We train specialists in food preparation, cooking and serving, hygiene management, and equipment management. This level of specialized training and development far surpasses the training and deployment offered by other outfits. We simply go further than others to deliver a professional product and our clients thank us for the attention to detail.

Our porters stand out

Specialized mountain crew members who join every trek:

  • Mountain Chef – Our Mountain Chefs are trained to the highest standards because good nourishment is a priority for our climbers. They specialise in cooking set menu plans based on specially created and highly detailed recipes. Every year we review and improve recipes while our Chefs undergo additional training including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu plans.
  • Waiters – Each trek has a Head Waiter and an Assistant Waiter (depending on service level) to ensure a professional meal service and keeping the dining tent clean & organized.
  • Campsite Manager – Our Campsite Managers organise the expert setup and breakdown of each camp, and practice the Leave No Trace wilderness ethics.
  • Porters – Our happy, highly trained porters carry trekkers’ gear from camp to camp. They are well-trained, professional, friendly, helpful and the strongest porters on the mountain.
  • Camp Set Up Crew – Our fastest porters reach the next camp location first, to secure the best tent sites daily.
  • Sanitary Services Crew – This specialist team is trained in sanitary services including collection and treatment of drinking water and managing hand-washing stations for climbers.
  • Waste crew – All of our treks provide private restroom tents with portable flush chemical toilets. The waste crews maintain, clean and sanitize the toilets, and restock toilet tissue and hand sanitizer.  In special campsites, we also carry out all our solid human waste using patented PETT toilets and ‘wag-bags’.

Best Responsible Guide Company

Thank you for the most amazing trip with the best bunch of guides and porters you could wish for…

The pictures are now doing the rounds and we are having a big get together at a local pub tomorrow evening to show all the pictures and videos taken and that will be a great evening and you and all of our guides etc will be very much in our thoughts. Our group had Honest, Nastoria, Edward and Laizer as our guides and they were absolutely fantastic. Please, please pass on our huge thanks to them all for their expert advice and encouragement that managed to get us all to the top and this was solely due to their magnificent help. The food was absolutely top class (better than the Lodge!!) and Good Luck a delight as our waiter.

I can’t thank you enough for the experience, something I know that will stay with me forever
