Virtual Everest 2020 – Support the Sherpas

Please help the Nepali Sherpa.

Mountain tourism is one of the backbones of Nepal’s economy, and Everest climbers alone contribute more than $300 million to the country, which ranks as one of the poorest in the world. The decision to stop all Spring 2020 climbing expeditions will deliver a major blow to the local communities whose economic livelihoods rely on trekking and mountaineering tourism.

Your generosity can help the Sherpa families impacted by this critical financial disaster.  All funds raised will go directly to our Nepal staff.
