Summit for Someone: Everest Base Camp

Join Big City Mountaineers for a Charity Trek to Everest Base Camp!

Every year, Summit for Someone climbers join together to ascend some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains to improve the lives of under-served youth. The vital funding that is raised through Summit for Someone makes it possible for Big City Mountaineers to deliver transformational wilderness mentoring expeditions to urban youth across the country in need of positive adult guidance in challenging and restorative environments. Mt. Everest, standing mightily at 8848m. The world’s highest peak and the ultimate Himalayan dream for many trekkers. This Everest trek allows more time for acclimatization and enables you not only to witness Mount Everest but also the 4th & 5th highest peaks: Lhote at 8516m, Makalu 8467m. See why this region is known as the Roof of the World as you pass through numerous charming villages, many with picturesque gompas that are spectacularly set amidst its mountainous surrounding. Before reaching the Everest Base camp, the trail follows the Khumbu Glacier with huge ice pinnacles soaring to unbelievable heights. You then fly to Lukla and trek through the Dhuda Koshi valley through beautiful pine and rhododendron trees- the jagged, ice & snow capped peaks of Thamseku 6623m & Kushum Kanguru 6369m, towering above. You will visit Thyangboche monastery and complete your trek with views of Mt. Everest 8848m, Lhotse 8516m, Ama Dablam 6856m, Thamserku 6623m, and Kangtenga 6779m.
