Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world standing at an elevation of 29028ft. (8848m.) atop which the climbers feel as if they are standing over the cloud in the sky. Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa first climbed this peak on May 29, 1953, after a long relentless effort.
Everest Base camp is situated on the north of Khumbu glacier at a height of 18000ft. All the international Mt. Everest climbers assemble here during the starting and at the ending time of their climbing. Normally the climbing duration of this expedition lasts for 90 days. All the climbers who mass there at the base camp seem really busy with excitement for the preparation of their expedition to reach the summit.
Some climbers climb this mountain on their own risk without any climbing Sherpa guide; and some climbers go with their own climbing Sherpa guide. Most of the teams carry their own Internet, Satellite phone, Medical Doctor and rest of the modern requirements.
After the base camp, we have to cross crevasses, Seracs and ice blocks. Similarly we should face the way up having Chunks of ice as large as our houses where we should use fixed ropes and aluminum ladders to climb ahead camp 1(6400m).
