During April-June 2006, a team of 11 climbers from Turkey will organize an expedition to Mt. Everest. The expedition has several important aspects and goals:

§         The first team-expedition from Turkey that is going to be recorded under the name of the country

§         First female ascent to the highest point of the world from Turkey

§         The first climb from Turkey that will be made without supplemental oxygen

§         Scientific endeavors that will help in explaining some of the many mysteries of the effects of altitude on human beings   

The Everest team is comprised of mountaineers who had been successful in several high altitude climbs from Turkey:

§         The team embraces 6 of 9 climbers from Turkey who had climbed over 8000 meters

§         Two of these climbers are the first female athletes that climbed an 8000er from Turkey

The 2006 Everest Turkish Expedition is going to take place in Katmandu - Nepal and Tibet between 27th of March and 10th of June. However the team has started the preparations months before. These preparations include climbs done in the mountains of Turkey, trainings in city, performance tests and introductory work to make the project public. This important event for the Turkish mountaineering history is going to be documented from the beginning to the end and accommodates amazing visual opportunities.

The team is planning to climb the mountain from its Northeast Ridge
