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.
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 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!
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.
What is the difference between each of the 8000 metre peaks we offer?
45 days in June - July. G2: easiest of the world's fourteen highest 8000 metre peaks. There is no better preparation for Everest. Gasherbrum summiter Dan Mazur leading + super strong Nepal Sherpas: We visit Karakoram each summer. G1 is a little bit more difficult than G2. Climb both for an awesome combination in only 10 extra days.
World's 4th highest peak climbed from same route as Everest, but Lhotse is easier and much cheaper. Led by 3 time Lhotse summiter Dan Mazur and excellent Sherpas: Last year's team summited.
Not only do we have the best British, European. and American leaders and local Sherpas, we also use excellent hotels and equipment, our cooks prepare delicious food, and we offer very competitive prices.
