The Everest expedition is started from base camp. While we climb we will cross crevasses, Seracs and ice black. Similarly we should face to the way up having Chunks of ice where we should used fixed ropes and aluminium ladders to climb ahead camp I (6400m).
Camp I: 20000 ft. (6,400m)
Camp I is situated at the flat area of snow endless snow deep crevasses and mountain walls. Because of the Sun's reflection from this place we get warm and hitting ambience at this place. In the night we listen the deep murmuring cracking sounds of crevasses beneath our tent. These are the areas where we have to walk to reach camp II.
Camp II. 21000 ft. (6,750m)
Camp II is situated at the height of 21000 ft. It is located at the foot of the icy mount Lhotse wall though where we have to go ahead. Hear bad clouds roll-in from the low range of the Himalayan valleys to the bottom of our camp II. Some time wind here seems very violent enough to destroy the tents. After climbing these palaces we reach camp III.
Camp III. 22300 ft. (7,100m)
Camp 3 is located at the height of 22300 ft, adjoining to mount Lhotse wall. After climbing 4000ft. Lhotse wall by using fixed rope and with prior acclimatization it leads us to camp IV. Also on the way we have to ascend the steep shallow bands (loose, down -sloping and rotten limestone). From their crossing short snowfield the route moves ahead up the Geneva Spur to the east before finishing the flats of the south col. (Another wells name meaning Saddle of pass). Oxygen should probably be use above base camp III in case of needed.

GOOD TO KNOW:
Mount Everest attracts many climbers; some of them highly experienced mountaineers. There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the "standard route") and the other from the north in Tibet.
To climb Mt. Everest, we advice the climbers to have experience of climbing 7000 m peaks before. The climbers must have experience in snow and ice and proficient in climbing in all weather condition. The Physical condition of climbers must be excellent.
HOW TO SAY HELLO AND THANK YOU IN NEPALI
Many Nepalese know Hello and Thank you, but hearing you speak in their language is still a sweet sound of respect. When saying Hello in Nepal, you say “Namaste” and fold your hands into a prayer. Thank you is “Danyavad”.
HOW TO GET A NEPAL VISA UPON ARRIVAL
Once you arrive at the airport, please follow these simple procedures for Tourist Visa on Arrival.
1st Step. Fill in ' Arrival Card ' ...
2nd Step. Make payment at the bank according to your visa requirement ( 15/30/90 Days) ...
3rd Step. Proceed to the Immigration Desk with your online form, payment receipts and your passport.
THE SPOKEN LANGUAGE IN NEPAL IS NEPALI AND THE SECOND LANGUAGE IS ENGLISH
Nepali is an Indo-Aryan language similar to Hindi, is written in Devanagari script and is the first language of Nepal. Indian travelers should understand enough to get around. English is a secondary language spoken mostly in large cities like Kathmandu. Outside Kathmandu, English is spoken a little less, but getting around is still manageable. Simply smile with a Namaste and the Nepalese will help you in any way they can.
AVOID DRINKING TAP WATER
Tap water is not filtered or purified in Nepal. Thus, tap water is often boiled before consumption. It’s best to buy bottled water. It is relatively inexpensive. Avoid any fruits and veggies foods washed in tap water.
ROADS AND DUST
Roads in Nepal can occasionally be in disrepair, due in part to the earthquake. The government is said to be working on improving them. Still, you’ll find large potholes and a lot of dust, especially in the more urban areas of Kathmandu. You’ll see Nepalese wearing face masks when driving on the road. Women cover their faces with saris or scarves.
SQAT TOILETS ARE COMMON IN NEPAL
While westernized hotels and restaurants and tourist attractions have western toilets, you’ll find more local joints and public restrooms bearing squat toilets.
AVOID STREET FOOD
Nepalese street food has been known to cause many bold adventurers a case of traveler’s stomach issues. Refrigeration is poor in Nepal so street food isn’t always refrigerated and food can be reused after a day of being out. Stick to well-maintained and busy restaurants.
BLACK OUT IN NEPAL
In the past, Nepal had regular blackout periods, which meant most of the city would go dark and don lanterns or power generators to keep business flowing. Today, the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has turned on the lights, making blackouts a thing of the past. But the newfound electricity has made Nepalese people suspect that the NEA purposely left them in the dark all these years, as a ploy to force them to invest in power generators.
Kathmandu is fairly lit and most westernized hotels and restaurants have backup power generators for traveler’s convenience. In more remote areas and trekking trips, take a flashlight or headlamp
