I have worked with Kili Sherpa and his staff of highly experienced Base Camp Managers, porters and high altitude guides for all (5) of my Mt. Everest expeditions to the summit and three treks to Everest Base Camp between 2000-2013. Kili and his team are successful at what they do because they pay attention to every detail to ensure safety and comfort of their clients. Kili is well known and highly regarded throughout the villages leading to Everest Base Camp and throughout the Everest Base Camp community. As a result, High Altitude Dreams clients receive exceptional treatment throughout the Khumbu Valley. He and Sagar (his right hand man) are attentive and willing to go the extra mile to provide dedicated staff, excellent equipment and outstanding cooks and food at high altitude. You will not be eating the horrible, freeze-dried package food when you are on a High Altitude Dreams adventure. Kili and Sagar are professional and highly organized.They run their company like a well-oiled machine. Lapka Cheri, one of Kili's veteran high altitude Sherpa guides, is one of the most pleasant and caring human beings that you will ever meet. I have had the good fortune of having Lapka on each of my expedition teams and guided treks to Base Camp. My clients rave about him every time we catch up and reminisce about our Everest adventure. I will be returning to Everest in 2015 and look forward to working with Kili and his team again.
I have been working with High Altitude Dreams since 2003. With them, we summited Everest in 2004, we went to Cho-Oyu in 2005 and now we are going to K2 in 2006. For the biggest mountain in the world we need the best support and this is what we found with High Altitude Dreams. They were professional and so helpful before, during and after the expedition. They are the best there is no doubt about it.
Thanks for everything.
I have guided various trips in Nepal and Tibet, from Everest Base-Camp treks to trekking peaks to Ama Dablam and 8000m. climbing expeditions. Kili Sherpa's High Altitude Dreams has provided top-notch logistics, knowledgeable and friendly local guides and the best climbing Sherpa's available on all of those trips.
I have worked all over the world with many different companies and I cannot imagine doing a trip in Nepal or Tibet without Kili and his staff. They are more than just a business, they genuinely care about their client's well being and work very hard to build high quality relationships on many different levels. The service is personable and friendly whether it is a two-person trek or an Everest Climb!
Whenever I travel in Nepal I meet people who know Kili. He is well known for his integrity, honesty and achievements. If you want to "get up" your dream climb or do that incredible trek that you have always wanted to do then stack the odds in your favor and hire High Altitude Dreams to take you there!
In 2004 the staff at High Altitude Dreams helped made a long standing dream of mine come true, outfitting my group for one of the world's most spectacular high altitude treks linking the remote and rarely visited valleys between Makalu and Everest, climbing Mera Peak, and crossing five 18,000 foot passes with views of five of the world's highest peaks, Kanchejunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Everest and Cho Oyu. After two decades of expeditions in the Himalaya photographing for clients such as The North Face, Kili and his crew provided by far the finest service of any company I've worked with. Having lost our original outfitter just a month before our trip was scheduled to begin, Kili quickly picked up all the pieces, arranging staff, permitting, equipment, and transportation in and out of the mountains. Once we were in the Himalaya his crew performed at the highest standard, the tents and equipment were top of the line, and we enjoyed the best food I've ever experienced on an expedition. Whether climbing or trekking I couldn't recommend High Altitude Dreams more.
