About Trip

For those with a thirst for adventure and the courage to pursue their dreams, climbing Mount Everest represents the ultimate achievement, with the summit at an altitude of 8,848 meters (29,029ft) offering boundless happiness and satisfaction.

Mount Everest, known as "Sagarmatha" in Nepali and "Chomolungma" in Tibetan, is the highest mountain on Earth, standing at an altitude of 8,848.86 meters (29,031.7 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Mahalangur Himalaya range of the Himalayas in the Nepali and Tibet border, with a latitude of 27.9881° N and a longitude of 86.9253° E. Climbing Mount Everest is a difficult and challenging endeavor that requires a high level of mountaineering experience, physical and mental preparation, proper equipment, training, and a responsible team. Despite the challenges, reaching the summit of Mount Everest is a remarkable achievement that many people dream of but few ever achieve.

The history of climbing Mount Everest dates back to May 29, 1953, when Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary made the first successful ascent from the Nepali side via the South Col standard route. Since then, Everest has become famous all over the world and draws a large number of mountaineering enthusiasts, adventure-seekers, and record-breakers every year. However, making a successful attempt requires careful planning and preparation, as well as a significant investment of time and money.

To achieve a successful ascent, most climbers trek to Everest Base Camp, which is located at an altitude of 5,380 meters (17,600 feet) above sea level. The journey from Kathmandu to base camp takes about 7-10 days and involves trekking through Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with scenic villages, monasteries, and cultivated farmlands along the way. Once at base camp, climbers typically spend several weeks adjusting to the altitude and preparing for the ascent. This involves several trips up to higher altitudes to help the body adapt to the low oxygen levels.

If you're interested in climbing Mount Everest, you can join a commercial organizer team that offers reasonable expedition costs and quality service. However, it's important to remember that climbing Everest is an extremely challenging undertaking and should not be taken lightly. It requires a high level of physical and mental fitness, as well as a willingness to face unpredictable weather and terrain conditions. Nevertheless, if you have the dedication and perseverance to make it to the top, reaching the summit of Mount Everest will be a lifetime experience and a testament to your strength and courage.

We have a fixed departure date for the 2023 Everest expedition: March 25, 2023.

We will depart from Kathmandu on March 25, 2023, for the Everest base camp. However, if you are not available or prefer to trek solo or from a different starting point, we are flexible and can help you plan a customized climbing itinerary. Just share your ideas with us and we will assist you in creating the best climbing experience.

Our climbing journey will begin in the first week of April with a Puja ceremony to honor the goddess mother Sagarmatha at the Everest base camp, ensuring a safe and successful climb. The following day, our team of guides will provide training on essential skills, such as crossing vertical and horizontal ladders on the Khumbu Icefall, climbing ice slopes using crampons, ice axes, and jumars (ascender devices), and self-rappelling.

Next, we will proceed to Lobuche High Camp, located at an altitude of 5,200 meters (17,060 ft) for a summit push of Lobuche East, which stands at an altitude of 6,119 meters (20,075 ft). After summiting Lobuche East, we will return to Everest Base Camp for a few days of rest and acclimatization before heading to Camp 1, which is situated at 6,065 meters. We will spend at least one to two nights at Camp 1 before returning to Base Camp to rest and enjoy delicious meals.

After a few days of rest at Base Camp for our recovery, we will prepare for Camp 2, which is located at 6,400 meters above sea level. We will stay there for 1 to 2 nights before returning to Base Camp to rest. Before making the final push to the summit, we will touch Camp 3, which is located at 7,100 meters above sea level, and spend one night there. After completing our climbing rotation, we will trek down to Dingboche or Pangboche to relax for some time. Then we will continue our trip to Base Camp for the final summit push. After checking the weather window, we will climb to Camp 2, where we will take a one-day rest. Afterward, we will climb to Camp 3 and Camp 4 at the South Col, which is located at an altitude of 7,920 meters above sea level, for the final summit push to reach the peak of 8,848.86 meters.

After reaching the summit, we will return to Camp 4, then to Camp 2, Base Camp, and either fly back to Kathmandu or trek down to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu. The entire climb typically takes around two months for a successful ascent of Mount Everest.

What Type Of Insurance Should I Get?

It is essential for foreign travelers to secure insurance coverage while trekking or climbing in Nepal. Although trekking in Nepal is generally safe, travel insurance is compulsory for mountaineering activities in Nepal. The trip can pose physical challenges and hazards, particularly at high altitudes where altitude sickness is prevalent among trekkers and climbers, especially those who have not acclimatized properly. Physical injuries can also occur on mountain trails or during climbing activities, and in emergency situations, foreign trekkers or climbers may need to be rescued by helicopter and transported to hospitals in Kathmandu, which can be costly if the traveler does not have insurance coverage.

We strongly recommend purchasing a travel insurance package that covers high altitudes up to 65,00 meters, potential medical issues, natural disasters, personal accidents, emergency helicopter evacuation, loss or damage of personal belongings, and trip cancellations. The minimum recommended coverage amount is USD 100,000. There are many insurance companies that offer travel insurance services online. You should compare plans to find the one that best meets your needs.

During this time of the year, trekking routes throughout the country are jam-packed with travelers from all around the world.

However, as mid-December is generally the holiday season in most countries, including the United States, there is a spike in the number of international tourists during early winter as well. Interestingly, to make the holiday season even more special, travel companies offer some of the best holiday destination packages during this time. So, be sure to take advantage of the best travel opportunities with the assistance of Himalayan Diamond Adventure.

Nonetheless, if you cannot make it in autumn, spring also allows for favorable conditions for trekking in Nepal. The warmer days and nights, lush plants and vegetation, and clear trekking trails during spring make the trek worthwhile. However, the downside is occasional rain and slightly higher temperatures in the lower elevations. All in all, after autumn, spring is the second-best time to trek in Nepal.

Best time to trek in Nepal:

Thousands of tourists visit Nepal every year to enjoy the picturesque nature and trek through the adventurous and diverse terrain. However, the best times to trek in Nepal are autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May). During these seasons, travelers are blessed with moderate temperatures and enjoyable weather conditions throughout the country.

As calm as it may seem, the challenging terrains of the Himalayas in Nepal can present trekkers with gruesome scenarios during harsh weather conditions. To avoid any unforeseen situations and to enjoy nature at its best, most trekkers prefer autumn for backpacking. However, it may not be the best time of the year to trek in Nepal for everyone. Some may prefer off-season trekking to avoid the crowds. Therefore, exploring the various seasons can help you choose a favorable time for trekking in Nepal based on your preferences.

Trekking Seasons in Nepal

Throughout the year, the landscape of Nepal experiences four seasons, each with its own uniqueness that brings significant changes to the natural environment. Below are some detailed insights into the four seasons in Nepal.

1. Spring Season (March-May)

Spring in Nepal lasts from March to May and is one of the preferred seasons for trekking throughout the country. During this time, the climate is moderate, with slightly higher temperatures reaching up to about 32°C (89°F) in the lower elevation regions and around 20°C (68°F) at higher altitudes. The sky is usually clear with mild days and occasional rain.

Spring brings a rejuvenation of nature. Flowers begin to blossom, trees become lusher with newly sprung leaves, and spring vegetation sprouts again. Likewise, the flora and fauna of the Himalayan terrain also resuscitate from the harsh winter. Overall, spring is considered a great time for trekking in Nepal due to the alluring freshness of nature.

2. Summer Season (June-August)

With the end of May, summer starts in Nepal and lasts from June to August, which is also the monsoon season in the country. During these months, the weather can be harsh, with scorching heat and heavy rain throughout the nation. The rising humidity and extreme hot weather conditions may restrict travelers from fully enjoying their trip.

Although the lower elevation regions experience harsh summers, the Himalayan terrains are not as brutal. In the mountain regions, temperatures can range from approximately 25°C to 12°C (77°F to 53°F). However, heavy rains can make trekking through rocky mountain terrain challenging, and the cloudy sky may obscure mountain views.

3. Autumn Season (September-November)

With the arrival of autumn from September to November, Nepal becomes a popular destination for trekking. During this season, the weather is usually pleasant with clear skies, moderate temperatures, and gentle sunshine throughout the day. However, early autumn may bring occasional light rainfall. As the season progresses into October and November, the monsoon season completely ends, and cooler weather conditions prevail.

Many people choose to trek to popular destinations such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, and Poon Hill during this season. Additionally, autumn is festival season in Nepal, and visitors can witness major celebrations such as Dashain and Tihar, which provide an opportunity to experience Nepali culture and traditions. Many travel packages are available for the best treks in Nepal during this season, and our travel experts can help you plan your trip to align with the festival season.

4. Winter Season (December-February)

Winter, which lasts from December to February, is the harshest season for trekking in Nepal. As the temperature drops in December, nights become chilly, and temperatures can reach around 9°C (48°F) during the day and below 0°C (32°F) during the night in higher altitudes. During peak winter, many high passes and trekking routes in the mountains are covered with dense fog and snow, increasing the risk of unexpected accidents.

Because of the risks of unpleasant trekking conditions, most travelers avoid trekking in the Himalayan terrains during the winter season. Additionally, most expeditions and mountain climbing, including trekking in the Everest region, also come to a halt during the harsh winter. Overall, it may not be the best time to trek due to the challenges presented by the weather conditions.
