    It is estimated that the entire trip, from when you leave your home until you arrive back again, takes about two and a half months. This estimate includes buying supplies, arranging travel visas, and adjusting to the high altitudes at base camp. However on average, it takes a climber about 4 days to reach the top of Mount Everest from base camp (and then probably about equal time to get down again). There are a total of 15 different routes that you can take to reach the summit, with varying distances and therefore time estimates.
