Mount Everest at 8848 m above sea level, the highest point on earth needing no introduction, is the ultimate mountaineering adventure.

Over the years, due to the access of the mountain becoming easier and over commercialization of the mountain by super luxury outfits, encouraging indiscriminately even non climbers, has seen overcrowding on the mountain. This has somewhat stolen the glory of being on the top of Mt. Everest! Nevertheless, Everest still remains the tallest mountain in the world, and to stand at the pinnacle of the earth is an overwhelming and unfathomable experience. It is still an unbelievable achievement and it is still the mountain who decides who can climb!

An attempt to summit Mt. Everest is an extreme project, which requires a huge amount of dedication, determination and commitment. If to stand on the top of the world looking down on creation is your dream, and you have the experience of climbing mountains, with the right mindset, passion and commitment- we welcome you to join our Hi On Life expedition to Mt. Everest 2017 from the North side.

We climb in our style– not babysit you to the summit, but a combined team effort involving your contribution to achieve a successful summit. However, we still provide all the logistics; experienced guides, top end tents, oxygen and equipment, excellent food and impeccable care during the entire expedition. We also provide all the “luxuries” that the big names in the industry promise you.

Where we differ is that many outfits in this business emphasises that they use “western guides”. Yes we agree that it had a leading edge until some years ago, but thanks to some incredible mountaineers from around the world, who as an act of giving back something to the community started climbing and guiding schools in Nepal. As of 2005, Nepal National Mountain Guide Association is a member country of International Federation of Mountain Guide Association (UIAGM/IFMGA). We now have many Nepalese guides who are certified International Mountain guides under UIAGM/ IFMGA certification. Moreover, thanks to the world of information technology, the local guides have more exposure to the world around- now they are climbing in Europe, America, Antarctica etc. The access of education has also seen a huge improvement in the local Nepalese guides command in English language. Therefore the Nepalese Guides of today, are at par in qualification as a professional mountain guide as to any guides from around the world.

A well-equipped Base Camp with communication facilities including Sat phones and computers with internet service is an important aspect for a successful expedition . We get constant updates on weather reports, updated from BC, Kathmandu Office and office in Sweden. For a group of 4 and above, we provide a High Altitude specialised expedition doctor!

Summary of your expedition: 

The expedition begins in Kathmandu, where you spend a couple of days preparing for the expedition. All set and ready to go! We drive to Kerung to enter Tibet. On the way to Everest Base Camp, we drive through Jilong and Thingri, where we spend a few days for acclimatisation before heading up to Base Camp.
Advanced Base Camp at 6200 meter will be used as a base camp during the acclimatisation rotations and final summit push. During the rotations of acclimatisation, all higher camps will be set up by our Sherpa guides, and climbing logistics- food, fuel, ropes, oxygen bottles etc. will be stacked up in different camps. After the rotations are complete, we head back down to Base Camp for rest and recovery before the final summit push when the weather window is open.

Undoubtedly the best way to recharge yourself.

Grading

Our grading system for trekking:

There are many different factors that contribute to the difficulty of a particular trip
Our grading are based on various factors such as length of trek and walking day, trail conditions, maximum altitude and average altitude, elevation gain/loss per day, prevailing weather conditions, temperature range, remoteness and general level of comfort.
Although we have tried to make our grading system as clear as possible, it cannot take into account your personal interests, abilities or experience. If you have any questions about the nature of a particular trip or its suitability for you, please contact us at info@hionlifeadventures.com

Grade A: Leisure

These adventure tours are our least demanding trips suitable for people with a basic level of fitness and good health. These trips may involve long drives usually on private transport. Sightseeing trips are conducted on foot. The itinerary may also take you to remote places with basic lodging facilities and may also involve a day or two of hiking. We expect you to carry a small back pack weighing about 4 to 5 kgs.
Recommended preparation: Walking on undulating terrain for an hour, for at least 2-3 months prior to departure.

Grade B: Easy to moderate

These adventures involve trekking between 7 to 10 days in remote areas where facilities are often basic. These trips involve some camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 3 to 6 hours of walking each day on good trails with plenty of time for sightseeing. The itineraries often include 1 or 2 rest days. The trails are generally well defined and relatively easy, but it doesn’t mean it will be a walk in the park. In the Himalayas, flat trail are extremely rare sights, so there will be plenty of ascents and descents on rocky terrains and often on stony steps. The altitudes are moderate and rarely go above 3800m. The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 400m with perhaps an odd day ascending/ descending about 800m. There are no extremes of weather and the daytime temperatures generally do not get lower than 5C with exceptional cases during bad weather when it can get down to 0C.

Recommended preparation: Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure.

Grade C: Moderate

These treks are slightly more difficult. Our moderate treks are between 11 to 15 days in remote areas with camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 4 to 7 hours of walking each day on good trails with plenty of time for sightseeing. The itineraries often include 1 or 2 rest days. The trails are generally well defined but with plenty of ascents and descents on rocky terrains and often on stony steps. The altitudes are moderate and rarely go above 4500m. The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 500m with occasional harder days ascending/ descending about 800m. There are no extremes of weather and the daytime temperatures generally do not get lower than 5C with exceptional cases during bad weather when it can get down to -5C.

Recommended preparation: Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure.

Grade D: Challenging

These adventures are more challenging and remote and with altitudes up to 5600m. Our challenging treks are between 13 to 24 days in remote areas with camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 5 to 7 hours of walking each day with some days involving crossing a pass with up to 10 hours walking. Generally the trails are well defined, but there will be days which involve climbing steep rocky terrains at high altitudes and crossing icy and rocky glaciers in harsh weather conditions.
The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 500m with a few harder days ascending/ descending about 1000m. The itineraries often include rest days after such big ascents.
Temperatures can get below Zero in the daytime at high altitudes and can fall down to -10C at night.

Recommended preparation: Stamina is essential, as walking days are long. We recommend previous trekking experience, preferably at altitude. Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure. Cycling is recommended. Long day hikes on weekends with a daypack in variable weather conditions is also recommended.
