This program is for people who want to make it to the highest peak in the world, Mt. Everest, reaching 8,848 meters (29,029 ft) above sea level. We have chosen the Tibetan or North Col. route for our ascent. During the approximation, we will visit the heart of the great Tibetan plateau, get acquainted with the locals as well as their admirable culture and religion, and finally reach the Base Camp in Rongbuk. Mt. Everest, located in the Himalayan range, over the Tibetan plateau, in the border between Nepal and Tibet, was first climbed on May 29, 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Sherpa.
With its 8,848 meters (29,029 ft) above sea level, it is the highest peak in the world, and the most prized of the “Seven Summits”, that includes the highest summits of each continent. Most Nepalis refer to Mt. Everest as “Sagarmatha”, which means Goddess of the Skies, while Tibetans –including the people from Sherpa, in the North of Nepal– refer to it as “Chomolungma”, which means Mother of the World. The mountain was given its official name “Everest” after Sir George Everest, a geographer and topographer from Wales well-known for describing the topography of that isolated region.
