Everest North Face
Everest North Face route is considered easier to climb than the Nepal side, but it is always challenging. The excellent part of climbing from the north is that we don’t have to climb through the perilous Khumbu Icefall to acclimatise repeatedly. The way from ABC to the final camp is very safe with altitude increment.
The transportation facility in Tibet has made it easier to reach the base camp-5182m. Then the treks start at Interim camp- 6187m and to advanced base camp (ABC)-6492m. The actual climbing starts from ABC to North Col or C1-7000m, camp-2 at 7500 m and the final camp or Camp 3 at 8300m. The rocky part onto the first, second, and third steps has made climbing on summit day more prevalent and harder. Sometimes, a traffic jam at the second step forces us to wait for as long as Hillary-step from the south side, and we may have to give up from there. Nevertheless climbing Everest is everyone’s dream; however, only a few try and reach there. All of our expeditions begin after a Puja ceremony where dedicated Lama Guru (head monk) will conduct the ceremony, he will recite the prayers to The Mountain gods asking for well-being, safety, safe passage and a successful expedition.
