Once a trekker completes their journey from the Khumbu icefall with a few kinds of crevasses and seracs made by the bridge ladders and you may see a couple of different Short made ice cliffs around the camp 3 which is almost protected by the sections of rock with the help of fixed lines.

It can be said as you may be the victim of high Altitude sickness changeable and complications that are really unpredictable in the manner in higher Mountain weather.

At this place, we can also get the heating abience and warm in such areas. At the time of night, we can listen to the murmuring deep sound of crevasses beneath the fixed tent in that area. From this of the direction, we can move to another direction that is base camp two.

Similarly, camp 2 has a height of 6750m above sea level and is 21000ft, situated at the icy mountain Lhoste which is a foot from where we can even move more forward to the next destination. Here are some of the bad clods roll from the low range of Himalayan valleys taken to the bottom two of this camp but some the weather is almost good at all. Here may sometimes the violent of wind that destroys some human contributions or the tents. After the completion of this camp, it will lead to next camp third,

In camp 3 at the altitude of 7100m above sea level which is 22300ft joining the Lhoste wall section Within using the fix4d of rope with some kind of prior acclimatization may come up to us to camp fourth. We have to sometimes ascend to the steep that alloe]w bands pf lose, rotten limestone and down slopping. In this region or the section while the climbers are climbing there is a most probable of the oxygen gas above the basecamp three in some of the cases while it is really needed for the climbers.

As well as in the camp fourth, its height is measured as 8400m above sea level or 26000ft. Their complete submit can be done here by just moving upward or climbing by 500m minimum distance far.
