Everest Base Camp Hike Voted One of the World's Dream Trails

Everest Base Camp Hike Voted One of the World's Dream Trails
National Geographic just released their list of 20 Dream Trails from all over the globe. It came as no surprise to us here at Wildland that the Everest Base Camp trek made the cut but don't just take our word for it! Check out the excerpt from the NG article below: This year we asked 20 outdoor luminaries—from trail runners to CEOs to beloved authors—about the trails they dream about. Here are their picks for the world's best hikes. Ready for adventure? Hiker: Jim Whittaker, mountaineer In His Words I would recommend the trek to Everest Base Camp to anybody. The people are incredible, the scenery can't be beat, and you get to take a look at Everest or Chomolungma, meaning the "Goddess Mother of the World." It's spectacular just to see the highest point on planet Earth. In 1963, it was a 185-mile trip. These days you can start by flying...

She starts off with, "Suprise! You don't need to be an extreme athlete to tackle Nepal!" See what else she had to say below: Has the country recovered from the April 2015 earthquakes?

Leaving a Footprint of Help to Stop Human Trafficking in Nepal

Leaving a Footprint of Help to Stop Human Trafficking in Nepal
When Seattle-based Wildland alumni traveler, Debbie Daniels, called to ask if we would make a financial contributioin to her "Nepal 2015 Adventure" we said yes! Because Debbie was signing up for one of the most purposeful and meaningful adventures of her life: to help stop human trafficking of Nepalese girls. She was also going to help with the post-earthquake rebuilding campaign.    She was traveling in a small working group with our friend and colleague, Chris MacKay, founder of Crooked Trails , a non-profit travel organization that operates some of the most impactful community-based tourism initiatives we know. When Debbie made the ask, Wildland contributed to this initiative, and we have subsequently committed to further supporting the Maiti Nepal project through our own Nepal treks and adventures .     Here's Debbie's report:    The experience lives on and on inside of me.    I am only now able to...
