bader almofawezz hi, todd this estimated cost is just for the payment for nepal goverment to climb mt.everst or its for the whole trip ?
Skylar Givens
Skylar Givens Looks like the total cost. I would expect to pay at least $35,000+ by the time all is said and done.

Todd Hi Bader. It was an estimate of the whole trip, but Skylar has a better idea of costs since he's already booked. We're going to do some research over the next few weeks and put up a blog post comparing costs/inclusions from the major operators.

bader almofawezz hi todd what if someone have a budget less than 10,000$ and want to climb alone is this possible ?

Todd
Todd Not legally, due to the cost of the permit. With $10k, I'd probably do a 12-day technical mountaineering course and then climb a peak like Aconcagua, Ama Dablam, etc. Or if you don't need the course, maybe one of the easier 7000m or 8000m peaks. The permits are much cheaper.

Skylar Givens If you are caught, regardless if you successfully climbed it or not, they will detain you and never allow you to come back to the country. There are government officials at base camp that do check up on things. I know China (Tibet) is especially strict about this. You might look into climbing from the North side as it is significantly cheaper. Not worth the risk in my opinion. Mountain climbing is a patience game. My advice is to wait until you can afford the cost.

mpreihs Mountain climbing, especially Everest, is about rules and about team work. Not about scamming and shortcuts. Bader, perhaps your personality is better suited for something that won't get you in trouble - like sneaking up Everest on your own is sure to do. Check out the train ride around India. Looks like a great trip. Good luck.

mpreihs As Skyler has pointed out, one can approach Mount Everest from the southern, Nepalese side, or from the northern, Tibetan (Chinese) side. Climbing permits issued in China cost around $4,000 and include many support services to Advanced Base Camp. Permits issued in Nepal cost $10,000 and don’t include services at all. However, the northern routes are longer, more dangerous, and much more technical than the southern routes. Your likelihood of summiting from the north is lower and your likelihood of dying on a northern route is higher.
In 2006, a British climber paid a budget, Kathmandu-based trekking company about $7,500 to arrange for a climbing permit, food, and minimal services to Base Camp on the north, Tibetan side of the mountain. He climbed alone, without the aid of a Sherpa or guide, and bought only a couple bottles of oxygen rather than the usual five. He also chose not to rent an emergency radio. No one knows exactly what happened during his climb, but his near lifeless body was found by a succession of descending climbers, who tried but were unable to revive or rescue him. Tragically, his death on the Northeast Ridge was only one of eleven deaths on Mount Everest in 2006, making it the second most deadly spring season on record.
Can it be done inexpensively and solo? Yes.
However, the chances of a successful summit are quite low.
It's a fact. If you want to increase your chances of a successful summit of Everest, it's going to be expensive.

Todd You're talking about David Sharpe right? It was interesting to read everyone's different version of 2006 and watch the Himex television series (can't remember the name). On one hand, it's unthinkable to leave someone like that. But then it's unthinkable to be so ill-prepared. It reminded me of these leaked video tapes of the wars in Iraq and Afg. When you actually see people indiscriminately killing each other, it reminds you that war is brutal. I think 2006 on Everest was similar in that it showed mountaineering (especially on Everest) isn't always pretty.

mpreihs Yes, That's who I was referring to. So may theories and conjecture as to what happened that day on the mountain. Without a doubt, a huge tragedy. The bottom line - ill prepared and a bit of bad luck yields pretty ugly results on the mountain.
