Everest Trails with Brigitte Muir for AHF

March 17, 2024 - April 2, 2024




Explore the less frequented trails

We explore the less frequented trails visited by only a handful of trekkers each year. Enroute we gain incredible views of the entire Himalayan range including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and more from our secluded camp at Tenkharka. We visit schools and a number of Buddhist monasteries and gompas built to accommodate the Sherpa and Tamang religious communities in the region.

An important dimension to the trek is an opportunity to sample local life through Brigitte’s family and friends. Brigitte has been frequenting the area since 2007 and made many connections with local people. You will also get a chance to appreciate the educational advances in the schools and communities. It includes work undertaken by Brigitte Muir, the first Australian woman to summit Everest and the first Australian to climb the highest peak on each continent, who is a devoted supporter of AHF’s flagship TTQE (Teacher Training, Quality Education) program in the Lower Solu Khumbu region of Nepal.

Solu and the whole of Nepal has seen many basic roads built where trails only existed prior. Although this changes the character of trekking in the area, it bears to remember that it makes life for the permanent inhabitants much easier (think trips to hospitals etc) and that many trails known to the local people still exist between places. It is using local knowledge that we will endeavour to always find the route less travelled.
