Everest by British group along with George Mallory in 1921, 1922 & 1925. 1925 was the one of the first tragic day in the history of Everest climbing. During Everest Expedition on June 2, 1924, Mallory and Irvine, had left their high camp for the summit attempt, they were missed in the Everest. Still their bodies was not found.

–          Back up oxygen Oxygen supplies, equipment’s

There may be question, why to put Oxygen back up? It is because there is now mercy in mountains. Nobody will help you if you don’t have yours own.  We provide oxygen for Everest and Lhotse. We send oxygen as backup of other 8000ers mountains. We only charge the oxygen amount whenever the clients use it otherwise we do not charge the amount only bringing it to the mountains. For mountains like Everest and Lhotse, we have enough oxygen backup in higher camps. Because their experience from other companies that client have to die due to the lack of sufficient supplement in south col. Now a day, the number of climber is increasing and it is sure that they have to wait in mountain to pass by the mountain traffic and even some disaster like avalanche can swipe away the oxygen bottle, tents food etc. So, it is necessary to have much backup oxygen which we are always serious to provide oxygen, climbing equipment’s, tents, food etc.

We are always serious about basic supplies i.e. necessary for expedition and any other trekking. We only use branded equipment which have already established in the field of adventures such as Mountain Hardware, Northface, Black Diamond, Petzl, CAMP etc. Because companies like Mountain Hardware and Northface have been spending their time to produce quality logistic of the mountaineering and trekking.

–          Private trip and less number of Climbers

Expedition is a big project. Organizing and handling a project successfully is a great challenge in remote and high region. Every climber has to spend their valuable time and big amount of money to grasp their ultimate goal safely. Volume of the group plays the vital role to make the every expedition success in good environment. Sometimes big volume create problem in mountains to organize the trip properly. To avoid such problem we use to organize every trip in small volume of 4-7 people. Which will ensure the equal chance for every climbers to achieve their goal safely.  Even we use to organize a private trip for single person; however cost will be slightly high.
