Everest Basecamp


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.



The “Seven Summits” are the highest mountains on each of the world’s seven continents. These peaks are: Denali 20,310 in North America, Aconcagua 22,834’ in South America, Mt. Vinson 16,064’ in Antarctica, Kilimanjaro 19,340’ in Africa, Mt. Elbrus 18,513’ for the European continent, Carstensz Pyramid 16,023’ in Oceania, and Mt. Everest 29,035’ in Asia. The accomplishment of climbing this list mountains is a marvelous achievement.


An Expedition Climbing The Highest Mountains

The Seven Summits as a goal was first completed by Dick Bass in 1985 with Mt. Kosciuszko as his consideration for the for the highest peak in Australia. A year later the famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner also completed the Seven Summits with his addition of Carstensz. The Reinhold list is what most now consider to be the true Seven Summits.


Why Chose Todd Passey + ITCOG?

Todd Passey, owner and lead guide of ITCOG has twice guided all the Seven Summits. Some of these peaks; like Denali and Mt. Vinson he has guided more than twenty times. Needless to say we know the circuit well.
Each and every mountain on this list is beautiful and amazing in it’s own rite. Combine climbing all seven and it is quite the achievement and the fulfillment of a dream for many. Notably, climbing the seven summits is not only a fulfilling mountaineering achievement, but it is also a great cultural experience. Embarking on an expedition to any one of these mountains, you cannot help but be immersed in the lives and cultures of the locals who help us achieve our goals. These people and experiences is the true gratification.
