Expedition in Nepal

Overview

Mount Everest  Expedition (8848m/29,029ft) is the tallest mountain on the earth which is lies at the border of Nepal and Tibet. The highest mountain was Named Everest by Sir Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor-general of India in honors of his predecessor Sir George. The majestic Mount Everest was ultimately conquered by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa hailing from Nepal along with his New Zealander counterpart Sir Edmund Hillary at 11:30 AM on May 29, 1953 via the South Col route.

Mount Everest Expedition routes:has two main climbing routes, the southeast ridge from Nepal and the northeast ridge from Tibet, as well as many others less frequently climbed routes. Of the two main routes, the southeast ridge is technically easier and is the more frequently used route. It was the route used by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953 and the first recognized of fifteen routes to the top by 1996. This was, however, a route decision dictated more by politics than by design as the Chinese border was closed to the western world in the 1950s after the People's Republic of China took over Tibet.

Most attempts are made during May before the summer monsoon season. As the monsoon season approaches, a change in the jet stream at this time pushes it northward, thereby reducing the average wind speeds high on the mountain. While attempts are sometimes made after the monsoons in September and October, when the jet stream is again temporarily pushed northward, the additional snow deposited by the monsoons and the less stable weather patterns makes climbing extremely difficult.
