It ain’t cheap to climb Everest

Another great post by Alan Arnette over on his blog discusses the costs associated with the various ways of climbing Mt. Everest. The bottom line is that no matter whether you go it alone, with a team, a small team or a big team, or with a five star chef at your side, you’re going to pay no less than $20,000 for the entire trip. The higher-end full service expeditions get closer to $100,000.

On one hand I’d day that these amounts seem insane, but then again, given the extreme nature of the challenge and the desire to do it safely (and usually comfortably) can push people to spend a lot of money.
