Everest Expedition From South
Nepal Normal route
Generally, Everest is being scaled through the four different routes. Among them, South East Face is normal route and if you follow this, four camps to be made to summit the mountain. If you follow the South West Face need to have six camps and is the hardest one.
Everest is an impressively beautiful place if one can ignore the piles of rubbish from several decades of mountaineering expeditions. I would like to suggest you allow three months for your whole trip depending on your physical and climatic conditions.
