Exclusive invitation to join our autumn treks

Greetings walking, trekking, and hiking enthusiast,

I hope you are well and having a wonderful 2013 so far.

We have been extremely busy and have just experienced our most successful ever Himalayan walking, trekking, and hiking  season, with our Everest Trek teams of men and women of all ages reaching basecamp and achieving their goals.

Our Everest Training climbs on the Tibet and Nepal side of Everest and basecamp treks all went well.

Also this spring we had three projects with the Mount Everest Foundation for Sustainable Development. you can read all about it on our website here: http://www.summitclimb.com/new/default.asp?linktype=r&mtype=smenu&vid=948&nid=221 .

The reason I am writing to you today is because you have previously expressed an interest in our Everest basecamp trek, Climate change trek, Service trek or Sherpa training school trek and this is a quick reminder that the booking deadline for all of these treks is fast approaching –10th September. We have to submit member's passport scans for the permit and we need all completed paperwork and payments prior to then. INEXPENSIVE PLANE TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE. Return flights need to be booked now for the most favourable prices. Please ring or email if you need assistance in finding the cheapest and best fares and routes.
