Reigning as the highest mountain peak in the world, Mount Everest Expeditions is a dream for all mountaineers. The first summit was made by Tenzing Norgay and Sir. Edmund Hilary in 1953 after which many others have successfully reached to summit of Mt. Everest. Although the first successful expedition was made nearly 60 years ago, it still remains as one of the most challenging expeditions and a great achievement.
There are many stories tied with Everest Expedition, especially related to the ones who attempted it after 1953. The most interesting one is associated with Captain J. Noel and his companions. The captain made his journey from Darjeeling through the Northwest Sikkim and round the north of Kanchenjunga while trying to reach Everest. But his efforts bore no fruits and his trip was cut short at just 65 km from the top of Everest when he was interrupted by Tibetan soldiers and was forced to return back.
There are many routes followed for Mount Everest Expedition but we generally follow the traditional route that is relatively easier and reliable one. We provide veteran Sherpa guides to Everest with years of experience in mountaineering. We are also committed to maintaining the ecosystem in the Everest region and therefore strictly prohibit practices that may be hazardous to the environment.
