Everest from south (Nepal, south col)

So much has already been written and continues to be written about it. Good and bad, fascinating, cautionary, electrifying, odd, disturbing, and interesting. You can think what you want, but it is and remains the mother of all mountains. It’s the mountain whose history of ascents is unsurpassed, bursting with drama, madness and heroics. The playground for the top climbers of our time and the life-long dream of so many climbers from around the world. It‘s not just a mountain. The Everest is a myth. And it makes you a hero.

We are the first western operator to run Mount Everest expeditions from both the North and the South at the same time. With the highest possible safety and quality standards and the comforting ressurance of dealing with a fully licensed and strictly tested Austrian expedition organizer.


Days 1-15
DAY 1: Arrival and get-together at the hotel in Kathmandu. Meet and greet the other participants while enjoying a beer in the hotel gardens. A great adventure awaits us. You can feel the tension rising. Soon we will embark on our journey and already there’s a feeling of pride and grandeur. DAY 2: Free day in Kathmandu. Those who do not yet know Kathmandu will love it. Relax in the comfortable hotel, shop and people watch in Thamel, enjoy the cultural program, or simply soak up the atmosphere. To each his own. DAY 3: Flight to Lukla. One of the most stunning flights worldwide with a beautiful view on the Himalayas. DAYS 4-14: Acclimatization at Lobuche. Trekking to and ascent with 2 nights in the summit area. The Sherpa team already starts preparing our high camp on Mount Everest. DAY 15: Trekking to our already prepared base camp on Mount Everest at about 5300m.
