Post by: 7summits on Oct 29 2004, 19:37
7summits .com Press release, can be redistributed freely
29th October 2004   

In the coming Everest 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. 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 http://7summits.com/everest/trips.php for a complete overview of what is included, itinerary etc.

There is also an option to climb to North Col only, for only 4000 (21 days)

No I am not, for this price I can not join (unless we get dozens of clients), as we are barely breaking even.
There wil be one western guide, Alex Abramov from Russia.

I am available in case some climber or group of climbers wants a private guide, but of course that will be more expensive.

This trip is to get our name known and out there as we always offer the best value for money.
