I just wanted to drop you folks a note and let you know that I had a wonderful time one the Everest trek in Nepal. World Expeditions did an awsome job from start to finish. The level of professionalism and care that was given each and everyone of us was just beyond words. I would also like to mention our group leader Bir Singh. He is an increadible leader in every aspect. From diplomat to medical expert you have an asset that really goes beyond the call. If you have any type of employee of the month or year he gets my vote for sure!

Our exploratory treks involve trekking in variable conditions, on some days more than eight or even twelve hours a day. They include travel along remote, ill defined trails and may venture into snow and ice requiring the use of mountaineering boots, crampons and ice axe. Expect to carry up to 12-15kgs in your rucksack on some stages of the expedition. You may well spend a reasonable portion of the trip at altitude (with some days in excess of 5500m) and normally have several camps on glaciers. You will need an excellent level of fitness and be completely comfortable in adverse weather conditions in remote areas. Suggested preparation: One hour of aerobic type exercise, four to five times a week for three to six months prior to departure. Hill walking with a pack in variable weather conditions.
