The highest peak on Earth, Mount Everest rises at 8848 meters high. This summit is called Sagarmatha in Nepali, meaning “the Head in the Great Blue Sky“.
Tenzing Norgay Sherpa conquered Mount Everest together with Sir Edmund Hillary, a New Zealander, in 1953. They went up through the South route.
I have climbed Mount Everest already seven times!
I would love guiding you to this majestic summit. It is an absolutely unique and special adventure. The following are only some of the many reasons to try it once in your life.
- Have the opportunity to reach the roof of the world;

- Be guided by a local IFMGA certified mountain guide, partially trained in Chamonix;

- Have access to the best logistics during the expedition;
