Is Everest Expedition so expensive?
There are a lot of reasons for Mount Everest climbing being moderately expensive. For example, the climbers pose a real threat to the local environment and ecosystem of that area. That is why the Nepalese government charges a lot of money to anyone who wants to climb to compensate the people in that area. Apart from that, you will have to buy a lot of expensive climbing gear. You do not want to save money on shopping for this type of expedition because it is a deadly climb and the only thing protecting you will be your mountain climbing gear.
Apart from that, you will also have to pay to your local guides, tourism companies, airline tickets, and more. But it is all worth it if you are successful at the end of the day.
