    Everest Expedition Difficulty

    Summiting Everest is the most difficult part, but many adventurers dream to be at the top of the world. However, they have to understand the risk and gain some experience. Everest Expedition has to be prepared in detail but before ascending they have to devote a long time to build stamina and train to get used to harsh conditions. It is worth cherishing, that the most demanding it are to get by in the “death zone” at 8 000 meters above sea level. The body starts to rebel against the reduction of oxygen. Even the most skilled climbers may feel impaired judgment, strokes, heart attacks, or hard-to-win altitude sickness.

    The unique point of this journey lies in passing the Khumbu Icefall and the Lhotse Face. While Everest is recognized for its rough weather conditions and unpredictability, this glacier features crevasses and seracs scattered all over the way. With this in mind, The Himalayan Odyssey provides professional guiding services and gears required for prosperous ascending. We will be prepared to overcome difficulties while Climbing Mount Everest South Face.
