Mount Everest (8,848m/29,029ft) is the highest mountain on Earth, situated on the border between Tibet and Nepal in Asia’s Himalayan Mountains.
It comes as no surprise that it is classed as one of the seven wonders of the natural world
Due to the challenges and dangers involved, not many people have visited the summit. You can get guided tours using well know mountaineers, but costs can be anything from £50,000 upwards.
Because of this many people choose to attempt Mount Everest Base Camp (5,364m/17,598ft), and this is one of the most popular and visually rewarding treks around the world.
It can be a challenge for even the most experienced of trekkers, and completing this would definitely be a big tick off the bucket list for anyone.
Trips are often led by Sherpa’s, many who have been climbing the mountain ranges their whole lives.
It can take two to three weeks to get up and back again, with some days resting to help acclimatise to the altitude and surroundings.
You will require a permit to climb Mt. Everest, so make sure that your travel agent covers this off and if they sort this out for you.
Travel insurance is also another must. With the risks of altitude sickness and the high risk of injuries, you need to ensure you have the cover needed for treatment, not to mention Helicopter evacuation.
Without doubt this would be a trip to brag to your friends about and tell the grandchildren in the future, but do not underestimate the challenge Mount Everest will present you.
