The Rest of Everest: Everest Trek 2009 Teaser!

Rest of Everest Logo small
Fans of The Rest of Everest have had to wait awhile between episodes thanks to podcast creator Jon Miller going off to Nepal, along with Chris Marquardt of Tips From the Top Floor fame, to trek to Everest Base Camp along with 10 very lucky other people. Along the way, Jon and Chris conducted videography and photography workshops as they hiked through the Himalaya.

I was really hoping to go on this trip, but do to some scheduling issues, I wasn’t able to make it, but fortunately for all of us, Jon has done his usual great job of capturing the entire experience on video, and in the weeks ahead, he’ll be sharing the entire trekking experience with us. In these episodes, we’ll actually get the great indicator of what it’s like to trek to Everest BC on the South Side in Nepal.

In preparation for this series of videos to begin soon, Jon has put together a teaser video of what we can expect. Now, in movie terms, a teaser is generally a very short video that only gives you a small taste of what is to come in the full product. But no one ever accuses Jon of not giving us our moneys worth. This “teaser” is more than 38 minutes in length, and it really sets the mood of the trip, beginning in Kathmandu, heading off to Lukla, and eventually trekking up the Khumbu Valley in the shadow of some of the biggest mountains on the planet.

I have a feeling after watching these videos, I’ll be even more ready to visit Nepal and the Everest region.

You can check out the video for yourself by downloading it directly from the Rest of Everest website or you can find it in iTunes as well. Great stuff. More to come soon, and I can’t wait.

  1. The Imaginative Mystery Adventure Tour sounds really interesting – have you heard about it? All you're told is the departure date, how long you will be away and what you need to pack. You could be going to your dream destination … or you could be going somewhere you would never have considered. Would you hand over your holiday budget for a journey into the unknown? The mystery tour concept was once limited to day trips and overnight escapes but next month a group of adventurous travellers will set off on a 15-day international mystery tour with tour operator Imaginative Traveller ( A group of fifteen will depart from London's Heathrow Airport to a destination unknown, at a cost of £2099 for 15 days tomorrow 20th June. They have been told to take clothes suitable for warm countries that will become cooler at night, with a fleece or jacket for evening. The temperature is likely to be between 30 degrees Celsuis during the day and 15 degrees Celsius at night, although of course that cannot be guaranteed. On some occasions it will be necessary for both men and women to dress modestly – women may find a scarf useful. There will also be times when shorts can be worn. You should bring solid walking boots/shoes and a raincoat – Vaccinations: No mandatory vaccinations. They need to be up to date with all normal vaccinations (Hepatitis A and B, Polio, Tetanus).

    Any idea where you think they will be going in your adventure travel experience?
