The Bulgarian National Everest Expedition in 1984 consisted of Avram Avramov (leader), Christo Prodanov (deputy leader), Ognyan Baldjiski, Dr. Stayko Kulaksazov, Stefan Kaloyanov, Metodi Savov, Milan Ognyanov, Dimitar Bardarev, Slavi Dermendjiev, Trifon Djambazov, Kantcho Dolapchiev, Kiril Doskov, Todor Grigorov, Lyubomir Iliev, Georgi Imov, Kostas Kanidis, Zapryan Khorozov, Nikolay Petkov, Stamen Stanimirov, Dinko Tomov, Petko Totev, Ivan Valtchev, Doychin Vasilev, Lyudmil Yankov. The whole team reached Base Camp on March 18.  A particularly dry winter with little snow eased the work of establishing camps and eliminated avalanche danger. 

Camp 1 was established at 6050 meters on March 21. Camp 2 at 6770 meters on March 27 and Camp 3 at 7170 meters on April 3. Because of gale winds, they dug a snow cave large enough for 15 climbers at Camp 2 and for 6 climbers at Camp 3. After some days of bad weather, on April 5, two teams of seven Bulgarians and seven Sherpas set out. On April 18 and Sherpa Chowang Ringie established Camp 4 at 7520 meters. On the following day at 2:30 P. M. they got to the site of Camp 5 at 8120 meters and set up camp. Djambazov, Kanidis and Tomov completed establishment of Camp 4 and remained there to sleep.  Continued
