Everest Anniversary - Spring Expeditions & Walks, Training Climbs, Cho Oyu & Lhotse
 
Greetings Fellow Adventurer,

How are you? Are you preparing for the mountains by staying fit, walking and climbing in your local hills, not working too hard and relaxing with family, friends and colleagues? The last few weeks have brought a deep and thick layer of snow, so we are on the lookout for some late winter skiing and last minute fun snow climbs before heading to the Himalaya.

We are now 30 days away from our upcoming spring Everest summit, training climb, and basecamp walks in Nepal and Tibet and I am currently working on permits as we speak. Will you be joining us? I hope the answer is yes, as we have a great group of men and women of all ages signed up and just need you to complete the team.

My name is Dan Mazur, and I work for Summit Climb and Summit Trek, now in their 22nd year of summit climbing, camp 3 training, and walking to basecamp of our world's highest mountains. I am writing to you just 4 weeks before boarding a plane to peaceful and sunny Nepal where I will lead my 10th Everest expedition on our world's highest peak. In addition to leading our team of men and women of all ages to the summit of Everest, I am really looking forward to fun training climbs and walks with you to 7000 metres/23,000 feet on the west face of Everest, and the world's most famous Basecamp, with stunning views of Everest and her surrounding peaks.

 AUTUMN EVEREST EXPEDITION UPDATE: Skip the crowds and climb to the highest point on the planet in style. Dates are now available for the full Everest from Nepal expedition in August - October 2013 with expert leader Dan Mazur. 20 August to 20 October. 60 days in Nepal. This will be a small and select group, so please telephone me if you are interested.

CHO OYU - BEST TRAINING FOR EVEREST: Join us for Cho-Oyu at 8201 metres/26,906 feet,  known to be one of the most accessible of the world’s fourteen 8,000 metre/26,500 foot mountains and perhaps the best training for Everest. This is because the ascent to the summit plateau is short and direct, with a few small technical sections, less than 6 metres/20 feet high, climbed using fixed lines. Additionally, the mountain can be easily reached by four-wheel-drive vehicle, and the trail to camp 1 at 6,400 metres/21,100 feet, is basically a steep walk on talus slopes, often done in sturdy leather trekking boots with good ankle support. FOR MORE PLEASE GO TO www.ExpeditionChoOyu.com .

WE PAY YOU CASH FOR TELLING YOUR FRIENDS and bringing us new members. Be sure to tell your friends about what we are trying to do, and when they sign up, we will send you cash. We call it the "finder's fee", and pay this very frequently. It's our way of saying thanks to you for recommending your friends.

ARE YOU FIT? We want you to be in shape for your walk or climb, so please send us an email with your training inquiry and we will forward fitness programme recommendations.

CAN'T GO IN 2013? Please join us in 2014 & 2015, as all of the trips mentioned run each year.

Thanks for reading, and I would like to speak to you personally and at length about our favourite topic: MOUNTAINS. Please email, telephone, Skype or Facebook me at your earliest opportunity.

I look forward to chatting, meeting, and to climbing and walking together in Nepal and Tibet. Thank you very much. Welcome to Our Team and Best Mountain Regards!
