We have handled both foreign-guided and exclusively Sherpa-guided
Everest expeditions and put many clients on the summits of Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, and Ama Dablam. For those with different goals, we
shorter, less expensive expeditions to Everest Camp 2 and the Western Cwm. In addition; we independently arrange custom
trips according to clients’/groups'/wishes.
With a dedicated staff of more than 30
climbing Sherpas and 7 UIAGM certified guides, representing
over 150 successful summits of Everest, many with experience on Cho Oyu,
Manalsu, and Ama Dablam, and more than 15 years of experience for
many of them, we are proud of our services and happy to provide
references if requested.
Our cooks and kitchen teams, some with experience
of more then 20 years, serve 3 excellent meals a day, and if special
dietary requests are made with advance notice, we can provide whatever
kind of foods you desire.
We are also proud of our porter service. Porters
are well-equipped, clothed and paid, and we provide them with medical
services as needed and evacuation and life insurance. In addition,
we use yaks for gear transport to all Base Camps as needed.
We have an extensive inventory of
high-quality gear, stored in various convenient locations. On the
trail, we provide tents, a shower tent, toilet tent, and dining
tent with chairs, and tables. We have medical kits and a Gamow Bag
at Base Camp, as well as propane heaters for dining tents. For
expedition clients we have radio communications at and above Base
Camp. At base camp we have solar power facilities for
charging electronics, a dining tent with insulated floor, full
kitchen facilities with oven, comfortable sit-down fiber composite
toilet facilities, and hot water showers. We have satellite
phones available upon request, call charges apply. North Face VE-25
individual tents are provided for climbers at Base Camp. For those clients going beyond camp 3 on Everest, we provide
high quality oxygen masks, regulators and the lightest oxygen bottles
available today as well as fixed lines, North Face tents, cooking
equipment, primus gas stoves, high altitude food, and of course the
best climbing sherpas!
