Our prices reflect our honesty, integrity, efficiency, and emphasis on providing a safe, high quality treks for a fair price, as our company was founded 17 years ago by climbers for climbers, and we still have some of the original founders with us and strive to maintain these priorities. In addition, we have very long experience and deep connections with the mountaineering authorities in Nepal and Tibet, and we are fortunate to receive favourable prices and better treatment. Even though our prices are less, our approach reflects the best possible value for money and emphasizes effective team building within our own trek, as well as good relations with everyone along the trek.
We are dedicated to a philosophy of encouraging trekking and mountaineering by keeping costs to a minimum and welcome team members who are willing to share in achieving our objectives. All of our European, British, or US staff and leaders began their Himalayan climbing careers as paying team members. Thus, we never charge more for a trip than we would be willing to pay ourselves. We have excellent relations with the government authorities who regulate the world of mountain climbing permits, liaison officers, yak drivers, etcetera.
Additionally, our staff of more than 23 Sherpas are very long term, loyal, hard-working, and honest employees. We take good care of our staff and their families, and they work for a fair wage in return for steady employment. We help our Sherpa's families in many ways, and have been building schools and hospitals in their villages, and helping to protect their local environments for several years. Our agents and local on-the-ground operators are long term employees and they provide services at a competitive cost, in return for fair compensation and our return business, year-after-year.This is neither a luxury nor a 5-star expedition. Our equipment and methods are basic, simple, and proven over more than 50 Himalayan expeditions and countless treks. We re-use our equipment and re-hire our staff over many treks and expeditions. Our food is well prepared, abundant, and nutritious, but we do not use expensive imported foods. We neither print nor post expensive brochures.
