Seven Summit Treks P. Ltd is a Nepal-based company. I am extremely happy to be associated with one of the most professional, committed, and efficient Companies. I had a great experience with them while climbing Everest from the Northside in 2016. In 2017, I climbed Manaslu Peak with Seven Summits. Mingma and Dawa Sherpa strived to provide all necessary information, arranged all the logistics efficiently, and provided the best tents, food, and other facilities. Their Sherpas are excellent and even other ground staff have been extremely helpful and cordial.  I plan to climb many more peaks with seven summits as they are extremely competent and the best in the business. I extend my deep appreciation, gratitude, and thanks to the wonderful, hard-working Seven Summit team.

Seven Summit Treks is a company run by the Sherpa brothers. On my expedition to MANASLU, the company provided me with all the services offered. Excellent food, good tents where I felt like in a five-star hotel, only here I had a thousand stars. The manager of the company Dawa Sherpa gave me many pieces of information on how to do better to succeed at the summit, I followed his advice and I was able to achieve the summit. The company has professional sherpas that carry out their activities with great enthusiasm and a lot of responsibility. They are delivered at one hundred percent to the care and guidance of their customers. I can only say that I am very happy to have hired this company for my expedition. Thank you very much to the Seven Summit Treks team.

It was so great and unbeatable experience of my Life while climbing Manaslu in Autumn 2017. Well-managed base camp, foods, and all services at the base camp and high camp were so satisfying. I felt safe even in the bad weather, people of Seven Summit Treks are Expert in Mountaineering.

I have climbed Manaslu (8,163m) in September 2017, utilizing the service of Seven Summit Treks Ltd. (SST) I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality service that I received during the expedition. First, I was very satisfied with the smooth schedule management of the SST. From the day I left Kathmandu (Sep.9) to the day I returned to Kathmandu (Sep.29), there was no single day of waiting or waste. Everything was moving on so fluently; Heli flight, rest, moving up to BC, puja, acclimatization trip, rest, summit push, return to Kathmandu. Amazingly, it took only 16 days from the day of arrival at BC(Sep.11) to the day of the summit (Sep 27). Mingma Sherpa, Dawa Sherpa, and other management staff diligently worked for this smooth transition of each phase. Secondly, I appreciate the excellent Basecamp food. Everything was so fresh! I think this is possible only with SST because it has so many clients that operate 5 or 6 kitchens at the same time and they are equipped with everyday new fresh supplies such as fruits and vegetables. The economy of scale produces a quality of scale here! In my opinion, the SST is greatly undervalued in the market now. There is a bias against Nepali and Nepali companies. Some western critics often say “cheap operator”, implying ‘low quality. However, clever clients know and choose ‘good priced high-quality service such as SST.

Seven Summit Treks and Arnold Coster, thank you for arranging an incredible and memorable expedition to Manaslu. From the trek into the comforts of base camp to the time spent climbing and safely returning to Kathmandu, your professional and exceptional service on and off the mountain exceeded my expectation. Moreover, your experienced and committed team of sherpas and office staff went beyond to ensure our safety and comfort. Thank you. I can't wait to climb with you again, hopefully soon!

Our first co-operation was in 2013 in Pakistan with Arnold Coster expeditions and Sevensummittreks towards the Gasherbrum. After that, we continued to work together on expeditions towards Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Manaslu (winter), and AmaDablam. For me, SST is a very professional company with a lot of experience and knowledge. We have full confidence in their capabilities and appreciate their flexibility. I would like to thank them for all those years of cooperation and I look forwards to new adventures in Nepal and Pakistan.

I have been on many expeditions in Nepal over the years, most of them I organized with friends and used Seven Summit Treks only for their base camp services with great service! This year none of my friends were available to climb in Nepal in the Autumn season so I contacted SST and decided to sign up for the Mera Peak and Baruntse expedition. SST organized everything and provide me with a personal climbing Sherpa for the entire trip. Throughout the entire trip, everything was taken care of by SST, including lodging, tea houses, and meals. At Baruntse base camp I had a nice private tent and the cook and kitchen staff always had smiles and cooked great meals. My Sherpa (Jangbu) was great and we became close friends and climbing partners. Jangbu was always there with a smile, a very strong climber, always wanting to help in any way he could. There was plenty of time to decide how and when we were going to make a summit push based on the weather. We had fantastic summit days on both peaks and finished the trip crossing the Amphu Labste pass into the Khumbu Valley staying each night in nice lodges with all meals included. I would highly recommend using SST for any expedition that you want to go on. Thank you Seven Summit Treks for a great trip and your attention to detail!!

My wife and I had an amazing experience with Seven Summits for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The company was extremely hospitable with a welcome dinner on day 1, including an introduction to our guide. Speaking of our guide, Phurkitar, he was simply brilliant. During the trek, he was very patient as both of us went through physical and emotional tiredness, and he ensured we reached EBC without any major issues. In addition, he helped cater to my vegan and my wife's vegetarian diets throughout the trek. Cannot compliment Phurkitar enough for all his efforts.

Would readily book with Seven Summits again.

These guys are the real deal. Incredibly professional and helpful; I genuinely couldn’t imagine hiking to base camp any other way.

Seven summits planned everything, lodging, flights, and meals. All I had to do was show up and hike. My bag got lost on the way into Lukla (the airlines' fault not Seven Summits) but these guys (Sherpa Chhepal) organized a personal porter to bring my pack up to us since we’d already started our trek.

Not only did Chhepal square away a porter but he did even more digging and got my bag on a helicopter instead. I had it first thing in the morning; it was incredible. When I was heading back to Kathmandu once we were finished, I realized I had time to catch an earlier flight if I could get out of Lukla on time. Well our flight was delayed but Seven Summits squoze me on a helicopter, got me to KTM, and I started making my journey home an entire day early because of that.

Besides being super knowledgeable, helpful, A+ customer service, and everything else, these guys were just cool to hang out with. Made a lot of friends and would recommend Seven Summits to anyone in my circle.
