One Man One Million Dollars Everest Trek with Andrew Lock

Escorted by AHF Ambassador and one of Australia's greatest adventurers, Andrew Lock, this is a unique adventure. Australian Gary McCaw's One Man One Million campaign will raise funds for and awareness of the ongoing earthquake rebuilding work of the AHF. In Kathmandu we include sightseeing and time to visit AHF in-country partners before flying to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region for this trek of a lifetime. Combining our classic Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes treks with a stunning crossing of the non-technical Cho La pass provides an unsurpassed circuit trek of the Everest region.We make climbs of the popular Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar along the way, which provide magnificent photo opportunities of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, and views as far as Kanchenjunga in the east and the Tibetan 8000m peak Cho Oyu to the north. We will also view Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Cholatse, the beautiful pyramid of Ama Dablam, as well as countless other Himalayan peaks. Each night you will be accommodated in our private eco campsites as well as handpicked eco lodges. Another dimension to this adventure is the famous Sherpa culture providing a truly unforgettable experience.
