All sherpas will ferry loads up to the high camps above Base Camp.
A Sherpa will always be assigned to accompany and assist any member or group while climbing.
For safety and service, the Eco Everest Expedition engages a ratio of more than one Sherpa to each member. Eco Everest Expedition will also station two extra Climbing Sherpas at Camp 4 for emergency and rescue circumstance.
All costs for the Sherpa's meals, accomodation, oxygen etc. are all covered in the package.
The Climbing Sirdar manages all aspects of load ferrying and high camp establishing. The Sirdar will manage the climbing rotation and duties of all Climbing Sherpas.
Before the Final Push to the summit, a named summit Sherpa will be paired with each member at Base Camp.
The Summit Sherpa will climb together with the member from Base Camp to the summit and back.
A additional personal sherpa can be hired from Asian Trekking.
The personal Sherpa will climb with the member at all times. The personal Sherpa will also help to carry gear, equipment and water, etc.
During summit push, the member will be accompanied by a personal Sherpa and a summit sherpa. When members are on rest at Base Camp, personal Sherpas will help with ferrying loads and setting up camp.
There are two types of bonuses. The Sherpa bonuses are extra to the package costs. Each member is charged for only one Sherpa unless they have taken the services of extra personal Sherpas. In this case, the member will need to cover the bonuses of all Sherpas that are engaged for the member.
The Sherpa receives this bonus for assisting members, load ferrying and setting up high camps. The Climbing bonus is not refundable.
The summit bonus is automatically granted to the Sherpa upon climbing higher than Camp 4 with the member. The summit bonus is not refundable if the Sherpa and member climb above Camp 4. Both bonuses will be collected by Asian Trekking before departure of the expedition from Kathmandu. The summit bonus will be refunded by Asian Trekking upon the "no-objection" clearance from the expedition leader.
