Trip Overview

Ask any adventurer about their ultimate goal, and they’ll likely tell you about their aspiration to conquer Everest. Who wouldn’t desire to stand atop the world’s highest peak, to touch the sky itself? This journey is the Everest Expedition, an experience of a lifetime. Mount Everest, known as Sagarmatha in Nepali, towers at 8848.86 meters, residing in the Himalayas on the border between Nepal and China. The mountain’s southern face lies in Nepal, while the northern aspect extends into Tibet.

In 1715, China first surveyed the mountain, incorporating it into their cartography as Mount Qomolangma. The British Indian government furthered these efforts in 1856 during their Great Trigonometry Survey, initially naming it Peak XV and approximating its height at 8840 meters.

Peak XV was later renamed Mount Everest in honor of Sir George Everest, the lead surveyor in 1856. Sir George, a Welsh Surveyor, served as the surveyor-general of India for thirteen years starting in 1830. Since Tibet opened climbing in the early 1920s, Everest has captivated mountaineers worldwide. The 1922 British Expedition, led by Charles Bruce, made the initial attempt to scale Everest’s summit. Edward Norton, in his second attempt with the British Expedition, determined the height to be 8572 meters. Mountaineers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine vanished on the third attempt. Mallory’s remains were discovered in 1999. Numerous efforts were made on Everest before the historic success of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on May 29, 1953, via the South route. Reportedly, around 1000 ascent attempts are made annually now.

The Mount Everest Expedition offers an unparalleled opportunity. However, it comes with challenges such as high altitude, harsh weather, and avalanches. Adequate training is essential. To summit the 8848.86-meter peak, climbers must prepare their bodies. Depending on your fitness level, several months of training are necessary before beginning the ascent. Developing cardiovascular and muscular strength is crucial since oxygen levels drop by 60-70 percent from sea level. Also, the ability to carry heavy backpacks is necessary, as climbers will transport oxygen cylinders and large packs. Acclimatizing to weather conditions and preparedness for rockfalls and avalanches are imperative. Learning rescue techniques is advantageous.

The Taktok Brothers Everest expedition is scheduled to commence in early April from Kathmandu, following the southern route. There will be a couple of days for equipment preparation and paperwork before flying to Lukla, where the trek to base camp begins, taking approximately 7 days. This expedition suits those with prior experience on several 7000m peaks or more. The journey advances to Camp I (6,065m), offering a view of the Khumbu glacier. Camp II (6,750m) involves a gradual ascent of about 450m, while Camp III (7,300m) stands at the head of Lhotse. Beyond this point, oxygen cylinders become necessary. Camp IV (7,910m), also known as the Death Zone, lies shortly after surpassing the 8000m elevation.

Our Airbus and Heli Everest will provide continuous support, delivering fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and other supplies almost daily while ensuring safety.
