Action Medical Research - Trek Everest
19th November - 7th December 2013
Take on the mighty Himalayas and trek to the base of Everest for the experience of a lifetime!
The ancient kingdom of Nepal is a place of fascination and discovery. Here, among the world's highest mountains, you will discover a country that is remarkable for its breathtaking Himalayan scenery, its colourful culture and quite simply some of the best trekking on earth!
Home to the Sherpa people and the site of Everest, Lhotse and Cho Oyu - three of the world's seven highest mountains - the Khumbu region of Nepal is unquestionably the best place for trekking in the Himalayas. While most of us can only dream of summiting Everest, this stunning 19-day adventure allows us to become seduced by the myths and excitement of this mighty mountain, explore the foothills and discover the vibrant region of the Sherpas.
Along the way, we will get to learn more about ancient Tibetan Buddhism from our local guides. Evidence of this devotion abounds everywhere in the Khumbu - prayer flags flutter from rooftops, stones inscribed with prayers line the trails and the sounds of Tibetan chanting can be heard resounding through the valleys. Our goal is the summit of Kala Pattar, 5,545 metres, which sits at the base of the highest mountain in the world - Everest. From here, we can enjoy spectacular views of this magnificent mountain. This trek is your chance to explore this fascinating region of extreme geography, sacred Buddhist sites and ancient history. It is nothing short of breathtaking!
