Mount Everest (8,848m/29,029ft) is the world’s highest Peak located in Nepal, which lies in the Mahalangur Himalayan range on the border between Nepal and Tibet (Latitude: 27°59ʹ17ʺ, Longitude: 86°55ʹ31ʺ). It was first climbed on May 29, 1953, by Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa from Nepal via South Face. Since then, many climbers have followed their steps and summited Mount Everest achieving uncountable world records in the history of Mountaineering. Everest Expedition is the most sought-after expedition by people all around the globe. Millions of people have dreams to climb Mount Everest but only half of them find success. Climbing and summiting Mount Everest is incredibly inspiring and a matter of personal status and prestige. Standing on the top of the world and gazing at the view of Mt. Lhotse, Mt Makalu, and many other beautiful peaks is beyond human imagination and inexpressive. Hence, better planning, well preparation, training and right selection of the organizing company is a must.

Minimum Group Participants and holiday Status The required number of participant bookings i.e. six (6) registrations are required to conduct the “Fixed departures”. Although we receive several guests for each fixed departure, we feel that it is important to mention it. You can make sure of the trip status on this page. Status “available” means we are registering guests and “guaranteed” means we have crossed the required number of participants and the trip will commence on the given dates. We will constantly be in touch with all our guests who register. We will timely guide you step by step regarding visa applications and flight reservations to Pakistan etc. Travel Documents & Visa In order to apply for visas to Pakistan, you generally need a passport expiring later than (6) months. For more reliable and updated information, we suggest you to contact the nearest Pakistani consulate or embassy in your country. We expect that you will take full responsibility for ensuring you have the right travel documents. Normally if you are visiting non-EU countries, you must check for 2 vacant pages in your travel document (passport) for every country you plan to travel. A tourist visa (visit visa) is required to come to Pakistan for trekking. People on work visas (already in Pakistan/abroad) require a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) which normally takes up to 6 weeks. The requirements and fee for tourist visas to Pakistan is normally around 200 USD but for accurate information you should consult Pakistani consulates nearby. To apply for a tourist visa, you will need a Letter of Invitation from our company and sometimes a duplicate (copy) of the “government trekking permit” for the group, processed by us. We will help you with all necessary documents to obtain the visa once you register with us. For more information please write us at info@karakorumexpedition.com
