I can't say enough about our Sherpas. They were all super helpful and friendly. I personally heard Sherpas with two other teams say that we had the strongest Sherpas on the mountain...
~Pete F.
You clearly have Himalayan climbing "dialed in" from years of experience. Nothing was overlooked. Safety was always top priority, and no shortcuts were allowed. And if I didn't immediately recognize this, the contrast couldn't have been more apparent as we moved up the mountain. I was so glad to be an IMG client. I don't want to criticize other services, but there really is a world of difference, and it's worth every penny!
~Robert M.
I had a great time on the Cho Oyu Expedition. IMG runs a first class operation. I saw no other of the 24+ expeditions on the mountain that even compared in organization, experience and quality... The Sherpas were far and away the best on the mountain... Our Expedition was one of the very few that kept everybody in good shape and condition to get each member to summit-day and give each member a realistic shot at the summit. The equipment and organization of IMG in getting us to the mountain and up without incident attests to a quality organization that few of the other expeditions on the mountain could match. Thanks for putting together such a good expedition, and I look forward to climbing with IMG in the future.
~Chris N.
In a nutshell, IMG was the class of the mountain. I can't imagine climbing with any other group. It seemed like many (the majority?) of the groups had no real plan, no type of actual guiding going on... We had a plan and moved as a team. We acclimatized right, rested at the right times and when the summit push came we were ready to roll...
