Okay ladies – we’re on!
The presence of your amazing company is requested.
Occasion: Everest Circuit & Cho La Trek
Date: March/April 2015
Place: The Himalayas
BYO: Your sense of adventure, your zest for life and a determination to succeed in whatever challenge you set yourself.
I’m going back.
Next March/April I’ll be heading back to Nepal to do another Everest trek and this time I’m taking with me a group of ladies. Together with Shelley from Brice & Turner Travel Associates we’re putting together a group of Wanderlust Women and we’re going to tackle the Everest Circuit & Cho La.
You don’t need to live in Australia to take part in this trek – we’ll be meeting up in Kathmandu, so I’m hoping to find a few of my overseas blogging friends putting their hands up for this.
This is a 22 day trip that includes a couple of days in Kathmandu at the beginning and end of the trek. We’ll be staying at the Radisson Hotel in Kathmandu (so, a little luxury to come back to after the trek) and we’ll be taking a sightseeing tour around the city. We’ll visit Pashupatinath and Boudhanath and there’ll also be time for us to wander around Thamel.
The trek itself will take 18 days – we’ll fly up to Lukla at 2,800 metre in a Twin Otter aircraft and then begin our trek through the lush lower slopes of the Himalayas as we head up towards Everest.
As we ascend above 4,000 metres our surroundings will change as the terrain becomes more barren and more uniquely beautiful, we’ll be in the presence of some awe inspiring mountains as they look down upon us and watch our progress.
The Everest Circuit and the crossing of the Cho La Pass will provide magnificent views of the highest mountains on the planet – Everest, Kanchenjunga, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. We’ll look down on the stunning, green, glacial Gokyo Lakes and we’ll ascend Gokyo Ri (5,483m) and Kala Pattar (5,545m).
Why should you come with us?
Simple really, why wouldn’t you?
This will be an unforgettable experience and a privilege to be part of. We’re about to take a group of women where they’ve never gone before – literally and metaphorically.
We’re about to harness that wanderlust and that sense of adventure, that lies dormant in so many of us, and take a leap way out of our comfort zone.
We’re going to have fun.
We’re going to laugh together and cry together.
We’re going to encourage and empower one another.
We’re going to prove to ourselves that we can do it.
We’re going up into the Himalayas.
You’re interested, right?
Places on this amazing trip are limited so:
Let it swirl around in your head for a day or two, go to bed thinking about it, wake up in the morning thinking about it.
Think about the experience you’ll have, think about the feeling of standing amidst the highest mountains on the planet and the sense of achievement you’ll feel when you succeed.
Then do something about it!
Next step – if you’ve got any questions whatsoever, if you’d like a bit more information or if you’d like to book your spot.

There’s lots of clichés I could use here, but we all know that life’s short and we need to make the most of it, Mark Twain was a smart guy when he told us that
it’s the things in life that we don’t do
that we’ll come to regret.
I’ll leave you with this thought from Sir Edmund Hillary:
IT IS NOT THE MOUNTAIN WE CONQUER
