Mt. Everest Expedition Mount Sagarmatha Climbing:
Tenzing Norgsy Sherpa was born (29 May, 1914) and raised in Tengboche, Khumbu, in northeastern Nepal, and he reached 8,595m (28,199 ft) as a member of the Swiss expedition in 1952, and just year after Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary made the first official ascent of Everest (in 1953), using the southeast ridge route became the world’s most famous heroes in the adventure climbing. Thereafter door was open to climb Mt. Everest for any enthusiast.

Nature Trail Trekking and Expeditions knows the reliable way to charge you with overwhelming emotions when being in Nepal. How do you feel about trekking in the Himalayas and facing the challenge of human endurance? If you get enthusiastic about this idea in the same way as we do, our Everest climbing expeditions are exactly what you need. Nature Trail offer a trip that will be remembered for its breathtaking beauty, stunning views, and ultimate tests of your skills.

Climbing the mountain from the South side belongs to one of those Everest expeditions which allow you to move beyond the boundaries of your imagination. Being virtually on the top of the Earth provides you with a chance to build up a bigger picture. Overlooking the natural wonders of Nepal, Everest is known to be a legendary mountain steeped in history. It is not about easy-to-climb one that can be conquered by everyone. This mount poses a considerable challenge even for well-trained climbers. However, Nature Trail is ready to go the extra miles for you to have a chance to become the part of that history. When you embark on our Everest guided expeditions, it is up to you to open up horizons you have never seen before.

Features of Climbing Mount Everest from the South Ridge

The unique point of this route lies in crossing the Khumbu Icefall and the Lhotse Face. While Everest is known for harsh weather conditions and unpredictability, this glacier features crevasses and seracs scattered all over the way. With this in mind, Nature Trail provides all climbers with professional guiding services and equipment required for successful ascending. We have been mapping out new routes and improving safety standards for many years to help you achieve summit aspirations. That is why our Everest expedition cost includes scores of ladders, carrying ropes, and other equipment to get through crevasses and other obstacles successfully. Besides, new techniques allow us to cross the Khumbu Icefall much faster than before. We will do everything it takes to overcome difficulties the South route is fraught with.

On the Road to Summit

Everest trekking means crossing snow-capped peaks while being in full gear at heights of above 8,000 meters. Plus, every climber is subjected to the effects of high altitude, including oxygen deprivation. Therefore, Nature Trail allows for several acclimatization periods at camps so that you can get accustomed to ever-changing environmental conditions and keep your performance at the highest level.

Before setting out on a guided expedition to Everest, it is recommended to test your mountaineering skills, endurance, and adaptiveness. Although we will provide you with professional assistance and vital equipment, you should practice hard to be able to pay tribute to nature while standing at the summit of the highest mountain in the world.

Nature Trail enables you to live through the experience you have been looking for so long. Choose this climbing route and enjoy the allure of Everest to the fullest. Now the time has come to challenge yourself!

About Expedition Price:
Nature Trail has able to include the cost of each package in the company website. However provided prices are based on basic service only. For the Mt. Everest Expeditions, there is no price that we can fixed without completed requirements of your expedition needs. So, our price ranges starts from US$ 15000 up to US$ 65000 each person.

To provide you services in reasonable cost and attempt to address your each requirement we desired to provide you with some information which directly affects the cost and also helps us breakdown the cost. Since this is a big expedition, even we have given you basic price, we have decided to clarify our customers that due to following reasons our price might change.

The cost of the trip always depends on the size of the group, category of the hotel accommodation and the facilities that you aspire in the mountain.

We operate the peak climbing in full arrangement package and basic arrangement service (full board or base camp service) which directly affects the expedition cost.

The itinerary may be changed after reaching an understanding between the agency and the client. Other activities could be added or reduced as per the client’s request before processing the trip. Price for reduced activities could be deducted and additional activities could be added in mutual understanding.

The number of climbing Sherpa guides, high altitude porters, kitchen crew, mode of transport you prefer and many other factors can affect the cost of the trip.

Number of persons in group including; number of climbers, non-climber, base camp supporters, medical doctors, Alpine climbing guide also affect the cost.

Either you want to operate this expedition as international group joining basics of Nature Trail or individual (private arrangement) expedition.

Request numbers of oxygen, mask regulators and the brands the clients require

Climbing season: Normally most of the climbers climb Himalayas in the spring and the autumn season. The climbing permit royalty cost for mountain will be 50% less in the autumn than spring season.

Type of high camp food that clients require. Any specialized food that has to be ordered from foreign country will be costlier compared to the one available here.

Either any of the climbers intend to attempt any world records? If so, do they require special services or equipment?
