Explore Himalaya’s Year 2009 Review

Explore Himalaya’s Year 2009 Review

Posted Dec 23rd, 2009 under Company News,

Year 2009 was special for Explore Himalaya, as the company single handedly organized the highest skydiving programme in the world, Everest skydive 2009. ESD 2009 was organized in the month of October. Wendy Smith from New Zealand, Tom Noonan from USA and Jai Kishan from India created a new record by landing at Gorakh Shep, Kala Patthar plateau (17,192ft),  the highest drop zone in the world.

Everest emerged as a clear favorite among our trekking clients as EH organized treks to the Everest region for 43 groups in 2009. 20 groups trekked to the Annapurnas, while 5 groups preferred the less crowded  trails of Langtang. 39 groups went for  cultural tours and multi-activity sports like rafting, paragliding, mountain biking etc.

We operated a total of 59 tours (cultural & pilgrimage tours, trekking, expeditions) in Tibet and 4 in Bhutan.
