Asia: Expedition to Mount Everest from Tibet (8848m), a trip with a Russian Mountain Guide 7 Summits Club Collection

You are here:

Trip overview: Kathmandu – Lhasa – Xigatse- Xegar – Base Camp (BC) – Advanced Base Camp (ABC) – North Col (NC) – Summit – Dzangmu – Kathmandu.

Why go there?

We offer full service expedition, i.e.we provide members with:

  • High-altitude sherpa – 1 for 1 member
  • Guides (Everest summiters)
  • 1 for 5 members
  • Oxygen-cylinders “POISK” – 6 for one climber
  • Doctor in BC-ABC-NC
  • Stationary radios in all camps and a walkie-talkie for each member
  • 4 fully equipped Camps 5100m, 5800m, 6400m and 7000m
  • We provide sleeping bags and sleeping pads in Camps 5800м, 7000м, 7800м and 8300м
  • 2 fully equipped Camps 7800m and 8300m: with tents, sleeping bags&pads, gas-stoves, pans, gas-cartridges, freeze-dried food, oxygen-cylinders. Everything is delivered to Camps by expedition Sherpas
  • Free access to e-mail, TV set, DVD, sauna in BC 5100m

All our high-altitude Sherpas have Everest experience:

They bring all the team equipment and oxygen-cylinders to high camps and go with team all the way from ABC to the summit.

Our expedition starts in Katmandu: we are all meeting in the Yak&Yeti 5***** hotel. Members arriving by different flights are met at the airport and

brought to the hotel. The team will number 18-20 in all.

Three days later on April 4 we start for Tibet. From Katmandu we fly to Lhasa (3600m), drive to Xigatse (3900m) and Xegar(4200m). We have one day of rest in Xegar for acclimatization and the next day we drive to Everest BC (5200m). After 2-3 days in BC we start with yaks to IBC (5800m). The next day we proceed to ABC (6400m) where we pitch a camp similar to our BC.

A day later, after our Sherpas have pitched Camp 1 on the North Col (7000m), we move there and spend one night for acclimatization. Then we descend to BC and have 3-4 days’ rest there. After that we start again for ABC – by this time our Sherpas will have established Camp 2 (7700m). So, we reach Camp 1 (North Col) and make an attempt to reach Camp 2. In case we cannot do this due to bad weather or the lack of acclimatization, we descend to ABC, have a short rest there, and try to reach 7700m again. After one night at 7700m we go down to BC and have a long rest there. So by that time we will make three acclimatization outings.

Meanwhile our Sherpas establish Camp 3 (8300m), after May 15-17 the whole team move to ABC and we wait there for a spell of good weather.

As a rule after a night at 8300m and a summit attempt you run out of strength and oxygen necessary for a second bid…

So the most important thing here is to assess as objectively as possible your stamina, both mental and physical… And here your personal high altitude Sherpa – if you have chosen to hire one – comes in very handy, for he will carry your oxygen to the top (and help you down if need be). The only drawback is he will cost quite a sum. But certainly you will get a very good value for your money – at the bad concourse of circumstance it might be your life’s value.

The advantage of our expedition is that in terms of weather it uses the best time: late May – early June.
So we should return to Kathmandu on June 7 or 8. We stay at the Yak&Yeti again and leave it for home bringing a piece of Everest in our hearts.

We plan to run this program every year, so, if you are interested, contact us for details.

Prices for friends, familiy and sponsors:

North Col program (30 days) – 14 900 USD
If you want to bring your family, they can join all the way to North Col! or ABC/BC, the following prices are all inclusive from Kathmandu.

ABC program (1 month and less) – 7500 USD
ABC program (1 month – 2 month) – 8500 USD
BC program (15 days and less) – 5000 USD
