Event Overview
Welcome message:

The Everest Base Camp Wilderness and Expedition Medicine conference is one of the world's truly epic journeys. You will visit the highest and most spectacular mountains in the world. You will also travel through a wonderful cultural area and stay in inns in remote Sherpa villages. It should be on every adventurer's list of things "to do".

Our group will explore the exotic city of Kathmandu before flying into the remote mountain town of Lukla (9,250). At Lukla, we will begin our trek into the Khumbu region of the Himalayas for this unique Wilderness and Travel Medicine conference. We follow an ancient route that will take us through tiny villages, across high mountain passes, and through remote valleys. The views of the Himalayas are awe-inspiring as we venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar - the gateway to the Khumbu region at 11,300 feet. We spend one night next to the Thyangboche Monastery (12,700), which has spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse. We'll have a chance to meet the friendly Nepali people and soak up the colors, sights, and sounds of Sherpa village life.

Then it's on to the stunning rocky outcrop of Kala Pattar (18,450) where we feast on awesome panoramic views of countless peaks including arguably the best view of the South Face of Everest. Upon reaching Everest Base Camp (17,400) at the base of the Khumbu Icefall, get a first hand look at the expeditions preparing for their summit attempts in this spectacular and historical setting.

The Everest Base Camp Trek Wilderness and Expedition Medicine conferences are strenuous and you should be in excellent physical condition. It does not require that you have any previous trekking or mountaineering experience. You should be equipped with a spirit of adventure and the willingness to undergo the potential hardships of outdoor trekking and long days on the trail.
