Disappear into “Thin Air” and join our Everest base Camp Trek.

In October 2018 #TeamZoë’s will be departing from Kathmandu, Nepal for an EPIC Expedition.  The aim will be to undertake a once in a lifetime experience and trek the Himalayas and reach Everest Base Camp.

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE TREK AND WATCH OUR INFORMATION EVENING VIDEO 

The expedition, led by Dom Pickett, does not require any technical skills or special equipment, however the journey is not to be taken lightly.  Your commitment is needed to complete the required training and reach your fundraising target – but – you will be rewarded by a nearly “out of this world” experience, by reaching Everest Base Camp at nearly 5,350m above sea level.

One of the classic treks of the world, you will see colourful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries all with a backdrop of stunning mountain scenery.   The trek starts with an exciting flight to the mountain airstrip at Lukla and from here we follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers for the trek to Everest Base Camp.

The trek is designed with plenty of time for the necessary acclimatisation. Our route takes you through pretty Sherpa and the famous mountain town of Namche Bazaar, the colourful and vibrant heart of Sherpa country. We will trek to Tengboche, one of the highest monasteries in the world and finally hike from Gorak Shep along the Khumbu glacier to Everest Base Camp.

Dom Pickett is a highly experienced climber and expedition leader, he has accomplished many personnel goals including reaching the summit of Mount Everest in 2011.   Dom currently has a 100% success rate for those reaching Everest Base Camp, so as long as you follow our training guidelines you have the best chance of reaching the dizzying heights of Everest base Camp.

Curious?  Download the event documents and booking pack for more details.  Even better, why not come to our information evening on 10th October 2017 at GO Outdoors Coventry at 6.30pm.
