Taking part in expeditions is a chance that probably only comes once in a lifetime. Experienced climbers doing expeditions must be very serious about high altitude mountain climbing. Broadly speaking, this involves establishing a series of camps up the mountain, and the movements up and down between camps to stock them with provisions are a process that helps to acclimatize the body. Some routes require technical climbing proficiency in sections, and you must have gained such skills prior to the trip. It is not a suitable undertaking for a novice to the Himalayas! We emphasize that you should be well aware of the risks and challenges, both physical and mental, as such adventures at high altitude present.
We are committed to provide you with the best quality of service and experience to help you reach you goals to summit. However, all climbing members will have had considerable climbing experience at higher altitudes, preferably in the Himalaya. Each climber will be aware of the inherent risks – bad weather, injury and death – associated with climbing Everest and understand that the possibility of actually summiting is very slim. There will be a manager at base camp to assist the team and act as a liaison between climbers and the Sherpas. All members will be assisted by our high quality Sherpa. Our Nepalese mountain guides and climbing Sherpas are some of the most experienced in the world and will assist you as much as possible on your summit attempt. Higher Limits ensures the protection of climbers who follow practical advice when seeking challenging adventures in risky terrain.
