We offer Privately Guided Expeditions where you have the services of a top Adventure Consultants western guide as well as your own Sherpa support team to work exclusively with you on the expedition to ensure your needs are best met. AC has been fortunate to work with many privately guided groups over the years with exceptional results.
Additional Sherpa support enables climbers to forego the carrying of heavy packs on `camp carry’ days which is often very debilitating at high altitude. For some climbers, the long climb with a pack up to the top camp can leave them too exhausted for summit day and hence this service greatly enhances your summit opportunity. The Personal Sherpa option is for a personal Sherpa to climb with you throughout the expedition, starting from Base Camp, all the way to the summit and back again. Please enquire should you be interested in rates.
Many climbers will climb Nuptse without the use of oxygen, but for those who would prefer to use oxygen, we do have an oxygen package available for the ascent.
Climbers wanting oxygen would adopt our standard expedition package that provides you with 2-3 litres of oxygen per minute for the summit day above Camp 3 and 0.5 litres per minute for sleeping at Camp 3 before leaving. This is sufficient for an ascent of Nuptse although we can arrange for a Max Ox option should you want that option (4 litres per minute climbing and 1 litre per minute sleeping).
Other services we have on offer are Private Guide, a personal tent as far as Camp 2 (on the mountain), Triple Crown (Nuptse-Lhotse-Everest combo) climb, and Communications requests (for an individual computer with a broadband connection or sat phone).
All of the additional services must be pre-arranged as each service requires a comprehensive preparation period. Please contact our office for further information and costs.
