Mount Everest, the towering giant of the Himalayas, stands tall as the highest peak on Earth at an awe-inspiring 8848.48 meters (29,030 feet). Nestled on the border between Nepal and Tibet, this behemoth of a mountain is revered as the Mother Goddess by the Nepalese and Sherpas, who call her Sagarmatha, and the Tibetans, who refer to her as Chomolungma. Since the first British expedition set out in 1921, Mount Everest has beckoned adventurers from all corners of the globe, challenging them to scale her mighty heights. And on May 29, 1953, Tenzing Norgay Sherpa of Nepal and Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand achieved the unimaginable, making the first successful ascent to the summit.

For many mountaineers, the quest to reach the top of Mount Everest is the ultimate adventure. The mountain’s reputation as a formidable challenge only adds to its allure, drawing in thrill-seekers from around the world to test their mettle against its icy slopes. And for those who are able to reach the summit, the feeling of accomplishment is second to none.

Pre-requisite requirements several 4000M-6000M expeditions: Lobuche East & Island Peak, Chulu West, Khumbu 3 Peak expeditions, Mt, Blanc etc

In order to increase the likelihood of success during an Everest climb, it is important to follow a systematic approach. This system should be based on factors such as experience, planning, and skill, as well as persistence and training. The combination of a well-crafted strategy and a solid system is key to a successful expedition to the top of the world’s highest peak.

At Namas Expedition, our team of skilled strategists understands the importance of taking a holistic view of the climbing process. We will work with you to develop a personalized plan that takes into account your individual needs and goals. If you are committed to realizing your dream of climbing Mount Everest and believe you have the necessary experience, determination, and dedication to prepare, we welcome you to apply to join our team. Let us help you make your ascent to the summit of this iconic mountain a reality.


The problem of waste accumulation in the mountains is a pressing concern that has been largely overlooked for too long. At Namas Adventure, we are committed to taking action to address this issue head-on. In an effort to reduce the amount of waste left behind by expeditions at high camps, we will have dedicated high-altitude porters who will bring down waste from Camps 1 and 2 to Base Camp. Our client-leading Sherpa team will also assist in bringing down waste from Camps 3 and 4 to Camp 2 during rotation and while the summit team descends.

Once the waste has been brought down to Base Camp, it will be properly sealed and transported via yak to a designated dump site in the valley. We believe that it is our moral duty, as operators of expeditions in the mountains, to protect and preserve these environments for future generations. That is why we are implementing these tactics and are committed to building on our sustainable practices. The pollution of our mountains and the disregard for the waste left behind is a concern that should be shared by all. Together, we can work towards a cleaner and more sustainable future for the mountains we love

Alpine Camping during Lobuche East camps and Everest Camp 2 or 3



  • The South col route, Nepal. Better infrastructure and rescue availability up to camp 2.
  • The HRA (Himalayan Rescue Association) at base camp is a medical clinic manned with specialty-trained doctors 24/7
  • The South Side is a milder climbing environment vs the drier, dustier, windier North Side

For the past seven years, we at Namas Adventure have been at the forefront of providing state-of-the-art communication systems for our expeditions. These systems offer comprehensive weather forecasting, which allows us to plan our ascents around favorable conditions. In addition, our team of meteorologists, based in London, Kathmandu, and the base camps, provides an expert interpretation of weather data, including wind speed, precipitation, and temperature, to help inform decision-making.

Unlike larger operation teams, we take a more nimble approach, with small, flexible teams. This allows our climbers greater flexibility in terms of rotation dates and the ability to make swift decisions about summit attempts, minimizing the potential for queues on the mountain. We also have a dedicated base camp and support crew to ensure that our clients receive the highest level of care, including a dedicated base camp doctor who is solely focused on the well-being of the team. Our expedition leader climbs with the team to the summit and back, enabling us to make critical decisions quickly and effectively.

By keeping our team small but highly supported, we are able to provide the best possible strategy, flexibility, and resources to succeed in the dynamic environment of Mount Everest, while never compromising on safety or standards. Please see below for further details on our expedition strategy.


To begin our expedition, we will embark on a leisurely trek through the iconic Everest base camp, taking time to acclimatize and immerse ourselves in the local culture and the stunning views of the Himalayan range. Our first camp will be the Lobuche East base camp, where we will also climb Lobuche East as an acclimatization peak before settling in at the Everest base camp.

If you wish to invite family or friends to join you on this journey until either Everest base camp or the Lobuche East Peak climb (suitable for beginners to intermediate climbers), please visit the link provided or contact us to make arrangements. We look forward to sharing this incredible

As part of our expedition, we will use Mount Lobuche East (elevation 6119 meters) as an acclimatization and training peak. This popular 6,000-meter peak in Nepal offers an ideal opportunity for our team to refresh our skills, acclimatize to high altitude, and bond with our fellow members. The climb will also provide our guides with a better understanding of each climber’s confidence, fitness, and skills.

We will establish base and high camps before attempting to summit Lobuche East and returning to base camp for a rest before moving on to Everest base camp. Using this approach, we hope to maximize the safety and success of our expedition.


Before the arrival of our climbers at base camp, our base camp manager and team will have already set up the necessary infrastructure, including individual camps, storage areas, communication and media stations, toilet and shower facilities, a kitchen and dining tent, and a headquarters for briefing purposes.

It is a tradition on all of our expeditions to begin with a Puja ceremony, led by a dedicated Lama Guru (head monk). During the ceremony, prayers will be recited to the mountain gods, asking for well-being, safety, and a successful expedition. All climbers are expected to participate in the ceremony, and their climbing gear will be blessed as well. This tradition is an important aspect of the expedition for our guides and we encourage all climbers to take part.


Upon arriving at base camp, the climbing team will remain there for a period of 30+ days. One of the first technical challenges of climbing Mount Everest is crossing the ladders over the Khumbu icefall. Therefore, a significant portion of our training will be dedicated to becoming proficient in this task. We will also spend time practicing on nearby glaciers, refining our skills in climbing vertical ice walls using fixed ropes and ice axes. Our goal is to replicate the conditions of the icefall as closely as possible, so that when we begin our ascent, all climbers will be comfortable and confident in crossing the ladders. During this time, our guides will provide personal guidance in real-time to ensure the safety and success of the team.

How many rotations: Each time we go from base camp to Camp 1 we will have to cross Khumbu ice fall.

When will climbers sleep here: No, we do not sleep here.

CAMP 1 (6,065M/19,900FT)

Once the team has successfully navigated the challenges of the Khumbu Icefall, Camp 1 will be established on a snowy and icy surface below the Nuptse. From this point on, the route to Camp 2 becomes more even and manageable. Camp 1 will be the first location where climbers will need to share tents and adapt to an alpine environment. It is important to be prepared for these challenges and to work together as a team to overcome them.

How many rotations: 2 rotations

When will climbers sleep here?: Climbers will sleep here during acclimatization rotation mostly.

CAMP 2 (6400M/20997FT)

The hike from Camp 1 to Camp 2 is relatively even, compared to other sections of the climb. The route passes between Nuptse, Everest, and Lhotse, offering stunning views of these iconic peaks. It is an exciting part of the expedition where you will have to climb and navigate the zig-zag crevasses, one that requires focus and determination.

How many rotations: 2 rotation

When will climbers sleep here?: Climbers will sleep here during acclimatization rotation mostly and when descending back from the summit.

CAMP 3 (7200M – 7500M / 23622FT+)

Camp 3 is located on a steep section of Lhotse’s face and requires a strenuous climb up fixed-line ropes from Camp 2. The camps at this elevation are particularly dangerous, as they are situated on small ledges or pockets that can be precarious. It is crucial that all climbers ensure their safety ropes are securely attached to the main safety ropes, as there have been numerous falls and incidents, particularly during nighttime. Our guides will be available to provide assistance and guidance to ensure the safety of the team.

When will climbers sleep here?: Climbers will not sleep here, this will be the final point for Everest partial climbing team.
