The term "Being on top of the world" for numerous people is just an alternative expression of excitement or happiness, but there are individuals who take the phrase as it is and turn it into a reality. The triumph of humans in the wilderness, Mount Everest Expedition is the most challenging and exhilarating adventure in the Himalayas that thousands of expedition climbers try to climb every year. For some, it is a fantasy they do not dare to dream, while some have set it to be the pursuit of their life. Everest Expedition is a victory that every climber around the globe desires in their expedition journey. 

The first-ever attempt to conquer the giant mountain Everest was made in 1921 by a British expedition team. Following that, multiple expedition teams attempted to summit the top of the world, but none of it were successful. Until May 29, 1953 A.D. when Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Nepali Sherpa, became the first adventurers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on earth, at an elevation of 8848 m. It is possible to reach the summit of Everest from two sides: the southern part and the northern part. The southern route to the summit lies in Nepal, while the Northern side lies in Tibet. 

Here, the Everest Expedition journey from the Southern col brings you to the most visited region of Nepal, the Everest region. Taking you through the numerous Sherpa settlements, forests, hills, waterfalls, ancient old monasteries, and Gompas, the journey first leads you to the base camp of the World's highest peak, Everest Base Camp. An absolute adventure commences from the base camp as you head toward the summit of the peak, Mount Everest crossing Camp I, II, III, and IV. But, as you are already assuming, the journey is not as smooth and doable as it sounds. Many climbers have encountered death, while many lost their companions while achieving their dream of being on top of the world.

The courage, determination, and training it takes to reach the summit and turn the dream into reality is not something that everyone is capable of. If you have the required experience and bravery to conquer the top of the world, then all you need is the guidance of the right company and the support of the hero of the Himalayas, Sherpa, and you're all set to start this journey of your lifetime.

                                          Best time for Everest Expedition in 2025 and 2026

                                          Weather is an extremely crucial factor for the successful completion of any kind of journey to any place, especially when it comes to an expedition journey, it is a matter of life and death and the weather conditions must never be overlooked. 

                                          At the Everest Summit, weather conditions are inherently harsh and tolerant to change. It is hard to determine the right time because of unpredictable weather, extreme climate conditions, and changing temperatures. Throughout the year, the best and ideal time to summit Mt. Everest is in the spring season. The period between April and May is the best time for mountaineers to summit the peak. During this season, the peak is mostly visible and clear, and the temperature is not as harsh as other seasons. Besides spring, autumn, from September to October, is another ideal time for ascending Mount Everest.

                                          It is also the peak time for the ascent when climbers around the globe set off on the expedition journey. Also, as it comes after the monsoon, monsoon clouds are absent, making the weather clear and suitable for the climb. The average temperature at the summit is -36 degrees Celsius in the coldest month of January, which can drop up to -60 degrees. In the warmest month of July, the average temperature is -19 degrees Celsius.

                                          Food during the Everest Expedition

                                          It is crucial to consume healthy and nutritious food while you're on a voyage, especially when it's a long expedition like this one. We consider healthy and nutritious food to be a pivotal component to the overall success of the expedition. During the trek, up to the Base camp, you'll be having meals at the teahouse/lodge along the trail. The breakfast generally includes traditional bread, eggs, porridge, and soups, while lunch and dinner include local dal Bhat (rice, lentils, beans, and green vegetables). You can also choose from the western menu at the beginning of the trek. 

                                          As for the Mount Everest Expedition, meals are prepared by our experienced expedition cooks. Making sure the food we provide is hygienic and suits your palate, we offer all varieties of food including continental and local Nepali items. At the base camps, Breakfast includes eggs, bread, porridge, etc. Lunch includes rice, lentils, beans, green vegetables, chapattis, bread, tinned meat, and fish items. As for the main meal, you can choose from local or western varieties. During the actual mountain climbing, the foods are mostly dry, including chocolate, cheese, nuts, and muesli items. You could also bring comfort foods from home like chocolates, energy gel, power bars, dry fruits, candies, other snacks, etc.

                                          Accommodation during Mount Everest Expedition

                                          For the first few days of the trekking part of the journey, you can get a nice clean room with facilities like; warm beds, in-room bathrooms, hot shower, charging plugs, Wi-Fi connection, etc. As you move to a higher elevation, the facilities get limited, and the room comes without facilities like; in-room bathrooms, charging plugs, and internet connections. As for the expedition part, you'll be provided with a high-quality, extreme weather tent for every two climbers. 

                                          At base camp, there will also be a heated dining room, kitchen tent, toilet tent, shower tent, etc, and more for your comfort.

                                          Everest Expedition Difficulty    

                                          It is a given that climbing the highest mountain in the world is extremely challenging, both physically and mentally. The freezing temperature, low oxygen, huge gears, heavy clothes, and little to no sleep are the few things among many that make this expedition journey extremely tough.

                                          Other factors like altitude sickness, hunger, sleep deprivation, fatigue, and frostbite are additional risks of the expedition. Anyone who is setting off on the expedition journey must be technically and physically well-trained. The climber must have good knowledge of using technical gears like; ice axe, fixed ropes, crampons, etc.

                                          It is also required to have previous climbing experience on peaks above 6500m for the Everest expedition, which is one of the prerequisites set by the Nepal government. Along with that, you must submit a document approved by a professional physician certifying your fitness and good health condition. 

                                          Everest Expedition Training for 2025 and 2026

                                          Training is another critical factor for a successful summit of Everest. It is necessary to train specifically for the climb of Everest for at least a year, building up stable fitness. During your training, you will have to focus on your hike time, distance, and elevation gain.

                                          It is also very important to develop your mountain skills, such as the use of ice axe and crampon, rope handling, ascending and descending, route finding, crevasse rescue, avalanche forecasting, high altitude sickness prevention, diagnosis and treatment, snow camping, and survival skills.

                                          During your training period, you’ll have to ace all the mountaineering skills along with their technicality. All these skills will come in extremely handy to you during your climb. Also, it is crucial not to rush anything at the time of training or real climbing. You must learn to have patience and trust in your Sherpas at times of crisis on an expedition. 

                                          Everest Expedition Permits Cost and Requirements

                                          As it is the highest mountain in the world, climbing it is not so simple or easy.

                                          All climbers are required to purchase rescue insurance. It is a special type of travel insurance that covers emergency rescue and evacuation from the mountain in case of crisis and emergency. 

                                          After you meet all the requirements, there are a few permits you need to issue to climb Everest. The first permit is climbing royalty for Mount Everest which costs
