Mount Everest, rising 8,848m (29,028ft) above sea level reigns as the highest mountain on Earth. For decades summiting Everest has been considered as one of the greatest mountaineering achievements. In the spring of each year, we embrace this intense challenge by taking a group of qualified climbers to climb mt. Everest via the South East Ridge of Nepal. The first successfully climbed on Mt.Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay Sherpa accomplished this feat on May 29, 1953. Since then, the South East and also via other various routes, the Mt.Everest has seen over a few thousand ascents. The South East is by far but the most successfully climbed route on the mountain.
The Everest area, known locally as Sagarmatha National Park is home to some of the world's highest peaks as well as the famous Sherpas, migrants from eastern Tibet who crossed over the Himalaya and settled here sometime in the late 1400s or early 1500s. This trek is one that goes deep into the heart of the Himalaya. The mountain views are stunning, and the simplicity and hospitality of the Sherpa community are heartwarming. You will get to take in the awe-inspiring views of Mt.Everest, the tallest of them all, Mt.Lhotse, Mt.Nuptse, Mt Amadablam, Kasum Kangru peak, Thamserku peak, and Kwangde peak, etc. You will also be visiting Sherpa villages and monasteries to gain insight into their culture and lifestyle from up close.
This classical Everest trek into the Solu-Khumbu region begins with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla & continually trekking along the Dudh Kosi ("MilkRiver"). After crossing the Namche Bazar” Sherpa head quater/Capital” we will continue on to Tengboche with its beautiful Buddhist monastery, this small village is considered the spiritual center of the Khumbu area. We will gradually make our ascent to Machhermo (4,470m) where we do hiking and acclimatization to the hills before getting into the Gokyo lake and climbing the Gokyo peak (5,360m). After successfully climbing Gokyo peak, we cross through the Ranjo La Pass, which is one of the breathtaking panoramic viewpoints for the world highest mountains. And we will start to descent and trek to Thame, from where the world-class climbers come from. Then continue to Namche and trek, where our trek ends.

This kind of trek is challenging but doesn’t really require previous trekking and mountaineering experiences and also doesn’t require any technical experience. But if you have any previous experiences would be really helpful. Your fitness is really important for this trek; therefore we strongly suggest preparing yourself in good physical condition. You need to be trained at least for about 3 to 5 months to prepare yourself as a strong candidate. You can go to the fitness center every morning for about 1.5 hours, do hiking every weekend with increasing weights on your pack, manage some time for cycling for a couple of hours for 2 or 3 times a week. However, at the high altitude, there might be little symptoms of altitude illness like mild headache, fatigue, etc. but take it as normal and just drink enough water (4 – 5 liters) every day. On this trek, you need to be able to hike 4 – 8 hours over hilly terrain up to 5,500m of altitude with a daypack.
If you have any previous experiences of similar grade trek would be helpful, but if you don’t have is also not really important matter of issue. This trek will introduce you about high altitude trekking in the Himalayas and also about the local cultures, traditions, and local people.
Even if you are around the age of 65 years, you can be a candidate for this trek.
