Magic Mountains is pleased to present this once in a lifetime experience. We produce world-class assistance from Everest Base Camp (EBC) to all the other high camps of Mount Everest from its South face. We take care of you directly from the landing in Kathmandu.
The climbing Guides of our company are regularly reviewed, highly skilled, re-trained and appreciated for their experience and training throughout the business.
We take the most experienced staff and guides on this expedition. This is a stiff climb and errors can have severe outcomes, and this is why we concentrate largely on accident and safety prevention for both guides and clients on our Everest expedition.
No expedition is without danger and absolutely not one to the highest Mountain in the world. Nevertheless, we perform rigorous safety measures to decrease the risk. We would also like to say that our staff and guides are all hired under ethical criteria.
The expedition of Mount Everest has a varied and long history – from the first realization of the mountain to the attempts of Irvine, Mallory, Norton & co and ultimately the victorious struggle of the British and the impressive solo climbing of Reinhold Messner.
The Sagarmatha in Nepalese is recognized as Mount Everest throughout the world. It is the highest peak on earth, with an altitude of 8848m. The South face is known to lie in Nepal whereas the North face is in China’s independent state Tibet.
During the Great Trigonometry Survey of British India government in 1856, this world’s highest mountain was first officially measured and then identified as Peak XV confirmed with the height of 8840m. With the distance from the peak and simple technology, the height was arranged with remarkable accuracy – only 8m off from the altitude of 8848m.
Sir George Everest was the name of British Surveyor in 1856 (the General of British India during the survey period). Nepal and Tibet were closed to immigrants at the time, so it is fair to believe that local names of the peak were hidden.
Although not without disagreement even at the time, the name of the highest peak was chosen in his honor. The first climbing efforts were not likely until the 1920’s, and they stopped eventually in failure. The victory came only in 1953 from the Southside on the same route you will be practicing for this expedition.

Approaches to ABC from South (Nepal):
Through Khumbu region that leads to Glacier extending down to Lobuche (4900m), the south side can be approached. The journey begins with a quick flight to Lukla and from there, the trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m) leading to (36600m) Tengaboche, (4270m) Pheriche, (4910m) Lobuche, (5140m) Gorak Shep to (5364m) Everest South Base Camp. It normally takes 8 days to reach Advanced Base Camp from Kathmandu.
Climbing Routes South Side:
• South route is a trekking route with a few actual danger once past the Khumbu icefall apart of few seracs and crevasses bridged by ladders, several short ice cliffs nearby camp 3 and rock segments preserved with fixed formations. There is an apparent threat of high altitude illness complications and unpredictable, changeable mountain weather.
• The Khumbu Icefall is an abrupt glacier with a clear indication of treacherous unstable seracs and large crevasses making navigation riddled and complicated with a high objective threat of dropping ice. This is the critical part of the climbing. At the opening of the period, climbing Sherpa set the path within the icefall placing ladders along vertical seracs ice walls and across crevasses for easy and efficient climbing. These methods make the climb of the Khumbu icefall practical, possible and relatively safe especially when the ice structure is well frozen, early morning before the sunrise. Khumbu icefall is perilous in the afternoon because of its western aspect.
• Camp 1 at 6065m is positioned on the head of Khumbu ice fall. It is an exposed and desolate place majorly used as the transition and rest of the location on the way to camp 2 at 6750m. The glacier within camp 2 and 1 flattens, but there are yet big crevasses close to camp 1, which are also fixed with ladders.
• Camp 2 is situated in a lateral moraine at the base of the west ridge. It is a pretty sheltered and safe location with large views on Lhotse. Camp 2 is primary acclimation camp and the base for camp 3 acclimation climb and the ultimate summit struggle.
• Camp 3 at 7100m is placed on a tiny ledge on the Lhotse wall. One has to pass the glacier to the right side before 40deg 600m climb on the compact snowfield. The route is safe with a couple of short less than 3m ice cliffs, which climbing sherpas install with ropes.
• From the south summit, there is knife-edge southeast ridge with challenging overhanging cornices. The most exposed segment of the climb between 3050m southwest face and Kangshung face and Hillary step at the end, a group of imposing rock steps usually bypassed on deep the snow, which can be a serious danger.
Our Everest Climbing Services:
• The Mount Everest is the largest mountain in the World 29028ft. (8848m).
• Everest Base camp is located at the height of 18000ft on the north of Khumbu glacier. All the Mt. Everest climbers gather here during the opening and at the ending time of their climb. Usually, the climbing span of this journey lasts for about 90 days. All the climbers who mass there at the base camp seem busy with excitement for the preparation of their expedition to reach the summit.
• We have to cross-ice block, Seracs, and crevasses, after the Base camp. Similarly, we should face the way having Chunks of ice as large as our houses where we should use aluminum ladders and fixed ropes to climb ahead camp 1st 6400m.
