Senior Citizen Everest Trek

Overview

Senior Citizen Everest Trek

 

Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind. It is an inspirational quote by famous athlete Jackie Joyner. There are numerous examples of age defying heroics across the globe. However not all of us are blessed by longevity or good health. But we can still dream, accomplish and give credence to. The best time to do any kinds of things is now. Nepal Hiking Himalaya presents Senior Citizen Everest Trek. In fact Nepal is good destination for elderly trekkers and kids.

There are many people in this world who weren’t able to accomplish their all goals. When younger, due to various works, lack of finance, lack of time and family commitments, you might have held back. Well, maybe now’s your time to quench that thirst of travelling.

When we get older all the materialistic things don’t matter at all. The thing that matters is the experiences. Travel tales are what makes our life meaningful and colorful. Senior Citizen Everest Trek definitely helps you garner all the momentous events. Moreover, collecting the memory of being at the base camp of Mt. Everest is definitely worthwhile.

Challenge the world’s tallest mountain. Defy all odds!

Senior Citizen Everest Trek is well thought trekking package. Travel planners of Nepal Hiking Himalaya knitted the itinerary meticulously. Trekking as high as 5364 m from sea level and very thin air is definitely challenging for senior citizens. But we make it as risk free as possible.

Our years of experiences on the high altitude and terrains of Everest region give us confidence in launching the trip.

There are many people across the globe who are very old at 35 and those that are very young at 80 years old. However as we get older it’s highly important than ever to keep ourselves fit and motivated. Don’t just sit on your armchair.

Explore the Sherpa villages and recollect your life memories on the foothill of snowy mountains. We help you reach the base camp of world’s tallest mountain Mt. Everest.
