Everest Fast-Track

Mount Everest is undoubtedly on the bucket list of every adventurer. Who wouldn't want to conquer the highest mountain on the planet? Yet for the busy modern professional, finding two free months to achieve this life goal can almost feel as difficult as the climb itself. 

That’s why we launched our 29-day Fast-Track Everest Expedition, to help you reach the top of the world in record time.

Climb like a record-breaker, to the top of the world

Based on our leader Nimsdai’s approach to climbing the world’s highest mountain at world record speed and returning safely, our unique Fast-Track Everest expedition enables you to reach the summit in just 29 days — a full month faster than our standard Everest expedition.

Our industry-leading expertise in the Himalayas isn’t based on speed alone. It’s been accumulated over many years of guiding on these mountains in all conditions. We control every aspect of the expedition, to ensure that we achieve the highest standards without compromising on safety.

Our Everest guides are summit veterans, skilled in rope fixing, icefall navigation, and high-altitude rescue. With a 1:1 guide ratio and emergency helicopter access, we prioritize your safety on this unforgiving climb.

To maximize your chances of success, we will also provide hypoxic training services for eight weeks beforehand at the Altitude Center - the UK’s best training centre. You will receive kits from the UK's number one altitude training specialists with online consultation and individual training programmes tailored towards you. All of this will ensure that you can have a better rest and recover at lower oxygen levels as per the expedition conditions.

You’ll also join the group later, after everything is set up and the team is ready for the acclimatization push. This eliminates the wait period at Base Camp experienced by the standard group.

We don’t see our clients as clients - we see them as friends and fellow high-achievers. People who, like us, have made chasing their dreams a priority, taking time out of their demanding work schedules to do so. We know why you climb because we feel the same way. That means we’ll make sure no stone is left unturned in our quest to help you achieve those dreams in double-quick time. We know how it feels to stand on top of the world. It’s our dream to be able to share that with you.

From our clients
Jeff Evans
Mera 2017

You can trust them with the safety and satisfaction of clients. Elite was nothing less than a 10/10 in every aspect of how they executed the expedition.

Steve Davis
Manaslu 2019

Manaslu was my first 8,000er and first time with Elite. They exceeded my expectations at every level and stage.  I would have no hesitation in booking with them again! Highly recommended!!!

Amy McCulloch
Aconcagua 2018

I often felt they went above and beyond to ensure we had a successful expedition. Excellent judgments throughout the expedition led us to reach the summit safely in extreme conditions. Highly recommend!

Frequently asked questions

The following frequently asked questions may help answer any queries you have about Elite Exped, what this expedition involves, and what is required. If your question isn’t answered here please check our dedicated FAQ support page, otherwise don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Will Nims or Mingma David be my guide?

Nimsdai and Mingma David will personally guide many of our expeditions, but they, unfortunately, cannot be present on every Elite Exped trip.

Both are incredibly hands-on with the preparation and planning of all our operations, however. Every expedition we undertake is based on their expedition plans, tried and tested during Project Possible and their other record-breaking feats.

Why choose
Elite Exped?


Nimsdai Purja, Mingma David Sherpa’s and Mingma Tenzi’s mountaineering groundbreaking records speak for themselves, but our leaders are more than just supremely talented climbers.

While some choose to direct operations from back office, our three directors lead from the front. Their experience in every aspect of guiding and climbing — from fixing ropes to organising logistics — is unparalleled. It's no surprise that they have the industry-leading success rate when it comes to summiting 8,000m peaks.

Beyond this, our handpicked team of guides have also chalked up dozens of successful summits between them.

Safety through

If it’s controllable we control it: this is key to attaining and maintaining our industry-leading strategy for success and safety.

We maximise our options, agility and responsiveness by running self-sufficient expeditions that don’t rely on any other teams to achieve our objectives.

Our team is capable of setting up our own fixed lines (with a proven track record on all 8,000m peaks) and has backups to cover all scenarios. These include everything from secondary oxygen supplies to the ability and experience to operate our own rescue missions if the situation arises.

A unique

With his Nepalese roots and UK residency, our co-founder Nimsdai Purja brings a unique perspective and an unparalleled ability to bridge the gap between Western and Himalayan climbing cultures.

We can assemble trusted teams and networks anywhere in the world, but our founders’ roots are a particular advantage when it comes to summiting the world’s very highest peaks.

An intimate knowledge of how things work on the ground ensures that everything runs smoothly when you’re 8,000m above sea-level.

Combo Packages

Mount Everest is undoubtedly on the bucket list of every climber. Who wouldn't want to conquer the highest mountain on the planet? But the most dedicated and skilled mountaineers won’t want to stop there, of course, which is where Elite Exped’s combo packages come in. This expedition offers you the chance to bag two 8,000m summits - the first and fourth-highest mountains in the world - in a single climbing season. For high achievers, goals don’t come much greater than this.


K2 isn’t nicknamed “the savage mountain” for nothing. The world’s second highest peak is arguably the toughest challenge in mountaineering. For a long time it was considered unconquerable, and most climbers will still leave at least 60 days for a summit bid. At Elite Exped, we understand that such timescales are often incompatible with modern, professional careers, which is why we launched our fast-track K2 expedition. We can help you conquer the savage mountain in half the time.

8000m Peaks

K2 isn’t nicknamed “the savage mountain” for nothing. The world’s second-highest peak is arguably the toughest challenge in mountaineering. For a long time, it was considered unconquerable and the number of successful expeditions was very low.
