We encourage you to research your many options when it comes to picking a guide service for your dream Everest Base Camp trek. As a popular trek, we know that there is a huge variety of operators to chose from who offer different trek styles and therefore prices. A few ways in which we differ and add value to our trips are:
- You will be welcomed into an actual Everest climbing team and trek alongside mountaineers who are attempting to scale the world's tallest peak.
- An Everest summiteer will be your trekking guide, sharing their own stories from the top of the world along with the history of the mountain and be available to answer all your climbing questions.
- You will be invited to stay in a tent on the Khumbu glacier inside Base Camp proper rather than down valley in a teahouse far away from the action. (Most trekking companies that aren't affiliated with an actual Everest climbing team are not allowed to stay in camp and simply tag 'trekkers rock' which is located on the outskirts of camp before returning down valley. Very few even enter base camp itself which is a shame as you miss out on the scene and community of Everest expedition life.
- You have the opportunity to take part in a 'Climbing Clinic' and learn ice-climbing and rappelling in the safe base of Khumbu icefall where we will help you take some great hero photos to remember your experience (Technically you'll be able to say you've climbed on Everest!)
