A Peak Experience!

Mount. Everest newest store-By Glenn Ford

1. New Business at Mount Everest

Our new business Peak Expedition has to work around some extreme climate conditions. Because of the extreme cold conditions and altitude, climbers need more experienced climbers and Sherpas to help guide them up the mountain to achieve their goal of reaching the top peak. Our New company will help climbers of all levels reach their goal no matter what part of Mount Everest level they get to climb. We will provide guides and all the equipment you will need to do a day climb or spend weeks on the mountain.

2.Ecological impact of Mount Everest climbers -use our business it's Ecoooooo friendly!!

Following the successful summit in 1953, more and more climbers began to come to Everest, intent on emulating the first climbers. This flood of visitors brought an influx of cash as well as infrastructure to Sherpa communities. There are now schools, hospitals, and stores selling Western goods and food. With the visitors came increased deforestation for firewood, as well as a great deal of litter.

Like most alpine areas, the Himalayas are ecologically fragile. Hundreds of climbers travel to the area each year in the hopes of summiting Everest, but an additional 25,000 Everest tourists visit the area as well. Today, climbers, locals and the Nepalese government are all working to protect the environment around Everest. Cite:nepalinformation.com/home.htm

3.Climate

The weather at Mount Everest is some of the most extreme. Regardless if you are climbing the Mountain to the first level or trying to reach the highest peak, our new company (Peak Expedition) will guide you through the weather. Mount Everest has an extreme climate.

Mount Everest is located at the border of Nepal and Tibet (China), in the Himalayas. The international border between China and Nepal runs across the precise summit point. Summit is accessible from both countries, but accessibility is easier from Nepal side. Our company is experienced in climbing through this type of weather. We have all the equipment and experience to have a successful trip. Sometimes you need oxygen and special equipment to make it through the frozen mountain side.

5.Economic impact

The easiest way to get a grip on how much money Nepal takes in from tourism is to take a close look at what the Everest tourist spends. You might be surprised how quickly the numbers climb.

If you're one of the 25,000 annual Everest tourists, getting into Nepal for more than a three-day stay will only run you $30 [source: Nepal Tourism Board]. But that's just the beginning of the tab. If you want to climb one of the major Himalayan mountains, you need a government-issued climbing permit. Although you can hike more than a hundred of the smaller peaks for free, who wants to play in the sandbox when the beach is next door?

Mountains taller than 21,300 feet (6,501 meters) are premium property. That base height costs $1,000 and increases $500 for every 1,640 feet (500 meters). Since Mount Ever­est stands at a staggering 29,029 feet (8,848 meters), the permit will run around $3350.

Now that you've got your permit, you're ready to start climbing, right? Not quite. If you want to take the most common route to the top of Everest, you'll owe the Nepal government a $25,000 royalty fee for yourself or up to $70,000 for a seven-person expedition crew.
