Guides

Part of Alpine Ascents’ success is based on our small and select group of experienced guides. We’re fortunate to have close friends and an expert staff in Nepal. (Note: While guides are subject to change, your guides will be Himalayan veterans. This is what separates this expedition from others, you will have the opportunity to climb with some of the foremost climbers from the United States and Nepal.

Sherpa Staff

In addition to our Western guides, the trek will be supported by a team of Sherpa. We have been working with the same team for over 15 years, and our deep-rooted friendship with each member makes for a wonderful exchange of ideas, laughter and assistance. Porters and yaks will move the majority of our gear and personal packs up the mountain, enabling trekkers time to fully appreciate the surrounding environment.
