At 8,848 m/29,028 ft Mount Everest is the world's highest peak. Even the trek to Base Camp is arduous. Climbers aiming for the summit must survive the extreme conditions of the 'Death Zone' and perform great feats of endurance. I am planning to use the North Col Route. Technically, it is more challenging than the South side but it does not have the ice fall danger. Another appealing aspect of the Everest North Ridge route is that it offers a view of Everest virtually the whole route from base camp. In May 2011, I have climbed up to 8,600 m/ 28,380 ft on the North side of Mount Everest, 250m/825ft short of the summit. In April 2012 I broke two ribs in Tibet on the way to the mountain and had to turn back.In April 2014 I got viral infestion at 7,000 m / 22,965 ft. and in May 2015, I experienced an earthquake of 7.8 Richter scale at 6400 m / 21,000 ft. At that time, my quest for climbing Everest changed to helping my Sherpa and other families in the Himalayas.
Climb upto 8,600m/28,380ft: May20, 2011.
