BSC2 climbs to Everest Base Camp

6th May 2019

When asked the question “Would she do this again?? Most definitely.

On the 13th of April Tracy Mawer joined a group of 7 others to commence a 19 day trek to Everest Base Camp.  After arriving in vibrant Kathmandu she took an ‘interesting and heart-stopping’ internal flight to Lukla airport to start our trek.  In the first few days the team passed through many villages greeting ‘Namaste’ to the locals and waving to the friendly children.  They crossed many long suspension bridges – often waiting for the yaks or donkeys to cross first.  To say the scenery was spectacular was an understatement, and as they trekked higher within the Himalayas, the surrounding mountains were truly breathtaking.   The trek was physically challenging, with the relentless climbs and the high altitude, reaching base camp (5364 metres) made it all worthwhile.   When asked the question “Would she do this again?? Most definitely.  Nepal is a very beautiful and welcoming country and has so much to offer travelers, trekkers and climbers.

During her trek Tracy raised funds for RNBT.
