Mount Everest is undoubtedly on the bucket list of every climber. Who wouldn't want to conquer the highest mountain on the planet? But the most dedicated and skilled mountaineers won’t want to stop there, of course, which is where Elite Exped’s combo packages come in. This expedition offers you the chance to bag two 8,000m summits - the first and fourth highest mountains in the world - in a single climbing season. For high achievers, goals don’t come much greater than this.
Summit the first and the fourth highest peak in a single climbing season
Royal Nepal Group’s leaders set a speed record for climbing Everest and Lhotse. The experience of climbing at speed on the world’s highest mountains is unparalleled. But our expertise isn’t just based on climbing fast - it’s been accumulated over long years of guiding on Everest and Lhotse in all conditions.
Our handpicked team of guides have chalked up dozens of successful summits of each peak between them. They also have years of experience fixing ropes on the route, as well as working as Icefall Doctors - arguably the most difficult job of all, establishing and maintaining routes through the ever-changing Khumbu Icefall.
At Royal Nepal Group, we oversee every step of our own logistical operations, rather than relying on third parties. We control everything that can be controlled to ensure that we meet the very highest safety standards, and maximize efficiency. This means we are able to offer ambitious packages like the Everest and Lhotse combo climbs that some other guiding companies cannot.
Our founders’ Nepalese heritage and ability to bridge the gap between Western and Himalayan climbing cultures allows us to run every aspect of our operation smoothly, without fear of misunderstandings. The success of our approach is evident in Nimsdai’s own achievements, including his 100 percent success rate on 8,000m climbs.
As well as being highly-skilled mountaineers, every one of our guides has extensive experience of conducting high-altitude rescue operations. We have evacuation plans and accessible helicopter rescue in place for emergencies. No-one can cater for every eventuality in the world’s most extreme environments, but we can guarantee that you will be in the safest possible hands should something unexpected happen.
We don’t see our clients as clients - we see them as friends and fellow high-achievers. People who, like us, have made chasing their dreams a priority. We know why you climb, because we feel the same way. That means we’ll make sure no stone is left unturned in our quest to help you achieve those dreams. We know how it feels to stand on top of the world, and how it feels to summit multiple 8,000m peaks. It’s our dream to be able to share that with you.
