Mount Everest is the most famous and tallest mountain in the world. You’ve seen it in movies and documentaries, and you may have even wondered if you could climb it one day. But climbing up this peak is no easy feat, and there are a number of obstacles to be aware of before embarking on an expedition.
Climbing Routes of Mount Everest
Climbing Everest is an adventure that many people dream of taking. There are three main routes of climbing Everest: the southeast ridge from Nepal (Everest Nepal) and two routes from Tibet (Everest Tibet). The two routes from Tibet are the north col ridge and the north face, which is technically more difficult. If you’re hoping to reach the summit, it’s important to familiarize yourself with these routes so that you can pick the right one for your skillset.
A more advanced route that is still frequently used by climbers is the South Col Route, which requires trained mountaineers who are comfortable with steep ice and rock climbing. This route was first used by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary in their historic first ascent in 1953.This route begins at the Khumbu Icefall, which leads climbers to Camp I, then Camp II, and finally Camp III at 24,500 feet. From there, climbers ascend a steep rock-and-ice face known as “the Lhotse Face” before reaching a ridge known as Geneva Spur, which leads them to Camp IV at 26,000 feet—also known as “Death Zone.”
North Col from Tibet is the easiest route compared to north face. It’s located on Tibet’s northern slope and was first climbed by George Mallory in 1921. The difficulty of this route varies depending on where you start your ascent from; however, most people choose not to start at its lowest point because it requires crossing over glaciers that can be dangerous due to their shifting nature. You can trek to Everest base camp in just 14 days.

Supplemental oxygen has been shown to not only reduce exhaustion during the climb, but is also a crucial safety measure against altitude sickness and frostbite. We supply climbers with 5 bottles as part of the full-service cost for this expedition. Except Everest expedition SummitClimb offers Ama Dablam, Manaslu, Lobuche, Island Peak, Baruntse expedition too.
