Families of the
Nepalese mountain guides tragically killed in 2014 avalanche on Everest
donated to each family
When an avalanche near Mt. Everest base camp killed 16 Nepalese mountains guides on April 18th 2014, HOP knew we had to get involved. Much of HOP’s history is linked to the Khumbu Valley and Everest Base Camp, and it is one of WWTrek’s main destinations. Helping the families of those killed in the avalanche was one small way we could give back to the community for its support of our treks. HOP and Snowbird held a fundraiser to help the families of those lost in the avalanche. With a total of $27,000 raised, HOP presented each family with a gift averaging $1,500.
