Everest North Expedition
 
 

Mount Everest North Expedition

Everest in Tibet straddles the east section of Nepal/Tibet border, with its northern side lying in the Tingri Country. Before 1949 all approaches had to be made from Tibet as Nepal was closed. Once the latter opened its doors that of the former were shut. It was only in 1980 that Tibet was reopened for expeditions and with that a whole new worlds of exciting opportunities unfolded. Since the earliest Himalayan expeditions the North Ridge has represented staggering achievement.

The North Side of Everest is drained by the Rongbuk Glacier system which flows north around Changtse, the "North Peak" of Everest. Changtse is linked to Everest by a saddle, the North Col, which is about 7000 meters (around 23,000').
