    NAMASTE to all of you first.
    climbing something like everest will be very time consuming as it almost need more than half month of training, thosand dollars worth clothes, and other criteria and expenses but still its not sure that you will surely made it or reach on top (bad weathers for unlucky people some time) in one attempt, or return home safe. so will you like to climb everest anyday the highest mountain in the world someday in your life.

    Give me your reason why or why not
    and by the way welcome to nepal if your answer is yes.

      i like the idea of it but the thrill doesn't out way the risk for me, avalanches, cold, air pressure and movies that don't end well puts me off lol.
      Funny I would go sky diving however even if it has its risk, good luck if you decide to go!

        dude i a nepali , i will do it one day ,thats my dream but wait a min did you just say cold, it remind me of a 16 yrs old sherpa who lost his five fingers from his two hands(three from one and two from another) due to frostbite, a change in my thought

    No, I don't really fancy that - it sounds likes way too much hard work and torture for me! I don't think I'd ever have the stamina to make it even half way up! However, I would very much like to go to Nepal and Kathmandu.

      You will be welcomed in kathmandu and there are more places in nepal to visit than kathmandu( and you can avoid trekking if you want but real fun is there)  but of course you dont like to walk( stamina i know)

          but trekking mean climbing as its done in rural mountainous area where vechile are not available but they are lots of other thing you can see and do here without climbing part, can i ask you when most of the people even dont know about nepal how come you know about kathmandu

          and NAMASTE by the way

            I think the majority of people do know about Nepal and Kathmandu...I have seen them on TV, read about them in books...I think Michael Palin's programme (Full Circle, I think it was) was quite informative. He is a Brit who tours the world, mostly off the beaten track, making interesting travel programmes and getting to know the locals.

                I saw Michael Palin's show too. I'd like to see Nepal one day and do some walks but not Mt Everest, don't have that kind of stamina. smile

    no, I don't think so. it would be beautiful to visit the area, but no climbing mt. everest.
    I did read Peter Jenkins book years ago about his climbing expeditition to everest in the 1980's.  the title is Across China. It is excellent reading. I can't imagine climbing it!

        Think of the view from a plane window....

        Sorry, the thought of freezing my tokus off to walk up a mountain doesn't appeal much.  I'd rather stay low enough to go fishing. smile

            Me neither! I don't see the point. Every winter climbers die on the Scottish mountains because they wanted to go climbing in avalanche conditions. I have never understood the want. "I want to climb a mountain - because it is there" doesn't make sense to me. Hire a helicopter and look at it from the top if you wanted to see the view. Everest? That's just mental IMO.
