You can bet of those people thinking seriously of taking-on a once in a lifetime adventure, Everest and Nepal would rank as firm favourites. For trekking, climbing or a more serious expedition, only a handfull of mountains have the pull factor that the worlds highest mountain has.
Nepal is once again open to climbers on Everest. The restrictions, due to the April 2015 earthquake that took so many brave hearts, have finally been eased by the authorities. And whilst there are plans afoot to introduce restrictions on novice climbers, and to reduce the numbers on the mountain things are possible. You can dream on, or you can think about making your dreams a reality.
Think is the watchword though, think carefully and plan. Make sure your operator has the credentials and the experience before moving ahead. It is, after all likely to be the biggest climb of your life.
Go for Nepal Treks & Expedition might well cut it, with their Everest Expedition. In 2013 they had 100% success of with climbers who reached the high camp going on to make the summit, but even 80% of the climbers who joined the climb reached the summit of the highest peak on earth. That’s a good proposition.
Good Sherpa’s are key, this cannot be overstated, and Go for Nepal are clear about the quality of those they use and of the value proposition in using the right men. Their Sherpas not only assist with the climbers but in planning the routes, setting the camps and in maintaining a finest expedition base in town. It is not going to be a stroll in the park indeed it is a two-month long expedition.
Finding the right style of leadership for your experience level is integral in choosing an Everest expedition. But “Go for Nepal” must be doing something right as the 2013 wasn’t the only season with such results. They have had 100% success rates back as far as 2010, a year in which the first time climbers had reached the summit of two 8,000 meter peaks in 24 hours.
Go For Nepal Treks & Expedition is run by experienced Himalayan guides, that having worked the mountains for more than 15 years.
And if you fancy somewhere other than Everest, or maybe you consider this a step to far, they are not limited to Expedition style extremes. There is Makalu, Annapurna I, Mt. Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Dhaulagiri, Kanchenjunga, and Manaslu Expeditions to name a few, or crossover into Tibet and Mount Kailash. Do visit their site and don’t forget to consider them when planning your trek of a lifetime.
