unfavorable weather conditions. The North Col climb involves plenty of acclimatization at Base Camp then advanced base camp and at the camps on the actual Col itself which begin at over 7000 meters.History of expeditions, Tibet, Mountaineer Training & Sherpa Guides on Mt.Everest The history of climbs on and to the North Col begins in 1921 with George Mallory and his team which was the first time Westerners had set foot upon Mount Everest.,

Back then, Westerners could not visit Nepal and Tibet was more easily accessible and this led to the approach of the North Col. And This expedition was also the first to use bottled oxygen at high altitude, a tradition that we facilitate for you. At this point in time, visas for Tibet and climbing permits are easily obtained and we will expedite you through the process. Also, expeditions to the adjoining peak of Lhakpa Ri which offers a great opportunity for less experienced climbers as it one of the most accessible peaks above 7000 meters in the world.
