Mt. Everest South Face Expedition

Mt. Everest South Face Expedition

Everest is considered the highest peak in the Himalayas and in the world. In Nepali it is called 'Sagarmatha' and in Tibetan 'Chomolungma'. We can see the long plume of snow-dust blowing off the summit. At sunrise, its peak is the first to touch the sun. It is a huge, black shark fin that hovers overhead. The wind blows stronger and stronger as you approach the summit. On the upper slopes of climb you feel like the wind is blowing around 80-100 mph. It is hard to stand upright and biting cold is unbearable.

The Southeast Ridge from Nepal, called the South Col Route is technically easier and considered to be the normal climbing route as compared to the Northeast Ridge or the North Col Route from Tibet. Sir Edmand Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa climbed the summit from the South Col Route for the first time on May 29, 1953. Their untiring effort brought Khumbu glacier as a base camp of Mt. Everest. Though both Hillary and Tenzing said it was a joint effort. After many years Tenzing finally spoke out and said Hillary was the first to put his foot on the summit of Mount Everest.

Beyond the base camp at 5540m there are four additional camps at varing altitudes need to be set up before attempting the summit at 8,848m. The view from each camp is fantastic. Many large avalanche and rock slides occur several times a day and night on the surrounding slopes.

The most favorable time for a summit attempt on Mt. Everest is in early May before the monsoon season begins. In May as the monsoon season approaches, the warmed air moving in from the Bay of Bengal pushes the jet stream to the north, affording climbers the opportunity to reach the summit without having to battle hurricane force winds. A lot of things have to come together all at once for a successful climb on Everest: a strong, healthy, and acclimatized team, ropes properly fixed on key sections of the route, high camps supplied, clear skies, and favorable winds.
