Peaks and Passes Day 12: April 26

Expedition Itinerary Plan for Day 12:

Leaving our base camp we trek up onto the glacier and traverse to the Mera La. We make camp 100 metres below the pass on the Hongu side. Camp (5300m).

Fun Fact of the Day


The Sherpas are an ethnic group from mostly the eastern mountainous part of Nepal. Many are employed by mountain expeditions as they do not suffer the effect of altitude and due to their genetics and upbringing. Many groups refer to their porters as Sherpas.

Todayโ€™s Activity: Everest Rescue

Purpose: To get your entire team to safety

Materials Needed: Per group: 1 scooter and one mat. Also one general mat in the center of the gym. Rope to tie onto the scooter

The activity is done by diving the class into four groups with one scooter and one mat in each corner of the gym. Each group is stranded on their mat and must get rescued by getting from their mat to the mat in the center of the gym. The first member starts on the scooter and rides to their safety mat. Once there, they slide the scooter back to their group members on the central mat (while holding onto the rope attached). The next group member then sits on the scooter, and is pulled to the safety mat by the person who was just rescued. This is repeated until the entire team has been rescued safely.

What was the best strategy to get everyone across safely? Was communication important?
