Everest View Trek is also considered as Everest Panorama Trek. This is one of the most popular as well as the shortest route in the Khumbu region. Everest View Trek is preferred by those who have no enough time as well as are looking an easy way to confront the greatest natural wonder of the world with their own eyes.
Everest has always fascinated every people around the world. Thousands have already succeeded their attempt overcoming over the fears. Similarly few of them have lost their lives while seeking one of the greatest challenges. George Mallory was one of them who had made first expedition to Everest but was unsuccessful. It was in 1953 when Edmund Hillary (New Zealand) and Tenzing Norgay (Nepal) successfully reached the summit of Mount Everest through the south face. Thus, south face of Everest is highly popular among trekkers.
This panorama trek follows the similar path to Everest Base Camp in Nepal. This base camp lies on the southern face of Mount Everest. This trek covers all the popular region of Everest region including Lukla, Phakding, Namche, Khumjung, Tengboche. This trek starts and ends from and to Lukla. Everest view trek extends up to the Tengboche village.The village is located at 3,867 meters in the hidden valley of Khumbu. Here lies the largest gompa in Khumbu region known as Tengboche Monastery. Here all the trekkers stop to get a blessing from chief Lama for the success of an upcoming trekking. It is a cultural center as well as beautiful region surrounded by high Himalayan ranges as well as decorated with rhododendron forests in spring season. The winding path continues through the bank of the Dudh Koshi River to the Phakding village, the lush vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, suspended bridges, rivers, farmlands. Not only this you will have great opportunities to encompass the Sherpa villages, farmlands, monasteries and finally…...

...leadership and decision making from the unfortunate events that took place on Mount Everest several years ago. Survivors have offered many competing explanations for this tragedy. While they have focused on the tactical blunders, this research examines the underlying cognitive, interpersonal, and systemic forces that played a role in the incident. This conceptual analysis suggests that cognitive biases, team beliefs about interpersonal risk taking, and system complexity interacted to create a fatal disaster. Incredible achievement and great tragedy unfolded on the treacherous slopes of Everest on May 10, 1996. TVventy-three people reached the summit along the South Col route in Nepal on that day, including Rob Hall and Scott Fischer, two of the world's most skilled and experienced high-altitude climbers. Unfortunately, Hall, Fischer, and three members of their expeditions died as a storm enveloped the mountain during their descent. Others barely escaped with their lives after many hours wandering in the dark while braving subzero temperatures. Hall, the leader of the Adventure Consultants expedition, had established an impressive track record of Everest ascents, guiding thirty-nine climbers to the summit over the previous six years. Fischer, the leader of the Mountain Madness team, also had an impressive reputation as a high-altitude climber, though he had only reached the Everest summit once. Each expedition included the team I am grateful to David Ager,......

...BUS 410 Moritz Straube, Mario Pacheco, Alex Rutherford, Haitham Al Najjar Prof. Bresciani P & G Case Study Mount Everest Humans often feel the need to conquer Earth and explore it to the fullest. Among the biggest challenges the planet has for humans, stands the quest to climb Mount Everest. At almost 9,000 meters above sea level, in between Nepal and Tibet, the quest to climb Mount Everest has become the point of no return for some climbers and the ultimate conquest for other climbers. Since May 29, 1953 up to December 1996, 846 persons had conquered successfully Mount Everest Climbing Mount Everest became available to the public through entrepreneurs who were visionary enough to apply their passion to their profits in the year of 1996.  Such is the case of Hall, founder of Adventure Consultants and Fischer, founder of Mountain Madness; each one of them had a passion for climbing and a vision for profit from leading teams to the top of Mount Everest, the summit. Together they both lead the largest commercial expeditions. Their experiences of their journey, which began in May 6, 1996, can be used to discuss different aspects of international organizational behavior. Leadership, communication, organizational structure, and visualization are key aspects of organizational behavior for businesses worldwide which are also related to the quest of conquering Mount Everestf. Hall and Fischer began as leaders of their organizations. Their climbing experiences......

We should also consider the brand acceptance of international competitors and the coverage of the market. In this point of view we have outlined two markets that can be the first ones to enter. The first one is Georgia, a market that is similiar to the Armenian, can be more or less controllable from the head office in Yerevan and needs improvement of service quality in all industries of the economy. The same industries are considered to be targets:  Financial Institutions/ Banks  Education  Tourism  Healthcare Today the major three banks in Georgia, TBC, Bank of Georgia and Cartu banks control more than 72% of the market share, don't have QMS and other solutions but will start implementing QMS in their all branches in near future as they started to negotiate with the main QMS providers.

...and the assignment of members to groups, each group undertook the Everest Simulation – a teamwork and leadership challenge requiring groups to ascent a virtual Mount Everest. Drawing upon a range of fundamental organisational and managerial concepts and coupled with frequent challenges, the simulation effectively replicated a dynamic and teamwork based organisational environment. The simulation seeks to test interpersonal relationships and group dynamics by creating dissonance on both an individual and group level, as groups and group members strive to achieve both individual and group goals. This report will critically analyse the very processes used to undertake the Everest Simulation, along with results, focusing on the three concepts of ‘Communication’, ‘Groups and Teams’ and ‘Leadership’. These are of critical importance to forming an analysis of not only the simulation itself, but also a broader organisational and managerial situation and the correlation between managerial theory and practice and the Everest Simulation. The transition in dynamics within the group between the different simulations, and the solving of numerous challenges corresponds to the improvement in our results of the simulation. Moreover, this transition and triumph also elucidates the practicality of managerial theories associated with ‘communication’, ‘groups and teams’ and ‘leadership’ and their applicability to not only the Everest Simulation, my personal and group results, but also the wider......

Everest Simulation

...Leadership and Teamwork A Reflective Report on the Everest Simulation The Everest simulation used the dramatic context of a Mount Everest expedition as related to management concepts exploring the role of leadership, effective communication, and team work to achieve success. The simulation required students to work in cohesive teams consisting of five members, where each individual was assigned a specific role and a goal. The roles included the team leader, physician, environmentalist, photographer, and marathoner. Some goals were contradictory in order to assess how the team reacted to complex and sometimes conflicting situations. Before the actual simulation started, the group discussed the general approach and how to deal with situations where personal goals collided with the team’s goals. The distinction between working with a team and working as a team was the main lesson I learned from the simulation. Listed below are objective barriers our team encountered during the simulation, some of which we succeeded in overcoming and some of which we did not. We succeeded at: 1. Planning: Good decision making seldom took place by chance. We fully discussed the decision making process and always took action as a team. 2. Performance: The need for individual high scores did not encourage team members to act in detriment of the team. Although each team member was assigned individual roles and tasks to accomplish, we all aimed for the shared goal first. 3. Cohesion: Even......

Mount Everest

...After understanding and analyzing the tragedy of Mount Everest , May 1996 that took lives of eight climbers during summit attempts, we can conclude that the tragedy may occur due to several root causes whether it is by nature or human error. The major factor that leads to this tragedy is that all the climbers are lack of team work and communication. Even though they are in the same expedition but they have their own individual’s goal, eager to reach at the summit. For example, Jon Krakauer one of the clients of Adventure Consultant said that he felt disconnected from the climbers around him, they were a team in name only. Supposedly, during the acclimatization exercises, the climbers should take time to get to know each other, learn their responsibilities as a team build their confidence and trust to their teammates, instead they were doubting each other whether they could rely own their team member during difficult times. That also might cause this tragedy, which is lack of trust towards team member. One of the potential causes of the tragedy was overconfidence. Overconfidence occurs when leaders believe that their experience, abilities, skill, or maybe even luck, will allow them to overcome any challenge they face. Research has shown that such overconfidence can lead to poor decision making as leaders substitute their own personal skill for careful analysis of the situation and planning. Hall, in particular, may have been prone to overconfidence. He had reached the summit...

Everest Report Mgmt1001

...MGMT1001: Everest Report Andrew Lau A critical and reflective self-evaluation of my experiences during the Everest team simulation in the contexts of ‘attitudes, personalities & perceptions’, ‘power & conflict’ and ‘groups & teams’. Executive Summary The Everest simulation is a team simulation designed to emulate real life group processes and the diverse range of intergroup interactions this entails. Developed by Harvard Business School, participants are grouped into teams of 5 (with an optional sixth member, the observer) that make a virtual climb up Mount Everest. Performance is assessed through both individual and team goals that are provided throughout the simulation. Members were allocated into groups randomly within tutorial groups and assigned roles within the simulation. I was assigned the role of environmentalist, but assumed the informal role as one of the team’s leaders. Our group as a whole managed to achieve a satisfactory 67% of team goals, and I managed to achieve 57% of my individual goals. The objective of this report is to critically analyse and reflect upon the intergroup interactions that lead to the successes and failings of our team. These successes and failings will be viewed through the lens of the theories and concepts developed in the course in order to gain insight into group processes and human behaviour. The report starts with analysing and breaking down human cognitive processes and social interactions through the......

...Trek Case 1. The role of the buying center at Trek is that the group of individuals working there are “responsible for finding the best suppliers and vendors for the organization’s purchases”. At Trek’s buying center it consists of a purchasing manager, buyers who identify domestic and international sources of materials and components, and representatives from research and development, production and quality control. Also at Trek, purchasing managers are most likely to comprise the buying center in a decision to select a new supplier. Sometimes, in important technical purchases, it will be representatives from research and development, production, and quality control. It is very important to Trek that these new suppliers must benefit the company, for example in a way that has an environmental impact. These individuals are the deciders who have formal/informal power to select or approve when a supplier should receive a contract. 2. Trek requires four criteria when identifying potential suppliers. These are quality, delivery capabilities, price, and environmental impact of their production process. In regards to these criteria, current suppliers receive scores on the number of defects in large quantity of supplies, whether just-in-time orders made their deadlines, if the target prices were maintained, or if recycled packaging was used. Once a business is selected, it is continuously evaluated based on the elements of those four criteria. 3. One of......

Disaster can strike without warning, leaving the most competent and experienced professional high altitude mountain climber gasping for breath, and desperately fighting to stay alive. Death is not uncommon to mountaineers who ascend Mt. Everest, a simple mistake, faulty judgments, miscommunication, wrong decisions or complacency can lead to disastrous consequences. Indeed, climbing Mt. Everest cannot be accomplished alone, individuals need to work together as a team, cooperate and collaborate with one another, and rely on one another's capabilities to ascend the mountain summit successfully.

Everest Essay Final

...MGMT 1001 Assignment 2 – Report – 30% of Final Mark Report Focus: Write a report reflecting on your experiences of the Everest group simulation exercise this semester with reference to concepts and theories encountered in this course. Executive Summary Everest, a virtual game designed by Harvard Business School and Forio Business Simulations, forces players to challenge problems that arise and conquer them as a team. After viewing a frightening video that portrays the mountain climbing experience, students are arranged in groups of five and assigned different roles with varying description and goals, ranging from ambitious athletes to preservative environmentalists. Confronting numerous challenges such as oxygen scarcity, unpredictable weather and volatile health conditions, teams progress up the mountain, with the ultimate goal of reaching the summit. The game is intelligent in its simplistic design – it gives different goals and information to each player. The physician has knowledge on numerous diseases, but is unable to use it if the marathoner fails to announce her critical health condition – a probable situation as the game encourages players to hide the information. In hindsight, our team was given two attempts to complete the simulation. The first simulation was conducted with little experience and understanding of group members and roles. Formation of conspiracies led to discomfort due to conflicting personal goals, limited resources,...

Mount Everest

...1 1 Mount Everest-1996 2 2 Executive Summary Background The case study describes a team ascending Mount Everest led by Scott Fischer and Rob Hall. The primary concept behind the case study is to distinguish qualities in the team’s plan, action, and most importantly leadership. The clients and the leaders in the report show lack of readiness to ascend the mountain. Fischer along with Hall led many people to their deaths because of bad leadership skills. The report outlines how the two leaders failed to communicate with their team. The expedition team needed a better action plan with clear and concise steps to follow in order to keep everyone alive. The breakdown and analysis of the case is reported here. Results Scott Fischer and Rob Hall were not prepared to be leaders. Their skills were lacking and they were only doing things for themselves. Fischer and Hall were clearly acting in the pre-conventional stage of development. They did not value any objections to ideas or procedures. The two leaders acted in a high power distance setting, neither were comfortable allowing inexperienced individuals have a voice. They failed to keep in mind they were running a business. Their actions were the primary reason many climbers lost their lives. The report outlines the communication errors and expresses potential solutions that could have saved lives. Conclusion Communication is a primary factor in the business environment. Leaders need to communicate their......

Everest Sim

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Everest group simulation was an exercise which encouraged five students to play a unique and vital role on a team of hikers, attempting to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The simulation powerfully encapsulated the concepts and theories learnt in this course, illustrating the power of groups. The purpose of this report is to reflect on the experiences encountered during the Everest team experience and identify how these experiences related to the course. It comprises of a description and analysis of the Everest Team experience, a critical analysis of the team’s performance and results and a critical analysis of the team’s communication interactions. Upon taking part in both the simulations, it was discovered that the team score was dramatically improved, from 46% to 83%. This improvement was attributed to the team’s enhanced performance, due to progressing through the team development stages, as our performance was superior in the ‘norming’ and ‘performing’ stages rather than the ‘forming’ and ‘storming’ stages. Another factor which enhanced the team’s performance and thus, team score was the alterations in group structure. By assigning roles to each team member, a defined structure was associated with a distinct change in direction. In addition, changing from directive decision-making to analytic as well as collaborating instead of forcing and accommodating to resolve conflict revealed improved team dynamics leading to an overall better result.......
