Mount Everest – 29,029′
Climbing Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world, represents in many ways the culmination of a climber’s mountaineering career. The decisions of whether or not to attempt it and with whom to go climb it are not to be taken lightly.
We lead professionally guided Everest climbing expeditions to the south side of the mountain. All the logistical support and leadership necessary to make this a successful climbing expedition is included in the trip fee. Our Sherpa team is highly experienced and our American guides are the best in the industry.
Unlike many other Everest climbing expeditions offered by guide services or outfitters providing logistical support, our expedition does not contain any hidden costs, extras or add-ons. We know that an undertaking like this is very stressful and we attempt to remove as many of the potential stressors that are under our control as possible in order to allow our Everest climbers to focus on the task of climbing the highest mountain in the world.
Our Everest climbing expedition will provide all the leadership and logistics necessary to climb Mt. Everest via the SE Ridge route on the Nepal side. This route has the highest success rate on the mountain. We have our own luxurious base camp, Sherpa cooks and staff. Highly supported, this team will consist of a maximum of 4 climbers per American guide, and will be supported by an average of two Sherpas per climber. This depth of Sherpa experience, coupled with low ratios of Mountain Trip guides gives our climbers an industry high level of support on the mountain.
Logistical preparations are paramount on a guided Everest climbing expedition, and our team is organized and led by Scott Woolums, an eight-expedition Everest veteran and one of the most experienced high altitude guides in the world. This is a great opportunity for qualified climbers to join a very well organized Everest trip with a proven and experienced Sherpa team, base camp services, oxygen systems, high-tech communications, and medical support. If the weather cooperates and you put in the proper training that such an endeavor requires, we feel that our acclimatization schedule and leadership will provide you with the best possible chance for reaching the summit.
Anyone considering an attempt on Mount Everest should contact Mountain Trip as far in advance as possible for additional information and to help us better determine if this is an appropriate decision for you to make at this time.
