EVEREST NORTH EXPEDITION 2017

Expedition Date: April 10 - June 05, 2017

                                                             This expedition will start out in Kathmandu and fly to Lhasa. After sightseeing in Lhasa and visit to Potala, we drive to the Tibetan town of Shigatse and the following day continue our journey and spend a couple of night at Shegar before arriving at Everest BC. This Everest Expedition is full-board expedition, includes all BC & ABC tents, High Altitude tents, BC & ABC food, High Altitude food, all oxygen, regulator and mask set, communication system and all accommodation and transport as per itinerary.

Our expedition will meet in the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu.

Sherpas We provide a 1:1 Sherpa to climber ratio. 

Oxygen We provide seven bottles 4-Liter Poisk oxygen and a mask and regulator set. We don't recommend climbing without oxygen.

Recommended Experience To join the Everest expedition you will need to have strong mountaineering experience. This should include previous high altitude experience of at least 6,000 metres, mixed with a multitude of Alpine mountaineering and, preferably, you will have taken part in a previous 8,000-metre expedition, Cho Oyu or similar. We know that those who have previously been to an 8,000-metre peak have a considerably better chance of getting to the top of Everest.

Please provide a climbing resume upon booking.
