TREKKING TO EVEREST BASECAMP | AN ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME
March 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
What is a purple event?
During lockdown Adventure Geek launched a series of interesting talks every Wednesday night at 7pm (known as “purple events”). We have listened to talks about all sorts of adventures such as the Great Wall of China and Antarctica, to more serious topics such as mental health and the benefits of meditation.
From 1st February 2021 we will be presenting two talks a month on an ongoing basis. These talks will always be free of charge.
This week's speaker
Alison and her husband, Len, love to explore and when a friend said why don’t you join us for a trek to Everest Base Camp, it sounded like a great adventure!
If you have ever wondered what it is like to fly into one of the top 10 most dangerous airports in the world, trek at altitude, close to the tallest mountains in the world where the locals are kind, humble and resilient then make sure you come along to this presentation!
