Participant Information

As part of an Expedition to climb Ama Dablam, I'm trying to organise a trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC) which will join the Ama Dablam climbing team for the majority of their trek. Please also read the description for the Ama Dablam trek so you have a better idea of the full plan.

The trip is being run by my friend Namgya Sherpa who has his own trekking company in Nepal. The trip is 19 days plus any travel/flying days, so allow 3 weeks door to door.

The trek to EBC, while not technical, is rather strenuous due to the high altitude. EBC sits at around 5,364m so good physical fitness is essential. There is also potential for some side trips to higher altitudes.

The base cost of this trip is $2025 USD. This is based on 6 trekkers and does NOT include flights. See the attached trip costs for all included and excluded costs. If there's high demand then we can increase the size of the group and this may bring the price down a bit. Feel free to invite friends or family who may be interested.
Please note that all prices are in USD! You need to do the necessary conversions to CAD.

I have attached the Itinerary, trip notes and cost information. 

PLEASE send me an email to introduce yourself before signing up, and to make sure that this trip is good fit for you! If you have and questions, please let me know.
