Why climb with Berg Adventures

Why Trek to Everest Base Camp with Berg Adventures

  • Over 25 years of experience in Nepal. Wally Berg has been working in Nepal since the mid-1980s. Many of our Nepalese guides and staff are like family to Wally and to Berg Adventures. Nepal is truly our second home. While on expedition with Berg Adventures, you will meet old friends of ours at every turn - Sherpa climbers and guides, owners of tea houses and stores, and even local artists and Buddhist lamas. Berg Adventures has been operating Himalayan expeditions and expeditions around the world since it was founded in 2001.
  • High-altitude experience and emergency equipment. We are a mountaineering company first and we treat every expedition the same whether it be a trek to Base Camp or a climb of Everest. We carry emergency oxygen, Gammov bags, expedition first aid kits and pulse-oximeters on all climbs at no extra charge. Most importantly, our staff of seasoned guides knows how to use this vital equipment.
  • No minimum numbers. We will never cancel your trip due to a lack of enough participants. If you put down your deposit, we will make your trip happen.
  • Excellent food and private cooking staff. Each Berg Adventures trekking team includes a skilled cook and kitchen staff to ensure the quality and variety of our meals and we bring our own flatware to ensure cleanliness. At each meal we provide a wide variety of fresh foods to keep appetites strong. We have fresh produce and meat resupplied throughout every trip. See our FAQ section for a sample menu. We are happy to cater to your dietary needs.
  • Finest accommodations. We stay in the cleanest and friendliest lodges available while in the Khumbu region of Nepal. You will come to love the traditional layout of these lodges. The cozy dining rooms are the perfect place to share a warm beverage with other climbers and trekkers while enjoying the incredible panoramic views through the large windows. You may never want to leave! In Kathmandu, we stay at the historic Yak and Yeti Hotel which is a famed icon in the mountaineering world.
  • No middleman. At Berg Adventures we organize and operate our own trips to ensure the highest quality of guides, services and equipment.
  • Trip training and gear outfitting. We provide training tips and services to help you get in shape. We will also assist you with finding the right gear. You can rent high quality gear directly from Berg Adventures and if we are unable to rent you what you need, our guides will help you locate the highest quality gear for rent in Kathmandu or Namche Bazaar. Gear purchasing services are also available.
  • No shortcuts or hidden costs. Park fees, safety equipment, food and beverages are always included in the cost of your Everest Base Camp trek. We also include the cost of the fixed-wing flights in and out of Lukla airstrip. Rarely will you use your wallet while trekking except when purchasing beautiful souvenirs and traditional goods from local merchants and markets or when indulging in a cinnamon bun or cappuccino from the bakery in Namche.
  • Great team spirit
  • Team spirit. We firmly believe that team morale plays a large role in getting you to Base Camp. The positive energy of the BAI team of staff is sincere and contagious. The Sherpa people of Nepal are known for being incredibly hospitable and kind. Complete support is with you on your trek.
  • Our staff is our family. We treat our porters and guides like family. Many of these people have been with us since the beginning of Berg Adventures and we keep in touch with them regularly throughout the year. Even the yaks that we use to transport our gear are considered to be members of our expedition team.
