How Much Does It Cost To Climb Everest?

Ever wondered how much it costs to climb Everest? Well, Alan Arnette has once again updated his Everest 2009 page, answering that very question.

Alan has taken a survey of the list prices for all the top guide services on Everest this year and put them down easily to read the chart. Prices range from the “low-end” of an estimated $26,000 from Asian Trekking all the way up to $65,000 from several of the bigger companies such as Adventure Consultants and Mountain Madness.

Of course, those prices don’t include the fact that you’ll need to have roughly two months of free time to devote to climbing the mountain either.

If you have more questions about climbing Everest, you’ll definitely want to bookmark Alan’s page dedicated to the mountain. He’s been there three times and follows the Everest scene very closely. He’s also posted links to some of the top guide services and some frequently asked questions when it comes to guides.

We’re still a few months away from the start of the Everest 2009 season, but the planning and preparation are already in full swing. It should be another interesting year.

  1. what about if i would like to join an international team, without any guide? it would be much cheaper, right?

  2. Great sounds like a great deal! when i get off my shift for the week im going down to the travel office and im going and im not going to spare any expense. Oh did i mention that i am a spinal surgeon, i make that much in one three hour shift oh and im also only twenty five and my wife is super hot!

  3. lol, i think the spinal surgeon guy has a nice humor. however are these prices only for the non Indians? cuz that converted in our money is a hell lot!
