What to expect during the Everest expedition in 2024?

Since Mt. Everest was first conquered by a human in 1953, many have seen the dream to reach this place, and many have successfully achieved it, too. At the same time, many people have also failed to reach the top of Everest. The good news is that climbing Mt. Everest today is much more possible if you are supported by the right team.

We, Moon Himalaya Adventure, are one of the best Everest expedition companies in Nepal. Following our Everest expedition 66 days itinerary, you are more likely to reach the summit and return safely. From the moment you sign up for Mt. Everest expedition with us, our team will guide you to the top of the summit and back.

Climb with veteran Sherpas who have summited Mount Everest numerous times before. The journey starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. You will spend three nights here, preparing for the expedition and exploring the city. Then, fly to Lukla and begin the trekking adventure.

Following the rugged trail within the Sagarmatha National Park, you will cross many hanging bridges over rivers. The trail gradually ascends from one Sherpa village to another, offering a glimpse of their daily lifestyle and culture. Enjoy stunning landscapes as the trail continues to the base camp.

Spend nights in lodges along the trekking route. Upon reaching the base camp, our team will be all ready to welcome you. You will spend numerous nights here acclimatizing. Just before we begin our main push towards the Everest summit, a local monk will do a puja ceremony for our successful climbing.

Everest South Col route: climbing strategy

Everest Base Camp: 5,364 m/17,598 ft

You will spend the longest time at the Everest Base Camp to acclimatize. We will make our permanent camp here for the expedition. The weather mostly remains stable at the base camp. EBC is a glacier. We may see our tents stir as the ice moves and melts, but it will not affect us in any way.

The area is surrounded by Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, and the Khumbu Icefall. In the peak climbing season, the base camp is packed with tents and mountaineers. The environment is quite bustling at the same time quite soothing.

Camp I: 5,900 m/19,357 ft

From the Everest Base Camp to Camp I, we will cross the infamous Khumbu Icefall. It is one of the most specialized sections on the southern side of Mount Everest. The Khumbu Icefall is 2,000 ft moving ice with deep chasms, transcending serac, and torrential slides off Everest's west shoulder. During the climbing period, we will do a few climbing rotations to Camp I to acclimatize.

Camp II: 6,400 m/20,997 ft

Camp II is located at the lower part of the west edge in a side moraine. It is a protected area by the huge face of Lhotse. All mountaineers set their primary camp here for the climbing duration. There are sleeping tents, kitchen tents, dining tents, and washroom tents. Above the EBC, Camp II is the central place that supports the journey towards Camp II and beyond. This is the second place where we will spend a long time after the base camp.

Camp III: 7,100 m/23,294 ft

From Camp II to Camp III, the route is tricky, and the high altitude shows its effect on the climbers. We are yet not using supplemental oxygen. The route is steep and icy. We will use fixed ropes.

The slopes can range from 30 to 45 degrees. It is a long climb from Camp II to Camp III. We are most likely to spend two nights at Camp III for acclimatization before pushing further toward the summit.

South Col: 8,000 m/26,247 ft

South Col is what we call the moon, with Everest summit on the north and the Lhotse summit on the south. This is our last camp before the summit and the most challenging section of the entire expedition. We don't use supplemental oxygen while climbing to South Col.

Leaving Camp III, we will navigate two rock sections called the Yellow Band and Geneva Spur. The Yellow Band is an inter-layer of marble, phyllite, semi schist rock. Geneva Spur is an anvil-shaped rib of black stone.

We will cross both these sections using fixed ropes. South Col and above this place is also known as the death zone. Because of low oxygen levels, thin air, and exposure to cold, your body and mind will be most challenged from here onwards.

Mount Everest Summit: 8,848.8 m/29,031 ft

From South Col, we will walk up to the summit. We will begin climbing around 1:00 AM using our headlamps. The entire route will be fixed with the ropes. On the summit day, we will climb up and down for 9 to 13 hours. Our lead guide will find the best summit window, and we will follow home to the top of Mt. Everest.

Now, on the way, we have to cross the Balcony, the Hillary Step, and the south summit before reaching the central panel. The climbing route to the true summit is all snow slopes. At this point, the adrenaline is what keeps us moving.

After reaching the summit, we will take a couple of pictures, enjoy the view, and soon begin descending to Camp II. From here, we will further descend to the base camp and return to Lukla. The support crew will help us clean the camps before we leave them.

Base Camp facilities with Moon Himalaya Adventure

We, Moon Himalaya Adventure, offer the best base camp service for our climbers. With our well-maintained and regularly updated tents, equipment, and interior, we make sure our climbers get the highest level of comfort and rest during their time at the Everest Base Camp.

We believe the better you rest at the base camp, the better you will perform on the mountains, so everything is thoughtfully planned and designed.

We use the best alpine tents. Our climbers and supporting team get spacious tents for dining and sleeping at the base. Compared to the usual tents provided by other expedition companies in Nepal, our tents are basically luxury.

To make it more homely, we line the floors with alpine carpets and decorate the space with tiny bits and bubs. All the sleeping tents will have bright LED lights, a chair, and comfortable bedding with electric liners, soft pillows, and high-quality blankets. It is nothing less than a hotel room at the base camp.

Our dining tent is also well-insulated and fully carpeted. This is also our common area where you will have briefings, parties, and socializing time. We also have a lounge area where we can watch movies on the projected full-sized screen and enjoy our time catching up with the team.

    Useful InformationGood to Know

    Altitude Sickness

    The Everest expedition includes risks of altitude sickness (acute mountain sickness- AMS). It can happen to anyone regardless of their fitness, experience, and age.

    The main reason for altitude sickness is the failure of the body to timely adjust to reduce oxygen levels at high elevations. Therefore, we spend numerous days acclimatizing before we begin the final push towards the Everest summit.

    We have divided altitude sickness into three categories- mild/moderate altitude sickness, high altitude cerebral edema (HACE), and high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE). Below, we have described them a little for your information:

    Mild/moderate altitude sickness:

    It is the first phase of altitude sickness when you see mild to moderate symptoms like headache, nausea, insomnia, fatigue, vomiting, dizziness, loss of appetite, and difficulty breathing.

    These symptoms typically develop within the first 6 to 12 hours after ascending to high altitudes. You can control these symptoms by resting, hydrating your body, and taking over-the-counter medicines.

    Likewise, moderate altitude sickness cases usually resolve within 1 to 2 days of descending to lower altitudes. Do not ignore altitude sickness because if it is left untreated, it can progress to severe altitude sickness and can be life-threatening in some conditions.

    High altitude cerebral edema (HACE):

    High-altitude cerebral edema occurs if fluid accumulates in the brain, which causes swelling and increased intracranial pressure.

    • The symptoms of HACE are confusion, difficulty walking, severe headaches, hallucinations, loss of consciousness, altered mental status, and seizures.
    • Immediate medical attention and emergency descent are necessary.

    High altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE):

    In the case of high-altitude pulmonary edema, fluid accumulates in the lungs, which harms oxygen flow in the body and leads to respiratory distress.

    • Symptoms include severe shortness of breath, persistent cough with pink or frothy sputum, chest tightness, rapid heartbeat, and blue or gray discoloration of the skin and lips (cyanosis).
    • Emergency descent with supplemental oxygen therapy and prompt treatment is required to control HAPE

    When Mount Everest is climbed?

    The most favorable time of the year to climb Mount Everest is from April to June. These months offer ideal climbing windows that allow mountaineers to reach the summit and return safely. The possibility of snow storms, avalanches, and unsteady glacial routes is less in this period.

    Likewise, the trail to Everest Base Camp is fantastic in these months. You will see nature thriving with blooming rhododendron forests, cascading waterfalls, gushing rivers, and beautiful verdant hills. By May and June, the region warms up, so there could be some clouds.

    Regardless, the weather is most predictable from May to June, which makes it ideal for the Everest expedition. The climate is also not that cold in these months. And not to mention, the mountain views are phenomenal with bright, long days.

    Food & Drinks

    Throughout the Everest expedition, you will get three meals a day- breakfast, lunch, and dinner. While trekking to the base camp, the meals are given as per the menu of the lodges. You will have a variety of food to choose from.

    Dal bhat, porridge, thukpa, momo, noodles, Sherpa stew, rice with curries, chapati, soups, and sandwiches are some of the most found options. In villages like Lukla, Phakding, and Namche Bazaar, you will also get pizza, burgers, pasta, steak, etc.

    Likewise, at the base camp and above it, all the meals are prepared and cooked by our kitchen staff. We curate the menu as per our client's palate, considering any dietary restrictions. All the meals will be rich in carbohydrates, protein, fat, and other nutrients.

    Do not be surprised to see gourmet coffee, a range of teas, hot chocolate, cold beverages, sushi, roast chicken, and fresh fish items on the menu. Apart from the three main meals, we also provide snacks and hot/cold drinks to our team around the clock to ensure they are maintaining their energy and strength.

    At the base camp, we will have professional chefs and kitchen staff for additional support. Likewise, at Camp I and Camp II, a dedicated team of mountain cooks will take care of your meals. Above Camp II, we will carry packed meals, snacks, and energy drinks.


    Spend nights in the lodges during trekking. We will book basic but clean and comfortable lodges along the trail. The rooms are generally twin-shared in the lodges, along with a common washroom. Hot showers, charging, and WiFi costs additional money in the basic lodges.

    Get a solar charger for your mobile and camera. It will be a much more efficient option. Also, pack power banks and spare batteries.

    Get a Nepali tourist sim for the journey. Ncell has base network coverage in the Khumbu region. You may get a network every now and then at the base camp, too.

    Hot showers may not be available all the time. So, pack ample wet wipes/body wipes to stay refreshed.

    At the Everest Base Camp, every member of the team will get single sleeping tents for their privacy and comfort. Likewise, from the base camp onwards, the sleeping tents are shared between two climbers. The tents will be big enough to accommodate two people comfortably.

    Our porters will take care of setting the tents throughout the Everest expedition. Similarly, there will be washroom tents, male/female toilet tents, and dining tents. All of our tents are alpine-graded and sturdy to withstand the unpredictable weather of the Himalayas.

    Supplement oxygen

    We will be equipped with ample supplemental oxygen cylinders for the climbing period. We provide 8 oxygen cylinders to every climber. Likewise, our Sherpas and porters will have their own oxygen tanks. For the summit push, we use 2-liter oxygen cylinders that allow efficient climbing. You can also buy additional oxygen cylinders.


    Up to the Everest Base Camp, we will get an okayish network to stay connected with our friends and families. Buy a local tourist sim with ample data for the journey. Likewise, we will have satellite phones and walkie-talkies to stay connected with the base camp as we go above. It will cost you money to use satellite phones. We highly recommend you have some spare cash with you while in the mountains.

    Travel Insurance

    You cannot do the Everest expedition without travel insurance. It is a compulsory document and must cover helicopter evacuation and medical bills. If you get injured or sick or come across adverse weather, then the travel insurance is used to immediately rescue you from the mountain.

    Equipments InformationThings to Know

    FAQsEverest Expedition - 8848.86m FAQs
    • The Everest expedition takes around 60 days which includes the trek to base camp, acclimatization rotations, and the final summit push.

    • You should be physically fit to climb Mount Everest. Due to the strenuous nature of the climb, it is important that climbers be in good physical condition. Climbers should engage in regular cardio and strength training exercises, including hiking, running, weight lifting, and endurance training.

    • Indeed, altitude sickness is a major concern for those undertaking the Everest expedition in Nepal. Altitude sickness, if not treated quickly, can be fatal for climbers, thus it's important for them to gradually acclimate to the high altitude.

    • Mountaineering boots, crampons, ice axes, ropes, harnesses, tents, and sleeping bags are only some of the specialist items used by climbers. High-quality equipment, designed to withstand the harsh conditions of Mount Everest, is crucial.

    • Climbing Mount Everest without a guide is not permitted in Nepal. To scale a mountain, climbers need to be a part of an expedition team and requires a permit.

    • Attempting to summit Everest in Nepal without prior climbing experience is strongly prohibited. High-altitude climbing expertise, technical competence, physical fitness, and acclimatization are all necessary for successful ascents.

    • Having travel and medical insurance that includes coverage for high-altitude mountaineering, emergency medical evacuation, and emergency helicopter rescue is crucial.

    • Climbing Everest can be risky because of the high altitude, thin air, and technical difficulties that can arise. However, dangers can be minimized with proper planning, training, and preventive safety measures.
