More often than not, the endeavor to Mount Everest takes around two months. The majority of the climbers begin their excursion from base camp after March and they begin touching base at the base camp in late March.
The base camp is around 5300 meters and it remains at the foot of the icefall which is the significant trouble. Trekkers have now acclimatized to different pinnacles.
Many want to climb Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain peak.
But heavy pockets with strong liver, health and a lot of guts is what required to reach there. Now Nepal has decided to reduce the fees for mountaineers.
Mountaineers climbing Everest currently have to pay $ 25,000 (about 15.56 lakh rupees) which was reduced to, $ 11,000 (about Rs 6.82 lakh) from 2015. Those who climb the group of seven people will have to pay a total of $ 70,000.
Nepal's tourism ministry official Tilakram Pandey says, 'Changes in the royalty rate will lead to lesser fugitive groups.
These are such groups where the leader does not know some members of his own team.' Pandey hopes that reduction of fees will lead to 'responsible and intimate climbers'.
The climbing fees for other mountain peaks have been kept very low. To boost off-season tourism, the fees for other routes have been set at 2,500 dollars.
The best time to climb Everest is from March to May. During this time, the snow is fresh and the rain is also not equal to that and due to the good sun, the weather remains lukewarm.
Garbage on the mountain
In 1953, New Zealand's Edmund Hillary, with Nepali Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, stepped on Mount Everest for the first time. Both won the summit of the world by way of the South East Ridge. Since then, 4,000 people have toured the peak ever since. During this time 250 people had to die.
Of the 14 highest peaks in the world, eight are in Nepal. There are more than 2,000 peaks in the Himalayas in Nepal, 326 of these are open to foreign climbers.
Mountaineering is a strong pillar of Nepal's economy. Four percent of the country's GDP comes from here.
'All the best'
