This unique Event allows participants to climb the Highest Mountain in the world and participate in world’s highest Marathon Race – Mount Everest Marathon (Tenzing Hillary) from the Expedition Base Camp on May 29th to celebrate the successful ascent of Mount Everest on the very same day by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary back in 1953.

The idea of ECCR is not only to climb or run, at the same time the climbers collect and bring back maximum garbage as possible, at least bring back the garbage from their own expedition to help the Mountain Clean from personal level and helping Nepal Himalayan Eco Tourism. Over the few years time this concept has been very popular and appreciated by all the participants from different parts of the world. Come and join in this unique Event of your lifetime.

The Expedition:

Everest is technically difficult to climb so it is not a "guided" ascent. This expedition will be led by professional and competent mountaineers who have enough experience to climb one of the world's highest mountains. To match toughness of High Mountain, it is recommended that the team members should be suitably experienced, reasonably self-sufficient and capable and willing to move between camps unsupervised to ensure hundred percent successes. But it doesn't mean that you are not supported by Sherpa guides. To ensure your success, you will have a high level of support backed by strong, confident leadership. This will maximise your chances of success without undermining the quality of your achievement.

 

The Climb

From base camp on the Nepalese side, the route to the summit can be divided into four separate sections:

The Khumbu Icefall

The Western Cwm

The Lhotse Face

The Summit (South East) Ridge

These distinct sections give the climb tremendous variety, although they do have their individual challenges and hazards. Being able to divide the mountain into four parts also has psychological benefits, enabling climbers to focus on each section and to measure their progress up the mountain more easily.

 

The Khumbu Icefall

Before venturing into the Khumbu Icefall, members will be practiced in the specialist techniques of secure movement through complex ice terrain including ladder crossing and the use of fixed rope. As soon as the route through the Icefall is prepared, we will be able to start carrying loads to camp 1. All members will need to participate in the load carrying although this will be kept to a minimum. The Sherpas will do the bulk of the load carrying in order to prevent members from burning themselves out too early.

 

The Western Cwm

A normal course of events would be for everyone to reach camp 1 with a light load and then return to base camp. A day or two later, the team would occupy camp 1 and spend two or three nights there. During that time, members may make a carry to camp 2, once the route has been prepared. Camp 2 is near the top of the Western Cwm and although this would not be fixed with ropes, members would need to be roped-up in case of hidden crevasses. Following this, everyone would then return to base camp for a few days' rest.

 

The Lhotse Face

The teams will then move up and occupy camp 2, which is in a spectacular position at the foot of the South West Face of Everest. Camp 2 is effectively an advance base camp and will be well stocked with supplies, including mess tent and cook tent. After spending two nights here, the team will make a light load carry to camp 3 on the Lhotse Face, at around 7,200m (23,600ft).

An ascent of the Lhotse Face will give everyone a really good look at the climb and a flavor of things to come. We will then return to base camp for a prolonged rest while the Sherpa team and the expedition leaders prepare the top section of the climb. This will be a real chance to recharge the batteries after a tough few weeks and to focus on the final ascent. During this phase, our past climbers have found it very beneficial to go all the way down to Pheriche, which at 4,300m (14,000ft) is low enough to recuperate fully.

The Summit (South East) Ridge When the weather is settled, the team will move up, camp by camp, sleeping on oxygen at camp 3 and on the South Col, at camp 4. The summit day will start at around midnight, when, climbing on oxygen, we will set off with head torches from the South Col. The route soon steepens as we ascend a 500m (1,600ft) snow slope to reach the crest of the South East Ridge at around 8,400m (27,560ft) by dawn. The sun will bring with it great views across the Kangshung Face. The ridge above this point starts easily and then steepens below the South Summit. Fixed ropes lead steeply for about 200m (650ft) from below the South Summit. Standing on the South Summit the true summit looks very close but halfway between is the notorious Hillary Step which is a short, steep rock and snow groove about 10m (30ft) long.

Strenuous jumaring and climbing up this leads to the final easy ridge and the top. We would expect to reach the summit by no later than 11am. For the successful  summiteers, it will be important for everyone to have left the summit by 12 o'clock noon for the descent. The entire team should be back before dark which comes rapidly at around 6:30 pm. The descent is extremely long and tiring and energy should be kept in reserve for this. After spending another night sleeping with oxygen, the team will descend from camp 4, on the South Col, directly to camp 2 and then, the next day, to base camp.

 

Safety and the Conduct of the Climb

Although many people have now climbed Everest, danger involved in climbing is always there. As strong wind poses great threat during the late afternoon, it is always advisable not to make any attempt in the afternoon. Idea behind adhering the prevalent norms is to make successful climbing without casualty. However, this will not be to the detriment of safety. Safety will govern all decision making on the mountain and will be based on the sound mountaineering judgment of our highly experienced mountain guides. To support our guides on the mountain, we at Himex Nepal will plan the expedition as thoroughly and carefully as possible using our own experience and knowledge of the mountain to maximum benefit. Ultimately, the leader will have sole discretion on the implementation of any plan to climb the mountain and he will ensure that safety remains the prime consideration.

Apart from achieving self pride, the expedition is a part of enjoyment. So it will not be meaningful if anything happens to team member in course of competing to be on the top of mountain. Whether you make on the top of mountain or not, you should cherish your memory that you spend together on the adverse condition of high Himalaya.

 

The Run: The marathon starts from the Everest Base Camp (5364m/17,598ft) and finishes at Namche Bazaar (3446m/11306ft). The measured distance of the course is 42.195 km (26.2 miles) over rough mountain trails.

Although the course of the Everest Marathon is basically downhill, there are two steep uphill sections. There may be snow and ice on the upper part and considerable exposure along much of the marathon route Experience of rough terrain is essential. This is the world's most spectacular race held annually.

 

Expedition Itinerary:

Day 1: 

Arrive in Kathmandu via respective airlines meet our staff and  transfer to Hotel.

  In Kathmandu, we will stay at the Hotel. Team members will be accommodated on a twin share basis. If you prefer, you may have a single room for which a supplement is payable.

Day 4:

Fly Kathmandu to Lukla. Trek to Phakding. 3-4 hrs walks.

  We will make an early morning start for the Twin Otter or similar flight to Lukla, the  gateway to the Khumbu. This is an exciting flight, which should give a glimpse of Everest in the distance. In Lukla, we will meet our camp staff and porters and set off straightaway for our first night's stop at Phakding. Situated on the banks of the Dudh Kosi, which drains the whole of the Khumbu, region, this small hamlet is on the main trade route through the area and there are a number of clean, well-built lodges where we can spend the night.
   
Day 5:

Trek to Namche Bazaar (3,440 m). 5-6 hrs walks.

  We will continue up the banks of the Dudh Kosi, crossing it twice by small suspension bridges before reaching the village of Monjo where we will enter the Khumbu National Park. We will then cross the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Bhote Kosi on a high suspension bridge and climb steeply for about two hours to reach Namche Bazaar. This is a prosperous trading town and the capital of the Khumbu region. Many Tibetans cross the nearby border to trade their wares and the local market is a fascinating spectacle. This is a good place to buy genuine Tibetan artifacts. Just across the valley to the east stand the peaks of Thermasarkhu and Khangtiaga, both very impressive mountains.
   
Day 6:

At leisure in Namche Bazaar.

  We will spend a day in Namche Bazaar resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the altitude of 3,450m (11,300ft). At Namche Bazaar an optional hike to Khunde and Khumjung village which takes about 3-4 hrs round trip, there are several paths that reach to Khumjung and Khunde village. We will take the best shortest path, walk leads to a steep uphill near the Museum, past the big prayer boulder once out of Namche Bazaar to a steep climb for 40 minutes till Syangboche airstrip is reached.  From here our path follows North West to Khunde, at Khunde visit the Khunde Hospital.

As we follow the path, we will get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu: Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, we will cross the Imja-Tse River and make a steep climb to Thyangboche, home of an impressive and newly rebuilt monastery.
   
Day 08:

Trek to Dingboche 4,358m.Approx. 5-6 hour.

 

After a wonderful time at Thyangboche, the trail descend through a forest of birch, fir, juniper and rhododendron and coming to lovely spot at Deboche 3,650 m with  magnificent view of Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt.Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse, from Deboche walking past the long prayer mani wall, the path is gradual till you reach a small bridge over the narrow gorge of Imja-Tse river. From here the walk is gradual uphill most of the way, as you come to a large mani wall gate, a little farther from here the route diverts into two ways, the upper one going to the upper Pangboche village, where the old Monastery is located, the gradual low route is the straight forward main trail to  Dingboche Pheriche and beyond. It will be better to go the upper trail, for more view and to visit the upper Pangboche village 3,900m and its Monastery, which had a Yeti scalp, and a skeleton believed to be Yeti's hand, it was stolen in the early '90's, and has never recovered back again, like the monastery in Khumjung this Monastery is believed to be older, after the visit to the Monastery a gradual walk downhill brings you back to the  main trail, with a short climb to Shomare for lunch a small settlement with fantastic close-up view of Ama-Dablam. After a pleasant break here journey continues gradually towards east, after an hour walk, before a small wooden bridge the road splits into two ways, the north going to Pheriche and our trail leading towards east beneath towering north face of Ama Dablam, from here onwards Ama Dablam looks completely different, from the bridge the trails climbs slowly winding above the Imjatse river, till we come to a big mani Stupa, from here onwards the walk is fairly moderate as you enter the Imjatse Valley beneath the mighty peaks of Ama Dablam, Nuptse and Lhotse with view of the eastern snow capped mountains including the Island peak or Imjatse 6,189m, which is a popular peak amongst all the trekking peaks in Nepal.

Dingboche is a beautiful patchwork of field enclosed by stone walls, protecting the crops of barley, buckwheat and potatoes from the cold winds and grazing animals. Dingboche has about more than ten teahouses and it is also the gateway to Chukung and farther beyond for the most challenging traverses towards Makalu area and Hinko Valley via Sherpani col 6,100m and Amphu Labtsa 5,780m.

   
Day 09:

Rest Day at Dingboche.

  An optional day for a hike, at Dingboche there are places where one go for a short walk. Trek to Chukung 4,730m.is worth while which takes approx. 3-4 hours from Dingboche, towards east within the Imjatse Valley, although the trek is gradual, however you can feel the thin air as the altitude gains slowly coming towards Chukung. At Chukung, there are about five teahouses overlooking superb view of the snow capped peaks and glaciers of Lhotse, Ama-Dablam and Imja glacier, Chukung the last settlement in eastern Khumbu.
   
Day 10:

Trek to Lobuche 4,928m via Dugla 4,595m. Approx. 5 hours.

  From Dingboche the trail diverts towards north, the path is gradual up for about 40 -50 minutes as you come to a mani-prayer Stupa, from here the trail is gentle on the hard meadow looking down below Pheriche village, today's walk offers beautiful view of the Mt.Tawache, Ama Dablam and to the north Pokalde 5,741m, Kongma-tse 5,820m and the great wall of Nuptse. After a pleasant walk of 1 1/2 to 2 hours the trail from Pheriche joins near Thugla, before a small wooden bridge over the torrent river of Khumbu glacier. Thugla, the only place with teahouses before Lobuche. From Thugla, an hour steep up brings you to the top, where you can view Mt.Pumori and other peaks west of Everest, the spot here is good place for a few minutes break after the strenuous climb, close to this spot you can also see a number of memorial of the unfortunate climbers, who died in expeditions around the mountain of this region, From here another 1 1/2 to 2 hours of gradual ascend brings you to Lobuche, Lobuche comes as a surprise, as its situated in the corner well hidden and sheltered from the wind. Lobuche has about 5-6 Teahouses.
   
Day 11: 

Trek to Gorakshep 5,160m & Kalapathar 5,545m.

  From here follows the rocky moraine path after an hour of good gradual walk, as you walk you can see the icy-glacial pond and icebergs down below of Khumbu glacier. After the last rocky moraine dunes a short downhill walk bring you to Gorakshep on the flat field below Kalapatthar 5,545m and Mt.Pumori 7,145m. Gorakshep has two-three teahouses, After a break here at Gorakshep continue towards Kalapatthar, a few minutes of easy walk on the sandy field, then a steep climb for 45 minutes brings you to the near level field, the walk from here is gradual till you reach the rocky spot after an hour, from here another steep climb to the top for another 1/ 2 hour. Top of Kalapatthar is a small rocky peak on the southwest ridge of Mt.Pumori, the view from here is beyond imagination as the Everest looks within a stone throw distance, between the summit of Nuptse and Lho-la and Lhotse on the back, the panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish, and you feel it's worth the hard climb. Afternoon can be quite windy here, descend for the overnight at Gorakshep.
   
Day 12:

 Trek to Everest Base Camp (5,470 m).

 

We continue along the side of the Khumbu Glacier which is straight forward at first, but later the path becomes rocky and awkward as we climb across the moraine. This is more than compensated by the fabulous mountain setting as we get closer to the world's highest mountain. The sugar loaf dome of Pumori lies directly ahead and to our right, on the opposite side of the glacier, Nuptse rises in a sheer spire. Just behind it, remaining elusive to the last moment is the Mt. Everest. Gorak Shep is another small cluster of tea shops. Directly above the teahouses site is Kala Pattar [18,188ft/5,545m.]. This is a famous view-point for Mount Everest and the 1½ hour scramble to reach; it is well worth the effort.

Climbing over the mounds of moraine we traverse the Khumbu Glacier and follow a vague path to the most famous of all Base Camps. It lies right at the foot of the notorious Khumbu Ice Fall which tumbles from the Western Cwm. The Base Camp will be already well established and we can find out how the Advance Party is progressing in the Ice-fall.

   
Day 13-50:

Ascent of Mount Everest and withdrawal to Base Camp.

  It is hoped that the Khumbu Ice-fall will be fixed by the time the team arrives at the Base Camp. Members can then start load-carrying to Camp I and Camp II, in the Western Cwm. Once everyone is well acclimatized, Camp I will be mostly by-passed en-route for Camp II, which will become an Advance Base Camp. The route to this point will involve crossing the crevasses on ladders, jumaring up seracs walls and a long tedious plod-up the Western Cwm. Camp III will be placed half way up the Lhotse Face at about 7,400 meters high. From here a long rising traverse across the snow slopes, a yellow band of rock and the Geneva Spur, leads to the Couth Col and Camp IV. This will be fully established before a rest period at Base Camp.
   
 

Suggested information for the climb after Base Camp from Day 13-50:

 

Proceed to Camp I and ferry the loads between Base Camp and Camp I for 3 to 4 days.
