The "land portion" of this trip starts in Kathmandu on Apr 18, but if you are taking our pre-arranged flight from Los Angeles, we depart on Apr 16. The return flight comes back to LAX on May 03.
This is definitely a bucket list type of trip. It embodies adventure and the romance of traveling to far off places. It is also tempered with safety and do-ability.
First of all . . . this is NOT going up to the top of Everest (29,000). This is going to Everest Base Camp (17,600) also called EBC. Our starting elevation will be in Lukla at 9,400'.
The truth is if you can manage walking 3-6 hours a day, up and down a hill, while carrying a light backpack, you will be OK!
Professional guides and Porters to carry your gear are included. All that is left for you to carry is your water, snacks and camera.
But I don't have the needed gear?!
Our trip includes providing you with a North Face sleeping bag and parka, rated to -4F. As well as walking poles. So you don't have to buy them or pack in your suitcase.
Does this include food?
Yes. All meals are included.
What is lodging like?
We are sleeping in a series of "Tea Houses" along the route. You will have bed in a shared room with roommate (from the group). Sorry, a solo room will not be available on this trip. We will pair up everybody.
How dangerous is this? What if I get sick or hurt?
This is NOT the summiting Everest with people dying from bad choices. We will be walking on an established, well used trail the entire time, and NOT on snow or ice. Our trip INCLUDES emergency insurance. For instance: this will cover a helicopter if needed. We are also Certified Wilderness First Responders.
Plain and simple, safety is our primary goal. We will have an experienced guide and porters, and we will be along the entire way too.
