Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure
Everest Expedition from Tibet

Everest Expedition from Tibet is one of the most lifetime experience and we the Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure would be delighted to help you to explore this impressive region.

The world highest peak in the world Mt. Everest with an elevation of 8848m. Two routes are used to climb the expedition, one from the southeast in Nepal and other from the north in Tibet. Expedition from the north side is popular compared to the south side. Climbing the Everest was started by British reconnaissance and Leigh Mallory from the Northside, in Tibet. The Tibetan name for Mount Everest is Chomolungma "Holy Mother". In 1960, the Nepalese government originated a Nepali name as Sagarmatha "goddess of the sky". Spring and autumn are the best weather from Nepal and spring from Tibet are the best. Climb the Everest with the best logistics and infrastructure.

Everest climb from Tibet is less expensive than via Nepal. Low cost of royalty and other basic mountaineering services, as well as the easy route to the summit, attract the climbers from Tibet. The climbing route from North Side (Tibet) is much safer and less crowded route. As compared to the South Side, it does not have the danger of ice fall. Everest Expedition is the greatest physically and mentally challenges with the wonderful feeling of pride and the sense of being an adventurous person. Expedition to Everest is effortful task need to be physically, mentally, technically fit and ready to adjust in changing conditions. The expedition encounters many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions, and even sheer exhaustion. Our cooks are regarded as the best providing hygienic and appetizing meals with an agreeable array of menus to suit all your food requirements. The meals you are offered are designed to sustain you for the rigors of the ascent.

Our 60days Everest Expedition from Tibet starts from the vibrant capital city with a mountain flight to the capital of Tibet, which offers a century’s old forts, magnificent monasteries, prayer halls of chanting monks and remote cliffside retreats. It provides an opportunity to see Buddhist art and cultures on the way to Base Camp. Alternatively, we can arrange helicopter from Kathmandu to Rasuwa border. Or, instead of drive to Kerung, we can also arrange the direct flight to Lhasa. Furthermore a short visit to the Rumbuk Monastery, which holds the climbing history of Mount Everest. One of the main Buddhist retreats its numerous caves and prayer flags illuminating the rude climate of the Tibetan Plateau. Wild yaks, wild donkeys, mountain goats, eagles, vultures, bears, snow leopard, wolf, wild dogs, and the amazing flora, are its specialty. That grows thin air might all be to appear in the Tibetan landscape on the way to Base Camp. From there it is 22 km to the Advanced Base Camp at 6400m by yaks. We put an intermediate camp on the glacier about halfway between Base Camp and Advanced Base Camp, so this trip takes two days. From the ABC the route continues up the East Rongbuk glacier to the north of the glacier and then up easy snow slopes to the North Col at 7,000m.
