Submit Review

Climbing Mount Everest in three weeks with your personal dedicated IFMGA / AMGA guide, with maximum support, the best possible safety and in supreme comfort.

We offer our Everest Signature Expedition from the North and the South side – so you can choose your preferred route.

Our new Signature Expedition has been carefully crafted, to the very last detail, to create an exclusive experience on the most prestigious mountain of all. Where other operators have to compromise on safety and comfort, we’ve aimed high and established new standards.

As the most successful Everest operator, with an unrivalled safety record and summit success rate, we promise you not only the best support, comfort and safety provision, but crucially, the best chance of summitting. That’s because our Everest Signature Expedition boasts all the qualities of our now proven Flash™ Expedition, enhanced with services that are exclusive to you. This means, for example, that you will enjoy the services of your own private mountain guide, expert professional support during the pre-expedition preparation phase and several exclusive facilities. Throughout, the focus is wholly and entirely on smoothing the way for your personal journey to the summit. This is an opportunity for you to tackle the ascent in the best physical and mental shape you can be, fully prepared, and with the best support around you. So that you can then stand on the world’s highest point and experience the incredible feeling of elation – and humility – that grips you in that moment.


NORTH SIDE: Day 1-5: Kathmandu and journey to Everest Basecamp
DAY 1: Individual arrival in Kathmandu/Nepal or Chengdu/China. DAY 2: Last preparations and free time. DAY 3: Flight to Lhasa, capital of Tibet – probably one of the most stunning mountain flights in the world. DAY 4: In the morning, there’s time for sightseeing: the Potala Palace, the former residence of the Dalai Lama and the Jokhan Monastery which demonstrate the rich culture of this beautiful country. Later we start our journey to Shigatse (3,800m) where we will spend the night at a decent but clean hotel. DAY 5:Transfer to Everest base camp (driver’s camp) at 5,200m. The journey leads over the Tibetan Plateau to Rongbuk Monastery where we have lunch and some time to explore. Then we move on to driver’s camp where we start preparations for the ascent.
Day 6-17: Acclimatisation and summit attempt
DAY 6-7: Ascent to advanced base camp (ABC) at 6,400m via middle camp at 5,800m. Get-together with the ABC team and set up our tents. DAY 8-17: We will do one rotation to North Col (7000m) and then head back to basecamp for recovery. Our Sherpa-team has already installed three high camps at 7,000m (North Col), 7,800m and 8,300m. Then we wait for a weather window for our first summit attempt. After the steep glacier climb to the North Col we stay at Camp 1, follow the less demanding North Ridge which leads us to the Northeast ridge, where we stay at Camp2 at about 7,800m, and then Camp3 at 8,300m. From here we cross below the Northeast Ridge to the Northwest Face and then back to the ridge with the secured 1st, 2nd and 3rd steps (all secured by rope) and finally we tackle the summit face. From ABC onwards, oxygen is available. At the camps we will also sleep with oxygen. There is plenty of time for a few days of rest and a second attempt at the summit.
Day 18 - 21: return journey and flight home
DAY 18: After our (hopefully) successful ascent, we now have to say goodbye to our Nepalese Team. We wander back to drivers’ camp and prepare for our departure. DAY 19-20: Transfer back to Lhasa and Kathmandu/Chengdu with probably overnight stay half way. DAY 21: Journey home.
SOUTH SIDE: Day 1-8: Kathmandu and journey to Everest Basecamp
DAY 1: Arrival and get-together at the hotel in Kathmandu. Meet your guide in your hotel. A great adventure awaits us, and our journey is soon to begin. You can feel the anticipation, excitement and joy. DAY 2: Helicopter flight to Syangboche above Namche and overnight stay in nearby Khumjung at app. 3750m. During the flight we are surrounded by the impressive rocky mountains of the Himalaya. DAY 3-8: Acclimatization at Island Peak and / or Lobuche or Mera Peak. Acclimatization peak to be selected according to the local circumstances. Trekking to and ascent of the chosen mountain.
Day 9-21: Mount Everest Base Camp and summit attempt
DAY 9: Trek to Everest Base Camp (5330m), from where we will prepare and plan the ascent of Mount Everest. DAY 10-21: Within these days we will reach the summit of Mount Everest. The advantage is that we have only have to climb through the Khumbu Icefall once during the ascent and descent, as we already have acclimatized to a six-thousand metre peak and therefore do not need any further acclimatization rotations. We wait for the right weather window for our first summit attempt. We skip Camp 1 , so we need 4 days for the ascent and two days for the descent. From Camp 2 (6400m) we have Oxygen at our disposal. In Camp 3 (7160m) and 4 (8000m) we can also sleep with oxygen. There is enough time for rest days and a second summit attempt. Return journey and flight home
