Everest has an altitude of 8,849 meters above sea level.
The Fresnillo mountaineer Armando Navarrete Ulloa seeks to reach the summit of Everest, the highest mountain on the surface of the world, with an altitude of 8,849 meters above sea level.
“To conquer the highest altitude in the world, I must be prepared to face many challenges, and acclimatization is the most important part of the trip,” he says.
The acclimatization process begins on the first day of the trip, with a week-long trek to base camp that helps the body slowly adapt and connect with the mountain.
After a few days at base camp, the further acclimatization rotation begins, where you will spend a few nights at higher camps with thin air and unforeseen weather that will test your mind and body.
“Once you conquer the rotation, it’s time to prepare for the final mission and wait for the perfect weather window, following the opening route of the summit by our brave sherpas (guides)” , explained the professional mountaineer.
The mountain extends between the territories of China and Nepal, but its summit is located in China, in the Tibet Autonomous Region. The wind can blow at a speed of more than 200 miles per hour. It takes approximately 40 days to reach the top of Mount Everest, in order for the body to get used to high altitudes.
