How much does it cost to climb Everest?

How much money does it take to climb Mt. Everest?

1 Answer

"The oft-quoted fee for a guided climb is $65,000, though the price varies depending on the size of the expedition and the outfitter.

In addition to the semi-standard $65,000 guided climb, climbers must account for a mountain of equipment. Starting from scratch, a climber can expect to pay roughly $8,000 just to get the basics (See Alpine Ascents International's gear recommendations at Tack on a sat phone, digital camera, laptop and other luxury items and the bill rockets to about $15,500. But no one climbs Everest from scratch. Most expedition operators require an extensive climbing resume, which often includes an 8,000-meter summit bid with the company before an Everest attempt is made."
