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 is the brief overview between expeditions from Nepal (South) and expeditions from Tibet (North):
|NEPAL - South||TIBET (CHINA) - North|
|6,416 ascents (64%)||3,661 ascents (38%)|
|135 with SummitClimb||152 with SummitClimb|
+ Technically easier
+ Higher summit rate
|+ Safer route
+ Less mountaineers
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:
266,546 covid cases
260,177 recovered, 1,943 deaths.
2 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.
Expeditions cancelled: Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, all expeditions to Mount Everest 2020 and Everest trekking trips have been cancelled for spring 2020 (on March 3 for Tibet, on March 12 for Nepal). Our autumn 2020 trekking season and our 2021 expedition season are filling up. Many participants who wanted to climb Everst or trek to base camp with us in 2020 are still with us.
In 2020, three winter expeditions were underway, all without summit success. A still ongoing Chinese expedition with the goal of re-measuring Mount Everest with 5G technology had reached an altitude of approx. 8600 meters during their 1st summit attempt. They had to turn back in strong winds.
Summits: On 27 May 2020, at 11:00 local time, 8 participants of the Chinese surveying expedition reached the summit. On CGTN, a Chinese media network, their ascent was broadcast live in HD quality using 5G Huawei technology. The day before, a Tibetan team had installed fixed ropes and reached the summit. And on May 28, Chinese tourists were at the summit with Sherpas from Tibet. In total, there were around 50 mountaineers on the summit in 2020: Congratulations!
Please inquire now, we are planning a special expedition in the post-monsoon season: Sept. - Oct. 2020.
