Everest Base Camp Charity Challenge
The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the world’s classic challenges. Ever since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay achieved the summit in 1953 thousands of trekkers across the globe have thought to themselves ‘well, perhaps I can at least make it to the base camp!’ We would be delighted to assist your charity by assisting you with offering your own exclusive trek to Everest Base Camp. The Everest Base Camp trek takes you into one of the most spectacular regions of Nepal, the Khumbu, where the Sherpa culture thrives amongst the highest peaks in the world. The Everest massif as seen from Thyangboche and Kala Pattar is a sight you will never forget, and the hospitality of these tough mountain people will remain with you for a long time.
This is the traditional trek to view Everest, following the historic trail; it will appeal to those who wish to retrace the steps of history to the base of Everest in the aid of your charity. Our crew will ensure high catering and hygiene standards whilst providing the comfort of staying in specially selected Sherpa lodges. We have been operating treks since 1975 and are the world’s most experienced Himalayan trekking operators. Our high standards of service, looked over by our very experienced first aid trained local Nepali guides, will ensure that all you need to worry about is taking on the challenge of the trek!
