Elevate your chance of success climbing the world's highest peak, Mount Everest on a Private Expedition with Adventure Consultants.

As pioneers of guided ascents on Everest, Adventure Consultants is recognised as the premier guiding service with a superb reputation for enabling members of our expeditions to achieve summit aspirations. If you are serious about achieving the top and are looking for a private and highly personalised service then look no further!

Experience the ultimate personalised expedition package with the Adventure Consultants Everest Private Expedition. Catering to a wide range of individuals, small groups, charity climbs or film crews; our private Everest packages are designed to provide climbers with the best chance of success.

Climbing as a private team provides numerous benefits including the services of your own highly experienced and qualified Western mountain guide and your own team of Sherpas supporting your climb. Importantly this allows you more freedom of movement on the mountain to travel at a faster or slower pace as your fitness and acclimatisation dictates. It leaves you free from constraints that are implicit in being part of a larger team—such as group pace, health of other members or following a fixed timetable. By being part of a private expedition the schedule is dictated by you and your guide around your health, your acclimatisation and your schedule.

Private teams enjoy all the same great benefits that our standard climbers enjoy, including the legendary AC Base Camp facilities, and more! A variety of optional add-ons are available so that you can create an environment that suits your needs, whether that's choosing to climb and socialise alongside our main climbing team, or creating a private haven with exclusive dining/lounge facilities and even your own personal Base Camp Manager and Chef!

The possibilities are endless and if you are serious about being successful on an ascent of the world’s highest mountain—and you want a personalised experience that gives you the best chance of attaining that goal in a private expedition—then Adventure Consultants is the perfect choice.

The need for exceptional physical fitness cannot be over-emphasised. A regular, strenuous programme must be followed for many months to achieve the level of fitness required. We recommend a training programme tailored to mountaineering such as those from Uphill Athlete.

Technical Experience

You must be able to efficiently climb ice, snow and rock terrain, multiple days in a row. Climbers will ideally have a broad set of climbing skills from basic rock climbing to advanced cramponing on snow and ice and strong rope skills such as rappelling and rope ascending. You should be comfortable with camp craft and self-care at high altitude.

Altitude Experience

Prior ascents of multiple 6000-7000m peaks are required (such as Denali, Aconcagua, Peak Lenin, 6000m peaks in Nepal, or the Ecuador Volcanoes) and a prior ascent of an 8000m peak, such as Cho Oyu, is strongly recommended. This will allow you to fine-tune your skills and equipment and discover how you personally cope with extreme altitude.

Why Adventure Consultants?

When you climb Everest with Adventure Consultants you'll join a small team of companionable people who are focused on reaching the summit in good style with the highest level of support and safety standards possible. You'll enjoy the best standards of food and equipment that are attainable - not just at Base Camp, but where it counts the most; on the mountain.

Our methodology and tactical approach to climbing Mount Everest has seen us achieve the highest success rates and our extensive experience gives us the edge when it comes to the big decisions. We provide a consistently higher Sherpa and Guide ratio than any other operator, resulting in more support and backup for your summit attempt and therefore a greater safety margin and chance of success.

In the interests of giving you the most optimal chance to summit, we limit our team size to ensure the team summits on the best weather day; sometimes there is only one summit day! Large teams offering cheap climbs often miss out as they split their groups over several potential summit days.

Our guides are seasoned professionals certified by the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations (IFMGA) to ensure your safety throughout the expedition. Our experienced Sherpa team is enthusiastic, motivated, and regarded as the strongest and most cohesive group of Sherpas on Mount Everest. They have dozens of Everest summits between them.

Highest Level of Resourcing

You'll benefit from a higher flow of oxygen than other expeditions (sleeping on 1l/min and climbing on 4l/min), maximizing safety and success. Your overnight gear will be carried between camps, meaning you only carry what you need for the day.

We provide a dedicated Base Camp doctor - proven to make a crucial contribution to our success rate and the well-being of the team members. Our Base Camp Manager ensures the smooth running of the expedition.

Our Expedition Chef and cooks are regarded as the best in the business, providing wholesome and appetising meals with a range of menus to suit all your food requirements. Meals on the mountain are also of the highest standard and designed to sustain you for the rigours of the ascent. For those with specific needs, we can cater to special dietary requirements.

For three decades we have been at the forefront of providing the most current communications systems for our expeditions. These deliver comprehensive weather forecasts from our Swiss meteorologists which enable us to plan our ascent around favourable weather. Additional meteorological interpretation provided by veteran Everest guides through our head office in New Zealand helps manage the decision-making process. Our Wi-Fi data connection allows you to keep in touch throughout the expedition from the comfort of your tent or our Base Camp lounge.

The comfortable Base Camp environment and the quality of food is legendary. On the mountain, our camps are comfortable but not excessive - eliminating unnecessary additional loads to be carried through the icefall.

"The guides were exceptional in selecting the best strategic plan that put us all in the best position we could have been in to reach the summit. While others moved into weather unnecessarily, Mike was amazing at patiently placing us on the best days to advance and climb."

"I met Adventure Consultants Guide Rob Smith on Everest in 2019 and I had an amazing time. He always goes above and beyond the call of duty to help out anyone who is on the trip. His humor creates pure joy at basecamp and his experience and strength always makes you feel as safe as you can be. I would love to climb with him again anywhere in the world."
