Most climbers attempt Everest during April and May. In the winter, low temperat­ures and hurricane force winds make climbing difficult. Between June and September, summer monsoons create intense storms and violent precipitation.

Prepare mentally and physically for your climb

Mt. Everest Climbing

Life and climbing both require mental and physical stamina and endurance. Of the two, the mental part is the most important. Focus on what you want and not what you fear. You are what you think about constantly. Positive thoughts, positive focus, and disciplined realistic goal setting lead to more satisfying outcomes.

Start Training

Take mountaineering courses that teach you about technique, equipment, routes and survival. Then begin a minimum of two to three years of regular practice climbs in high alpine terrain, including steep faces, rough rocks, night climbs, ice falls and snow climbs.

One step at a time

You reach the top of Mount Everest, and you surmount any of life challenges, by taking it “one step at a time.” Hard times, like a hard climb, can be tiring and we can try to speed up the process by hurrying but this often just wears us out. Challenges require us to call upon reserves of stamina and endurance we didn’t realize we had, but each step brings us closer to our goal.

Essential equipment

Oxygen canisters: five to seven 3l bottles; a sack to collect ice and snow, for melting; and wet wipes for washing your body. These freeze, so you need to sleep with them inside your tent if they’re going to be of any use. You’ll also need a satellite phone, a two-way radio and some foot powder.

Find a good guide

Don’t reinvent the wheel. We all need help when things are challenging. Find someone who has made “the climb” and knows the way there and the way back. A good guide, in climbing and in life, helps you develop the skills you need so you’ll be able to do it on your own in the future. Asking for help is not weakness, it’s smart.

Raise the cash

You’ll need plenty, even a low-budget trip will cost $25,000, with guided package trips soaring to as much as $60,000. Realize that $10,000 goes to permits alone; then add travel, food, equipment, oxygen, insurance and Sherpa fees. Consider approaching corporations for sponsorship deals to cover your expenses.

Food & Clothes

Mostly boil-in-the-bag meals as well as plenty of biscuits and chocolate. Your body burns up about 6,000 calories a day on the mountain, and, as you climb, your appetite decreases. So there is a great need to consume as many calories as you can. Don’t forget cooking equipment and mug. Many mountaineers prefer a non-insulated mug to warm hands. You need to collect suitable dress to weather.

Climbing apparatus

Harness, ice axe, jumar – a clip device that you attach to your harness and the fixed rope. It moves forward but not backwards, and is a great safety development on the mountain.
