HimalayanWonders.com announces tentative dates and climbing schedule for its 2014 trip to Mount Everest. HimalayanWonders.com offers a wide range of adventure opportunities in the Himalayas from short treks to major expeditions.

(TRAVPR.COM) NEPAL - August 7th, 2013 - HimalayanWonders.com announces tentative dates and a climbing schedule for its 2014 trip to Mount Everest the Earth's highest mountain, with a peak at 8,848 meters above sea level. The approximately 63 day climb will start on April 1 and is expected to last until the start of June in 2014. The journey to the summit is for experienced climbers only. There are two main routes to the summit of Everest. The principal route and the one taken by Himalayan wonders is the south-east ridge from Nepal.

The trip starts in Kathmandu from where participants will fly to Lukla before starting the approximately 10 day trek to Everest Base Camp. This beautiful trek takes one through the traditional villages of Nepal which today are thriving on the growing trekking economy. During the trek one gets fantastic views of other peaks in the region such as the mighty Ama Dablam and closer to base camp Nuptse and Lhotse both over 8000 meters. The trek to base camp is a time both to prepare oneself mentally and also acclimatize.

Upon arriving at Everest Base Camp climbers will spend a few weeks acclimatizing before starting up to Camp I. The journey to Camp I crosses the treacherous Khumbu Icefall. This traverse is one of the more dangerous sections of the climb as climbers most make their way past numerous crevasses and shifting blocks of ice know as seracs.  The route from Camp I follows the Western Cwm up to Camp II at 6500 meters. Continuing from Camp II climbers ascend the Lhotse face on fixed ropes up to Camp III, located on a small ledge at 7,470 meters.  Continuing from Camp III to Camp IV which is located at the South Col, climbers are faced with two additional challenges: The Geneva Spur and The Yellow Band. On the South Col, climbers enter the death zone. Climbers typically only have a maximum of two or three days that they can endure at this altitude for making summit bids.

No matter what your experience level getting to the summit of Mount Everest is a dangerous proposition and not one to be taken lightly. There have been 219 fatalities recorded on Mount Everest from the 1922 through the end of 2010, a rate of 4.3 fatalities for every 100 summits. The best way to minimize ones risk is through adequate training, proper preparedness and choosing an experienced team to organize the expedition.

HimalayanWonders brings climbers the personalized service and support they need to successfully summit.  The founding team members have both personally taken most of the treks offered on the website and can offer you personal advice whether you are arranging one of the more popular treks or a want to summit Everest. The team at HimalayanWonders has been working with the same Sherpas and porters in Nepal for the last 10 years and can assure you the best service from the moment you touch down in the Himalaya.
