A trip you don't want to miss!

 

Join Save One Life on a trip to Mount Everest!
April 14- May 1, 2023

Why Everest Base Camp?

 

Nepal and Everest have a special connection with Save One Life. In 2017, executive director Chris Bombardier became the first person with hemophilia to summit Mt. Everest. His journey and interaction with the hemophilia community was documented in the Bombardier Blood. 

Returning to Nepal and trekking to Everest Base Camp on the sixth anniversary of his summit with supporters of Save One Life will not only further the mission of Save One Life through funds raised but also highlight the Nepalese bleeding disorder community.

 

Who can come?

Anyone!

For those who want to travel to Nepal but cannot participate in the trek to basecamp, a scenic flight around Mt. Everest will be arranged. This flight circles the mountain and provides exceptional views. After completing the flight, the trip will continue to the Chitwan National Park where participants will have the chance to see elephants, rhinos and tigers!
