In April 2015, a group of 21 dedicated, adventurous people will travel to the Khumbu region of Nepal to join Team Leader and Dream Mountains Foundation founder Shawn Dawson on a trip of a lifetime.
The team will spend a few days in the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, before flying to Lukla, a traditional Nepali village perched on the side of a mountain in the Himalayas. It is here that they will begin their trek to Everest Base Camp.
The trek comes after months of preparation: physical training, team building, and raising funds & awareness for 7 local and international charities.
Leaving Lukla at an elevation of 2,700m, the team will trek further into Sagarmatha National Park. They will pass through villages, cross suspension bridges, climb hills, and descend into valleys. They will have the privilege of visiting a monastery, a local Sherpa market, a museum, and many family-run tea houses.
The team will rest briefly in Gorek Shep, the last village before the Khumbu Icefall. They will then press onwards, to the base of highest mountain in the world.
It is on the Khumbu Icefall that Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay, prepared for their historical first summit of Everest in 1953.
Reaching Everest Base Camp at an elevation of over 17,000 feet, the team will share the rewarding experience of having reached their goal.
This journey is made possible by the support of family and friends who all believe in a common goal: Dare to Dream.
Ordinary people, doing Extraordinary things. One Step at a Time.
