Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world,lies on the Nepal-Tibet border. The peak was first climbed by Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa from Nepal on May 29, 1953. These courageous climbers ascended Everest Base Camp through the south Col from the Khumbu glacier and continued their ascent to the summit via the south-east ridge. Now, this route has become one of the most popular routes to climb Mt. Everest.Everest Base Camp is situated at 5350m and from here there are 4 further camps to the summit at 8848m
The camp No 1 is situated at the flat area of snow with endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun's reflection from this place we get a warm and heating ambience. At night we hear the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk to reach camp 2.
This camp 2 is situated at the altitude of 21000ft, which is located at the foot of the icy Lhotse wall where we move. Weather here is good but bad clouds roll in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp two. But the wind here sometimes seems too violent to destroy our tents. After climbing camp 1 and camp 2 we reach camp 3 .
Camp 3 is located at the altitude of 22300ft, adjoining to Lhotse wall. After climbing the 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization it leads us to camp 4. On the way we have to ascend the steep climb crossing short snowfield and the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. Oxygen should probably be used above base camp 3 in case of necessity to the climbers.
Now we are on at camp 4 which is located at the altitude of 26000ft; it is the last camp of the Expedition. From here summit is just about 500m far away. 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 the summit is via the narrow South -East Ridge and it precedes the South Summits at 28710ft. From here the route is easy to reach the summit of Mt. Everest 29028ft; and Late Sir Edmond Hillary and late Tenzing Norge Sherpa used this route in 1953.
