Hiking Everest

I doubt there is much experience on here but worth a shot. I am dead set on going up Everest. I know there are tours to join but they cost 10x of 1000s of dollars just to join not including airfare etc.
Is there any possible way to just get to one of the neighbouring countries and make my own way? I am pretty experienced but not as high as Everest. Can I bring my own tent to base camp or does anyone check tent tickets each day? Same for using toilets. Is it checked if you have a camping pass?
I will have my own equipment except oxygen but I expect to buy that closer to the trial.
Food I will get from the sherpa restaurants.
I just cant get info if anyone will stop me getting to basecamp. And then as I said will people check me when at basecamp. I couls theoretically just be another person as part of a big group. And either follow them or go alone early some morning.
Any one been?

      No you’re not you fricking moron.

      As a person who has climbed the Everst 8 times let me give you an advice.

      If you mistake one of the peaks you will find out that a strange peak has a tribe of homosexuals waiting for people to mistake the peaks in order to work in their anuses.

      My tens.

      This is not /misc/, nor is it /b/. Keep your political opinions to yourself. This is a travel board. Mods please do something about these low quality posts. They need to learn a lesson.

        How is that political?
        OP is delusional and he’s going to die, you queer.
        Dude thinks his 3k peak is the same as the Everest, but with just a little bit more work. 🙂

      The based way to do this is from the Chinese side as they built a highway to the mountain, the base of it anyway, so you can just drive there, takes you right to the bottom where there's a spectacular view of the mountain, and there's no need to trek for 10 days through 1000 desperately poor sherpa villages that hit you up for money.

    >can I finesse the bureaucracy and security behind the only reason people visit this frozen shithole country?
    If you climb really fast you wouldn’t get arrested until the descent. good luck OP!

      "Climbing really fast" is nearly impossible at 8k meters but great advice otherwise

    The permit cost is around $15,000. You would also need a special mountaineering license if you aren't climbing with a group or guide that has one. I don't know the cost of that. Is anyone checking the permits? Not per se, but your presence on the mountain can pose a threat to others if you are inexperienced or ill-equipped. For that reason, if it is obvious that you are in over your head, underprepared, underresourced, generally don't know what you are doing, and don't belong there, then the other groups will most likely notify the authorities, yes.

    OP you may have mountaineering experience but not just the cost.

    Climbing Everest isn't something you can do solo (well you can but there are major caveats to it). By that I mean you will be in an expedition environment.
    If it is really a goal of yours I wouldn't try and put you down. What a lot of people do that are not rich but experienced mountaineers is get sponsored to pay for the permit and expenses and its not as hard as you think to do, but you obviously need to be a mountaineer that has some kind of experience and/or credential.

    What I would recommend is hitting up mountaineering orgs and getting used to being in an expedition. A good place to start would be a mountain like Denali which I would argue is more dangerous than Everest but its far easier and cheaper to get experience and support.
    Also unfortunately Everest has turned into a shit show with basically hyper rich people pretty much getting carried up the mountain by sherpas. Climbing Everest wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't a summit at all costs mentality and there would be less death.

      Also yeah people know if you don't have a permit at base camp. Its not like there's someone inspecting you but you will be obvious the moment you hit the icefalls which is the part of the climb that requires you to have a mountaineering permit. If you need evac for any reason and you don't have a permit you will be fricked up by Nepal legal system.

      I compare it to someone who has never scuba dived before in scuba gear. Like you can tell that person isn't a diver for example.

      Its not just Everest too, k2 and other mountains in the region have that requirement.

      Honestly mate, there's a reason why the 8km peaks are difficult.
      What previous experience do you have?
      If you haven't been higher than 4km or have experience with ice and glacier traversing then I'd advise waiting. Accumulate experience with those first, and is spot on.

      Lots of people attempt to climb Everest, lots of people die too.

    My advice would be to go up the Kangshun (East) Face, as it is less crowded. You're far less likely to have your papers checked than on the North or South Col.

    You'll need to place your own lines, so make sure you get some practice at a local climbing gym before you go.

    I would also suggest taking cold showers to acclimate as Everest can be chilly, particularly in April/May (which is the best time to take the ascent).

    Remember that Sherpas work for tips and cell service can be spotty on the mountain, so cash is always good as a backup for Venmo.

    Lastly, I wouldn't worry about the documents too much. If asked you can just say "I left them back at camp, I'll show you later" and then walk away quickly. Everybody is in a big puffy jacket / face mask anyway so it's not like they would remember you.

    Have fun man

    Why people fricking want to summot everest in 2023? Its leteral turist trap tier of mountenerieng since like +15y and its becoming worse and worse.
    >all the turist, you have to walk in line for most of the trek, some of thr climbing and all of the summiting.
    >trash everywhere
    >you have to spend arpund 2 months surrunded by people that dont give a damn about anything but standing on top of this attraction for 5min
    >even with minimal budget still cost a ton
    I dunno how anyone that loves climbing/treking can go everest atm. I know and get the mountain thrill, but theres so many better mountains to expirience it, with more serene surrundings, less polution and crowd + for cheaper price.
    At this point you can climb everest via being carried by sherpa, if you have enough money. Of course you still need to have some stamina but its a nowhere hard expirience as it was for real climbers.
    Its like 99% of people that climb everest just want to cross it out of they list, you probably can fund 2-4 expeditions to other 6-8k mountains for the price of one everest climb.
    Can imagine why people would want to climb there when other, more pristine mountains that are as hard/more harder then everest exists.

    If some legless c**t can do it, you'll do it at twice the speed. Godspeed op. Send me a postcard. You can also be the first to do it in [insert something unique here]. Maybe be the first barefoot person to ascend the mountain, like that swedish guy who runs barefoot in snow.
