Coming down to earth….
Having just come back from the Himalaya it always takes a while to come back down to earth. Doing something huge like taking on the challenge of trekking to Everest Base Camp doesn't just change your life, it changes YOU!
This is the time of year when I go back to the Himalaya, taking with me a group of people who have decided they want a life changing experience, and want to come to Everest Base Camp with me, to have a look at what I think is the most beautiful mountain on the planet, to experience for themselves the awe-inspiring grandeur of one of the most special places on earth. If you read my News Letters that I was sending back whilst on the trek (which you can get by signing up for at the bottom of my Home page) then you will know that everyone had the most amazing time. Here is what some of them said about the trip:
"Arrived home thursday back to reality, could just round and go straight back. We both had a really wonderful time, the trip exceeded our expectations and we cannot thank you enough for making this possible, you have been an inspiration to us both." Ally and Mandy, Beauly, Inverness-shire
"The experience was life changing. To immerse oneself in Nepalese culture whilst being surrounded by the grandeur and might of the Himalaya is an experience that everyone should encounter in their lifetime."
Stuart, Diggle, Manchester
"It was a fabulous overall exprience. The sounds and sights of Kathmandu, the physical exertion of trekking to 18,500ft, the companionship of fellow travellers, the majesty of the scenery were all truly unforgettable. Indeed it was a privilege to have had the experience." Alan and Jo, Kingussie, Inverness-shire
Every time I come home from the Himalaya I can't wait to go back again – it does that too you – and I am now organizing my next trek to Everest Base Camp which is in October. Details can be found on this website. I only have a limited number of places, some of which are already booked. If you feel that something in your life needs changing then a trip to the high Himalaya, far away from western culture and from what we call normal life, can often give you the perspective you need to be able to make the right decisions. And achieving something as challenging as trekking to Everest Base Camp at 5,300 metres, will give you the confidence and self-belief to be able to do anything at all in your life. Achieving a huge goal like that is unquestionably life changing. And you have absolutely no idea what you can do until and unless you try!
