Mount Everest, the greatest challenge, is more than the famous mountain on earth; it has unique beauty, mystery and mood.

The Nepali name, Sagarmatha, means \”head touching the sky\” and in Sherpa, Chomolungma, meaning \”Mother Goddess of the world\”.The toppers feel proud to climb Mt. Everest 29028ft (8,848m) and are adventurous like Sir Edmond Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa who first climbed the summit for the first time in May 29, 1953. Their effort brought Khumbu glacier as a base camp of Mt. Everest. Most of the tourists need Sherpa’s to climb but some of them do not need the guide and climb themselves. Most of the climbers carry internet, satellite telephone, medical doctor, and modern requirement.
After crossing crevasses, seracs and ice blocks we should face to the way up having chunks of ice as large as our houses. Ropes and aluminum ladders should be used to climb the first camp 6,400m.
Camp1: 20,000ft (6,400m): Camp1 situated on the flat area of endless crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun’s reflection we get warm and heating ambience. Murmuring and crackling sound of crevasses beneath the tent will wake up us and it’s a natural sound from where we have to walk to reach camp2.
Camp2: 2,21000ft (6,750m) :The 2100m footed mount is located on the foot of Mt. Lhotse through we have to go ahead. Weather here is good but sometime heavy wind destroys our tents where we rest. After climbing these places we proceed to camp no3.
Camp3: 3,22300ft (7100m):It is located to just to Mt. Lhotse wall. After climbing the four thousand meter Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization. This way heads to camp 4 for Mt. Everest. from there short snowfields the route moves ahead up to Geneva spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. In camp3 the amount of oxygen is less than normal so, climber should be provided oxygen when needed.
Camp4:4, 26000ft(8400m):Now we are just 500m for the summit in the camp no.4 situated at 26000ft. but its path is somehow dangerous. The normal way via the narrow south East Ridge and it precedes the south summit 28710ft. This place is final but dangerous part of climbing because this place is besieged by ferocious and violent winds.
