Mingma For DD 150x150Everest is popular as chomolangma in Tibet. The transportation facility in Tibet has made it easier to reach the base camp-5182m. Then the  treks start to Interim camp- 6187m and to Advanced base camp(ABC)-6492m. The real climbing starts from ABC to North Col or C1-7000m,  camp-2 at7500m and final camp or Camp 3 at 8300m.  The rocky part onto first step, second step and third step have made it more  popular and harder to climb on summit day.

 Tibet side is considered to be more easier compared to Nepal but climbing is never easy. we go there to enjoy our life, feel the nature and  live our life. The good part of climbing from north is we don't have to climb through scary and lives taking Khumbu Icefall times and again for  acclimatization. The way from ABC to final camp is very safe with altitude increment. But the final push is not that easy. Since we have to  pass through 3 different passes, it's tiring night and day. Sometimes, the traffic jam at second steps make us wait for long as in Hillary steps from south side, we may have to give up from there. Nevertheless, climbing Everest is everyone's dream but only few try and reach there. Be there with our team.
