Good Advice

Climbing is a potentially dangerous pastime, high-altitude climbing is dangerous at all times. There can be no possible guarantee of your success and safety at the altitudes above BC and especially above 7000 and 8000m. So we strongly recommend you to hire a personal high altitude Sherpa guide-porter, especially if you do not have any experience in high-altitude climbing. This will increase immensely your safety and chances of summiting.
