Everest 2005: €10,000! All-in!
In the coming Everest 2005 spring season 7summits.com will again be the
agency of choice to book an expedition with if you are price conscious. You can
simply pay 30-40,000 to the well known companies or you can go for much less on
a fully serviced expedition with us. Of course you will not get 3 private
sherpas to carry your water bottle, so this expedition is meant for climbers who
can climb and have mental and physical strength.
The expedition will take place in May/June 2005, costs only €10,000
(currently about $12,750) and includes oxygen, shared High Altitude Sherpas,
tents, yaks, all food and one western guide, Alex Abramov, who has guided and
summited Everest before and brought many people to the summit. Additional
services can be added if needed, like a private HA sherpa, extra oxygen etc.
See the special Everest
expedition page for a complete overview of what is included, itinerary etc.
