So here's the story

 

 

I used to train with a champion boxer in Cairns, Ken Dalton, who won quite a few National Titles and then some.

 

  He knew how to push me to my absolute limit, and if he could sense that I was slowing down, he would

work me harder.

He would always start the session with the same words and there has never been a better time to use them.

 

"So here's the story".

After the world went into lockdown we were constantly asked when we thought it would be safe to head abroad.

 

Until recently, that was such a tough question to answer, which made planning for the future a real challenge.

People are getting interested again and have the itch to travel, which we have seen in an influx of bookings.

 Consumer confidence is returning.

Everest One are finally heading back to Nepal in September 2022 to guide a climb to the true summit of Manaslu (8216m), the 8th highest mountain in the world, with a world class Sherpa guiding team.

In October 2022, we will be guiding on Mera Peak (6476m), with the most stunning 10 day trek into its Base Camp, followed by an introductory 3 day Himalayan climb with 2 high camps up on the mountain. 

 

And then in November 2022, we are finally back leading adventurers through the majestic peaks and spiritual landscape on the trek to Everest Base Camp.

With the chance to get back to Kilimanjaro in December 2022, we are now planning to fill the 2023 adventure travel calendar, giving everyone the chance to explore.

So here is a quick breakdown of the current travel situation with the countries Everest One travel to.
