Here's what Roger from Zurich had to say about SummitClimb:
After comparing and evaluating a bunch of expedition companies, SummitClimb seems to offer best what an experienced climber may expect: great infrastructure, professional organization and adequate services for people that wont need a hand-holding guide on the mountain. Thanks a lot for your great answers to my questions.

Yes you can, and prescription glacier specs with leather side shields cost $28, £15, or €18. However, you will have to examine the possibility and assess the choice of frames and quality of workmanship personally when you arrive in Nepal. If you decide to go ahead, it can sometimes take up to a few weeks for your order to be ready. It's important that you will have your own correct prescription glasses before leaving home for the expedition, as your purchase will most likely not be ready for you until your return to Kathmandu after the trip is over.
