Departure Detail
Spring Season:
Kathmandu Arrival Date: April 08, 2025
Expedition Fixed Departure Date: April 11, 2025

Mt. Everest North Col Expedition up to 7000m. in Tibet region, which is ideal expedition for climber who intend to climb Everest North Col Expeditions in the future. If you have some doubts about your being ready to try and climb over 8000 meter or Mt. Everest, then the best option for you is to try yourself on a less difficult and dangerous route Everest North Col (7,000m.). Our expedition starts from Kathmandu and we are all meeting in the Cultural Treks and Expedition office at Thamel. We drive from Kathmandu to Kyirong (2,700m.) and Tingri. We have 2 day of rest in Tingri for acclimatization and the next day we drive to Everest Base Camp (5,200m.). After 2-3 rest days in base camp we start walk with yaks to Advance Base Camp (5,800m.). The next day we proceed to advance base camp (6,400m.) where we set up a camp for whole time of expedition. After some day we start to climb the North Col (7000m.). It usually takes 5-7 hours up and 2-3 hours down to advance base camp.

Climbing Sherpa for Mt. Everest North Col 7000m:
We will serve highly professional, well trained and qualified expert climbing Sherpas for the your expeditions. Many climbers avoid Sherpa guides for the climbing and would like to climb Alpine style but they have been found to facing many hindrances on their way. If you take Sherpas along with you on the expedition, they are very useful in your each and every step of support, which makes your climbing easier to restore your strained energy and it gives you vigorous strength for your next day’s climbing and make it successful trip. Most of the groups, who have gone with the Sherpa guides on the expedition, are found to be succeeding as per our past experiences. So we suggest you to operate your expeditions along with the climbing guides (Sherpa).

Note:
If you have your own private group or team, please e-mail us to know the price and details of expedition.
If you are alone and looking for a group to join then visit our fixed-departure expedition information.
