Everest

Mount Everest is the worlds highest mountain and thus one of the “Seven Summits”. Standing at 8848m (29,029ft) on the border of Nepal and China, an expedition on Mount Everest is truly a life-changing experience.
We begin our trip by trekking through the Khumbu valley to help us acclimate to our new home at Everest Base Camp (17,552ft). Along this trek we get to experience the Amazing Sherpa culture, Sleeping in “Tea Houses” and taking in the grandness of the inspiring Himalayan peaks… A new view every step of the way.
Once we arrive at EBC (Everest Base Camp) we will be greeted by Camp staff and given a tour of our home for the next 6-7 weeks. Our facilities at EBC are first class, with individual sleeping tents, a comfortable heated dining tent, as well as toilet and shower facilities. Our Cook is trained to provide clean, healthy food with good variety. Fresh veggies and meat delivered every few days.
On the mountain, we will be assisted by our strong and experienced Sherpa climbing team, As well as Experienced Western Guides. We begin Oxygen use at Camp II and use high flow on summit day.
We are committed to a safe, well planned and skillfully executed expedition. You are expected to show up prepared, fit and healthy.

Descending the Ridge of Mount Everest | May 23, 2019

"I have gone on many trips with Todd, all around the world. Rock climbing, ice climbing, altitude mountaineering; we have summited Everest together, ice climbed in Canada, rock climbed in Sardinia. He always makes every trip fun, challenging and memorable. I have never seen anyone who works so hard but somehow makes the entire trip seem so effortless and relaxing. The most important thing to consider when you chose a mountain or climbing guide is how they will react when things don’t go according to plan — as can happen on any trip dependent on weather and geography. For those situations, Todd is the best. Level headed, always considering risks and safety before making decisions. I have trusted him with my life and would trust him with it again and again."
