   What is the skill level of this climb?
To climb high elevation peak the health and fitness is a paramount criteria. The level of fitness required is proportional to peak elevation and route difficulty and length. For Everest we strongly recommend previous high altitude climb.
   Any tips on how a climber can maximize their chances of success?
Along with the required climbing skills, review cardio training. We strongly recommend following the advice of our guides to acclimatize properly.
   What is the best time to climb?
Spring, April - May.
   Will I be sharing a tent or a room?
During the trek we will be lodging in teahouses. Climbers will be either sharing a teahouse room or may have a private room each climber will have their own tent in Base Camp. Above BC in camps I-IV, climbers will be sharing tents.
   How much will my pack weigh?
While trekking our team members will only be carrying their personal belongings . At no point do we carry camping gear or equipment for overnight during the trek. Daypacks will weigh no more than 20 lbs. However, when higher than BC you be carrying packs that weigh 20 - 30 lbs.
   What gear will I need?
Please review tour equipment list section
   Any further advice on gear and using your gear list?
While all items are required there may be times when some of the items on the gear list may not be used (such as warm weather or changing conditions). The gear lists are created by the guides to assist in having climbers be prepared to summit in any conditions. We look to work with each climber individually.
   How is drinking water treated?
On our expeditions bottled water is available. There are also purified filtered water stations in many lodges. The boiled water will be also available in the lodges and from the camp kitchen.
   What will the meals on the expedition be like?
While trekking we will stay in lodges and guest houses and the meals will be cooked for you with continental menu meals often available as well as soups, pastas and noodles and rice dishes. While in Base Camp, Meals in the mountains consist of a diet rich in carbohydrates, as our bodies do not process fat and protein efficiently at higher elevations and to compensate the increase in caloric need that high altitude climbing involves. We try to make meals varied and as normal as possible.
   Is there any communication while we are on the mountain?
In Kathmandu telephones and internet access are readily available. Our guides will carry satellite phones in the mountains. The quality of the reception varies from location to location. Our Everest expedition generally has email access as well. In remote communication areas the only option would be a satellite phone.
   How much should I tip my guide and staff?
More information about tipping will be sent as we get closer to departure.
