Special anniversary trek to mark 60 years since Everest first summited

The Adventure Company will lead a special Everest Base Camp trek in May 2013 to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the first successful summit of Mount Everest by Sir Edmond Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing.

After a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, travellers will trek to Namche Bazaar before taking the ancient Tibetan trade route to Sherpa Tenzing’s home village of Thame for a special celebratory Sherpa dinner and festivities. After a night in the village, the group will visit the school which Hillary founded in Khumjung, before continuing to Everest Base Camp.

Led by an experienced Everest summitter, the special 18-day trek departs on 24 May 2013 and offers travellers the opportunity to reach Everest Base Camp, experience five of the 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Nepal and take part in a unique anniversary celebration. It costs from £1,959 per person, including international and domestic flights, hotel and teahouse accommodation, English-speaking guides and local porters.

A maximum of 16 people will be able to join the anniversary trek and travellers who book by 31 January 2013 quoting the promotional code 9566 can save £100 per person.
