It’s been said that everything, and everyone, has a price. Quite often, especially surrounding viral experiences and beacons of triumphant self-worth, someone is willing to sign the ledger, no matter how ridiculous it sounds. No further proof will ever be needed than this: you can now glamp your way up Mount Everest.
Thanks to Russian guide Alex Abramov and his company 7 Summits Co, those with the dough can trade roughing it for relaxing on the Tibetan side of the world’s tallest peak. Why? Because goddammit, the most cosmopolitan of trekkers should be able to stand on the summit of summits too. Clearly, the rewarding feeling you get from putting in the effort to actually hike up Everest is overrated.
