We got the best supporting Sherpa with strong background in climbing on Everest itself.
All of our staff members, including Sherpas, cooks, and kitchen staff have extensive expedition experience and a thorough understanding of local conditions; therefore they are well adapted to keeping things under control in difficult situations. All our climbing Sherpas are from mountaineering backgrounds, and our submitters are all from the Khumbu region. The cooks and kitchen staff are a mix of Sherpas and local Tibetans who do this work every climbing season.
Great team spirit is required for any successful expedition. Our Sherpas, cooks and helpers will set up and manage all that is required at Base Camp and Advanced Base Camp for your convenience. Your personal Sherpa will take care of your needs at higher elevations. They will help you to change your oxygen, fix your regulator problems, communicate with Base Camp, make sure that you are hydrated, and help to guide you all the way to the summit and back to Base Camp safely. Good teamwork is essential for a successful summit and to make it a safe and enjoyable experience.
The safety and fitness of all team members, proper kitchen facilities and hygiene, fresh food, vegetables and clean drinking water are our highest priorities.
