No one can climb the highest mountain in the world. However, you might be lucky enough to do so if you follow these 10 crucial adventure tips.
Among some of the things people can do while traveling, adventure in the mountains is one of the most interesting. However, climbing mountains is not an easy thing to do. As a result, very few people can climb mountains due to challenges ranging from altitude sickness to shortness of breath. Those who can meet these challenges can successfully climb and emerge.
Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world and therefore represents a great challenge for the mountaineer who wishes to explore it. You have to understand so much about the mountain and plan accordingly to successfully climb. Here are a few tips.
ten Understanding starting points and distance
Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world and hence it is quite huge. This means that people cannot climb the mountain from any point. Understanding the good points available to depart from makes finding the easiest route to use in different conditions. One has to do some research to find this information to understand how long it would take to climb the mountain to certain peaks.
9 Get ready where to stay
Climbing Mount Everest does not take a single day. It is an adventure that will take several days and accommodation is a crucial factor. Make sure they plan where to stay when they get to the starting point and during the climb. There are several accommodation options that one can take. Camping is one of them, and renting ready-made camps is another. However, one must consider cost, comfort, availability, and other factors to know which one to choose at different levels of the climb.
8 cost of escalation
This is where the budget for climbing Mount Everest comes in. It is an adventure activity that will cost a person a good amount of money. List all the needs and how much they will cost. This represents flights to the Himalayan region, road trips to the starting point of the mountain, buying supplies such as food and camping bags, clothing, hiring guides if necessary, and much more.
7 train first
Participating is a must because Mount Everest is very high. Make sure they train appropriately to handle the ascent to base camp. Technical and physical training is very crucial as it prepares you to navigate rough terrain and cope with altitude. The best way to train is to hire trainers and take weeks of physical exercise. The most recommended time to train is around 6-8 months before the month of climbing. It is also necessary to train in the transport of luggage because in climbing luggage up to 22 kg may be necessary.
6 Know and avoid the risks
Climbing Everest is no small feat. It’s a challenge that has seen many people die. Indeed, the journey itself is filled with many harsh conditions such as avalanches, storms, glaciers, etc., which can easily lead to death. There are continuous rocks, terrains and much more that can test the health of human beings. As a result, it should be ensured that they research carefully what the risks and dangers are and how to avoid them.
5 mental preparation
Climbing Everest is one thing, but finishing it comfortably is another challenge. With altitude, lack of oxygen, difficult terrain, bad weather, multi-day hikes, limited resources such as water, toilets, insects and dirt, mental well-being can be put to a test. This is where proper training comes in. Consideration should be given to starting with small mountains, camps and the use of coaches to give them a better understanding of mountaineering. It also trains the brain to adapt to the scarcity of resources and to use those that are available.
4 Get the right climbing gear
Climbing gear is crucial for tackling Mount Everest. It takes a lot for someone to effectively climb the mountain. This can include things like shoes, clothes, raincoats, bags, sleeping bags, camping tents and more. However, the secret is to find the ultimate good list of things to get when climbing. Consulting someone who has climbed the mountain before is beneficial. Another issue is knowing where and when to buy the gears. Some people may prefer to buy upon arrival in Nepal while others may consider buying before.
3 Get a friend
When it comes to climbing a mountain like Everest, climbing in a team or with friends helps. As the terrain is bad and the conditions can be dangerous, you should not climb alone. A friend should also go through the same preparation process.
2 Find out the right moment
Not all weather is suitable for climbing Mount Everest, especially for people who are not experienced climbers. In some cases, the challenge may be weather conditions. However, in others it may be the people climbing. There are cases where the number of climbers is so high that it is not a suitable environment. In such cases, research should be done to find out the number of people climbing to plan accordingly.
1 Obtain a medical examination
Health is a crucial factor when it comes to challenging the body in conditions as difficult as climbing Everest. Accordingly, one must pass a medical examination before climbing the mountain to ensure that the climber is in good health to make the ascent.
