With an elevation drop of 4600m this awesome descent alone will provide ample material for post ride coffee conversations for years to come.Another highlight will undoubtedly be a visit to Mount Everest base camp to witness first hand the towering beauty of the worlds highest peak.The journey will be long and the challenge won�t be easy but for those who join us on this adventure a sense of achievement is guaranteed.
