In Hillary’s Footsteps

Next spring ‘The Mountain Company’ will be doing a once in a lifetime trek to Mount Everest Base Camp called ‘In Hillary’s Footsteps’, starting on the 30th March to the 18th April 2019. The trek will be led by Edmund Hillary’s son, Peter and mountaineer Robert Anderson.

Peter has reached the summit of Mount Everest twice, once in 1990 and again in 2002. Robert has also stood on the summit twice.

Peter’s two sons, George and Alexander Hillary will be on the trek to share their personal insights and history of the iconic first ascent of Mount Everest.

The trek has been customised to reflect the Hillary legacy, meeting Sherpas and visiting unique places full of climbing and Nepalese history.

This is a rare opportunity for a memorable trek with your own family or friends, as well as meeting new friends along the way.
