EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK 2019
12 DAY TREK THROUGH THE HIMALAYAS + SUPPORT THE TRAINING OF LOCAL FEMALE GUIDES
APRIL 21 - MAY 5
avg group size: 15
There's no better way to discover the mountain that the Nepalese refer to as, Sagarmatha, Goddess of the Sky, than in the company of other adventurous women from around the world. Join us on the journey of a lifetime through the Himalayas to the base camp of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest! We’ll spend our days hiking around stupas, billowing prayer flags, and towering mountain peaks, and our evenings relaxing in local tea houses enjoying Nepalese hospitality and delicious Dal Bhat together.
For this adventure, we’re proud to be partnering with Take on Nepal, a local organization with deep roots in the Himalayan region, that's dedicated to training and employing young women from Batase village as porters and guides. This opportunity, which is traditionally seen as exclusively for men, gives young women valuable paid work, skills, and life experience that will lead them towards a brighter future filled with more hope and independence. Sharing this experience and seeing the Himalayas through the eyes of these amazing young women makes this already incredible adventure that much more special. Together, let’s feel what it’s like to be on top of the world!
