Let`s climb Mount Everest? Well.. maybe not after you know how much it`ll cost!

There are some people who have a bucket list of climbing some mountain... but maybe not Mount Everest but it`s possible to climb one and could be on someones but they must be mighty rich to afford it.

I`m not very much into nature or would I make it to the top to climb this mountain but I was intrigued to see how much it would cost to climb the highest mountain in the world and your jaws will drop.. it is approximately <strong>$82,900</strong> to climb Mount Everest. I wonder if you get a discount if its for two, lol.

Price Breakdown:

Travel expense is anywhere from $2,375 to $6300
Getting to the Everest Base is $2,150
Climbing fees and deposit is anywhere from $19,700 to $37,700
EBC equipment and cooks is $9,300
Oxygen and climbing Sherpas $8,525
Gear $7,000
Misc (Medical kit, communications, evacuation) $8,250 - $12,000

The price of this trip is compared to a Porsche 911 Carrera that cost $82,100. <strong>After knowing the price and you can also risk your life: Would you still want to climb Mount Everest?</strong> Car or trip? Car that will last you longer than what a months worth of adventure?

Either way, I don`t think I would be able to survive this ... it`s hard to climb cause of the altitude cause your bodies not used to it. I rather spend that money and travel the world.
