp 1 is situated in a flat area at an elevation of 6,400 meters. This area allows us to soak up the sun’s reflection among the endless amount of glacier crevasses and help be protected from the wind by the mountain walls. Camp 2 is at an elevation of 6,750 meters and is located at the foot of the icy Lhotse face. Camp 3 is at the height of 7,100 meters and is adjoining to the Mount Lhotse face. After climbing the 4,000 foot Lhotse face utilizing fixed ropes and with prior acclimatization, we start toward Camp 4. Camp 4 is located at the height of 8,400 meters and is the last camp of the expedition. From here we prepare for the summit.
