In 2019 Himalayan Ascent will be undertaking our eighth expedition to Mount Everest, following the successes of past expeditions since 2010. The ultimate dream of most mountaineers is to one day take on the biggest mountaineering challenge possible – climbing Mount Everest – and Himalayan Ascent is here to help you make that dream a reality!
Of course, turning the dream into reality requires a lot of hard work, and Himalayan Ascent will only accept climbers who have the requisite skills and level of experience.
The aim of Himalayan Ascent’s Mount Everest Expedition is to provide the necessary framework for expedition members to have a safe, enjoyable trip, with the best possible chance of summiting. The key components of this framework include:
- Employing an experienced, strong, caring and professionally trained team of Sherpa guides on the mountain, all with previous Everest experience/summits.
- Creating a small, cohesive team of climbers and Sherpas
- Strictly vetting the calibre of expedition members
- Providing a comfortable base camp
- Staying healthy
We will tackle Mount Everest via the South Col and South East ridge route. You’ll feel like you’re climbing through history as you pass through and across such infamous features as the Khumbhu Icefall, the Western Cwm, the Yellow Band and the Geneva Spur. Once you’re on the summit push, you’ll look back in awe towards Makalu, Lhotse, and when you’re standing on the South Summit you’ll stare across towards the Hillary Step and the true summit, and know that your dream is within reach.
Our 2019 Mount Everest expedition will be led and managed by Sumit Joshi.
