Submit Review

The crown jewel of any climbing career, Everest is a transformative peak that is guaranteed not just to challenge you, but to change you.


  • Discover what you are truly capable of
  • Stand on the highest point of our planet
  • Be humbled climbing amongst the giants of the Himalaya
  • Enjoy lifelong friendships with your Sherpa and fellow climbers alike
  • Climb through the famous and rugged Khumbu Icefall
  • See the sunrise over the Himalayas from the highest point on earth!
  • The Sherpa Supported Climb is designed for the highly experienced mountaineer. These are climbers who are qualified to, and prefer, climbing autonomously but are looking for logistical support and expedition oversight.

    This option will see you climbing fully independently until the summit rotation when you will be partnered with a personal Sherpa above Camp 2.

    Throughout the expedition, you will have full access to CTSS logistics, the support of our Everest Expedition Leader in advising you, support from our Sherpa team throughout the expedition to assist you with your load carries.


    This is a sample itinerary only. Your actual daily schedule will be strategically planned to account for the best weather and summit windows etc. We begin our expedition in Kathmandu, Nepal, where we obtain our climbing permits before flying to Lukla in the Khumbu Valley to trek to Everest base camp. Our climb ends in Kathmandu. We suggest you book a flexible return airfare.
