Fequenty Asked Questions (FAQs)

When is the best time to climb Mount Everest?

As an experienced climbing operator we suggest you climb in the spring season. Spring is the best time to climb Mount Everest. From April to June when the so-called “climbing window” opens. It is the best time to attempt an ascent to the summit.

It is difficult to predict the weather of the mountain but as the past years experience climbing starts from April and ends at late May to early June. Climbing in the autumn season is also possible in the months of September to October.

How long does it take to climb Everest?

Everest climbing takes about 60 days to complete. Acclimatization and preparation of climbing at Base Camp may be quite long and last up to 40 days. You will climb several times to different camps without oxygen.

Usually the 50th day is a summit day, the most exciting and challenging part of the ascent. It depends on the weather. If everything is settled and the climbers feel well, the ascent to the top takes about seven days and five days to descend to the Base Camp.

Additional Information

Everest Climbing Story

Perhaps the most colorful story about the early attempts on Mt Everest Expedition is the one involving Captain J. Noel and his native companions. He disguised himself as a Mohammedan and made a journey from Darjeeling through Northwest Sikkim and round the north of Kanchenjunga in an attempt to reach Everest. Unfortunately, not even the disguise could see him through. His mission was out short just sixty five km from Everest when a posse of Tibetan soldiers forced them to turn back.

Although there are a dozen or so routes on Mt. Everest, we follow the classical route, traditionally the most reliable way to the summit on this breathtaking Mount Everest Expedition.

Mt Everest Climbing Difficulty & Preparation

Climbing over the world’s highest mountain is a very difficult task. You need to be well prepared for the successful ascent of Mount Everest. There will come so many obstacles and risks even of a life threat.

Many climbers who have a dream of climbing Mt Everest need to understand the risk of high altitude climbing. An experience of climbing mountains is necessary. A climber has to devote a long time to build stamina and train to get used to harsh conditions such as low temperatures and low-oxygen environment at higher altitudes.

It is worth remembering that the most difficult thing is to get by in the “death zone” at 8 000 metres above the sea level. The body starts to rebel against the lack of oxygen. Even the strongest climbers may experience impaired judgement, strokes, heart attacks or difficulty to overcome altitude sickness.

To achieve the success over the Everest, climbers have to acclimate to the lower rate of oxygen in the air before they attempt to get to the peak. Climbing from base camp to high camps like camp I or camp II for a short time makes the body comfortable at high altitude. It allows their body to produce more hemoglobin that carries oxygen from lungs to the rest of the body.

The Mount Everest climbing expedition is well prepared with an experienced guide. Without the early preparation, climbing over Everest is almost impossible. So, join us to make your Everest Expedition successful without any problem.

Trip Reviews (2)

Starting on the Everest expedition holds monumental significance for any mountaineer, but for our team, being the first Albanians to attempt it elevated its importance even further. Extensive preparation preceded our journey, coupled with a crucial decision in selecting the right support company. I cannot overstate the significance of having a prepared and skilled support team, which proved instrumental in our success. With Life Dream Adventure, we found exceptionally qualified Sherpas, stellar management, and forged lasting friendships. This supportive atmosphere facilitated each member of our group reaching the summit—an extraordinary achievement. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend Life Dream Adventure.
