Mt Everest in Tibet straddles the east section of the Nepal/Tibet border, with its northern side lying in the Tingri Country. Before 1949 all approaches had to be made from Tibet as Nepal was closed. Once the latter opened its doors that of the former were shut. It was only in 1980 that Tibet was reopened for expeditions and with that a whole new world of exciting opportunities unfolded. Since the earliest Himalayan expeditions the North Ridge has represented staggering achievement. The route is complex and difficult and the summit day is long and tiring but the allure of climbing the Everest from the Tibet side is always magical. Base camp is established at Rongbuk glacier at 5,180m though the real climbing starts at camp 1 at an elevation of 7,000m.
