As thrilling as adventures can get, the Everest Climbing is one of the most daring trips in the Himalayas. Also known as the Everest expedition, the trip explores the highest region in the entire world. As the name suggests, Everest Climbing takes you to the literal top of the world at 8,848.86 meters. Apart from the surreal adrenaline, the views of the mountains and biodiversity of the Sagarmatha National Park are key attractions on the trip. To sum, the journey to the top of the world is a mix of physical challenges and unique experiences.
Firstly, the trip begins in Kathmandu, where climbers prepare for the expedition. Then, a short flight takes you to Lukla. Further, you enter the Sagarmatha National Park and trek for a few days to reach the Everest Base Camp (5380m). Reserve days at Base Camp you will Climb Lobuche East Peak (6119m). Hereon, the difficulty level increases drastically as you enter the snowy domain of Mt. Everest. The route to the summit of Mt. Everest follows through Camp I, II, III, and IV successively. However, there will be plenty of acclimatization sessions and regular ascents and descents between these camps. Camp I (6400m), Camp II (6750m), Camp III (7100m), and Camp IV (8400m) serve as temporary stops on the ascent. Finally, the grand climb to the top of Mt. Everest offers ecstatic views with unimaginable bliss.
The Everest Climbing is one of the hardest and longest trips in the Nepali Himalayas. So, climbers must be in excellent physical shape and have a great mental fortitude for the trip. In addition, the climbing equipment also must be in top-notch condition. Also, altitude sickness is a great challenge to all climbers, and they must be prepared for frequent and lengthy acclimatization. Likewise, it is best if the climbers have previous experience of peak climbing or mountain expedition. A short span of three months from April to June is ideal for the Everest expedition.

CAMP 1: 20000FT. (6,400M)
This camp 1 is situated in the flat area of endless snow-deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun’s reflection from this place we get a warm and heating ambiance at this place. In the night we listen to the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk to reach camp 2.
CAMP 2. 21000FT. (6,750M)
This camp 2 is situated at the height of 21000ft, which is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. The weather is here is good but bad clouds roll in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp two.

Entrance fees of Heritage Sites of Nepal:
Nepal is famous for world heritage sites, Tourist attractions places, and monuments areas. Tourism is the second income source of the country. Entrance fees, National park fees, climbing royalties are the backbone of the Nepalese economy.

The people of South Asian countries (SAARC) have to pay fewer entrance fees in comparison to tourists from other countries. Many tourists want to see the typical Nepalese art and cultural places, happily paying the entrance fee because it is worth paying to visit.
The 7 heritage sites of Kathmandu valley are amazing. Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Changunarayan have their own history. They are not only rich in art and architecture but also fountain spiritual places of Hinduism and Buddhism. Most of the constructions made have a tantric background and old history. Not only the Kathmandu valley but other parts of the country are also rich in nature and history. Lumbini (Birth Place of Gautam Buddha) Chitwan National park, Pokhara, Nagarkot, Trekking trails, Peak climbing, Expedition are the main tourist destination in Nepal and main income sources of the country.

Kathmandu Valley is the first and foremost destination that you should not miss out on. The seven UNESCO world heritage sites in the valley, namely, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, and Changunarayan.

There you will be able to enjoy the serene and peaceful nature with the Annapurna ranges in the backdrop.

Internet and Communication in the country
You do not have to worry about not getting communication service or Internet service in Nepal. In recent years, the internet and communication services have drastically progressed and developed. While in the major cities and tourist destinations, you can use free Wi-Fi including many of the cafes and restaurants. Similarly, almost every hotel and some public areas provide Wi-Fi services. However, Wi-Fi is not always available in remote areas in the Himalayas and rural Hilly regions.
In such situations, a cellular connection is the best option for both Internet access and communication.

While the autumn is neither too hot nor too cold and the skies are always clear. The winter season brings snow in the Himalayan region and some parts of the hilly region as well. Finally, during the monsoon season, the entire country experiences heavy rainfall except in the rain shadow areas of Upper Dolpo and Mustang.

Climbing on “the roof of the world” as Everest is sometimes called is not calm trekking. It definitely does not mean a stroll along picturesque snow-covered slopes and for inexperienced or with a minimum risk of an illness people might be even dangerous. That is why acclimatization in the Base Camp may be quite long and last up to 40 days. During that time climbers are cared for by Sherpas until their organisms do not get used to the tension and lack of oxygen. Only then is it possible to continue climbing. Usually, the 50th day is a summit day the most exciting and challenging part of the ascent, especially if the weather is nice. On average, as far as tourists are concerned, the whole expedition lasts about 58 days from the arrival to Kathmandu to summiting the peak. When everything is settled and the climbers feel well, the ascent to the top takes about seven days. The way back to the Base Camp takes about 5 days.
