Tibet: The World's Highest Trek
Hike to Camp III (21,100') on Mt. Everest
Repertory Trip: Next Offered May 29-June 27, 2016
May 29-June 27, 2016
Above the ice-clad realm of Camp III on the North Face of Everest unfolds one of world's most spectacular mountain panoramas: the huge rock palisades of Everest's Northeast Ridge, the wind-blown snows of the North Col, and most compelling of all, the instantly recognizable rock summit of Everest, or Chomolangma in the Tibetan language. The top of the world appears very close from here—and it is, only a little more than 8,000 feet above the high point of our trek. The surreal world of Camp III at 21,100 feet is the destination of this trek—the closest that non-climbers can get to the roof of the world. This special expedition has been created with our Trip Leader Gary McCue, author of Trekking Tibet: A Traveler's Guide, the definitive guide to trekking in Tibet. Gary calls this amazing trekking journey "the ultimate adventure challenge for trekkers." It’s also an extraordinary opportunity to discover Tibet with a Trip Leader renowned for his knowledge of the Himalayan world and Tibet’s extraordinary culture.
