Everest ExpeditionChomolungma" to Tibetans, meaning "Mother Goddess of the Earth". "Sagarmatha" meaning "Goddess of the Sky" to the Sherpa people, Mount Everest gets its European name from British Superintentant General of the Survey of India 1830-1843, Sir George Everest.

The highest mountain on earth has several different names. to the westerners it became Mt. Everest in 1865. More recently the government of Nepal has given it the name Sagarmatha.The Solukumbu region of Nepal where Mt. Everest lies has been a magnet for travelers ever since its opening to foreigners in 1950. This region is famous not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries with their culture virtually unchanged through the centuries.


Solu has received countless trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world. Solukhumbu has developed to a stage where many options are possible-from a full-scale expedition with tents and porters to an independent trek using the local lodges.Sagarmatha National Park established in 1976 covers much of the region. This fascinating land surrounded by high mountains is a real paradise for mountaineers and trekkers .

Camp 1 : 20000ft. (6,400M.) : This camp 1 is situated at the flat area of snow endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun's reflection from this place we get warm and hitting ambience at this place. In the night we listen the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk to reach camp 2.

Camp 2. 21000ft. (6,750m ) : This camp 2 is situated at the height of the 21000ft, which is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. Whether is here is good but bad clouds roll in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp two. But wind here some times seems very violent enough to destroy our tents. After climbing these palaces we reach camp 3.

Camp 3. 22300ft. (7,100m) : Camp 3 is located at the height of 22300ft, adjoining to mount Lhotse wall. After climbing the 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization it leads us to camp 4. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep allow bands (lose, down -slopping and rotten limestone). From their crossing short snowfield the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. (Another wells name meaning Saddle of pass). Oxygen should probably be use above base camp 3 incase of needed to the climbers.

Camp 4. 26000ft. (8,400m) : Now are on at camp 4 which located height of 26000ft; it is the last camp of the Expedition. From here summit is about 500m, distance far. This is the final and dangerous part of the climbing. This place is besieged by ferocious and violent winds. The normal best way to reach to summit is via the narrow South - East Ridge and it precedes the South Summits 28710ft.

From here the way is easy to reach at the summit of the Everest 29028ft; and Sir Edmond Hillary and late Tenzing Norge Sherpa used this route in 1953.
