The Rest of Everest DVD Giveaway: Week 5 Winner!

Rest of Everest Logo small
The winner in our fifth, and final, Rest of Everest DVD Giveaway contest is Robin Rongey of Edwardsville, IL. Robin has won a copy of Everest {the other side}, which is the wonderful film from which the Rest of Everest video podcast was started. Congrats Robin, I’ll get the DVD out to you as soon as I can.

I’d like to thank everyone for entering this contest over the past month or so. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope all the winners are enjoying the DVD as much as I have. Hopefully it helped to introduce some of you to this wonderful podcast that did a great job of spotlighting every aspect of a climb of Everest, and continues to cover all kinds of adventures in the Himalaya. If you’re not already watching it on an (almost) weekly basis, then you really should be. It is consistently well filmed, well edited, and very informative on a subject we all love, the Himalaya and the tallest mountain on the planet.

Besides finding all of the episodes (there are 130 of them to date) on the website you can also subscribe to the podcast directly in iTunes by clicking here.

  1. Congrats to everyone who won a copy of my film!

    Kraig, you did a great job with the contest. I really enjoyed the questions you came up with.

    So, I'd say this "experiment" was a success.

    Maybe we can do another one in a few months after we're both back from our separate Everest treks? Everyone, he'll be on the South Side in Nepal and I'll be on the East and North Sides in Tibet…at the same time! Our itineraries are just different enough that we'll miss each other in Kathmandu. What a bummer! As for both being at Everest, we'll be so close, yet worlds apart.

    In any case I may have some handmade-in-Kathmandu "Rest of Everest" merchandise to send to The Adventure Blog.

    I love it when a plan comes together…

  2. Thanks for the kind words Jon. I think everyone enjoyed the contest and the DVD is a great give away. I hope it's been a big success for you. It's really well done.

    I'm looking forward to my trek as I know you are as well. It's too bad we won't be able to connect, but I'm sure we'll be able to change that in the future. I look forward to hearing all about your latest Himalayan adventure when we can connect afterwards.

    And I'd definitely love to collaborate more in the future if we can. I'm sure "Rest of Everest" merchandise would be quite popular, and I'm toying with getting some "Adventure Blog" gear while I'm there too. 🙂

    Hope all is well with you and you're feeling better today.

    Kraig

  3. Dear Travellers,
    !!Namaste and warm Greetings from Himalayan Country Nepal!!

    My name is Sanjib Adhikari. As an independent trekking guide and tour operator in Nepal, I would like to introduce myself to you.
    I was born and grown up in the rugged and remote district in the Central Himalayan region. I started my career in the adventure tourism at the very young age after completing my high school level studies, working for different trekking companies for seven years in different capacities sometimes as porter, assistant guide and now working as an Independent trekking guide. I have already obtained trekking guide license from the ministry of tourism, government of Nepal.
    I have guided many international groups especially from Europe, USA, Canada, Australia in Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Mustang, Dolpo, Kanchanjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and Helambu regions in Nepal and Mt. Kailash, Lasha in tibet also Ladak and Sikkim in India and have thus gained diversified experience and extensive knowledge on geography, religion, culture, local flora and fauna and on environmental issues in the areas where I personally organized the treks. My first experience on many trekking routes has made me an expert on making unique trekking itineraries as per the tastes, interests and budget of the western clients. For those international trekkers who want to climb high mountain passes and peaks, I can also organize this challenging and rewarding adventure. My experience in adventure tourism includes climbing to Mera peak, Island peak, Kalapathar, Gokyo peak, Tseryo ri and I have led expeditions across many high passes in Nepal, Larkye pass, Ampulapcha Pass, Chola pass, Renjula pass, Tashilapcha pass, Ganjala pass, thorong pass, Tilicho pass, (Mesokantola pass).
    There are many types of treks available in Nepal, ranging from relaxed easy trekking where you can experience Nepalese Culture and Village life staying overnight in local lodges (tea-houses) in popular regions, to remote and restricted areas trekking that are off the beaten track and seldom visited by foreigners. All treks offer spectacular scenery and a good experience about Nepalese culture. If anyone wants to have tailor made treks, I can meet their requirements.
    From time to time I keep upgrading my skills and knowledge by taking refresher trainings on safety, sanitation, first–aid, emergency rescue, hygiene and cooking. I am fluent in English, Chinese and computer literate. I can explain all tourism related topics to the best of my knowledge.
    My clients have been very pleased with my professional guiding services, and you may read some of their comments on my website. Please contact me at the email address listed below if you have any questions or would like to discuss a possible trek in Nepal! I will look forward to hearing from you!
