An expedition in Tibet to climb up to North Col on Mt Everest the highest mountain in the world.This is an opportunity to climb up to 7,000m on Mt Everest the highest mountain in the world. This expedition will be led by Roland Hunter who summitted Everest via the North East ridge in 2001. This trip would be a suitable objective for someone who has previous mountaineering experience using crampons and ice axe.
Not only is this a fantastic experience in itself but could also be used as a good reconnaissance for someone with ambitions to climb to the summit of Everest at a later date, climbing to the North Col is a perfect opportunity to see how you perform at an extreme altitude.
We have designed the itinerary to give you sufficient time for your body to adjust to the lack of oxygen at this altitude. After taking the spectacular flight to Lhasa we spend three days in the city to help your acclimatisation before driving across the Tibetan plateau to Everest Base Camp. We spend several days at Base Camp then start the walk to Advanced Base Camp followed by the climb to the North Col.

Suitability: a good choice for regular, long distance hill walkers. A very high level of fitness would be required for our toughest treks and expeditions. Previous trekking experience at high altitude is preferable although not mandatory given sufficient experience, preparation and training. These trips may involve mountaineering and glacial travel.
1) Walking times: average 7 to 9 hours walking per day (with several longer days up to 15 hours) for up to 28 days with some rest days included.
2) Altitude: up to 6,500m.
3) Terrain: you will experience a wide variety of mountain terrain from reasonable trails to crossing technical mountaineering passes and climbing to summits sometimes including use of fixed ropes.
4) Remoteness: usually in more remote areas and likely to be a long distance from nearest road and facilities available in a city.
