Luton2Everest Challenge 2018 - Our Story
In April 2018, We will be undertaking a 14 day trek to the legendary but notorious Mount Everest.
We will be undertaking this trek on behalf of MeA Community Centre a Registered Charity - which supports feeding the Homeless and Hungry and will be a coordination point for volunteers for human crises around the world where children and the most vulnerable have been impacted by conflict or natural disasters, including local disadvantaged people and deprived communities across the UK, regardless of their faith, gender or cultural background.
Mount Everest is the highest peak on Earth at 8,850 meters (29’035 feet) above sea level. No other mountain on Earth has a higher altitude.
The air is 50% thinner, there’s steep climbs and rocky roads, Yaks that push you off the edge and a place called Dead Ravens (Gorak shep)
Our trek will begin in the ancient city of Kathamandu where we will fly to Lukla Airport- famously known as ‘The Most Dangerous Airport in the World’. On a daily basis, we will be walking anything between 5-8 hours a day. This will include crossing suspension bridges, walking up steep paths and slowly ascending in to thin air. We will be acclimatising on a daily basis as the air gets thinner and the weather gets colder! Eventually, We will reach Mount Everest Base Camp where there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. If we feel braver, we will go one step further to the Khumbu Glacier Falls which is approx 6000m above sea level and raise the Flag of Community Centre that flies above the MeA Community.
We will aim to post updates of our training between now and the trek, and concluding with sharing pictures of Mount Everest as viewed from Base Camp. However, this will be a mountainous (pun intended) effort and I will need you to support and motivate us. Please open your hearts and your (online) pockets and donate so MeA Community Centre can continue to support disadvantaged and deprived local & national communities across the UK.
Please sponsor and follow our incredible journey to Everest on here but importantly, get on board - Join the team and help raise the flag!
