The Expedition Route

Climbing the classic South Side route (Nepal) – initially trekking up the Khumbu Valley to get to Everest Base Camp. This is the route used for the first summit in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. Other than the icefall, maybe the most daunting part of the climb, at 28,800ft (just- above the South Summit shown below) – being named after Sir Edmund.
