Spectrum’s Chief Executive, Dr Linda Harris, is heading off on a 16-day trekking adventure to the Mount Everest base camp on 6 April. All the funds raised on this epic 130km trek will be donated to our charity, Spectrum People – here’s how to show your support.
Setting off to conquer one of the most famous trekking trails in the world, Linda and her family will spend two weeks navigating the rocky tracks, high altitudes and steep inclines of the Himalayas before reaching base camp.
After flying out to the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu, Linda’s adventure will begin in the mountain town of Lukla.
From there, she will trek across 14 sites to reach the base camp, taking in spectacular scenery from panoramic mountain views to hillside monasteries and museums. The trip will take in holy Buddhist monasteries in Tyangboche, the spiritual centre of the Khumbu region, before climbing along the icy glaciers of the Lobuche mountain.
