ABOUT Everest (8848m) Expedition North Side

Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world standing at an elevation of 29028ft. (8848m.) from the sea level. Mount Everest is situated in Samarmatha national park (on the north of Khumbu). Mount Everest is the mountain which all mountaineers dream to summit it and it is a place where legends live. Mount Everest is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure.  To stand at the pinnacle of the earth is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. The climbers who climbed this mountain felt they are standing over the cloud in the sky. Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norge Sherpa was human being who climbed this peak on May 29, 1953, after a long relentless effort.

Climbing Everest from the Tibet side is relatively easier. Still, Everest expeditions encounter many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion. Un-rivaled experiences of our team and our focus and attention to details combined with our strength and dedication add a tangible degree of safety, expertise and guidance – our guardianship on the mountain makes all the differences between a difficult expedition and an enjoyable one. The success of an expedition is often determined by factors planned well in advance of the actual climbing; the many years of our Sherpa’s dedication and expertise have led to a considerable increase in the proportion of success.

An attempt on these majestic peaks is an enormous undertaking which requires a huge amount of dedication and determination: Sherpa Shepherds is here to be your guardian on the mountain. Allow us to lead you on your journey of imagination. We will lead you up the mountain as only a SHERPA CAN. As pioneer guided service to ascent Mount Everest, Sherpa Shepherds provides all the kinds of logistic services by using our vast experiences, dedication devotion and leadership development programs, we strive to impact the lives of prospective climbers and adventure seekers in a way that brings about lasting changes, by creating the opportunity for them to have a lifetime experiences and accomplish formidable goals.
