Trip Overview

Ask an adventurer about their dream, and they will answer you with a word; EVEREST. Who would not want to reach the top of the world? Who would not want to touch the sky? It’s the trip of the lifetime, the Everest Expedition. Mount Everest, also known as The Sagarmatha in Nepali is the tallest peak on earth with an altitude of 8848.86m. The southern face lies in Nepal whereas the northern face is in Tibet. In 1715, China surveyed the mountain for the first time while they were mapping Chinese territory and depicted it as Mount Qomolangma. British Indian government 1856 again measured Mount Everest during their Great Trigonometry Survey. Back then, it was named Peak XV and said to be 8840m tall.

Peak XV was renamed after Sir George Everest as Mount Everest, the name given in his honor, who was a lead surveyor in 1856. Sir George was a Welsh Surveyor; he was the surveyor-general of India for thirteen years from 1830. Everest has fascinated mountaineers all around the globe since the 1920s when Tibet opened climbing in the early 1920s. In 1922 British Expedition team led by Charles Bruce tried to scale the summit of Mount Everest for the first time. It was Edward Norton in his second attempt along with the British Expedition team that set the height of 8572m. The mountaineers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine disappeared on the third attempt. Mallory's body was found in 1999. There were several attempts made to Everest before the successful attempt made by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on 29 May 1953 via the South route. It is now reported that around 1000 ascent attempts are made every year.

We will take the southern route to the summit. This trip suits those who have previous experiences of a few 7000m peaks or even more. The real trek apparently starts from the Base Camp and to reach the base camp takes you around 7 days on foot. We will move on to Camp I (6,065m) where we will see the Khumbu glacier.  Khumbu Glacier is around 450m on a gradual slope to Camp II (6,750m) and around 610m to Camp III (7,300m). Camp III is located at the head of Lhotse. From this point onwards, you will need oxygen cylinders. You will reach Camp IV (7,910m) after just crossing 8000m elevations. This point is also known as the Death Zone.

Mount Everest Expedition is undoubtedly a lifetime opportunity. Nevertheless, these expeditions encounter many hindrances such as high altitude, severe weather conditions, and avalanches. One must be well trained before actually trying it. You need to get your body ready for the 8848.86m-foot climb to Everest's summit. Depending on your current level of fitness, you need to train for several months before you start your ascent. A climber must build his/her cardiovascular strength along with muscular strength; oxygen level drops by 60-70 percent from sea level. Also, make sure you can carry big backpacks to the top as you will be carrying a cylinder of oxygen and large bag packs along with you. One must acclimatize with weather conditions and be prepared for rock falls, and avalanches. Learning rescue techniques would be an added advantage.

Our Airbus, Heli Everest will all the time be supporting our team by supplying fresh - fruits, vegetables, meats, and other food items almost every day, and it's also always ready for your safety at your needs.

    I did the Everest Expedition with Seven Summits and I couldn't be happier with my experience. I and my group were all impressed with the service, the food, and our Sherpas. Whatever we needed while trekking, at EBC or on the mountain, these guys were on top of it. When registering, we requested a western menu and the cooks did a great job of meeting our needs with delicious meals. We didn't want to waste time on the mountain and they adjusted our itinerary to meet our needs. Lastly, our Sherpas were experienced, safe, and detail-oriented as they guided us to the summit and back down. I would recommend Seven Summits to others.

    I had a wonderful experience with Seven Summits Trek. Everyone was professional and very focused on meeting the needs of our team. The logistics ran smoothly and things were otherwise well organized. I particularly appreciated the fact that Seven Summits was flexible, in that they were open to our suggestions about adjusting the schedule. The bottom line for me is it felt as if we were partners with Seven Summits Trek rather than just their clients.

    My wife and I had an amazing experience with Seven Summits for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The company was extremely hospitable with a welcome dinner on day 1, including an introduction to our guide. Speaking of our guide, Phurkitar, he was simply brilliant. During the trek, he was very patient as both of us went through physical and emotional tiredness, and he ensured we reached EBC without any major issues. In addition, he helped cater to my vegan and my wife's vegetarian diets throughout the trek. Cannot compliment Phurkitar enough for all his efforts.

    Would readily book with Seven Summits again.

    These guys are the real deal. Incredibly professional and helpful; I genuinely couldn’t imagine hiking to base camp any other way.

    Seven summits planned everything, lodging, flights, and meals. All I had to do was show up and hike. My bag got lost on the way into Lukla (the airlines' fault not Seven Summits) but these guys (Sherpa Chhepal) organized a personal porter to bring my pack up to us since we’d already started our trek.

    Not only did Chhepal square away a porter but he did even more digging and got my bag on a helicopter instead. I had it first thing in the morning; it was incredible. When I was heading back to Kathmandu once we were finished, I realized I had time to catch an earlier flight if I could get out of Lukla on time. Well our flight was delayed but Seven Summits squoze me on a helicopter, got me to KTM, and I started making my journey home an entire day early because of that.

    Besides being super knowledgeable, helpful, A+ customer service, and everything else, these guys were just cool to hang out with. Made a lot of friends and would recommend Seven Summits to anyone in my circle.

    I had an excellent experience with these guys. They had a stellar Ama Dablam basecamp, a solid group of Sherpas, and great food. I'll be using them again on future climbs.

    Simply the best in the business.

    We climbed Lobuche East, Manaslu, and Everest with SST. The quality of guidance, Sherpa support, training, and service was second to none.

    Due to Covid, we had to combine our Lobuche and Manaslu expeditions, normally this would be a huge logistical nightmare for any other company, SST have the team size, logistic support, and experience to make this happen…. All of this was also done during the lockdown. We were in a unique position being a national team, we could isolate ourselves before travel and upon arrival in Nepal, we had no fixed timeline to meet and had the use of a military aircraft for travel so SST presented this to the Nepalese Government who agreed to use us as the test case and allow us to climb in autumn 2020 and see if it would be possible to open the Khumbu for the spring 2021 season.

    Both Lobuche and Manaslu were a huge success, the basecamp and higher camp setup were fantastic, the staff was amazing throughout and it made us look forward to Everest.

    Everest was even better, the training, trek, and climbing were fully supported, we didn’t have to ask for anything, SST fixed the ropes to the summit and planned our climb perfectly, and we were the first team to the summit on the first day of the first weather window… couldn’t have planned it any better. We felt fully supported and safe throughout!

    We went for an all-inclusive package so booked all of our travel, insurance, kit and equipment, full basecamp and climbing service included, as well as a full 90-minute documentary made by their climbing camera team.

    Overall an amazing company that I would thoroughly recommend to everyone, their experience, skills, reputation, and connections within all levels of government mean they can provide what others can’t…. Don’t always believe the hype around other companies…. They’re almost always on an SST permit, using SST Sherpas and base camp staff and use SST to set up their base camps, etc… around 50% of climbers on Everest in 2021 were on SST permits.

    NO OTHER COMPANY CAN DO WHAT THEY DO!!!
