The Survey Department, Government of Nepal, and China jointly announced the new height of Mt. Everest 8,848.86 meters (29,031 feet, 8.315 inches) on 8th December 2020
The south ascent: We follow the classic route through the Khumbu Icefall, then over the Lhotse flank to the south saddle, from there over the southeast ridge to the summit. It is the ascent with the least technical difficulties to the Mount Everest summit and has therefore established itself as the normal route today. Nevertheless, ascent remains a very serious undertaking. This climb is technically less difficult but more expensive than the north-sided climb due to the fees.
Kathmandu, Nepal is the starting point for our expedition. The approach to the base camp begins in Lukla (2700m), a small town in the mountains, which we reach by flight. The trek through the Khumbu - certainly known to many - then leads to the south-facing base camp.
The base camp, which is now a popular destination for trekking is located at an altitude of 5100m not far from the nearest tea rooms and lodges of Gorak Shep (5150m). We set up the camp comfortably with dining tents, material tents, toilets, and a personal sleeping tent for each participant.
The route starts just above the base camp. From there we need crampons, mountaineering equipment and we have to rope up. The real climbing begins. The ascent can be broken down into the following stages:
First ascent South Route, Nepal - May 29, 1953
In 1953 the ninth British expedition to Mount Everest was hosted under the direction of John Hunt. The participants Tenzing Norgay (Nepal) and Sir Edmund Hillary (New Zealand) managed the first ascent on May 29, 1953. Their route would establish itself and is now the route for most inspections.
“You cannot be a good mountaineer, however great your ability unless you are cheerful and have the spirit of comradeship. Friends are as important as achievement. ...teamwork is the one key to success and that selfishness only makes a man small. No man, on a mountain or elsewhere, gets more out of anything than he puts into it. Be great, make others great.”
— Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, “ Tiger of the Snows”
EVEREST EXPEDITION SOUTH ROUTE MAP
Khumbu Icefall to Camp 1 (5800m)
The glacier leads flat from the base camp to the steep upswing of the Khumbu Icefall. The ascent to the 'Western Cwm' plateau leads over large crevices, some with ladders and fixed steep walls. There we set up the 1st camp.
Western Cwm to Camp 2 (6200m)
We cross the wide plateau to a rocky moraine, where the next camp will be set up. This lies under the mighty west face of Mount Everest.
Lhotse flank to camp 3 (7200m)
After an initial 100m ramp (with up to 70 ° steep ice) the flank leads to a flatter storage area with an average incline of 35 °. Protected by ice walls, we set up the third camp there.
Ascent to the south saddle - camp 4 (8000m)
We traverse exposed to the northwest to reach the broad south saddle. There we set up the last camp, from which we tackle the summit.
Summit ascent - Everest (8848m, south side)
The ascent leads along the southeast ridge through snow, ice, and rock at a 15 ° to 50 ° steep incline. After the southern summit there is a short descent and then the most technically demanding point with the approx. 12 meter high Hillary Step. The steepness is 70-80 ° and can include a rock section of the 3rd degree of difficulty. However, the ascent is secured with fixed ropes. After the steep step, flat terrain leads to the summit without any problems. For the ascent (850 m) a total of 10-12 hours should be estimated.
The descent again requires full concentration and sufficient time.

HIGH ALTITUDE SICKNESS
High-altitude illness is due to a decrease in oxygen at high altitude.
Atmospheric pressure decrease as altitude increases but the percentage of oxygen in the air remains constant; as a result, the partial pressure of oxygen decreases with altitude and is at 5500m (18000 feet) is about ½ of that at the sea level.
High-altitude illness is seen in people in people who have recently arrived at high altitude or have just gained altitude, and may start any time from few hours to a few days after ascending. High altitude is arbitrarily defined as altitudes higher than 3.000 m (10.000 ft). people with heart and hung decreases may have difficulty at lower altitudes and, rarely, a healthy, a healthy person will develop altitude illness at as low as 2500 m (8.200 ft)...

which was renamed the Tenzing Hillary Airport in 2008, are both extremely small and extremely busy. With its short runaway, steep incline, and quickly changing weather, Lukla has one of the most challenging runways in the world. In fact, for the past 20 years, it has been named the most dangerous airport in the world. High winds, low lying clouds, and sudden changes in visibility are some of the reasons behind this title. Bad weather is also a huge factor in the frequent cancellation of flights. Lukla is a gateway for Everest region trekking and climbing
Namche Bazaar (3,440m) is a tourist hub and the most popular resting stop in the Khumbu region. This hilly settlement is shaped like a horseshoe and positioned in a very unconventional location. Immediately west of this bustling town is Kongde Ri (6,187m) and to the east is Thamserku (6,608m). In addition to the abundant hotels and lodges, Namche boasts of three small museums, a stupa, a monastery, several bakeries (cafes), and many well-stocked stores. Here, trekkers can access modern communication facilities to stay connected to the outside world.
Namche Bazaar, a gateway to the high Himalayas and known for offering wonderful views of the snow-capped peaks, is considered to hold the distinction of being the wealthiest district in Nepal. It is in fact, a junction of trekking trails where different Everest trek routes have diverged.
Tengboche Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of Nepal, probably because of its unrivaled backdrop of Mt. Ama Dablam. The monastery is the leading Buddhist center in the Khumbu a region with a residing Rinpoche who blesses pilgrims, mountaineers, and travelers passing through.
Every October, Tengboche Monastery hosts the colorful Mani Rimdu festival, which is a culmination of Buddhist celebrations with a religious gathering, songs, ritual dances, and enactments of the lives of legendary figures. Visitors are always welcomed to partake in the festivities and many trekkers book their trek to coincide with the festival. Tours of the monastery are conducted every afternoon for visitors. Tengboche lies on the very popular trek route to the Everest region.
