Everest expedition from Tibet side has become more popular among the mountaineers to make their dream come true to stand on the summit of Everest. Among the several reasons, low cost of royalty and other basic mountaineering services as well as the easy route to the summit are the key factors to attract more Everest climbers from North Col. than from the South Col.
Since the earliest Himalayan expeditions the North Ridge has represented staggering achievement. Reinhold Messner had this to say. “……the north side of Everest was to me one of the most historic and interesting places of all”.
The route is complex and difficult and the summit day long and tiring but the allure of climbing the Everest from the Tibet side is always magical. The Base camp is established at Rongbuk glacier at 5180m though the real climbing starts at camp 1 at an elevation of 7000m.
