Everest Base Camp Trek 2019

Greetings from Kathmandu!

Our EBC trekkers have arrived and this morning (after a 3.00am start) have arrived at Ramechamp for their flights to Lukla. Over the next few weeks we are planning to follow their journey with daily blogs, updates and videos from the team.

Our team members are: Gavin, Lubi, Kristyn, David, Wills, Jane & Chris. They have been having a wonderful few days here in Kathmandu and after already witnessing a few fun moments this trek certainly promises some hilarity and life changing experiences.

Please share the stories, follow our social media pages ( Facebook / Instagram/ Twitter/The Umbrella Foundation Australia) we want as many people as possible to read our stories, especially our trekkers families and friends.

Our trekkers are also undertaking this trek to support the post earthquake rebuild of the Shree Bhimsen Secondary school in Sindhupalchowk………one of the worst effected areas in the 2015 quake which ironically was four years yesterday.

Young Will’s who is 12 has set up a GiveNow cause and we would so appreciate if you can support him….no amount is too much with all donations over $2 tax deductible!
