  • Shaun the Sherpa's Quest for Everest

    A Northern Ireland Veteran is planning to trek to Mount Everest basecamp in aid of Help for Heroes.

    "Shaun the Sherpa" who lost his son Phillip in Afghanistan has undertaken the challenge to raise money for the charity who provide help and support for wounded members of our armed forces and their families when they need it most.

    After taking an internal flight from Kathmandu to Lukla which is the gateway to the Everest region, he'll begin his trek to Everest Base Camp following the route on the above map. Tenzing-Hillary airport is also known as Lukla airport, the history channel program's Most Extreme Airports ranked it as the most dangerous airport in the world!
