I am from Bangladesh. How can I climb Mount Everest, for a reasonable price?
How much does it cost to climb Mount Everest? And how much time does this campaign usually take?
I have not climbed mount Everest, but I just came back from Pokhara, Nepal after some treks. I also went to the Himalayan Mountain Institute in Darjeeling, which is possibly the nearest place for you to get some experience before going on your adventure.
On a generous ballpark figure, I would say it will cost you about $50,000 (USD) for the entire trip.
The cost will depend on these
This web page (not affiliated) has a detailed breakdown of the costs.
It takes a lot of previous trekking experience to climb mount Everest. Basically any peak higher than 8,000m will be expensive. Usually people find someone to sponsor them, because doing the trek by yourself is beyond many of our financial limits. If you are a scout, an athlete, etc, you can probably find someone to sponsor for you.
Second best thing to climbing mt. Everest is climbing up to a base camp. They are often very cheap, and you will not need to buy expensive gear either. If you are in Kathmandu or Pokhara, the trekking companies will find you with their offers. You can arrange them yourself easily too.
A trek to Anapurna base camp will only cost about $250 with the permit and insurance, and gear hired. Note that food can be expensive, so we brought most of our food in our bags (breads, dry food, etc). It will take about 10-14 days for the entire trip.
For even cheaper treks, Poonhill would be your best bet. It takes about 4 days, and is less expensive than all other options.
In my opinion, Anarpurna is a great experience for a fraction of cost to climb mt. Everest.
It costs a hefty amount of $30000 to $80000 but on average most people pay around $45000.It also depends on whether you take a Tibetian route or the route from Nepal. But the expense largely depends on the cost of the following components:
travel up to base camp $5000-$10000
permit & insurance $7000-$11000
climbing fee $10000-$15000
insurance, supplies &misc $10000-$20000
This is just estimated cost ,and the actual cost may vary for further info you can visit the official site of the Nepal Mountaineering Association: nepalmountaineering.org.
Well talking about time, it usually takes about one month but without considering the time for preparation and training.
