Here is what Vik from Seattle had to say:
"The leader provided great team leadership and is a very good communicator, clear and patient. I liked the independence afforded on the expedition and we had a good team. The solar charger and battery setup in basecamp worked well and the double wall dining tent and heater were nice. The sherpas were very hard working and super friendly. There were no slackers on the staff."
Here is what the Mallorys from Canada, a family of 4 Everest summiters, had to say:
"SummitClimb is very patient and well organized. On expedition the showers were nice, the toilet facilities were good, tent arrangements were comfortable, the food servers were great, the food was tasty, and we even had heaters in basecamp and doctors on the trip.
The organization was well done and we had very little concerns, with all of our requirements were met. We had a great climb with a huge deal of success.
The SummitClimb Sherpas were very supportive, capable and helped us at important times when we needed their assistance. Preparation for the climb was made easy, with all of the important information available on the SummitClimb website. Questions were readily answered rapidly by the SummitClimb office staff. Most importantly, the leader was very professional, respectful, communicated information readily, and was a key component in the success we enjoyed on Everest"
Here is what Eric from Canada, the youngest Canadian male to summit Everest had to say:
"It’s a personal accomplishment I have been thinking about for a very long time. I am very happy with the outcome. When I saw the south summit I felt confident and on top of Everest I felt happiness, excitement, and relief at being on top of the world."
Here is what Everest summiter, Sophie from France had to say;
"I think Everest is very different than any other mountains I have climbed. You have to be strong, focused, and confident to enjoy it.
I love climbing for fun. My personal sherpa was really fun to climb with and did a great job of keeping me motivated. We took it step by step together and he was with me the whole way. We stopped a lot and took breaks, shot photos, had snacks, and enjoyed the experience of climbing Everest. My sherpa let me lead about 60% of the time, which was nice because I love to leading when I'm climbing."
Here is what Phil from the UK has to say:
"The expedition is ideal for individuals or groups of climbers who wish to participate in a Himalayan expedition at a reasonable price. The price is only slightly higher than the cost of organizing your own independent expedition. You have the wealth of experience provided by the organizers and land leaders, who use no middlemen, dealing directly with the government mountaineering office.
Allows a member to experience the Himalayas a little bit as the first pioneer climbers did when there was no such thing as commercial expeditions. Some climbers without the contacts and knowledge to organize their own trip will enjoy how all logistics are taken care of by professionals, from your arrival at the airport to your departure from the staging city."
Here is what Troy says:
"Thanks for everything! I appreciate everything you did to make this a safe and successful expedition."
Here is what Bruce says:
"I thought the expedition worked well and it was another good group of people you put together. I look forward to climbing together again and seeing you next time."
Here is what Dale has to say:
"I just want to say "thanks" for organizing this expedition. I was able to achieve my childhood dream/goal of reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, and SummitClimb was a big factor in that dream becoming a reality."
Here is what Arnold has to say about climbing Everest from Tibet:
"It’s a full service expedition with everything taken care of. Or you can go in simple style with the basic climb. It's less expensive than the South side expedition.
It involves some very interesting history of Mallory and Irvine and the 1920s expeditions.
SummitClimb's strong team of staff and sherpas has helped fix the route to the summit many years now and they know the mountain well.
It's less crowded than the South side and there is a nice slow pace of approach and climb.
The leaders are very team focused, dedicated and hard working, with attention to the member's needs and details letting each participant go at his/her own pace with their own desired support.
The basecamp food is excellent with plenty of hot drinks.
The Tibetan side of Everest might be shorter to climb, you start from a high ABC at 6400 metres. The summit day is shorter, starting from 8300 metre high camp, 300 metres higher than high camp on the Nepal side."
Here is what Amer had to say:
"Please know that i am truly delighted and 100% satisfied with my SummitClimb experience! Everything went smoothly so far as the organization goes, and i am grateful to have been a part of the team."
