Mt. Everest or "Sagarmatha" is the world's highest mountain at 8848m (29,028 ft.) above sea level.
Asian Trekking is organising the Eco Everest Expedition (2017) under the leadership of expedition doctor, Dr. Nima Namgyal Sherpa and sirdar Nanga Dorje Sherpa.
We will be following the Eco Everest Expedition 2008 Model.
Our focus will be on climbing in an eco-sensitive manner, bringing old garbage, in addition to our own, and all human waste produced on the mountain down to base camp for proper disposal. We will once again be using our highly successful alternative energy solutions like the Parabolic Solar Cookers, Steripens for water puirification, Clean Mountain Cans and Restop Bags
