Success in 2011 - Natural Trekking arrives at Everest Base Camp using Urban Poles™
Shortly before noon on Sunday April 24, 2011, Lois Tomlinson of Natural Trekking and 3 of her clients
arrive at Everest Base Camp with the help of Urban Poles™. The recent snow on the
rocky trail made the use of poles mandatory! It was an incredible moment to stand at the base of Everest watching mountaineers
prepare to ascend the highest mountain in the world!
Is it your dream to stand ag the base of the highest mountain in the world? Make it a reality and join us next year in April 2013 for our next Base Camp tour!
Join us on a once in a lifetime journey to Nepal...... land of the lovely sherpa people,
the Himalayas and, of course, famous Mount Everest or Sagarmatha.
On April 24, 2011, 4 of us successfully reached Everest Base Camp at 5364m. In May 2010, we were also successful in
reaching Everest Base Camp, along with the summits of Island Peak at 6160m and Mera Peak at 6654m! And now, we want to take you along with us
to experience this fabulous journey!

Climbing or Trekking Mt. Aconcagua in the Andes of Argentina, South America
Aconcagua, the Stone Sentinel as it is referred to, is the 'Rooftop of the Americas' and is the
highest mountain outside of the Himalayas. It is also one of the famous 7 Summits and a must climb!
As with Mt. Kilimanajro, the best way to see & experience Aconcagua is with local Argentinians.
Aconcagua Trek is owned by Rudy Parra and Heber Orona (who reached the summit of Mt. Everest in 1999 and was
the first Argentine to complete the prestigious 7 Summits).
With more than 30 years of experience on Aconcagua their expeditions have been perfected to
ensure clients the highest possible chance of success in reaching the summit. I have personally climbed
with Aconcagua Trek and they are organized, professional and fabulous!
