Welcome to the first Podcast for the Everest 2023 season.
In this podcast, I talk about what we can expect this year, now with the Tibet side closed again. I expect 2023 to be a big year for Everest-Nepal. With the COVID-19 pandemic letting up, Nepal is open. It expects many foreigners attracted by Nepali operators marketing low prices and requiring minimal climbing experience but providing tons of Sherpa support. I expect almost 1,000 total summits broken out by 400-450 foreigners from the Nepal side supported by 450-500 Sherpas. We can anticipate three to six deaths on the Nepal side. Nepal reportedly still requires a COVID vaccination to enter the country. I strongly advise checking with your country’s embassy in Nepal for the latest COVID regulations, even though they seem to have loosened them substantially.
Best of luck to all for a safe and rewarding season.
