The walk:

Everest Base Camp Walk, 1st to 14th September 2019

My daughter challenged me to do the walk with her "before I got too old !" It seemed an ideal opportunity to raise money for charity, and with the Hakim Group involved in such a worthy cause, Vision Aid Overseas was the obvious choice.

We fly out to Kathmandu on 29th August, where we will acclimatize for a short while, before flying to the Himalayas.

Starting from Lukla, at an altitude of 9,383 feet, we will traverse through rhododendron and pine forests, rivers,Sherpa villages and Buddhist Monasteries, from temperate to snow line regions, arriving at Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 17,600 feet.
