Everest Expedition – Nepal

Mt. Everest Expedition has proved to be a benchmark of Nepal climbing achievement. The mountain receives around 1000 summit attempts every year. Everest can be climbed both from the southern side Nepal and northern side Tibet. After the Cultural Revolution in the 1950s, China closed the Tibet borders to outsiders and Nepal began welcoming foreigners to the Everest Region. Since then the southern approach to the mountain via the Khumbu Valley became popular among the climbers.

Mt. Everest was first summitted in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via the South Col. Climbing Mt. Everest is certainly a lifetime opportunity. However, Everest Expedition encounter many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion. For organizing Everest expedition while our goal is to get as many members to the summit as possible & even more importantly return safely home. However, because of the nature, unpredictable weather conditions of The Mount Everest and due to being one of the highest and the most difficult mountains to climb in the world, we cannot guarantee everything about the Everest Expedition. However, International Sherpa Adventure Team makes all the efforts to organize safe, successful and satisfying experiences during the expedition in order to achieve the goals of the summiteers.
