The Seven Summit Treks VIP Mt. Everest Expedition Service is a comprehensive package designed for those seeking to summit Mt. Everest in the utmost comfort and convenience.
Climbing Mt. Everest is indeed a lifetime experience and one of the most challenging and rewarding adventures that a person can undertake. Mt. Everest is the highest mountain in the world and is located in the Himalayas, on the border between Nepal and China. Mt. Everest, also known as The Sagarmatha in Nepali is the highest peak on the earth with an altitude of 8848.86m.
The VIP Mt. Everest Expedition Service offered by Seven Summit Treks is an exclusive package that caters to those who wish to conquer the world's highest mountain with a blend of adventure and luxury. This service is designed for those who want to experience the thrill of climbing Mt. Everest while enjoying the highest levels of comfort, and support. The service provides customized support, ensuring that every aspect of the expedition is tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of the client, keeping health and safety as a top priority.
The VIP Mount Everest Expedition begins with a helicopter transfer from Kathmandu to Lukla and then on to Namche Bazaar and Dingboche, with rest and acclimatization stop along the way. After reaching the Everest Base Camp, the team will spend several days acclimatizing and preparing for the ascent.
Training at Basecamp:
At the Everest Basecamp, the team will be in the capable hands of a UIAGM (International Union of Alpine Guide Associations) certified guide, who will host a comprehensive training session on the essential skills required for the climb. This training will include lessons on ice wall climbing, ladder crossing, and other techniques that will be required for the ascent. The training sessions will be an opportunity for the team to practice these skills in a controlled environment, under the guidance of experienced professionals.
The team will have the opportunity to learn about the proper use of equipment, such as crampons and ice axes, and will be taught the best techniques for ascending steep ice and snow-covered slopes. The ladder crossing training will help the team to become comfortable with the fixed ropes and ladders that will be used to cross difficult sections of the mountain.
The training sessions will be intense, but they are also designed to be fun and engaging, helping the team to bond and build confidence in their abilities. The UIAGM guide will also provide valuable advice and tips to help the team prepare for the climb, and will answer any questions they may have. Overall, the training sessions will be an important part of the team's preparation for the climb and will help to ensure their success and safety on the mountain.
Acclimatization at Lobuche:
After the completion of Training at EBC, the team will approach the summit of Lobuche Peak (6119m). The climb to the summit of Lobuche Peak (6119m) is an important acclimatization process that prepares the team for the final ascent of Mount Everest.
During the climb, the team will gain valuable experience in navigating high-altitude terrain and will be able to test their physical and mental abilities. The ascent of Lobuche Peak is also an opportunity for the team to get to know their Sherpa guides, who will play a critical role in ensuring their safety and success on the mountain, after its completion, the team returns to Everest basecamp. In addition to acclimatization, the team will spend several days at the Everest Basecamp preparing for the ascent. During their time at base camp, the team will have the opportunity to get to know their entire Sherpa team, including their lead guide, assistant guides, and support staff. This is an important bonding experience that helps to build trust and camaraderie among the team members, which will be crucial during the climb.
Preparation, Basecamp, and High-Altitude Activities:
In the Everest basecamp, the team will also perform the Pooja Ceremony, a traditional Hindu ritual that pays respect to the gods and requests their blessings for a safe and successful climb. The Pooja Ceremony is an important part of the expedition and is considered to be good luck for the team. It is a touching moment that helps to bring the team together and provides a sense of reverence for the mountain and the journey ahead.
From there, along with the required Sherpas and UIAGM guide, the team will move on to Camp I (6,065m) where they will cross the Khumbu glacier. The journey continues from the Khumbu Glacier to Camp II (6,750m) around 450m on a gradual slope, and to Camp III (7,100m) around 610m. Camp III is located at the head of Lhotse and from there the team will reach Camp IV (7,910m) after just crossing 8000 m elevations.
Final Summit Push:
The final ascent to the summit of Mount Everest (8,848m) will commence between 9 – 11 PM once the team reaches Camp IV. The ascent will take several hours and will involve navigating through challenging terrain, including the famous Hillary Step. Reaching the summit is a physically and mentally demanding task, but the breathtaking views from the top make it all worth it. Upon reaching the summit, the team will spend a short time taking in the views and capturing the moment before beginning the descent back to Camp IV. The descent will also take several hours and requires just as much focus and determination as the ascent. Once back at Camp IV, the team will rest and recover before starting the journey back down the mountain to lower elevations. This epic journey to the top of the world will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that the team will cherish forever. During the entire expedition, you will be guided by a UIAGM-certified guide, ensuring a safe and successful climb. The VIP Mt. Everest Expedition Service also includes airbus support from Heli Everest (B3e Model) providing added safety and convenience during the climb.
The package includes state-of-the-art equipment and gear, as well as full board service and supplies, ensuring that climbers have access to everything they need to make the most of their expedition. This premium offering provides climbers with the excitement of climbing Mt. Everest and the comfort and convenience of a VIP service. Whether you are an experienced climber or a first-timer for 8000er, this package offers an opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime.
" We await to serve you our service and share our experience with you "
Base camp (5,400m/17,717ft)
A scenic flight to Lukla and a further trek will lead you to the basecamp of Mt. Everest Basecamp (5,400m). The trek to basecamp with great views of the Everest Himalayan range of Mt. Pumori, Nuptse, and Khumbu Ice fall with a warm morning and delightful evening full of light where you will be awaited by our best Sherpa team. At EBC, there will be a large number of groups besides this, Seven Summit has the best setup of basecamp. You will be spending about 45 days at base camp. Each member will get a separate member tent and dining (sharing), kitchen, shower, communication, and toilet tents. Before we climb the mountain, we make a big puja ceromancy at basecamp for good luck and safe climbing. Seven summits will have frequent helicopter charters to EBC and every single charter brings lots of fresh vegetables, fresh meat, and beverages.
Camp I (6,065m/19,898ft)
Once you reached EBC, your personal climbing Sherpa or team leader will review the base and advance training at basecamp. You will cross the Khumbu Icefall. This Ice fall is 2,000ft of moving ice. For the best acclimatization, once the rope is fixed by the Sherpa team you will climb to camp I which lies at an altitude of 6,065m. In this section of climbing, you will encounter mixed terrain with few crevasses and ice on the section of the glacier. This will take you about 4-5 hours of climbing. We will have frequent rotations on camp I and back to base camp.
Camp II (6,750m/22,146ft)
Camp II lies at an altitude of 6,750m. The climbing from camp I to camp is an intermediate ice section with a few mixed climbing sections. In this section of the climb, some rock parts and glaciers, and in the middle of the glacier is a bit technical but there will be a fixed rope. At camp II, there will be SST's fixed dining camp with a kitchen facility so this will be the most night spent nights after base camp.
Camp III (7,300m/23,950ft)
Climbing from camp II to camp III is also climbing from Lhotse face to CIII. The Lhotse face is steep and the ice part is harder but the route is fixed with rope and the angles can range from 30 to 45 degrees. It’s a long climbing Sherpa and with fixed rope will be there for safe climbing. You will have twice an overnight stay at camp III before the summit attempt for best acclimatization.
South Col/Camp IV (7,900m / 15,919ft)
From South col, you will have a great view of Mt. Everest in the north and Mt. Lhotse in the south covered with loose rock. South col of Mt. Everest last camp. Climbing to camp Iv is a short distance but there are some rocky sections and need to be careful while climbing up to Camp IV because of the altitude the oxygen levels are low. There are two rock sections to navigate before camp 4: The Yellow Band, an inter-layer of marble, phyllite, semi schist rock, and the Geneva Spur, an anvil-shaped rib of black stone. Both of these areas are set up with fixed ropes.
Summit (8,848.86m / 29,032ft)
The most important day is summit day. It is the main goal for all climbers. It's a day that climbers dream about. So, most of the climbers begin their summit push at late night and will walk to the summit for about 7 to 8 hours and will reach the summit about 6/7 am (morning). There is a Balcony, the very famous Hilary Step, and the south summit of Mt. Everest before reaching the central panel. The Summit of Mt. Everest is stunning. You will be on top of the world. You will be mesmerized by the beautiful view of different 8000m peaks. On the same day after taking some pictures, you will walk down to camp III or camp II, which will take about 5 to 6 hours. descending from the summit is also a difficult part of this expedition so safety descent is also an important part of summit day. Seven Summit Treks will have one climbing Sherpa with one member from camp IV to summit day and till back to basecamp. The SST guide will carry an oxygen cylinder for members and himself. For the safe summit of Mt. Everest SST will always have a guideline of the best weather forecast, communication, and back support from the basecamp leader. Rope fixing up to the summit is the major duty of our climbing Sherpa so we highly admire our Sherpa to fix ropes, and make all the effort to get the group to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.

We spent 2020 and 2021 climbing with Seven Summits Treks, and to sum up that lengthy period, they were simply outstanding!! You know from the outset that it is a family-run business because immediately upon arrival you feel like a member of the extended family. Nothing is too much trouble, and they take great care to make sure that you are in the best possible position to achieve your aim. I have been very fortunate to have climbed three Nepalese peaks with Seven Summits, and I very much hope to climb many more with them and their team.
A brilliant company that I would highly, highly recommend to anyone thinking of climbing or trekking in Nepal!!
After many months of researching the best Company in Nepal to facilitate the Bahrain Everest summit attempt, it became very obvious that there was only one company to make this happen. SST from start to Finish excelled in every aspect of the expedition planning and delivery. Their knowledge was passed in from the very start especially when it came to safety, insurance, and rescue provisions for the team. The equipment that was provided for Mt Lobuche, Mt Manaslu, and then Mt Everest was second to none. Where equipment rarely failed it was replaced.
The contact throughout by their admin team was constant and provided us with the support we needed. - Chris (Bahrain Everest Team Leader)
