Everest Base Camp Trek for SpinalCure & Surf Life Saving
Trek to Everest Base Camp, be part of a world record and help those in need. Does it get any better? Yes, yes, it does...
Trek to the famous Everest Base Camp and take part in Steve Plain's WORLD RECORD attempt of summitting the 7 summits in under 4 months! By participating in this journey you will also be raising funds for SpinalCure and Surf Life Saving WA. These moneys will go towards helping prevent spinal cord injuries and helping those with spinal cord injuries walk again, their own personal Everest.
This adventure of a life time starts in the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. Here you will get to experience the sensory overload of sounds, smells and sights as you tour ancient ruins and UNESCO heritage sites and experience the remarkable Nepalese culture.
Next up, we head to the mountains by flying to the famous Lukla airport. From here you then trek to the mighty Everest Base Camp at 5,300m! On the way you will stay in the famous Nepalese teahouses surrounded by the glorious Himalaya all while you learn about Sherpa culture.
At Everest Base Camp you will get to meet Steve and be part of the record. You will get to complete a real acclimatisation trek with Steve just before his planned summit push of Mt Everest. You will also get the chance to chat with Steve about the record attempt and his incredible journey from hospital bed to summit.
