Most of the mountaineers have their dream to reach the summit of Everest in their life time. For many who are mainly trekkers are contended having the good view of it from Kalapatthar, Gokyo Ri or visiting Everest base camp. Many mountaineers successful Everest expedition is the ultimate goal of climbing in the world. Everest expedition via the South Col remains the most popular choice among the Everest climbers as it gives the most assured means of reaching the top. Time spent over 8000m. is less in the approach to the summit on the south side as the summit is attempted in one push. Furthermore, the south route has a good record of success due to the easy access of the route once it is opened by the first summiteers of the season during Everest Expedition.

There are many routes to choose to climb Everest. Mainly there are two sides. One is from Nepal and other is from Tibet. However, within these two side, there are many routes to choose from. Some claimed that there are 18 named routes. There are couple still unclimbed. Among these routes, Hillary & Tenzin route from Nepal and Normal route from Tibet are the easiest one. Nepal side is easier to to climb but prone to avalanche. Where as from Tibet side is less prone to avalanche.

The popular Everest base camp trail is followed to reach the base camp for the Everest expedition. A short walk along the moraine leads to the icefall with large seracs and crevasses which is considered one of the obstacles for the Everest Expedition. Each year, experienced Sherpa’s fix this section with ropes and ladders which makes easier for the climbers to cross this section to reach Camp 1. The terrain is gradual climb to reach the Camp 2 near the top of the Western Cwm. From here climbing on mixed snow and ice leads way up the Lhotse Face to Camp 3. From the camp 3 climbing on moderate mixed snow and rocks is not easy which leads to South Col. the Camp 4. The route steepens after ascending snow slopes to reach the crest of the South East Ridge and easy climbing and then again steep climbing leads to the South Summit. A short traverse to the Hillary Step and then climbing on short, steep rock and snow groove of notorious Hillary Step leads to the final easy ridge to the summit. Since 2015 earthquake in Nepal, Hillary step has disappeared and has made the climber even more easier.
