Mt. Everest- South 8,848 m (29,028 ft) high lies at the border of Nepal and Tibet. It is the tallest mountain in the world. It is also called Sagarmatha in Nepali which means ‘Goddess of the Sky”.The Tibetan calls it Qomolangma which means “Goddess Mother of the World”).It received its official name in 1865 in honor of Sir George Everest, the British Surveyor General. Sir George Everest was the first person to record the height and location of Mt. Everest; this is where Mt. Everest got its name. Mount Everest was first climbed on May 29, 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay via the South Col route. The first attempt was made by George H. L.

Adventure Extreme is organizing expedition to Mt. Everest in every April/May. Similarly we will be organizing expedition in 2013 too. Adventure Extreme will be organizing expedition based on clients requirement and comfort. We will be providing service to the climbers up to summit as well as up to base camp. These all depend on climbers wish as per their financial support.

Our expedition start from Kathmandu to Lukla. After walking for 7 days we will reach Everest BC which is at altitude of 5300 m. Our Kitchen staffs will be waiting for the climbers to welcome. The climbing begins from this altitude. We will also set up kitchen at Camp II for the comfort and safe climb.

The Route
The Everest expedition is started from base camp. While we climb we will cross crevasses, Seracs and ice black. Similarly we should face to the way up having Chunks of ice where we should used fixed ropes and aluminum ladders to climb ahead camp 1 st 6400m.

Camp I: 20000 ft. (6,400m)
Camp I is situated at the flat area of snow endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun's reflection from this place we get warm and hitting ambience at this place. In the night we listen the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk to reach camp II.

Camp II. 21000 ft. (6,750m)
Camp II is situated at the height of 21000 ft. It is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. Hear bad clouds roll-in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp II. Some time wind here seems very violent enough to destroy the tents. After climbing these palaces we reach camp III.

Camp III. 22300 ft. (7,100m)
Camp 3 is located at the height of 22300 ft, adjoining to mount Lhotse wall. After climbing 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization it leads us to camp IV. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep shallow bands (loose, down -sloping and rotten limestone). From their crossing short snowfield the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. (Another wells name meaning Saddle of pass). Oxygen should probably be use above base camp III incase of needed.

Camp IV. 26000 ft. (8,400m)
Camp IV is located at height of 26000 ft. It is the last camp of the Expedition. From here summit is only about 500 m distance far. This is the final and dangerous part of the climbing. This place is besieged by ferocious and violent winds. The normal best way to reach to summit is via the narrow South - East Ridge and it precedes the South Summits 28710ft.
