A trip to Mount Everest’s summit costs about $25,000 to $60,000, and if you’re planning to take the climb the peak, you should be warned, because sometimes the climb can also cost you your life. Climbers seeking to climb the summit usually spend a substantial amount of time within the death zone. This is the zone that is higher than 26,000 feet. The death zone is where climbers have to face significant challenges such as altitude sickness, frostbite, extreme weather conditions, and avalanches to survive the mountain’s higher regions. Unfortunately, not all of the climbers survive. Many climbers up Everest have said that the hardest part of the climb is neither the dangerous and strenuous ascent nor descent, but it is the fact that they will be passing more than 240 dead bodies frozen on the mountain.
