Our experience at Mount Everest goes back to 1991 when Daniel Mazur climbed Mount Everest.

Two routes have established as "normal" to climb Mount Everest: the southern ascent from Nepal, already used during the first ascent by Hillary and Tenzing in 1953, and the northern ascent from Tibet (China).
Follow in the footsteps of the 1. ascent: The slow ascent through the green Khumbu valley offers a nice and good acclimatization. The route of the ascent starts just above the base camp at 5,700 meters altitude with the infamous Khumbu Icefall, a good test and training for the climb. The normal route from Nepal is longer and objectively more dangerous, but technically less demanding than the northern ascent. It is particularly suitable for climbers who are technically less experienced. The summit ascent from the South Col at almost 8,000m (26,000 ft) height is long and exposed. After the South Summit, you climb the famous '"Hillary Step" to stand on top of the world. Please find more information on:

Here you can also find information about our COVID-19-evaluation for Nepal and Tibet. We are preparing our 2021 and 2022 expeditions and will gladly accept your request. Mount Everest is on the border of China with Nepal and accordingly look at the development for those two countries.
Entry is possible with negative Covid-19 test
There is a 6-day mandatory quarantine in Kathmandu
Test on the 5th day, in case of negative result the continuation of expedition
Situation in Nepal: There has been transmission of COVID-19 in all 77 districts of the country with the epidemic centered around Kathmandu. Sufficient testing capacity is a good sign for Nepal. Current numbers:
271,289 covid cases, of that 2,400 active
266,859 recovered, 2,030 deaths.
2.1 million tests have been done
Official Assessments: Nepal is not assessed as a risk area by Switzerland (DFA).
Outlook: Currently no entry is possible (only with at least 2 weeks quarantine, PCR test) and permits are not issued. A positive change for the Everest season 2021 is rather unlikely.
The season is 100% planned and prepared. On the part of the number of participants this expedition is confirmed. We are planning for quarantine in Kathmandu, although of course we hope that this rule will be lifted again.
You can sign up. However, you should be prepared for a change to Nepal (7000m+ Challenge on Camp-3-Tour or Baruntse Expedition). Alternatively, we offer a free postponement to 2022 until 3 weeks before the start of the trip.
You are welcome to register now for 2022. The number of participants for the Nepal expedition has already been secured and there is a lot of interest in Tibet. As the organizer, we will take care of the price insurance, so that you can look forward to your 2022 expedition with planning security.
Inquiries for 2023 and further we gladly accept and help with the long-term preparation. The pricing is still subject to too many unknowns for a fixed offer due to the climbing fee (permit) and currency fluctuations.
Dear climber, our home valley lies in Switzerland so all our information is originally in German. Yet, we speak English, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Swahili, and even Mandarin. We will be happy to assist you.
