All climbing staffs will have their own tents along with Kitchen and store tents. We engage expedition cook and base camp manager during the expedition to provide foods, drinks and logistics. After staying several nights in base camp, we install and supply the foods, drinks, tents in Advanced Everest base camp at the altitude of 6400 meter where the climbers spend most of the time to climb up in Camp 1, Camp 2, and to come down to advance base camp or base camp also they do climbing practice on Rongbuk Glacier for the better acclimatization. Finally they set up final Camp 3, and climb to reach in Everest summit.
After completing the formality of expedition and preparation in Kathmandu, drive to Everest base camp in Tibet. We do two acclimatization nights at Nyalam and Tingri before we reach in Tibet Side Everest base camp. We install a permanent tented base camp until the Everest expedition finish. We provide single tent and foam mattress, shower tent, toilet tent, huge dining hall with comfortable chairs and table, carpeted, heated by solar electricity. It makes a comfortable stay in base camp.
