Support our friends in Nepal

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Nepal government closed this spring’s mountaineering & trekking season.  This immediately wiped-out the income of Sherpas, guides, porters, cooks and all those who work in the mountains of Nepal.  Please help us now to support them and their families.

Any donation you are able to make via the GoFundMe website will go to “Sherpa Aid” from where it will be sent to Nepal and distributed to those most in need.

To help, Everest climber and chronicler, Alan Arnette is doing a “Virtual Everest 2020 Coverage” (visit: which we are supporting across social media. Starting on 2 April,  Alan plans to do a daily blog based on his own Himalayan experiences; two expeditions to Lhotse plus four to Everest featuring his summit in 2011.

Looking to the future, you can provide long-term support to Himalayan communities by climbing or trekking in Nepal as soon as this crisis has passed and we’re all able to travel once more.

Our aim and focus is to ensure that Jagged Globe will be the same with the same people working for us after the crisis as they were before, whether they work in the UK or overseas.
