Mount Everest North Side

Everest Expedition North Side: 10 April – 31 May 2019

This is your chance to summit the world’s tallest mountain without the crowds and without needing to cross the Khumbu Icefall! Spend time experiencing the beauty of Tibet (and its people) while also enjoying the more technical and colder Northern terrain. Evacuation is also not possible higher than Base Camp, something to be considered when choosing which route to take to the summit.
Skill Level
As with the South side, technical experience is an absolute must with prior ascents of multiple 6,000 – 7,000 metres highly recommended. You need to be able to confidently and comfortably climb moderate rock, ice and snow terrain and be able to perform at altitude for multiple days in a row. Significant and prolonged training before the trip is vital – including cardiovascular, strength endurance, climbing-specific training and regular hiking.
Itinerary Overview

Our trip begins in the busy town of Kathmandu where we will spend three nights. Our time their includes an expedition briefing, Welcome Dinner, half-day city tour and any last-minute shopping for items. Our next few days include exploring, overnight stays and acclimatization days at Lhasa, Shigatse, Shigar and Tingri before driving to Everest Base Camp on Day 11.

After a full day of expedition preparation in Base Camp, we then leave for our climbing period on Everest until Day 58. We then make our way back to Shigar for the night, before overnighting in Lhasa and flying to Kathmandu.

This was a very hard mountain to climb. What an ordeal. But, when you rise to the challenge and succeed, it is very special. Very special indeed. There is no way that I would have been able to do it without the staff and logistics of Adventures Global. Thank you for making my dream come true Mike
