All of our full-service expeditions include porters for the group. We hire high altitude porters in a support capacity, and have very experienced, friendly, strong, helpful, and loyal people on our staff. During our expedition they will be carrying group equipment such as tents, rope, food, and gas. They are also there to assist in any rescues, so the other team members do not have to give up their summit attempt to rescue a sick member. Included in the full service price is one personal porter per person.
