Description

The Expedition begins when you arrive in Kathmandu where you meet the staff of Mount Mania  in the airport and transfer you to the hotel. The next day, we arrange an introduction section with other climbing members & Expedition staff; we make your Tibet visa and other necessary documents for the Everest North Col Expedition. After 3 days, we drive you towards the Nepal-Tibet border up to the Friendship Bridge through Pashang Lamu Highway, where the Chinese liaison officer and Chinese transport keeps us awaiting there. The expedition gears go with truck while we travel by Land cruiser 4wd. We take time to acclimatize for one night at Kerung (2700m) and two nights at Saga (4400m), which also gives us the chance to trek up to high hills nearby there.

The next day, we drive to Tingri (4350m) where we spend further two nights acclimatizing. Then we drive Tingri to Base camp 5400m the along rough way with jerking & bouncing through grassy plain leading up to Everest Base Camp, which is also called Chinese base camp. We set up our camp at Chinese Base Camp and stay two nights or more, depending on how everyone feels. We also make schedules of the yaks by that time. Base camp is a temporary but comfortable affair with our Nepali cook and dining tent. Now the two-day walk towards the advanced base camp (ABC) begins. After walking for 2 days, we reach ABC 6400m along with the Yaks. From ABC the route goes to the East Rongbuk (Everest Base) glacier and after that there are easy snow slopes to the North Col at 7070m. You have permitted to only North Col and this call Everest North Col Expedition.
