This Trek is a collaborative effort with my friend Karma Sherpa who is also the operator of Sherpa Mountain Adventures a Sherpa owned guide company with years of experience leading treks and mountaineering expeditions on Everest and in the Himalayas.
The Good Karma Trek will follow trails that circuit around the jaw-dropping mountain arena of the Himalayas and into Everest Base Camp, home to the world's highest peak, Mt Everest! I will have the opportunity to see first hand, the majesty of Sagarmatha (Everest name in Nepal) and Chomolungma (Everest name in Tibet).
The Good Karma Trek is a Fundraiser! It supports my EVEREST Climb to fight breast cancer, raising research dollars for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. You can help me climb Everest by donating on my Gofundme site- Everest Climb to fight Breast Cancer This will help cover my expenses (permits, guide fees, equipment, etc.)
I'm thankful for the opportunity to be at Everest base camp a year BEFORE I attempt the summit of Everest (2016). I will be able to enjoy it's beauty this season without that inevitable anxiety of knowing I have to climb it, LOL. This trek will also serve as training and a chance to gather information about the area, the routes, the weather and my physical performance there.
