Trek to Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes

Peter and Miriam Hall will travel to Kathmandu in Nepal this November then onto Lukla to begin the arduous journey to Everest Base Camp. The couple are funding the trip from their own resources but hope that other people will support them in their efforts by making a donation to North Ayrshire Foodbank.

Miriam, who works as a solicitor in Kilmarnock said: “We will be walking from Lukla to Base Camp and then on to the Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri, Kala Pattar and Cho La Pass. It is a gruelling trek which will challenge us both physically and mentally.

“We selected the expedition provider on the basis of its ethical commitments—they pay the Sherpas and guides a proper wage, and they support learning and education initiatives in Nepal. We also aim to be as green as possible and will be carrying a portable solar panel to use for our electrical requirements.”

Husband Peter added: “This will be a huge challenge for us, and we are conscious that many people who undertake this trek are forced to drop out because they are unable to acclimatise to the low oxygen levels at such high altitudes.

Although we are both experienced hill walkers, we have never undertaken a trek like this before, but we fully intend to give it our best shot and complete the expedition”

The couple will be giving a presentation at the Mobile Cinema in the Ardrossan Church of the Nazarene in August and there will be a special showing of the Everest movie.
