Everest Base Camp Expedition April 2018

In April 2018 Jason Rawles is taking an intrepid team of people to Everest Base Camp for the trip of a lifetime, and are looking for people who would like take part. This is an amazing opportunity to trek the beautiful foothills of Nepal while immersing yourself in the stunning culture. We get to see wonders and places that normal trekking groups don't see and spend time assisting, and helping, the next generation of Nepalese with their education and the future of an amazing country.

For the month of May there is a special discount on the deposit meaning for ONLY £425 you can secure your space on this wonderful trekking experience (normally £500). Final payment of $1,600 is then due at the start of the expedition in Kathmandu.

This is an opportunity to challenge yourself, be immersed in a stunning culture/environment and give something to the wonderful people of Nepal. Help the next generation of Nepalese kids with their education and create the right environment for them to learn.

What Jason Rawles Has to Say

Nepal has a very special place in the heart of Jason Rawles for some of the following reasons as explained by himself –

The people:

My first trip to the region changed them. At that point in my life I was measuring my life success as a percentage against a target or the type of car being driven. The simplicity of life in Nepal is refreshing and the beauty of the culture will knock you sideways. Imagine waking up and living every second of your day for the good of others. This is what Nepalese people do.

Two people I cared for died in the avalanche that swept through Everest that was initiated by the earthquake. Such an unfair card to be dealt to people who give their all, for everyone and everything, rather than themselves. It was then that we made the decision to run commercial operations to Nepal, as our money being pumped in to their economy will help far more than a couple of nice Facebook posts.

The environment:

I’m sure you’ve all seen pictures. The scenery is nothing short of staggering. Still, after many trips, I am left breathless by what unfolds in front of me. You’ll see famous mountains, monasteries, architecture, rivers, gorges and much, much more. But sometimes you have to remember to put the camera down and just soak it all up as a picture won’t recreate what your eyes are absorbing.

The challenge:

Being at high altitude is hard and back to back days on your feet can debilitate. While these words may project difficulty, and it is, what it also represents is a challenge. We all love a challenge don’t we?!?

My promise is, if we work together in advance, and we plan correctly, you’ll be able to achieve this and you’ll revel in a new found confidence and belief in capability.

What’s also really important is that this expedition provides an experience way beyond what other operators can offer. We bring fair wages to sherpa’s and porters and we consider the local guides as friends and I personally know, and care for, their families and children.

We go to places and see things that other treks cannot offer or get access to because of the deep relationships we have.

We also know the area like the back of our hands and have extensive experience at high altitude including dealing with medical issues and having the correct safety management procedures in place.

Expedition life is fantastic. We stay in lodges along the way which means we get to immerse ourselves more deeply in to the culture. We have discussions with the owners and get stuck in to conversations about religion and the way of life. As we pass through villages we talk with the kids, and play games as we stop for tea and cake. While we have rest breaks to help acclimatise there is also an ever changing environment to make you go WOW with every second, of every day.

What we are hoping from this article is that we spread the word. Not just of this expedition but of the wonderful people in Nepal – so, yes, please think about coming along with Jason Rawles and the team. What we do, is very personal, and no other company can do what we offer.
