Target Date: April/May, 2016
Are you interested in joining us on a trek to Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas in the Spring of 2015?
The trek is a classic introduction to the Himalayas and will serve to acclimatize those members of the team that will be climbing Baden-Powell Peak (19,324 ft./5,890 m.) immediately following the EBC trek (see details below).
Mountaineering experience is not required for trekkers.
Here is the itinerary of a Vancouver-based guiding outfit to use as an example of what to expect on this trip:
As mentioned above, immediately following this trek, some or all of the members of the EBC trek team will travel to Langtang National Park, Nepal, to attempt to climb Baden-Powell Peak (19,324 ft./5,890 m.). Those not wishing to climb but wanting to come to the mountain as a trekking experience are welcome! Langtang National Park is a far less travelling part of the Himalayas and will present an entirely different experience than the trek to EBC. You can stay in the beautiful village at the base of the mountain and enjoy the culture while the climbing team heads up the mountain.
