Mount Everest – 29,029′
2020 Everest North Side Expedition!
In 2020 we are headed to the North Side of Everest! We’re excited to switch it up a bit this year and are leading our trip from the North side of Everest. The team will once again be led by experienced Everest guide Jacob Schmitz.
Mountain Trip’s guided Mount Everest Climbing Expeditions provide the highest level of service to give you the best chance to succeed on this climb. An expedition to the highest peak in the world, often represents the culmination of a climber’s mountaineering career, decisions of whether or not to attempt it and with whom to go climb it are not to be taken lightly. We specialize in small teams, focused on safety and reaching the summit. Our teams are led by experienced Everest Guides who love being there and have shown they have the leadership to get the team to the top!
We lead professionally guided Mount Everest climbing expeditions from both the South (Nepal) and North (Tibet) 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. Mountain Trip is an American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Accredited company, so you can be assured that your guides are not only experienced, but are also trained to the highest standards. We do not offer “Sherpa Led” expeditions with a guide or trip leader in basecamp, that just isn’t consistent with our approach to guiding.
Unlike many other Mount 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 much of the potential stress that is 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. We provide 9 bottles of Oxygen per climber, allowing us to climb at high flow oxygen on summit day and the flexibility to take a rest day or wait for weather at high camp if necessary.
Our Everest climbing expedition will provide all the leadership and logistics necessary to climb Mt. Everest. We have our own luxurious base camp, Sherpa cooks and staff. The Everest climbing 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 experience and that of our team will provide you with unmatched support. 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.
