This year we wanted to offer British Krav Maga members something different. In fact, not just different, something really special. A “Bucket list” type event that was truly a once in a lifetime thing.
We looked at various permutations of big adventurous activities from crossing the Atlantic, going down the Amazon, or an ultra-endurance event as a team.
We wanted something dramatic and accessible. Accessible both financially and physically – with preparation. And it had to be a significant challenge.
Out of the blue, British Krav Maga’s very own little Indiana Jones, (Brian Smith) embarked on a trek to Everest Base Camp. The images coming back stunning, Brian was almost euphoric about the experience, and as a former Royal Marine Brian’s had his fair share of adventures.
Quite by chance, I found myself at a business training event and was partnered with a great guy called Andy Moore who just so happened to run Everest Base Camp Treks. A combination of Andy’s enthusiasm, Brians feedback and a healthy discount for British Krav Maga members and the die was set, we’d found our bucket list event.
The trek, from Lukla Airport to Everest Base Camp is one heck of challenge but more than achievable with the right preparation. This trip offers some amazing views of the tallest peaks in the world, including Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. Not only this but experience firsthand the unique culture, tradition, rituals and the lifestyle of the Sherpa people whilst following in famous mountaineering footsteps.
A great trekking trail, offering plenty of accommodation facilities with the special Sherpa hospitality making you feel well looked after. This trek is a serious and difficult challenge and upon reaching the end goal of Everest Base camp, it will be an emotional and satisfying experience. Take it all in and savour the moment.
The trek winds through the Khumbu region reaching the base of Mt Everest whilst offering adventurers a chance to also climb and summit Kala Patthar (5545 meters). All of this makes the Everest Base Camp trek the next thing to tick off your list.
