Climbing Duration:  8 Days

Max Altitude:  Everest North Col, 7033m

I AM Treks & Expedition is offering clients the exciting opportunity of climbing to the North Col of Everest.
Our refined program is ideal for those clients who have some previous climbing experience and would like to take on the considerable challenge of climbing to 7,000 meters.

Although climbing at this altitude is not easy, the superb views of the North Face of Everest from the Col make it all worthwhile and the whole experience will leave you with a huge sense of achievement.
This trip has the added advantage of offering three different departure dates throughout the season. You will be met in Kathmandu by a member of the I AM Treks & Expedition team who will accompany you to Base Camp, where you will meet the Guides who will look after you for the rest of the expedition.
Although this trip starts in Kathmandu, we then fly to Lhasa in Tibet. From there we drive for several days before reaching the Everest Base Camp 5,200m. After some days of acclimatization we then walk to an Interim camp for one night and then to the Advanced Base Camp at 6,400m a distance of 22km.
Several days are spent at ABC in order to acclimatize before making the five to six hour climb via fixed ropes up to the North Col.
The route is initially a straight forward trail up moraine to the East Rongbuk Glacier, which leads to the fixed ropes. The descent takes around three hours.
The North Col is a fairly large area where all expeditions make Camp 1 and from where there are fantastic views of the whole of the North face of Everest, the West Rongbuk Glacier, Lho La, Pumori and Cho Oyo.
In order to mineralize the North Col. program, we will have Everest Expedition Team and Lhakpa Ri as well to join the same Base Camp from where people have different peaks. So we basically confirm from the minimum number of people from 2-7 persons.
