Mount Everest north side expedition from Tibet

Mount Everest north side expedition from Tibet | undefined

Join Pemba Ongchhu Sherpa, an experienced IFMGA local mountain guide, in this challenging Mount Everest North Side expedition from Tibet.


60 Days

Mar - May


Reaching the summit of the giant Mount Everest (8848 m) is the greatest mountaineering challenge in the world. Located in the border of Nepal and Tibet, it is possible to climb it from both sides. This time, I invite you to a fascinating Mount Everest north side expedition, starting from the Chinese territory of Tibet.

The main climbing routes to attempt Mount Everest are the southeast ridge from Nepal, and the north ridge from Tibet.

Tibet was closed to foreign expeditions in 1950 and was reopened in 1980. Since then, it has become a very popular climbing route, with a wide range of opportunities for climbers.

Mount Everest north side route follows the Rongbuk Glacier system, which flows around the North Peak of Everest, also known as Changtse.

It is a safe climbing route, as it avoids Khumbu Icefall, one of the most dangerous stages in the south side of the mountain. It is also cheaper than climbing Everest from Nepal.

However, the north side is technically challenging because there’s more exposed rocks and camps are at a very high altitude.

For further information about this Mount Everest north side expedition, you can find the complete program below.

Please contact me if you want to be a part of this once in a lifetime adventure! I am an IFMGA local guide with wide experience in the Himalaya highest mountains. 

I will be glad to provide you all the information you need and help you plan this amazing trip.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
