    Not sure when this trip was posted, but I would be curious to see the estimated cost, time table for payment, and the training plan for doing Everest @ 29,000 ft. My daughter's GS troop hiked Machu Pichu (14,000 ft) so they trained 7 days in Idaho Seven Devils (9,000 ft) to prepare for the elevation.

      Hi Trisha,

      March 30, 2013

    • Swamy K.

      sorry for the late reply. Our training plan includes daily runs/bike rides on the W&OD trail, regular climbing in Great falls park and Vertical Rock/Sport Rock. As part of the plan we will do some backpacking trips and extreme day hikes in Shenandoah (26+ miles in a day) and a few trips to the White mountains and the Cascades. Complete the Presidential traverse in the whites in winter and Mt. Baker in summer.

    I'd love to, but I am not a mountaineer.

      If you are in good shape, we can train and prepare you here locally.

    Hi, can we follow the climb day-to-day on this FB page or elsewhere?

  • Swamy K.

    Hi Sena,
    The climb is starting today. It is led by my friend Shekar and has been flagged off by the president of India. Please check out the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TranscendAdventures
    for details.

    Unfortunately, no one from DC signed up so I won't be going but I will post this again for next season and I if we have a few people sign up I will train the group and lead them next year.

    If you are interested please send me an email. We can meet at my company's "Cozy Layers" and "Cozy Expeditions" location in Reston: 11317 Sunset Hills Rd, VA, 20190 for details.

    Evvie,
    This is not a base camp trek. It is a climb to the summit of Everest.

    Anila,
    This meetup is closed. Payment was due Dec 31st.

    Thanks,
