In 2007 for the first time in the history of Polish himalaism all participants of our expedition reached the summit of Everest.
Our experience shows that the assistance of Sherpas and the sufficient amount of oxygen are absolutely essential to reach the summit so we included them in the price of the expedition.

Everest – the highest mountain on Earth – the crown of the Seven Summits. Although it was climbed almost 60 years ago it still remains a serious and threatening mountain with as much oxygen as in the stratosphere. The lack of oxygen poses the main obstacle in reaching the summit. There are also sudden weather changes and strong winds. It is easy to become frostbitten. There are also some technical difficulties. Although fixed lines hang everywhere, it is still challenging to climb up a vertical barrier at 8700m.
We will be climbing from the Tibetan side. The route where Malory died. We won’t encounter a problematic icefall as on the southern side but the biggest difficulties await us at the very end before the summit. The last part of the climb is secured with a ladder but it remains difficult nevertheless.
From all participants we require an excellent health and physical condition, mountaineering experience at the minimum of 7000m as well as a skill of using an ascender on vertical faults, using ice axe and possessing a general knowledge about mountaineering.
