An incredible and thrilling chance to scale the top of the world, Mount Everest Expedition by Bharal Adventure truly fulfills your desire to set foot on the top of the world, i.e., the peak of Mount Everest, the highest peak of the world.

Also known by the name Sagarmatha, literally meaning “the head of the sky”, Mount Everest was first successfully scaled by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in the year 1953. Climbing Mount Everest is one of the most challenging yet more fulfilling expedition and if you ever desired to scale this highest pinnacle of the world, this is your opportunity to chase your dream.

Although moderate in height and length by contemporary standards, Mount Everest Expedition was the first ride for Disney to have its train’s travels both forward and backward. This is accomplished through two sets of track switches, one before the rear segment and one after. This was the second Disney roller coaster to run backwards, the first being Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril: Backwards! At Disneyland Resort Paris(2000–2004). Expedition Everest, however, was the first Disney roller coaster to switch between forward and backward sections during a single ride.The mountain facade, the Yeti audio-animatronics’, and the roller coaster are three independent structures. Each structure reaches the ground-level and does not touch the other two structures. This was achieved via 4-D scheduling software that told builders how to construct it.

Mount Everest Expedition is often compared to the 1959 Matterhorn Bobsleds roller coaster at Disneyland, which also features a snowy mountain setting and an “abominable snowman” figure throughout the ride. Expedition Everest’s mountain is made from 1,800 tons of steel and painted with 2,000 gallons of paint. It is the tallest artificial mountain in the world, but not, as occasionally cited, the tallest point in Florida. It is Disney’s 18th mountain-themed attraction. As of 2012, there are 20 mountain-themed attractions.

The artificial mountain is a model, not of Mount Everest, but of the fictional “forbidden mountain” guarded by the yeti in the story created by Walt Disney Imagineering for the attraction. Everest is represented by the barren background peak on the far right, which is made to seem far in the distance (an example of forced perspective).

The challenging Mount Everest Expedition begins from the scenic yet thrilling flight to Lukla from where more than two months long trek into the mighty Himalayas begin. This 71 days expedition offers trainings and practices as you trek into higher altitude in the harsh weather conditions to scale the top of the world. Proper trainings on use of climbing equipments and techniques are provided along with the constant acclimatization activities so as to ensure minimal injury or risks as you aspire to set your foot on the “head of the sky”.
