Hi, what have you been doing? Please tell us about yourself. A Friend Asks Me: " Hey, What is Different Between Everest, K2, or Other 8000 Metre Peaks? "

This is Dan Mazur writing to you from the snowy wind blown rugged shores of the Pacific ocean with icy peaks towering above. My job is training with old and new friends of all ages and abilities to climb 8000ers like Everest and leading teams on K2, Lhotse, Gasherbrum 1 and 2, Broad Peak and Manaslu. Also I enjoy 7000 metre peaks, 6000m "trekking peaks". walking to Everest and K2 base camps, and volunteering with the Sherpa training school.

Friends Are Asking Us:

What is the difference between Everest and K2?


Mount Everest at 8,848 meters / 29,035 feet is the tallest and perhaps most coveted mountain in the world. The south (Nepalese) side is the route first climbed by Tenzing and Hillary in 1953, and the dates we have chosen feature the best weather of the year. The Nepal side of Everest is warmer and less windy than the Tibet side. Leader Dan Mazur is a well organized friendly leader, an excellent teacher, has led 12 Everest expeditions and our Nepalese Sherpas are very friendly, helpful and experienced, with more than 10 summits each.


K2 Climb

K2 is the ultimate climber’s high! At 8,611 m (28,251 ft.), K2 is the world’s second highest mountain and perhaps the most respected summit among climbers. It is located on the border of Pakistan and China and has been summited ten times less than Mount Everest. K2 is steep on all sides, and it creates its own weather = STORMY! Our K2 leader Dan Mazur put the first living Briton and first Americans on the summit. Our super strong Nepalese Sherpas have climbed to the summit of K2!


Climb Everest from uncrowded Tibet

Join the select few who are allowed to climb the pristine North Ridge, with top leader David Obrien (5 Everest Ascents from Tibet). Trip includes personal Sherpas, oxygen, everything. Team Summited in 2019. The Tibet (North) side of Everest is colder, more windy, and does not have the Khumbu Icefall.
