Everest Expedition 2012 South cool -61 Days
Mt.Everest-Everest Expedition-Everest Expedition in Nepal-Everest Expedition South Cool-Everest-Expediton EverestMount Everest is the highest mountain in the world measuring 8,848 m(29,028 feet) in height. It was first climbed on May 29, 1953 by a New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal. Mount Everest is also known by the Tibetan name Chomolangma (Goddess Mother of the Snows), and by the Nepali name Sagarmatha (Mother of the Universe).Everest had been attempted many times before the important expeditions being that of 1922, 1923 and 1924. The body of George H. L. Mallory, who died in an earlier attempt (1924), was discovered on the mountain in 1999. More than 600 climbers from 20 countries have climbed the summit by various routes from both north and south. Climberâ€™s ages have ranged from nineteen years to sixty. Climbing on Everest is very strictly regulated by both the Nepalese and Chinese governments. Climbing Everest and Treks to Everest Base Camp are becoming increasingly popular on both the north and south sides of the mountain. On the north side, a Buddhist monastery stands at the foot of the Rongbuk Glacier, beneath Everest spectacular north face. The monastery is one of two whose locations were selected specifically to allow religious contemplation of the great peak. The other is the Thyangboche Monastery in Nepal. The once active Rongbuk monastery in Tibet has required much rejuvenation from the destruction it experienced following Chinaâ€™s invasion of Tibet.

Training for a trip
What kind of physical condition should I be in for mountaineering?
Climbing requires strength & endurance. Being in sound physical condition is the single most important aspect for climbers to maximize their climbing potential. The better your physical condition, the more likely you are to perform well and have an enjoyable experience. The most frequent comment we have received over the years is that climbers have underestimated the fitness level needed to fully enjoy their climb. Additionally, inadequate fitness has a direct effect upon the atmosphere, pace, and overall enjoyment of the trip for all team members. We encourage you to consult our office and the resources below when preparing for your climb or course.
Physical conditioning should be approached on two fronts:
Cardiovascular conditioning. Traditionally improved by activity sustained for at least 45-60 minutes, 4-5 times per week. Suggested activities include running, bicycling, swimming, stepping, etc. Proper stretching and warm-up are very important.
Strength conditioning. Traditionally improved by training with free weights or Nautilus machines.
- General conditioning for mountaineering:Hike steep outdoor trails with water weight added to your pack. A physical goal for the course or climb should be to ascend 3,500ft carrying 55-65lbs in a 2-3 hour period. Increasing amounts of water in collapsible plastic jugs can be carried to vary the workout and slowly work up to a heavier pack. (Water weight is suggested so that when the climb up is complete the weight can be dumped to save knees on the downhill return). If you are training in a gym you can use a "Step-Mill" machine that is similar to an escalator or even better an elliptical trainer. If not in a gym stairs or small hills also work well. If you train indoors, be sure to work gradually up to training with a heavy pack & boots.
