EVEREST SPRING 2018!
PLEASE DONATE VIA THE DZI FOUNDATION
HELP US KEEP GIVING BACK TO OUR BELOVED NEPAL
At 29,035 feet (8,850 meters), Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world. Inevitably, Mount Everest was the object of fascination long before Westerners began to climb the mountain. The Tibetans call it “Chomolungma,” which translates to “mother goddess of the world,” and the Nepali word is “Sagarmatha,” meaning “churning stick in the sea of existence.” It was officially named after Sir George Everest (the British surveyor-general of India in 1859), and in 1953 Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay made history when they became the first known climbers to reach the summit.
In the spring of 2018, Benegas Brothers Expeditions will run their fourteenth expedition to Mount Everest. We’ll be offering a variety of trips, and the most ambitious will culminate in a summit attempt via the South Col.
In our expeditions, we bring together the best components of high altitude mountaineering. On a BBE expedition, you’ll benefit from our many years of experience, our world-class guides, and the most professional Sherpa team in the industry. We also work hard to utilize new technology and equipment advancements, including the latest weather forecasting facilities, safety equipment, and communications systems. We can confidently say that our expedition offers you the most respected staff, resources, food, and base camp support available. Our regular Dream Team returns for 2018 – Willie Benegas (12 summits), Damian Benegas (5 summits) and our Base Camp Manager Georgie Davenport (Paramedic, 4 seasons)
If you’d like to join us on the highest summit in the world, then you’ve come to the right place. We believe that the ascent should be made in the best supported style possible, a philosophy that has helped our expedition members achieve one of the highest rates of success on Mount Everest and secured our reputation as the best expedition on the mountain, year after year.
