Smiles on Kala Pattar at 18,300 feet
-- “The Everest region is understandably one of the world’s most popular and spectacular hiking destinations”
, says One World director Andy Crisconi. “We want to offer people a way to celebrate this historic mountaineering achievement”
, Andy continues.
One World’s 60th Anniversary lodge trek to Everest Base begins with a spectacular flight from Kathmandu to the 9,000-foot airstrip at Lukla. The group will follow the traditional expedition route taken by Hillary and Tenzing, first to the Sherpa capital of the Khumbu, the village of Namche Bazaar, and onwards to the high valley below Everest.
The group will have the option of hiking to the top of the viewpoint peak of Kala Pattar (18,188 feet), before spending the day (and night camping) at Everest Base Camp on the very day Mount Everest was first climbed by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa.
