Crows to return to Everest

Crows Trek Everest The Crows will once again Trek Mount Everest in 2017 thanks to the Crows Children's Foundation.

After the success of last year’s Base Camp Everest trek, the Crows Children’s Foundation is providing another opportunity for people to go on the journey of a lifetime in 2017.

This trek is probably one of the most famous in the world, and with good reason.

The journey from Nepal’s vibrant capital, Kathmandu, via twin-engine plane to Lukla and on into the very heart of the Nepali Himalaya is simply spectacular. Majestic snow-capped peaks line the steep sided valleys and jaw-dropping views await you at almost every turn. The beauty of the scenery is matched only by the famous warmth and hospitality of the Nepalese who will be looking after you throughout your trip.

Adelaide Football Club Chief Operating Officer Nigel Smart took part in the inaugural trek in 2016. Hear Smart recount the experience in the video showcased at the top of the story.

Others who participated shared comments such as:

“This was the only truly amazing thing I have ever done.”

“This has been the most unforgettable experience!”

“This trek will test you in ways you cannot understand but give back to you more than you ask.”

Departing on October 15 and hosted by Foundation Board member and Paralympic gold medallist Katrina Webb, with several current Crows players also keen to participate, join us on an expedition like no other.

Always had it on your bucket list? Always wanted to see Everest? Well now is your chance, while supporting the charity arm of the Club at the same time.

The trek is fully hosted by Charity Expedition Nepal who will take care of your every need.

We ask each trekker to raise a minimum of $1500 to support to Crows Children’s Foundation and the people of Nepal, who are still reeling from the 2015 earthquake which killed more than 8,000 people.
