As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
There will be no harm to the environment as this expedition is all about camping. Everything that we bring for the expedition we carry out, not to leave any traces behind. Expeditions from the North Face of Everest is also easier to maintain as we are able to drive to the Chinese Base Camp allowing us to bring all the necessary stuff for the camping, avoiding the use of the helicopter.

Expedition from the North Face is not as crowded and is less challenging technically than the South Face. You don't have to climb Khumbu Glacier which is the most dangerous part this also means that there won't be lines to wait for your turn to pass. Fewer crowds mean fewer staffs have to be brought to the camps, less trash will be left and so it is much easier to maintain. Allowing the you to reach the top safely and with little impact.

The water there is precious and we'll be melting snow for all cookings and drinking purposes.

The only source of energy used on this trip is solar panels, this is also the most efficient way to get electricity.

All the camps are temporary, and we will bring tents for sleeping, cooking, resting. After the expedition is over - we bring it all back till next year.

After we reach Chinese Base Camp - it is only a walking expedition for the rest of the days which is sustainable enough to low the impact of being there.

Our team and all our suppliers are concerned about keeping the Mount Everest clean. It is a holy place for lots of believers as well. Each year we upgrade and are able think about how to make the expedition safe for our planet and participants.

The Impacts of this Trip

This expedition is fully run by locals as we are a local company that is focused on adventure activities in the Himalayas. All our team members are getting the best wages: instant payment after the expedition, insurance, all the equipment and gears, accommodation, meals, training.

There is a weight limit for every sherpa to carry on this expedition. There will be plenty of time to rest during stays at Base Camp. After we proceed on final camps before the summit, there is a final push as for the climbers, and for the sherpas where every minute you take for rest will depend on a situation, weather and circumstances.

It's a known fact that sherpas are not porters, they are a group of people who were born at high altitude and are able to deal with higher altitude incredibly well. This fact makes them feel strong and good in rough conditions, and they are able to do things and activities that we, low-altitude born people, cannot. For all mountaineering sherpa, it's a once in a year opportunity to support their families and send their children to study so that they can escape physical labour and get a bright future which is risk-free.

Our team is a professional team with years of experience who lives in this region and knows the climate changes, what is happening, aware of local customs and traditions. While staying in base camp you'll get the warmest welcome and will be able to dive into another culture if Tibet and Nepal.

Sherpa's who run Everest Expeditions, get better opportunities as they are invited to international expeditions, training, workshops in different countries. It's a way for them to be known, respected, travel, get better living conditions.
