Mt. Everest – South Col Route

Mt. Everest – South Col Route

$30000 per person

Mount Everest from the south side (Nepal) is by far the most popular route chosen by the climbers every year to summit the mountain. It was through the south route that Sir Edmund Hillary & Sir Tenzing
Norgay made the first ascent of the mountain on May 29, 1953. Once you get off Lukla’s tiny airstrip, the trek to the base camp is one of the surreal experiences that passes in the shadows of the Himalayan giants and sacred monasteries.
