Everest climbing is not an easy task. Many people have lost their lives while climbing Everest. But it does not mean that it is unconquerable. With professional logistics support and highly experienced Sherpa staffs, Everest expedition becomes not only possible but it adds whole new level of fun.
We are often asked how many camps are there in climbing Everest. Well, there are four camps set after base camp. Everest base camp trekking route begins from Lukla and take us to Base Camp via Sagarmatha National Park and highland village of Lobuche and Gorakshep Lake to Base Camp. Climbing Everest is technical in nature.  There exists a death zone from above camp IV. So, you must get well training before attempting world’s tallest mountain.
Communication is possible through satellite phones in Everest Base Camp that is located in 5400 m altitude. You can get view of icefall from base camp. Climbing through icefall, you can reach Camp 1 located at 6100 m. you may need to use ropes from this camp onwards. Camp 2 is located at 6400m altitude. You can reach there after climbing through rocky path. Avalanche is possible in this area so it is wise not to camp too close to Everest face. Camp3 is located near Lhotse wall at an altitude of 6800m. It is not wise to spend a night in Camp3. Passing through Yellow Band and the Black Turtle rocky sections, you will reach to Camp4. Climbing further through death zone area, you will reach summit located at 8850m altitude. So, there are four Everest High Camp locations.
