Everest Base Camp Itinerary
Why choose to do your expedition with us?
There are lots of providers offering the opportunity to climb to Everest Base Camp. These are some of the reasons we think we offer a better experience than most of the other providers:
- Included in our price is a training weekend in the UK. It gives us a chance to get to know you, and vice versa. It also gives us an opportunity to talk about the expedition, training you may need to do, the acclimatisation process and kit you will need on the trek.
- Jeremy has known and worked with his team out in Nepal since 1995. There are really good relationships between the crew in Nepal and us here in the UK.
- We look after our team in Nepal. We provide our guides with excellent kit so they are able to better look after you. They will have been fed very well during the expedition and should any of the local team be sick on the mountain, we will make sure they are looked after and receive the appropriate medical care.
- We make sure our porters are properly paid and do not carry too much up the valley. As a result, they may well pop back down the mountain from our next camp to help carry your daysack for you if you’d like.
- We offer a very high client : guide ratio to help look after you as we get to base camp and back again!
