Climbing Everest Expedition South Col Nepal side 2023

Are you prepared to face the most physical and mental challenges the Himalayas has to offer? The Climbing Mount Everest Expedition 2019 would like you to come join our team in Nepal for the ultimate experience of a lifetime.

World famous heroes Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, taking the South Col route on the Nepal side of Mt. Everest were the first climbers to ever reach the top. Since that day in May 1953 many Expeditions to Mt. Everest has been successfully reached by many adventurous climbers. To join our International Mount Everest Expedition team in Nepal you must first have had extensive mountaineering experience in climbing 7000 or 8000-metre mountain peaks in the Himalayas. Although we use fixed ropes it is a must you are highly experienced enough with crampooning extremely steep snow and ice slopes.

Shera Sherpa Adventures’s focus when putting together this amazing International Everest Expedition 2019 from South Col Nepal was to help achieve one’s ambition. Our Climbing Sherpa team is highly experienced in providing the support needed for all high altitude climbing. This has been proven by the record of many safe and successful Everest Expeditions in Nepal. We first set out to establish our Base Camp at 5300m at the foot of the well known Khumbu Icefall. We then continue to make our way to Camp I at 6200m. From there we climb to Camp II at 6600m in the middle of the Western Cwm. Followed by the climb up the Lhotse face to Camp III at 7200m. After that, we eventually head up from the South Col to Camp IV at 8000m prior to making our summit push.

Everest Expedition Base Camp

During the length of the expedition, a permanent base camp is set up for the duration of the time. We have an excellent base camp cooks who cater delicious meals. We also have a Mount Everest South Col Expedition team manager who is in control of organizing everything needed in order to make the expedition successful. Each and every member of the expedition team is equipped with their very own personal tent. The tents include an Exped down filled mattress for support and comfort. There is a private shower and toilet tent for personal hygiene kept very clean. We also have a spacious dining hall filled with dining tables and chairs. This comfortable hall is carpeted, heated and lit by solar electricity. We strive to offer the most comfortable and luxurious stay possible while at Everest base camp.

Training and Climbing Strategy for Everest

Before ascending up to the higher camps we spend several days at base camp in order to get the proper acclimatization needed. After arriving at base camp several things are in order. We organize refreshment climbing training which covers the techniques used for climbing. We also provide and teach the techniques used for glacier travel, rope fixing, ascending, descending, safety techniques, abseiling, belaying, use of oxygen, mask, and regulator etc. Before beginning our journey in an attempt to climb Mount Everest Expedition Nepal a practical climb of a 6000-meter peak will be organized to test our climbing skills.

Climbing sherpas will conclude their setup of preparation to ensure that all the high camps are fully stocked with the needed supplies such as tents, food, and oxygen as we get ready for the summit push. We will climb the Khumbu icefall numerous times as we continue on our acclimatization hike to Camp 2 and Camp 3. Keep in mind there will be tents at all higher camps. We then return to base camp where we will spend the remaining time resting and getting ourselves prepared for the summit attempt. While waiting for confirmation on the appropriate safe weather forecast we then proceed with our summit plan to ABC then CAMP 1, CAMP 2, CAMP 3, Camp 4 and then finally what we’ve been waiting for the SUMMIT. In order to make sure everyone has the much-needed support to enable them to scale the summit safely and then return back to camp there will be 1:1 one Climber and one climbing Sherpa ratio.

Climbing Gears, Expedition Food and Load Ferry

In a bid to The Mount Everest Expedition Nepal all high altitude tents, as well as all the expedition group climbing gear, solar lights, dining tent with chairs and tables, oxygen, regulators, masks, climbing ropes etc will be provided by Shera Sherpa Adventures. Adequate, ample and quality hygienically prepared food will be provided at the advanced and base camp tents during your Everest expedition. The higher camps will have many readily available high altitude. Other expedition operators charge extra for the all expedition loads to ferry from base camp to the higher camps. However, ours is included in the cost of our expeditions.

Expedition Safety, Communication and Weather

Every one of our Everest Expedition climbing Sherpas has oxygen and comprehensive medical kits as a safety back up along with a gamow bag. They have extensive knowledge of wilderness medical training and are equipt to handle any and all medical issues as they arise.

We request that all climbers carry personal micro medical kits for ensured safety. During the entire expedition, we use the most accurate up to date weather forecast service. Good weather is always wanted of course on all of our Everest Expeditions. In order to continuously stay updated on the current weather, we are in constant communication with the professional service the entire length of the expedition. We want to ensure the utmost safety of our climbers from the summit push to the safe return at base camp. Two-way radios and satellite phones will always remain available for all communication. We will be using 4-litre Poisk oxygen bottles most recent, tested TOP OUT masks and oxygen regulators.
