MT EVEREST EXPEDITION

CLIMB MT EVEREST, THE PENULTIMATE

HIGH ALTITUDE ADVENTURE

JOIN THE EVEREST ONE TEAM AND AND PREPARE TO STAND ON TOP OF THE WORLD

Mt Everest (8848m) is the ultimate high-altitude mountaineering adventure, and an incredible feat sought by avid, high-level adventurers around the world.

Scaling the highest mountain on earth is a phenomenal, often life-changing experience but one that should never be underestimated. It requires serious commitment, discipline, prior experience, a high level of physical fitness and a positive mindset.

Choosing the right expedition company who instills trust, confidence and delivers your adventure according to a style that works best for you, is paramount to your success and doing your research is vitally important in giving you the greatest chance of realising your dreams.

Everest One is committed to helping you stand on top of the world and we are the only Australian company delivering professionally led expeditions above 8000m.

We believe that each climber should be a good fit for the team, and possess the attributes that make you a valuable, productive and positive member, who enjoys spending considerable time with likeminded, determined individuals.

Climbing the highest mountains in the world is not an undertaking Everest One take lightly, having worked for more than 15 years in the Himalayas, whilst building a reputable, trusted company and having handpicked the best high-altitude climbing Sherpas in Nepal.

In fact, our Head Guide and Expedition Leader, Phunuru Sherpa has led 42 expeditions above 8000m, having scaled Everest an incredible 16 times, and is the current world record holder with 19 summits of Cho Oyu (8201m), along with numerous climbs of other 8000m peaks including Lhotse x 3, Manaslu x 3 and Shishapangma.  He has been a Lead Instructor for over 17 years and the Education Director at the Khumbu Climbing Centre.

Our High Altitude Sherpa guides, who all come from the famous Sherpa village of Phortse, have worked on more than 170 expeditions above 8000m, with a combined total of 60+ summits of Everest, 22 of Manaslu and numerous other 8000m peaks including Makalu, K2, Broad Peak, Lhotse and Cho Oyu.

Allan Cohrs, who is the owner of Everest One and an experienced Expedition Manager and Guide, has led more than 25 expeditions in the Himalayas, including summits of 8000m peaks.

Having personally stood on the summit of Mt Everest, Allan will be managing the expedition in close consultation with his Expedition leader, Phunuru Sherpa and his incredible team of Sherpas, who are the backbone of every expedition.

Our philosophy is simple.

Establishing a close relationship between our Sherpa guides and clients is imperative, and to reinforce this cohesion and trust, we believe in keeping our group size small with a maximum of 8 climbers.

You will be climbing 1:1 with an experienced, high-altitude Sherpa guide, with multiple summits of Everest, who is caring, compassionate and strong and also possesses high level technical and communication skills,  meaning you will be in the safest, most competent support and care on your way to the top of the world.

WHY CHOOSE EVEREST ONE?

THE ONLY AUSTRALIAN COMPANY OFFERING 8000M CLIMBING EXPEDITIONS

Everest One have been guiding climbs and treks in the Himalayas for over 15 years, with great success along with an outstanding safety record.

We do not just take anyone who applies.  We need to know that you are capable and have the required experience to safely undertake the adventure you sign up for.

Taking this approach means smaller groups, plus giving you the added confidence that your fellow climbers are capable and prepared.  This allows our team to be more dynamic and flexible on the mountain, and not forced to join long queues of climbers all pushing at the same time for that perfect weather window.

As the only Australian adventure company offering you the chance to climb above 8000m, you can feel at ease knowing that we are only a phone call away, and also giving you the opportunity to get to know your guides and fellow climbers long before you embark on your journey.

We streamline the process, sorting out all logistics allowing you to focus on the important things, from gear preparation and training, travel insurance, visas and travel advice and always available to steer you through these stages, long before you arrive in Nepal.

Our handpicked team of high altitude climbers are some of the most experienced and professional guides on the mountain.

The climbing team for Mt Everest alone have incredible experience with 176 expeditions above 8000m, including more than 60 summits of Mt Everest, giving you assurance that you are in very the best company.

Our client:guide ratio is 1 to 1, meaning you will be paired with your professional Sherpa at the start of the climb, and they will be by your side for the duration of the trip.

Knowing that you are in the hands of a respected, reputable Australian company gives you the best of both worlds.

 

On hand support and advice at any time and a team of climbers who will inspire you to reach great heights.

Small team

Mt Everest is a serious undertaking.

You will need to be disciplined, focussed and prepared to take on the climb to the highest point on earth.

 

You'll find a number of large expeditions on the mountain, with as many as 30 climbers and 40 Sherpas in a single team. For a multitude of reasons, that's not our style. 

By having a small team of climbers, we are able to move more efficiently and carefully on the mountain, have greater flexibility, the capacity to allow input from team members, along with clear decision making, planned performance resulting in a greater chance to summit as a team.

You'll get to know everyone, both fellow climbers and Sherpas closely throughout the course of the expedition. 

With Everest One, we'll have one Sherpa for each climber and they will guide you throughout your rotations.

 

We'll be on this journey together every step of the way and when it comes to summit push time, we will be ready to stand on top of the world.

Staying healthy

It's vitally important to protect your health on the Everest Expedition, and Everest One Owner and guide, Allan Cohrs, is an experienced climber and leader on high altitude climbs above 8000m.

We ensure that our Sherpa Expedition Leader and climbing team are the best in the business, which is vital to giving you the greatest chance of realising your dream.

Together, we monitor the team's performance, conduct daily oxygen saturation readings and ensure the team members are eating well, hydrated, obtaining quality sleep, sufficient rest and are at full strength during each phase of the climb.

Such knowledge is an invaluable resource, especially higher up on the mountain without easy access to base camp ER facilities.

Our Sherpas are expertly trained in all aspects of climbing, including monitoring your health and hygiene, to maximise your performance throughout the expedition.

 

Being a part of a smaller team also gives you significant benefits.

What you can expect

Approach (11 days)

After spending 2 days in Kathmandu we will fly to Lukla and commence our trek to Everest Base Camp to acclimatise our bodies for the climb ahead. The trek up to base camp follows a proven itinerary, allowing you to adjust to the altitude and gain some extra mountain fitness along the way. We stay in the same teahouses we have used for more than a decade, focussing on your health, hygiene and quality food and accommodation.

Base camp (2 days)

Our Everest Base Camp is comfortable and well-equipped and will be your home for over a month. Each climber will have their own  individual box tent with comfortable mattress and a carpeted floor,  giving you plenty of room to spread out. We will gather in our warm triple-skin heated and carpeted dining room for meals, and a separate, similarly outfitted communication and meeting tent with internet facilities.

Here you can chill with fellow climbers, watch movies, check email, and stay in touch with home. In addition, it has become a climbing tradition in the Himalayas for all groups to conduct a small Buddhist ceremony (Puja) to offer thanks to the mountain, and to ask for safe passage on the climb. 

Lobuche East climb (5 days)

In preparing for our climb, we will head back down to Lobuche where we set up our Base Camp and High Camp, and also incorporating some basic climbing skills training.  This climb is great for acclimatising above 6000m and also allows us to avoid an extra rotation through the Khumbu Icefall.

Climb (approx. 34 days)

After we settle in at base camp, we will proceed with checking and testing all of our climbing equipment before our first rotation through the higher camps. Our rotations will include spending nights progressively higher on the mountain as we climb and familiarize ourselves with the route. Meanwhile, our Sherpas will set up and stock higher camps (C1-C4) with essential supplies needed for the the climb.

As we get ready, we will alternately rest and climb, giving ourselves the preparation necessary for the best chance of success.

Once we are well-acclimatised and our camps are set, we will take some extra time to rest up at base camp, before going for the summit.

A number of contingency days are also built into our itinerary which may not be required but are an essential inclusion.

Pack up and trek to Lukla / Return to Kathmandu (7 days)

 

After the climb, we will descend to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu, where you will have a few days to relax and chill before returning home.

EVEREST ONE
A GLOBAL RESCUE SAFE TRAVEL PARTNER

Everest One is committed to excellence in every aspect of your trip experience, especially when it comes to safety.

 

That’s why we are a Global Rescue Safe Travel Partner. 

There is no denying that life comes with risk. 

 

You never know what is around the corner, and for that reason, you try to protect yourself by managing risk the best you can. 

 

Adventure travel is no different, and obviously it comes with an element of risk.

 

Whether you are trekking or mountaineering, things do not always go according to plan. 

 

As is the case for most of us in our personal lives, we insure ourselves, our homes, cars and other assets just in case anything goes wrong.

 

Our trips are no different.

 

We understand you have invested a lot of time, effort and money in your adventure.

 

For that very reason, we require each of our clients to obtain suitable travel insurance and evacuation cover (if required) in order to join one of our trips.

 

We occasionally have guests who need to cancel their trip either before it starts or during the trek or climb for various reasons whether it be injury, illness, personal circumstances, work related commitments or family related issues.

 

Whatever the reason, it is important that each client is covered for any situation that may arise.

The most important thing you can do for yourself is head out on your chosen adventure with peace of mind and focus on the reason you are there.

Views of Mt Everest

"I have travelled through Nepal, South America, Morocco and Tanzania with Everest One.​  Allan has an amazing team of professional guides and support staff who treat you like family. 

 

With Everest One, I have reached the summit of Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua and I have climbed Mt Everest with Allan, who is a true professional.  He was also my head guide on a successful expedition of Lhotse (8516m), the 4th highest mountain in the world. 

I will again be joining Everest One for a climb of Manaslu (8216m), the 8th highest mountain located in Nepal.

 

I would not trust anyone else."
